Porcelain veneers can be a great smile enhancement option for women and men seeking to correct a variety of perceived tooth imperfections. Composed of a thin ceramic material, this cosmetic dentistry solution is bonded to the outside of the affected tooth or teeth, effectively hiding stains, minor misalignments, chips, gaps, and various other issues you may have with the appearance of your smile. At Scottsdale Smile Center, our highly trained and skilled cosmetic dentists can custom-design porcelain veneers to match the exact color and shape of your surrounding teeth, ultimately helping you achieve a beautiful smile with natural-appearing, long-lasting results.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Due to their versatility and high rate of patient satisfaction, porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures performed here at Scottsdale Smile Center. Dental veneers can be used to conceal many common tooth imperfections, such as:
- Cracks or chips
- Stains and discoloration
- Uneven or worn teeth
- Broken and/or damaged teeth
- Gaps between teeth
Depending upon your unique circumstance, porcelain veneers can even be used to address mild tooth misalignment. Many of our patients who choose porcelain veneers experience a boost in self-esteem and feel proud of their new smile.
Porcelain Veneers Procedure
The porcelain veneers procedure can typically be completed in two office visits. During your first visit, the teeth are prepped by removing a small portion of enamel to allow for the thickness of the veneers and to ensure a strong seal. An impression is then taken and prepared to send to the lab where the custom-designed dental veneers will be created from a durable porcelain material.
Your completed veneers are typically returned to our office within one to two weeks. During your second appointment, your dentist will bond your new veneers into place, and as a final step, he will polish them for a natural, vibrant look. With regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental care visits, your veneer(s) can provide beautiful results for decades to come.
