It is essential that the foundation of your smile is in good health before you begin cosmetic treatment. Your smile should be free of gum disease and decay. However, Dr. Porter provides comprehensive dental care at his practice so he can efficiently address any concerns.
While certain cosmetic procedures can treat oral health conditions such as cracks and dental misalignment, they may not always be sufficient. For instance, while Invisalign can straighten most patients' smiles, traditional orthodontics may be necessary for severe malocclusion. Likewise, porcelain veneers may not be recommended for a tooth that is significantly weakened by damage. Instead, a porcelain dental crown or even a dental implant may be the best option. During your dentistry consultation, Dr. Porter will perform an in-depth evaluation of your oral health and recommend the best treatment for your needs and goals.
