Am I a Good Candidate for Porcelain 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 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 Porcelain 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 Porcelain 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 Phoenix are definitely worth the price. After all, they can completely transform your smile for the better!
Porcelain Veneers Frequently Asked Questions
Are you still curious about porcelain veneers in Phoenix? If so, you’re in the right place! While our front desk staff is always ready to help in any way possible, we also want to make the information you need easy to access. That’s why we’ve included the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about porcelain veneers in Phoenix. Read on to satisfy your curiosity and learn more about veneers.
How long do porcelain veneers Last?
One of the benefits of porcelain veneers is that they can last for up to 15 years with proper care. To get the most out of your veneers, be sure to visit our dental office for routine checkups and cleanings. You should also maintain brushing and flossing—brush twice a day and floss once a day to keep your smile free of plaque and bacteria. Additionally, if you play sports, or grind your teeth, wear a mouthguard/nightguard to protect your new smile.
Are porcelain veneers worth the investment?
Porcelain veneers tend to come with a higher price tag compared to other cosmetic dentistry options, so what makes them worth their cost? For starters, the treatment is completely personalized, allowing you to choose the size, shape, and shade of your new smile, providing you with the appearance of your dreams. Additionally, dental porcelain is relatively stain-proof, making it more difficult to discolor your teeth. However, you simply can’t put a price on the boost in confidence that veneers will provide you—smile in front of friends and family once more!
Are porcelain veneers reversible?
Because porcelain veneers require the preparation of your teeth before placement, they are not reversible. Enamel doesn’t grow back, so once our dentists remove a slight portion to accommodate your veneers, you must stay with the solution you chose. Thankfully, veneers are incredibly durable, beautiful, and easy to speak with, so patients are always satisfied with their treatment.
Does the porcelain veneers process hurt?
You may hear that we must remove part of your tooth enamel and assume that it’s a painful process. However, we ensure that you’re numb and comfortable before beginning. We will usually only require 2 appointments for preparation and placement, where we will keep you happy and relaxed. There may be some slight sensitivity during the first few days after treatment, but this will quickly go away!
Can I get a single tooth veneered?
One of the best parts of the porcelain veneers treatment is that we can use them for one tooth or an entire smile—it all depends on your needs. For a single tooth, we match the color, size, and shape of your veneer with the rest of your smile. That way, the veneer we place seamlessly blends in with the rest of your teeth for a cohesive grin. This option is popular for patients with just one slightly crooked, gapped, or misshapen tooth.
