At Rebol Family Dentistry, we help our patients create their dream smiles using only the best cosmetic dentistry solutions. Our dentists may recommend porcelain veneers for patients interested in achieving a complete smile makeover. Porcelain veneers are custom caps that replace only the front-facing portion of your natural tooth.
Depending on your cosmetic and budgetary goals, you can get one veneer or a mouth full of veneers. Porcelain veneers can help you correct many cosmetic issues for a beautiful finished result, and they are great for correcting discolored, misshapen, chipped, or slightly crooked teeth.

Porcelain Veneers in Asheville, NC
Dr. Rebol and Dr. Sparks are experienced cosmetic dentists in Asheville, NC. Together, they have helped many patients achieve their dream smiles with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin shells that cosmetically conceal major blemishes on your dental structures.
They are designed to be as thin as possible to ensure a minimally invasive attachment procedure. You don’t have to worry about extensive enamel removal with porcelain veneers. This makes them perfect for concealing issues within your top front eight teeth and creating a more symmetrical smile.
Porcelain Veneers vs. Dental Crowns
Many patients wonder about the differences between cosmetic porcelain veneers and restorative dental crowns. While porcelain veneers cover the front-facing portion of your tooth, dental crowns replace the entire exterior of your tooth. With dental crowns, we place the prosthetic tooth over the foundational core of your natural tooth to replace the entire tooth.
This is why dental crowns are considered a restorative solution, while veneers are considered a cosmetic solution. Dental crowns require significantly more enamel removal than veneers and are usually only recommended to correct severely damaged teeth.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are an ideal solution for a wide variety of cosmetic dental problems due to them fully covering the front and sides of the tooth. They can close gaps in between the teeth, as well as cover misshapen teeth. If you have a mild case of crooked teeth, they can mask this and straighten your smile. They can cover and give you a full tooth for cosmetic chips and breaks.
Veneers are a durable and stain-resistant material. You can eat a normal diet and not worry too much about the impact on your dental restoration. We consider them a permanent restoration as well. As long as you care for your porcelain veneers, they can last 10-20 years or more.
We can color-match porcelain veneers to whatever shade you desire. If discolored teeth are resistant to traditional whitening techniques, veneers are ideal. Certain stains may not respond to professional teeth whitening. Since they cover the full tooth, you can have the white smile of your dreams.
