Serving Choto, Northshore, and surrounding areas of Knoxville, TN

Looking to improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, crooked, or uneven? Your Knoxville cosmetic dentist at Choto Family Dentistry can resolve any of these issues by installing beautiful veneers. An ultra-thin layer of high-quality porcelain placed over the front of a tooth or multiple teeth, veneers conceal flaws and imperfections, giving you a bright and beautiful smile with natural-looking results.

Here are some reasons why you should consider having veneers installed to improve the appearance of your smile.

Veneers are versatile

Veneers can be used to treat an assortment of cosmetic issues, including:

  • Teeth that are stained or discolored, especially those that have not responded well to whitening treatments
  • Teeth that have small chips, cracks or fractures
  • Concealing a small gap between two teeth
  • Lengthening a tooth that appears too short or small
  • Correcting crooked teeth

Veneers also can be installed to resolve minor crookedness across several teeth. Since veneers can be completed in as little as a couple of weeks, you can have straight teeth without the need for orthodontics! Keep in mind, however, that veneers cannot change bite misalignment, only improve the appearance of crooked teeth. Speak with your cosmetic dentist in Choto to find out if veneers are right for you.

Veneers look natural

At Choto Family Dentistry, we use veneers that have been crafted from high-quality dental porcelain. This same material is used to make many of our other beautiful dental restorations. Our porcelain is resistant to being stained from the consumption of coffee, and wine, as well as other lifestyle habits that tend to stain teeth. Dental porcelain can be color-matched to the same shade as your other healthy natural teeth if only one or two are being installed. However, if you wish to have permanently white teeth, your new veneers can be chosen in a much lighter shade than your existing natural teeth. The porcelain is translucent in the sense that it mimics the light-reflecting qualities of natural tooth enamel. Because of this, once a porcelain veneer is installed, it is indistinguishable from a natural, healthy tooth.

Veneers have evolved. Receiving traditional porcelain veneers means having a portion of the healthy tooth structure removed. This helps smooth the teeth so that the veneers can be applied. However, Choto Family Dentistry is proud to offer DuraThin Veneers and Lumineers. Representing the latest advancement in cosmetic dental technology, DuraThin Veneers and Lumineers are very thin porcelain veneers that can be bonded to the front of teeth without having to remove any of the existing tooth structure. Ideal for patients who wish to leave their natural tooth structure unchanged or who may want a less permanent option, veneers may be the right cosmetic dentistry choice for you.

Only a licensed DuraThin dentist is allowed to use and install DuraThin Veneers. The same goes for Lumineers as well. At Choto Family Dentistry, we are fortunate enough to have dentists licensed to perform either of these procedures.

Often a veneer is just part of the plan to help a patient attain the smile of their dreams. Your local Knoxville cosmetic dentist can install veneers as part of a plan of different cosmetic procedures known as a smile makeover.
