Do you have tooth stains, dental injuries, or single crooked teeth? Veneers can cover tooth imperfections and create a brighter, straighter smile. Dental veneers are shells of porcelain that match the shape and shade of natural teeth. We bond these veneers to the front of the tooth enamel. As a cosmetic dental treatment, porcelain veneers help patients in Sahuarita, AZ, achieve their aesthetic smile goals.
What Can Porcelain Veneers Treat?
Dental veneers can address many cosmetic issues, including:
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Tooth discoloration
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Worn or uneven teeth
- Tooth gaps
- Short teeth
Dental veneers create a natural-end result using stain-resistant material. With the right care, veneers can last for many years to improve your confidence in your smile.
Porcelain Veneers in Sahuarita, AZ
Before treatment, we ensure that you are in good oral health and that your teeth are structurally healthy. Then, we will take digital scans, ensuring that the veneer shapes match your ideal smile. Additionally, we color-match teeth to ensure that the veneers brighten your existing teeth or blend in with the shade of other teeth, depending on how many veneers you require.
We will prepare teeth for veneers by lightly etching the surface of the teeth. Preparing the teeth in this way creates a good bonding surface for the veneers. We will take additional impressions to send to a dental laboratory that crafts the final veneers. After 2 weeks, we ensure the veneers are the correct shape and size before bonding them to each tooth. We will also buff and polish the veneers for a natural look.
Dental Veneer Q&A
Do you have a question about porcelain veneers? Read answers to common questions to learn more about this cosmetic treatment:
What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant and look like natural teeth. Veneers are also more durable than other options, like dental bonding for patients who want to cover larger areas of their smile. With the right care, veneers can last for many years.
Who is a good candidate for dental veneers?
Patients must have enough tooth enamel for veneer treatment because this treatment requires tooth preparation. Additionally, patients must be committed to covering their teeth for many years. Dental veneers can benefit patients who have crooked, damaged, or discolored teeth in their smile line.
How long do veneers last?
Because we prepare teeth for treatment, patients must be committed to veneers lasting over 15 years. Only a professional can replace porcelain veneers; patients must be certain that they want veneers over other options like Invisalign, teeth whitening treatment, or dental bonding.
How many veneers do I need?
Patients can receive veneers to cover all of the teeth that show when they smile. Typically, patients receive up to 8 veneers in their smile line. We will examine your smile to determine how many veneers you require.
