Not everyone was born with a Hollywood smile. In fact, many of your favorite celebrities in Hollywood were not born with one either! How did they achieve their now-perfect smile? In many cases, they can thank their cosmetic dentist, as well as porcelain veneers.
Veneers can be ideal for improving your smile if you have teeth that are poorly spaced, stained, or otherwise keeping you from having that celebrity-caliber smile.
Let’s take a look at what is involved with the application of porcelain veneers at our Phoenix dental office.
The Consultation for Porcelain Veneers in Phoenix
Before you decide whether porcelain veneers are right for you, you’ll want to schedule a consultation at Dental Care at Moon Valley. Our cosmetic dentist will evaluate your oral health and address any current issues you might have.
Before deciding whether porcelain veneers are your best option, you and your cosmetic dentist in Phoenix will talk about your goals for your smile. The most appropriate smile will be designed just for you, based on your preferences for the shape, length, width, and color of your teeth. These will be the teeth—and the smile—you should have been born with!
The Dental Veneers Procedure
Porcelain veneers are bonded to the teeth and there is some preparation made to the teeth prior to the procedure. This means that once your teeth are prepared, veneers are irreversible. Think of veneers as a long-term investment in your appearance, the first impression you make, and your confidence!
Once you get started, the process for porcelain veneers usually takes place over a period of about six weeks. You can expect to visit your dentist at least twice during that time period.
After you and your cosmetic dentist decide on the best color, shape, and size for your veneers, some reshaping of your natural tooth structure will be required to prepare the surface for the veneers.
Next, an impression is made of your teeth; this is what will be used to make the veneers. When the veneers are ready, your dentist will apply them to your teeth and bond them into place.
Caring for Your New Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are as easy to take care of as your natural teeth, so stick to your normal brushing and flossing routine. Be consistent with visiting your general dentist twice each year, and you can look forward to your beautiful new smile lasting for years to come.
