Our general dentistry services keep your teeth and gums healthy, and your smile shining. With cosmetic dentistry, we take that a step further.
You may have a bright smile and clean teeth, but when you see yourself in the mirror, do you like how your teeth look? The color of your teeth, are any crooked, too long, or too short? Do you have spaces between your teeth or any missing teeth?
At Dentistry at The Biltmore, our cosmetic dentistry services can correct these issues and enhance the appearance of your teeth. We can give you a new look that will boost your self-esteem, and make you like, even love, what you see in the mirror!
Creating the perfect smile requires technical know-how, artistic skill, and experience to create a truly one-of-a-kind smile that is absolutely unique to you. Dr. Leila has the expertise to improve the elements of your smile that you do not like.
If you want a smile makeover or to make a cosmetic correction, veneers are an excellent choice. Veneers are thin, custom-made, tooth-colored coverings that are permanently bonded to the front surface of your teeth.
Made out of advanced dental ceramics, porcelain, veneers look and function like natural tooth enamel while protecting the surface of a damaged tooth. We can restore stained, chipped, worn down, misaligned uneven or abnormally spaced teeth with veneers.
With little to no removal of existing tooth structure, veneers can eliminate the need for more extensive restorative treatment. We can enhance your smile in a minimally invasive way. You will also have a more durable tooth, and an improved smile.
Due to durability, biocompatibility, and aesthetics, veneers are considered one of the most practical treatment options for unsightly anterior teeth. The conservative aesthetic approach of porcelain veneers is favored by many for their superior cosmetic results.
Composite veneers serve the same function as porcelain veneers. They cover the front of your teeth protecting them and restore teeth to a more natural look. Deciding which type of veneer will be up to you along with the advice of Dr. Leila.
Composite veneers, rather than being milled from a solid piece of ceramic, are made by applying a special resin directly to the teeth that are cured and polished. Since the restoration is made by hand rather than by computer-aided design, we can produce a very customized smile.
Composite vs. Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are more durable than composite veneers and should last 10-15 years. Composite veneers can last 4-8 years. However, if damage happens to a porcelain veneer, it cannot be repaired, it has to be replaced. If you chip a composite veneer, we can repair it.
Porcelain has translucent properties that catch the light very similar to a natural tooth. Composite veneers do a great job, but porcelain is superior when it comes to Aesthetics. Porcelain is stain-resistant while composite resin will stain like natural teeth.

At Dentistry at the Biltmore, we offer Invisalign, an invisible way of straightening your teeth. Invisalign uses a series of tight-fitting custom-made clear plastic overlays called “aligners” that slip over the teeth. An alternative to braces in many cases, which are highly visible due to the appearance of wires, bands, and brackets.
