There are many general and cosmetic dentistry options for patients wanting everything from a subtle change to a complete smile makeover! One of the most popular options are dental veneers, including porcelain veneers.
Charlotte cosmetic dentist Dr. Richard Van Gurp offers dental patients both composite resin and porcelain veneers as a cosmetic option for those seeking a change to their smile as well as to treat a variety of dental problems:
- Close spaces between teeth
- Improve the appearance of crooked teeth
- Repair chipped or broken teeth
- Cover stained or discolored teeth
While composite veneers, also known as tooth bonding, are removable veneers that are attached directly to the tooth, porcelain veneers are permanent and can last for many years with proper oral hygiene, including regular preventive care visits to Dr. Van Gurp for thorough dental cleanings and exams. Porcelain veneers are made from a translucent material and both appear and function just like a natural tooth. They are also highly stain resistant, offering years of bright, white smiles!
Dr. Van Gurp will perform a thorough exam and recommend the best treatment option to suit a patient’s oral health needs, their personal goals and their budget. Porcelain veneers may be more costly up front, but they can provide years of comfortable, natural looking results.
Dr. Van Gurp also offers patients the convenience of same day treatment: using CEREC technology, Dr. Van Gurp can fit, create and place a porcelain restoration in a single visit. Dr. Van Gurp is one of a few Charlotte cosmetic dentists that offer this same day service for restorations. Traditionally, porcelain veneers and similar restorations require several visits to complete. The porcelain veneer procedure typically produces only mild tenderness that will go away within a day or two.
Porcelain veneers may offer the solution to your dental health issue or cosmetic concerns: schedule a visit with Dr. Van Gurp to discuss your options.
