Veneers are a great option for patients who have damaged teeth, but the majority of the tooth is in good condition. If you are thinking about a smile makeover, contact the friendly and helpful staff at Aesthetic Family Dentistry today. We can make you love your smile again.
What are Veneers?
We’ve had the pleasure of treating hundreds of patients with porcelain veneers. Quite simply, veneers are a strong tooth-like covering that are glued to your existing teeth. They instantly improve the look of your smile and add strength to the teeth they cover. We are pleased to provide veneers in North Scottsdale, Cave Creek, AZ, and nearby areas and we love seeing the difference it makes in our patients’ lives.
Veneers are made from porcelain, which is a hard material that can be treated like your regular teeth. Many patients have veneers placed on their teeth in the front of their mouth to hide cracks, chips, enamel breaks, gaps, and even discoloration. Because we can match your new veneers to your existing tooth color, you can walk out of our office and smile with confidence that nobody will be able to tell the difference.
How are Veneers Prepared?
After a consultation with Dr. Roderick in Phoenix, AZ, we’ll take impressions of your teeth so that we can have the lab create veneers that are designed specifically for your teeth. These impressions will allow the lab technicians to build veneers that follow the shape and form of your existing teeth and also ensure a proper hold and form when placed.
After the veneers come back from the lab, you’ll be called back in to have them placed on your teeth. This dprocess takes minutes from start to finish, and you can walk out of our dental office with a new set of teeth and ready to greet the world with your smile. We use a dental cement to adhere the veneer to your existing tooth surface after gently sanding the surface of the tooth being treated.
How Do You Care for Veneers?
A common worry of patients is that they will have to take special care of their veneers, but the truth is that they require no more work or care than your regular teeth. Of course, regular brushing and flossing helps to ensure that issues don’t arise and regular check-ups at our Phoenix, AZ dental office also helps to ensure that your veneers are performing as expected.
You don’t need a special toothpaste or toothbrush to clean your veneers – whatever your regular routine is at home will work just fine. If you’ve opted to have your teeth whitened at the same time as your veneers are placed, you’ll need to return to our office on a set schedule to maintain the whitening effect. Because we can match your veneer to the color of your existing teeth, Dr. Roderick will talk to you about whitening during your consultation.
What are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers fall under the umbrella of cosmetic dentistry. We are proud to offer these services to our patients. Many of the benefits of veneers include instant results. In as little as a few days, you can have a new smile you can be proud of once again. They are sturdy and strong and act like your normal teeth, so even you’ll forget that you have veneers over time. They can be color matched so they don’t stand out and with the proper care and attention, can last for many years.
Veneers are adhered to your teeth with dental cement and so they become semi-permanent in your mouth. You shouldn’t expect to have to replace them any time soon, if at all. Veneers are a great option for adults or even older teenagers who have all of their adult teeth and their mouths have stopped growing.
