Sometimes, your teeth may bear flaws which ruin the entire aesthetic of your smile. While these imperfections may not affect the structural integrity of your teeth, that is your teeth may not crumble or break just because there are some minor chips or fractures on your teeth, but they can definitely take a toll on your smile. So what is Dr. David Trotter’s solution to this smile problem? Veneers. Dr. Trotter and the rest of his Sevierville, TN dental team can produce high quality porcelain veneers which are guaranteed to bring back the lost luster of your smile.
What are porcelain veneers?
If you haven’t heard about veneers before, then you may have heard about laminates. Synonymous with dental laminates, veneers are thin facades which resemble each individual tooth and are pasted on the front surfaces in order to conceal any imperfections which may be found on these conspicuous areas. While veneers can be made using composite resin material, porcelain veneers are more durable and life-like compared to the former. Dr. Trotter and his Sevierville, TN dental team specialize in the manufacturing of porcelain veneers.
What are porcelain veneers for?
When it comes to reconstructive dentistry, there are two dental works which are often used by dentists to improve the aesthetics and structure of your teeth — crowns and veneers. Veneers are used in order to remedy dental flaws which are only superficial and do not really do anything to ruin the integrity of the structure of your teeth. On the other hand, cracks and worn out biting surfaces must be reconstructed with the help of a dental work which encapsulates the entire structure of your tooth, such as in the form of porcelain crowns. Below are some of the reasons why you might need to get porcelain veneers:
Chips- Chips are tiny sections of your teeth which have been chipped off either because of a facial accident or because you’ve bitten into an object which is extremely dense and hard. While you can always have the chip improved with the help of a dental bonding procedure, porcelain veneers allow for a cleaner and more seamless look since the entire surface would be covered.
Fractures- Known also as tiny break lines which have emerged on the surface of your teeth, fractures develop due to facial injuries, chewing on hard objects such as ice, as well as teeth grinding. Fractures do not compromise the structure of your teeth but they do allow for substances to enter into the pulp layer of your teeth on top of some of them being extremely conspicuously that they ruin the beauty of your teeth.
Stained Teeth- Extremely discolored teeth, such as stains that are all the way in the inner layers of your teeth, may not do well with teeth whitening agents, but they can instantly be remedied with the help of porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers have the same translucency as the natural dental enamel of your teeth making them incredibly realistic.
