Dr. Christian Yaste at Ballantyne Dentistry. They do everything, from basics to cosmetic work. I did a smile makeover there and they were great. Love the staff, love the office. It's right behind the Harris Teeter in Ballantyne, next to McAllisters.

Default Porcelain Veneers

singandpray,

I would encourage you to call our office, Ballantyne Center for Dentistry. Veneers are very strong and last for years. I myself have six veneers and we find less than 1% of our veneers ever break or have problems. Cracking or breaking veneers are most often due to clenching, grinding, or lack of care. It is hard to crack them because they literally fuse chemically and mechanically to the teeth. We have hundreds of clients we have placed veneers on that have had absolutely zero problems with cracking or breaking.

If a patient of our does have an issue with bonding or veneers we fix it. We also have a warranty on all of the restorative procedures we do.

I hope you are still online cause I have a question.

If a veneer or porcelain crown chips on the edge, can that be repaired (without removing it?). I have a chip on a crown (bicuspid) and my dentist has moved his practice. I need to find someone who can fix it (if it can be fixed without removal).

Also - does your practice do any orthodontic work?

Thank you!

Yes, I am still here! As to your question, the answer is this....It depends. Fixing porcelain restorations can be tricky and often is unpredictable. It is easier to actually bond to metal or tooth structure than it is to porcelain. However, sometimes we can bond resin or composite to porcelain and get a decent result. I would be happy to take a look at it for you if would like. Just PM me and I will give you the details.

We do some orthodontic work. You have probably heard of invisilign. We use a system similar to that for straightening mildly crooked teeth or correcting spaces between teeth. If your orthodontic needs go beyond that, we work with a team of orthodontists around Charlotte that are awesome.

Dr. Yaste: Thank you so much for your reply. I felt it would be a challenge to handle a chip, but I would like to explore any possibilities for repair.

Really appreciate your response. I hated to make an appointment if there is certainty that nothing could be done. If there is even the chance something could be done, then it is worth everyone's time to check it out.

Nice to know you do invisilign, too, as we have had folks ask about this in the past.
