Porcelain veneers can correct many different aesthetic flaws, making them a great choice if you want to achieve a true smile transformation. The thin shells will cover the front of your teeth, reshaping them and concealing blemishes on the surface. Before placing veneers, we will conduct a complete consultation to make sure that you are a candidate for treatment. At Value Dental Centers in Goodyear, AZ, our dentists take great care when designing and placing veneers. In this way, they can provide highly lifelike restorations that will blend beautifully and naturally with your teeth. After your treatment, you may look years younger, and you will feel more confident about your dazzling new smile.
Are Porcelain Veneers Right for You?
Porcelain veneers are suitable for a wide range of patients because they can address a diverse range of cosmetic issues. If you are struggling with any of the following problems, veneers may be right for you:
- Dental stains, especially internal discoloration, which will not respond to teeth whitening
- Chipped teeth
- Small, hairline cracks that have not weakened your teeth
- Unusually shaped teeth
- Proportionately small teeth
- Minor misalignment or isolated crooked teeth
During your consultation, your dentist will consider your general dental health. To receive veneers, you must have strong teeth with sufficient dental enamel. If you have suffered decay or enamel erosion, your dentist may suggest dental bonding, rather than veneers.
Porcelain Veneers Prep and Placement
To make room for veneers, your dentist will reshape your teeth and trim off some dental enamel. Then he or she will take impressions. With these molds, our lab can ensure that your veneers are a near-perfect fit for your teeth. Since it will usually take several weeks to craft your veneers, we will provide temporary restorations during this time. Although they will not look as realistic as your final veneers, they will improve the look of your smile and prevent tooth sensitivity.
Your second appointment will take place after your veneers come back to our office. At that time, your dentist will make sure that they fit correctly. Then he or she will use a chemical solution to “microetch” your teeth. This process will produce tiny, invisible grooves in your dental enamel, increasing the surface area and creating a stronger bond. Your dentist will then apply a bonding agent to your teeth and attach your veneers with tooth-colored composite resin.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Immediately after veneers placement, you will enjoy the many benefits of this treatment. Veneers can thoroughly enhance your appearance, often helping you to look years younger. Plus, by addressing various issues at once, veneers can save you the time and hassle needed for multiple cosmetic treatments.
Your rejuvenated smile can also have a huge impact on your self-esteem. Like many patients, you may feel more confident that you have felt in years. You will be eager to share your smile with others, and, as a result, you may find yourself engaging in different social situations. You could even enjoy new opportunities at work, since you will feel more assured speaking in front of others and taking on new leadership roles. Most importantly, you will be ready to share your beautiful smile with family and loved ones.
