FAQs on Porcelain Veneers

How do veneers work for hiding crooked teeth for Arden area patients?

When patients visit the team of the Asheville Smile Center to learn about cosmetic solutions for their smile, they are often introduced to a wide range of options that may be used to achieve similar results. Patients with crooked teeth may feel as though orthodontics is their only option for fixing imperfect alignment. However, there are other ways to do so. For patients with a single tooth or just a few in the smile that may benefit from being a little bit straighter, Dr. Christopher Port may suggest porcelain veneers.

How do porcelain veneers work for crooked teeth? Porcelain veneers are very thin shells of porcelain that are custom-made and bonded over the front facing of a tooth to disguise problem areas. When teeth are crooked, these veneers can be strategically placed in order to give the impression of a straight smile. Dr. Christopher Port finds that this is more affordable, faster, and just as effective as dealing with orthodontics to correct alignment.

Patients can also use porcelain veneers to cover up other issues including permanent staining, unusually shaped teeth, or even to disguise small gaps between teeth. Our team can consult with patients to find out if veneers may be a desirable option for repairing aesthetic issues. Dr. Christopher Port and his team work together with patients to develop a treatment plan that meets their needs, stays within their budget, and gives them the smile they want to feel more confident with themselves and the way they look.

Porcelain veneers are made throughout a process that can take a few weeks. It starts with consultation regarding whether or not veneers are appropriate for the smile. Once patients have decided to pursue this option, they need to have their teeth prepared with the removal of a thin amount of natural tooth enamel. Impressions are made and mailed to a ceramist who fabricates the new veneer based on dental instructions. Patients return back to the practice for permanent placement.

If you are ready to discuss the possibility of improving the smile with cosmetic dentistry, contact Dr. Christopher Port today to book a consultation visit and educate yourself on the ways in which porcelain veneers can enhance the natural smile.

I have such high anxiety of going to the dentist. Haven’t been in 4 years because of it. Alivia talk me through what they do for patients with anxiety and made me feel easy about coming in. Then Melissa my hygienist was so comforting and made me feel easy through my whole cleaning. She also payed attention to every concern I brought up. I would recommend 100%. Thank you Asheville Smiles for making this experience awesome and helping me look forward to my next appointment for the first time.
