Misaligned or crooked teeth can impact an otherwise beautiful smile. Drs. Rogel Carlos and Marissa Mandap of AZ Dental Wellness of Scottsdale understand that these imperfections can cause patients to feel self-conscious about the appearance of their smiles. With these teeth, our team may offer a solution known as cosmetic porcelain veneers for enhancement.
How do porcelain veneers work?
Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic restorations that are used to cover imperfections on the teeth near the front of the smile, or the “anterior teeth.” These veneers are a facing that can disguise problems such as:
- Misaligned or crooked teeth
- Permanently stained teeth
- Broken/chipped teeth
- Spaced/gapped teeth
- Unusually shaped teeth/short teeth
What to expect in the process of obtaining porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneers start with a consultation appointment with the team at AZ Dental Wellness of Scottsdale. We encourage patients to speak to us about the concerns they have regarding their smile, including cosmetic and functional problems. Then, we evaluate the patient to decide if they are a good candidate.
Once patients choose to have porcelain veneers fabricated and placed, preparations begin. Preparing the tooth for the porcelain veneer requires the dentist to file down the front enamel of the tooth and roughen the surface for proper adhesion. Then, impressions are taken and sent to a laboratory where the final restoration is fabricated to match the color, shape, and size of the patient’s existing, surrounding teeth. This ensures the new restoration blends in beautifully and doesn’t stand out as dental work having been done. When the porcelain veneer is complete, patients return to the practice for our team to bond the final restoration in place and finish the process.
