Natural Looking Porcelain Veneers to Achieve a Flawless Smile
We believe smiling has the ability to help change someone’s life and even make the world a better place. Smiling has been known to improve mood, relieve stress, boost the immune system, and make a person seem more approachable. When you’re happy with your smile, you not only feel more attractive, but the smile itself is contagious and will positively influence the people around you.
If you are interested in achieving a flawless smile, our dentists at Every Smile may suggest dental veneers. Permanently bonded to the anterior surface of teeth, veneers are extremely thin, tooth-shaped shells that improve the overall appearance of front teeth. Made from high quality, long-lasting porcelain, dental veneers from our Chandler, AZ, practice will complement the natural look of your smile, while achieving a number of potential improvements.
To learn how you can benefit from porcelain veneers, call our Chandler, AZ, dental office today at (480) 732-7874 and schedule a consultation with one of the doctors.
Why Porcelain Veneers?
A dental veneer can repair and restore a single tooth, or multiple veneers can enhance the overall beauty of your smile. They are most often recommended to correct cosmetic dental imperfections on front teeth, including:
- Spaces and gaps in between teeth
- Misshapen and uneven teeth
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Spotted, stained, or darkened teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Extremely worn teeth
However, in order to qualify for dental veneers, your oral health must be in good condition. If there is any sign of tooth decay, weakened enamel, or periodontitis, you may not be a candidate for this procedure, until the underlying issues are addressed.
What to Expect
When you come in for the initial consultation, one of our doctors will first take the time to listen to your cosmetic concerns and desires. Then, he will customize a treatment plan to meet your needs and help you achieve a smile that will make you feel happy, healthy, and beautiful.
If you decide to go with porcelain veneers, the dentist will choose a shade of porcelain that closely matches your natural tooth color. (Some people prefer to undergo professional teeth whitening before the shade-matching step.) Next, he will numb your mouth with local anesthesia. If you struggle with dental anxiety, we can provide sedation to help calm your nerves before beginning the procedure.
Once you are comfortable, and before taking a dental impression, the dentist will slightly reduce the depth of dental enamel from the teeth requiring veneers. This provides the purest mold for the lab tech who will create your veneers, to ensure that they fit properly and comfortably. Over the next week or two, your veneers will be handcrafted by a lab tech who works with dental porcelains.
At your follow-up appointment, after the veneers have arrived, your dentist will make sure you are happy with the fit and design before permanently placing them. If no adjustments are required, the dentist will secure the veneers with dental cement.
In most cases, the process for applying custom dental veneers typically requires just two office visits. During your entire dental journey with us, our team will make certain that each visit is pleasant and enjoyable. If cost is a concern, we provide several financing options and an in-house savings plan to help patients receive the dental care they deserve.
The Beauty of Porcelain Veneers
Choosing porcelain veneers will help you regain your confidence and return the sparkle to your smile, in just a few office visits. If you take good care of your teeth by brushing twice a day and flossing regularly, you can expect veneers to last at least 20 years or longer. To help extend their longevity, we recommend seeing Dr. Lee or Dr. Proctor every six months for a routine checkup and cleaning.
