FAQs on Porcelain Veneers

Asheville, NC area dentist answers, what are veneers?

Restoring the smile is easy with a quality cosmetic dentist such as Dr. Christopher Port of the Asheville Smile Center in NC. His practice uses the most attractive materials to provide natural-looking enhancements to the smile. When patients in the Asheville, NC area are interested in rejuvenating their smiles in a non-invasive, simple manner, they may be introduced to the concept of veneers.

What are veneers? Veneers are thin porcelain shells, which are custom-made for patients to cover areas of imperfections. These dental restorations are bonded over the front of problematic teeth to make them look more attractive. Veneers are used in situations where patients want to disguise breakage, staining, or misalignment in a long-term fashion.

Dr. Christopher Port of the Asheville Smile Center provides veneers for patients who are interested in transforming the appearance of their teeth. Instead of having patients undergo years of orthodontics or deal with replacing composite resin bonding every few years, patients can enjoy decades of repair with porcelain veneers.

This method of repairing the smile takes approximately one to two weeks from start to finish. Patients first consult with Dr. Christopher Port to determine if they are candidates for this method of restoration. Patients who have veneers placed must be of good oral health and free of gum disease and cavities. Patients must also understand how to care for their veneers to improve their longevity and keep them looking their best. Once patients have decided porcelain veneers are right for them, preparations are made to the teeth, which require the removal of some of the enamel. Impressions are made after this has been done, and these molds are sent to an outside laboratory where a trained, experienced ceramist fabricates the veneers. Once complete, they are sent to the Asheville Smile Center where patients return for the final placement.

The process from start to finish is rather fast compared to alternative methods of addressing these imperfections. Dr. Christopher Port is happy to discuss with patients the advantages of veneers over other restorations and decide who is best suited for this cosmetic dental treatment.
