Not everyone was born with a picture-perfect smile. Until recently, though, if you wanted to make certain cosmetic changes to your smile, dental crowns were usually considered to be your best choice. But advances in dental technology have brought us lots of great changes, and we now we also have the option of using versatile porcelain veneers to deliver beautiful esthetic results.
If you look in the mirror and see smile imperfections, we’d like to help you explore your best options at Scottsdale Dentist AZ. The dental porcelain used for veneers is a perfect material because it provides the same translucent qualities as natural dental enamel. Veneers don’t require extensive preparation, and in just a few visits you’ll be enjoying a stunning new smile.
Veneers Bring Out Your Best Smile
Our team is always thrilled to see how our porcelain veneers patients react to their newly transformed smile. Our doctors have extensive experience and expertise in placing natural-looking porcelain veneers, and we know you’ll be thrilled with the results every time you pass a mirror!
Treatment with porcelain veneers does require an investment of time and money on your part, and you should be delighted with the outcome. However, before we decide if veneers are right for you, we’ll talk to you about your expectations to make sure that the outcome lines up with your goals.
A Versatile and Durable Solution
Porcelain veneers offer an esthetic solution for patients of many ages. Veneers can be used to correct a variety of common cosmetic problems, such as:
- Small imperfections like chipped or cracked dental enamel
- Discolored, stained, or dull teeth
- Uneven spaces and gaps between teeth
- Poorly proportioned teeth
- Minor misalignment of teeth
How Porcelain Veneers Work
Once we’ve discussed your options and decided that porcelain veneers are right for you, we’ll start by painlessly removing a very small amount of surface tooth enamel. The amount removed is about the same thickness as the veneer, leaving just enough space for the veneer to fit precisely and look natural.
Next, we’ll take an impression that’s used to make an accurate mold of your teeth. The mold is then sent to a highly skilled dental technician who custom crafts your veneers. In about four weeks, your finished veneers will be ready and you’ll return to our office. We will fit and then bond the veneers securely to the surface of your teeth. Temporary veneers are crafted in order to give you a natural and comfortable appearance while your real veneers are made.
