Dental veneers are cosmetic dentistry restorations that improve the appearance of your teeth when you smile. Made of thin layers of porcelain, each one is bonded to the front of a single tooth. Our Scottsdale porcelain veneers are often placed side-by-side, on six to ten teeth per arch, so that you can change every detail of your smile.
Our Scottsdale and Scottsdale porcelain veneers are often recommended to help your teeth look:
- Straighter, without braces
- Brighter, without teeth whitening
- Fuller and properly shaped, without dental crowns
Rather than spending months or years gradually adjusting your teeth, our Scottsdale porcelain veneers can give you a completely brand new smile in just two appointments.
Who Makes an Ideal Scottsdale Porcelain Veneers Candidate?
Getting Scottsdale porcelain veneers is ideal for people who have a generally healthy smile, but are affected by the aesthetic appearance of their teeth. Because veneers are a cosmetic dentistry treatment, they are an elective procedure. They serve the purpose of improving the way your teeth look, rather than that of other restorative dentistry techniques like crowns or implants.
If you think getting Scottsdale dental veneers is the right option for you, you should be committed to ongoing oral hygiene and preventive care to keep your veneers lasting as long as possible.
What’s Involved in the Scottsdale Porcelain Veneers Process
Most of our Scottsdale and Scottsdale porcelain veneers treatments involve an initial consultation and one to two treatments.
The Consultation and Exam: The very first step in getting dental veneers is a consultation with one of our Scottsdale cosmetic dentistry providers. We’ll review what aspects of your smile that you want to change, what your budget is, and any short or long-term smile goals. After examining your teeth, we’ll let you know if Scottsdale dental veneers are a viable option, or if an alternative treatment is a better choice.
Tooth Preparation: Traditional porcelain veneers require an initial preparation appointment, before impressions can be taken. Your teeth are numbed and slightly reshaped, so that they don’t look bulky when porcelain is bonded over them.
If you’re having no-prep veneers like Lumineers made, this phase of the treatment is omitted. Only an impression is necessary!
We take the impression of your teeth and specify the exact size, shape, and color that you want your new “teeth” to have. This information is sent off too our Scottsdale porcelain veneers lab, where each restoration is made by hand, similar to our dental crowns and bridges.
Because we offer many same day dentistry treatments, you may be able to combine this first treatment appointment with your initial consultation and exam.
Delivery of Your New Veneers:
Approximately two weeks after your impression, you’ll need to return to our office so that the permanent veneers or your Lumineers can be bonded in place. No numbing or reshaping is necessary. As soon as everything is in place, you’ll be able to look into the mirror and see a completely brand new smile.
Lumineers Offer a Non-Invasive Alternative to Scottsdale Porcelain Veneers
When bulkiness isn’t a concern, Lumineers offer a non-invasive and more affordable way to enjoy Scottsdale dental veneers treatment. There’s no preparation involved, and the custom veneers are bonded over your full, natural tooth. If you aren’t sure whether or not these veneers are right for you, just ask! Our highly experienced team of Scottsdale porcelain veneer dentists will let you know which benefits the two types of veneers can offer your unique smile.
Caring for Your Scottsdale Porcelain Veneers is Easy
To get the most out of your veneers, it’s best to care for them as if they were natural teeth. Brush them with a soft toothbrush and gentle toothpaste to avoid any unwanted wear or scratches. Floss around them daily, so that no decay develops around the margins of the veneer where it meets your tooth. It’s also important to schedule a preventive dentistry appointment at least every six months.
If you’re prone to clenching or grinding your teeth, you may also want to invest in a custom athletic splint or night guard, such as an NTI. These splints prevent your teeth from wearing against each other more than they ought to, which could accidentally cause the porcelain to chip.
