Should you consider a porcelain veneer in Asheville?
Your smile can be your greatest social asset and a source of pride. It can also be a source of embarrassment if you aren’t happy with the appearance of your teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can literally change your life with a procedure a simple as the placement of a porcelain veneer. The advanced cosmetic dentistry skills of Dr. Christopher Port give Asheville residents a reason to smile.
Are you a good candidate for porcelain veneers?
This versatile option can correct a number of aesthetic issues involving one or more teeth. Veneers are not intended to repair significant damage or decay. They are paper-thin shells of natural looking porcelain bonded to the surface of the tooth. Worn teeth can be built up before placement of veneers, but veneers do little to strengthen a compromised tooth structure because they are so thin. Options such as crowns and bridges may be recommended for teeth that need strengthening and protecting. However, for primarily cosmetic issues, there is very little a porcelain veneer can’t do.
Veneers can effectively cover one or more teeth that are
- Chipped, cracked, or worn
- Discolored and not responsive to whitening gel
- Misaligned, gapped, or unevenly spaced
- Too large or too small
- Crooked or irregularly shaped
When you come to Asheville Smile Center, Dr. Port will begin by examining the current condition of your smile and discussing your goals. He will explain your cosmetic and restorative dentistry options and help you make the best decision for your situation. Although there may be alternatives available, many patients choose dental veneers for several reasons.
