ABOUT PORCELAIN VENEERS
A porcelain veneer is a custom-made cover for your tooth that is created to enhance your smile. To create them, we will make a mold of your tooth and structure the design of your smile based on your personal fit, preferences and face shape.
Porcelain veneers are used most often in instances when:
- A tooth is cracked or chipped
- A tooth is crooked or has an irregular shape
- There are spaces between your teeth
- Discoloration or stains cannot be removed
- Your teeth are too sensitive for whitening processes
REASONS YOU SHOULD GET PORCELAIN VENEERS
There are a number of compelling reasons why you should get the best veneers in Scottsdale. Here are some of them.
You’ll have whiter, natural-looking teeth
While teeth-whitening procedures may give you the whiter teeth you’ve been longing for, keep in mind that these treatments don’t last that long. Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, can give you more permanent whiter teeth as long as you properly care for them. They also resist stains and blend perfectly with your natural, existing teeth. Depending on how many veneers are done you may never have to whiten again!
You can fix misshapen or crooked teeth
For the longest time, the only go-to treatments for those with crooked or misshapen teeth are orthodontic ones. Today, you can opt for porcelain veneers. Since they are bonded to the surfaces of your teeth, porcelain veneers can effectively fix your teeth that are crooked and misshapen, dramatically improving the way your teeth look and giving you a prettier smile.
Veneers are quick and easy
Other treatments designed to improve your smile take years to generate your desired results. With porcelain veneers, a process of 2-3 visits to the dentist can get you the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted, and a permanent one at that.
Keep chips, cracks, or breaks from view
If you’re embarrassed by the chips, cracks, or breaks in your teeth, porcelain veneers can do a great job of hiding them. Also, porcelain veneers can help prevent any further damage to your teeth. They can even fix chewing, or speech issues brought about by broken teeth.
Close gaps between your teeth
Whether they’re because of genetics or because of a missing tooth or two, gaps between your teeth presents some problems. Aside from being unsightly, gaps between your teeth increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. For some, there may even be some speech issues involved. Porcelain veneers can cover any gap effectively. As long as they are specifically designed and shaped to your natural teeth, porcelain veneers can make those gaps effectively disappear from sight, leaving you with a much-improved smile, among other things.
Improve your bite
There are teeth straightening treatments that will help improve your bite, and there are porcelain veneers that can do the same thing, with faster results. Porcelain veneers can help your teeth align properly, which will significantly improve not only the appearance of your teeth but also their form and function.
Porcelain veneers cause no pain or discomfort
One thing about orthodontic treatments is they involve a certain degree of discomfort or even pain. There is nothing of the sort when you get porcelain veneers. Placing the veneers is a simple procedure that our dentists can perform quickly and painlessly. We even offer a light sedative medication that can make the patient even more at ease.
Porcelain veneers last long
The best veneers Scottsdale has to offer can last about 20 years with proper preventative maintenance. While they can be susceptible to damage, just like natural teeth, proper care should help you make it last so much longer.
PORCELAIN VENEER PLACEMENT PROCEDURE
Depending on the extent of treatment there are generally 3 appointments involved. At the first visit, you and your provider will work together to measure and design the exact smile you desire. Molds are made of your teeth as they currently are. These molds are sent to our in-house dental lab to create a diagnostic wax-up. This wax-up lets us preview your smile. At the second visit, the teeth are prepared for the veneers. Many patients prefer to take a light sedative medication to help with their comfort during this procedure. After the teeth are prepared we use the diagnostic wax-up to create beautiful temporaries that are modeled after your final veneers. These can act as a living preview. You are able to eat and smile as usual while you are wearing them. You can also make sure they are exactly what you expect from the final veneers and if not make adjustments with your doctor and specialized ceramist. At the final appointment, your temporaries will be removed and the final veneers will be tried in. This is where we evaluate the fit and esthetics of the smile makeover. We are very critical here prior to bonding them into place. We like to look at them in the office and even go outside and view them under natural light. If changes need to be made our in-house lab can make them right away while we wait. The veneers are then completed by bonding them into place. You will leave with a gorgeous revitalized smile.
Your custom-made porcelain veneers will be bonded permanently to the outside of your tooth and can be cared for just as easily as it is to care for your natural teeth. They can be brushed and flossed regularly, just like the rest of your teeth! It is possible that Scottsdale veneers made from porcelain will be a great solution for you. Contact us to schedule an in-house visit and let us work together so you can have the best porcelain veneers in Scottsdale.
