What is the process of adding a veneer to teeth for Arden area patients?
Patients who want to address esthetic concerns within their smile will take the time to visit a cosmetic dentist in the Arden area such as Dr. Christopher Port. Dr. Christopher Port and the team of the Asheville Smile Center encourage patients to take the time to learn about the many ways in which they can rejuvenate their smile. For many, porcelain veneers are a great way to disguise problem teeth.
Veneers are porcelain restorations that are made to cover up the front facing of a tooth. They are fabricated to match the existing teeth within the smile to look just as beautiful and natural when bonded into place by a quality dentist. Dr. Christopher Port uses porcelain for these restorations because porcelain is a ceramic material that closely mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel. These restorations are extremely popular for patients who want to make dramatic, cosmetic changes to the look of their smile.
Many patients in the Arden area who are considering porcelain veneers ask, what is the process of adding a veneer to teeth? The process starts with a consultation appointment at the Asheville Smile Center. This is an appointment that allows patients the chance to ask questions to their dentist to better understand the advantages of restorations such as veneers. An examination is done to determine if patients are appropriate candidates. Once the patient and dentist have decided that veneers are best, preparations begin. The tooth (or teeth) are prepared by removing a very thin portion of enamel from the front of the tooth. A mold is made of the tooth and mailed off to a ceramist in a dental laboratory who follows strict instructions from Dr. Christopher Port regarding the shape, size, and color of the new restoration. Within a few weeks, the final veneer is returned to the dental office and is bonded into place. Patients leave the practice of the Asheville Smile Center with a rejuvenated smile.
