About Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can repair a gorgeous smile by masking certain cosmetic flaws, such as chips, cracks, stains, minor gaps, and other issues. Slim, specially made covers that are bonded over the visible surface of the patient’s teeth, veneers establish a natural-looking, beautiful smile. Porcelain veneers are substantial, but still slim enough to be inconspicuous, which helps the veneers to blend with the normal appearance of the teeth. Getting veneers made by our dentists at Ashbrook Dental Care and Orthodontics in Mesa, AZ is a quick, simple solution to cover up different aesthetic blemishes and deliver a rejuvenated, dazzling smile.
What to Expect
To start out the process of manufacturing the custom veneers our dentists will need to create room for the veneer by taking off a wafer-thin layer of dental enamel from each tooth that will be masked to the veneer. After the teeth have been prepped, our dentists can make a digital impression of the teeth that will be used to manufacture the personalized veneers in a dental laboratory. A transitional veneer may be used to conceal the teeth until the custom veneers are returned to Ashbrook Dental Care and Orthodontics in Mesa, AZ. The personalized veneers will be affixed to the front surface of the teeth with a professional bonding agent. Our dentists can modify the veneers as needed to provide the patient a secure and comfortable fit.
Another appointment is usually planned for around seven days after the veneers are bonded to make sure the glue is strong and the feel is still comfortable. Porcelain veneers are more resilient against staining than the natural enamel, but to maintain the veneers in their ideal condition, our dentists recommend giving up staining drinks and foods, including tea, soda, coffee, and red wine. Patients are encouraged to start or continue to stick with a good home oral care routine, including brushing the teeth daily with a non-abrasive toothpaste, frequent flossing, and scheduling appointments with our dentists for cleanings and exams at Ashbrook Dental Care and Orthodontics. With proper care, veneers can be kept on for up to twenty years.
Porcelain veneers are classified a cosmetic treatment, which means it is generally not paid dental insurance. Although, Ashbrook Dental Care and Orthodontics in Mesa, AZ accepts several payment choices, plus our dentists and the staff at Ashbrook Dental Care and Orthodontics can assist patients with financing options to make veneers reasonably priced.
