To learn more about veneers in North Phoenix, give us a call today!
Am I a Good Candidate for Veneers?
Generally, if you are displeased with some aspect of the smile you see in the mirror, you might be a good candidate for veneers. Some of the imperfections that veneers can correct include:
- Stubborn stains
- Chips and cracks
- Minor gaps
- Slightly crooked or rotated teeth
- Stubby, worn-down, or misshapen teeth
Because veneers are often a purely cosmetic treatment, your front teeth must be free of infection and structural problems before we can place them. This means if you have any cavities, deep fractures, or gum disease, we must address those issues prior to undergoing the veneers procedure.
How Does the Procedure Work?
Not counting your initial consultation with your cosmetic dentist in North Phoenix, veneers generally take two appointments to place. During the first of these visits, one of our dentists will prepare your affected teeth by shaving off a super-thin layer of enamel. Don’t worry; this sliver is only about as thick as a contact lens. Once your teeth have been sufficiently prepped, we’ll take impressions of them and send them off to a trusted dental lab. A skilled ceramist will get to work on crafting your veneers to our exact specifications.
In the meantime, we’ll protect your teeth by placing temporary veneers. They also allow you to essentially take your new and improved smile for a test drive. After a few weeks, when your permanent veneers are ready, we’ll take off your temporaries and permanently bond your new veneers into place. You can then show off your brand-new smile to the world for years to come!
What Are the Benefits of Veneers?
Some of the advantages of veneers include:
- Compared to dental crowns, veneers are a more conservative treatment since they require significantly less enamel removal.
- Gum tissue is able to tolerate dental porcelain quite well.
- Each veneer is customized to blend in with the rest of your smile.
- Veneers can correct multiple smile imperfections in just one treatment.
- Because porcelain isn’t as porous as enamel, your veneers will be more resistant to staining than your natural teeth.
- If you take proper care of your veneers with regular brushing, flossing, and checkups, they can last upwards of 15 years.
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
There is no set cost of getting veneers since every case is different. The total amount you’ll end up paying could vary based on a few factors, such as how many veneers you’re receiving and on which teeth they’ll be placed. Rest assured that no matter how much your final cost amounts to, veneers in North Phoenix are definitely worth the price. After all, they can completely transform your smile for the better!
