If you are looking to repair minor tooth damage or enhance the cosmetic appearance of your teeth, you may find that dental veneers are the way to go. Our dentist, Dr. Robert C. Freeman, can provide further information on how your smile can benefit from this type of dental restoration. They can be an excellent option for cosmetic dentistry, and proper care can keep them looking great.

Dental veneers may be ideal to repair minor dental flaws such as discoloration and tooth stains. They also go by the name of laminates, and these porcelain shells are wafer thin so that they can cover the front tooth surface to offer an improved aesthetic and provide a second layer of protection to keep the tooth enamel strong.

However, because veneers don’t cover the whole tooth, only the front surface, your teeth can still be vulnerable to tooth decay if they don’t receive proper care. We encourage you to maintain effective habits of brushing and flossing your smile every day so that you can keep both your veneers and your overall smile looking beautiful. Over time, veneers can sustain damage such as cracks, staining and worn-off cement, especially if they aren’t cared for with proper oral hygiene habits. We encourage you to report any issues with your veneers to our dentist so that we can help your veneers last as long as 10 years.

If you are considering having dental veneers in Knoxville, Tennessee, you are welcome to contact Robert C. Freeman, DDS at 865-577-7535 today to arrange a consultation with our dentist.
