Porcelain veneers are one of the fastest and most esthetic means available to correct a variety of cosmetic imperfections in your smile. These customized shells are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth to provide aligned, bright, natural looking smiles. In as little as two weeks, they can correct flaws that may have been a source of embarrassment for years. If you are considering a cosmetic smile enhancement, porcelain veneers may be the only treatment that you need to have the smile of your dreams.
Any dentist can claim to be a cosmetic dentist because it is not a specialty recognized by the American Dental Association, so therefore there are no certification requirements. Genuine cosmetic dentistry requires extensive training, experience, and a significant commitment of time, energy, and money to master the skills required. It takes continuing education to understand the latest materials and learn to use them properly. An added element that is crucial to cosmetic dentistry is something that cannot be learned, it takes an inborn artistic eye and an understanding of the elements of beauty in a face.

The doctor uses porcelain veneers to correct a variety of imperfections:
- Spaces or gaps between teeth
- Cracked, chipped, or damaged teeth
- Uneven, crooked, or recessed teeth
- Asymmetry, or worn enamel
- Teeth that are too long or too short
- Discolored teeth that do not respond to whitening treatments
Porcelain veneers are a terrific choice because they are natural looking, durable, and resistant to stains. However, Biltmore Dental Center offers a number of alternative treatments if it is determined that veneers are not the best choice for you. Crowns, bridges, teeth whitening, white fillings, Invisalign, braces, and dental implants are available if they would be a better choice to correct your cosmetic concerns.
