Veneers In Glendale, AZ

Dental veneers are an aesthetic process of covering your existing teeth with a thin, porcelain shell. Veneers may be right for you if your teeth are discolored, cracked or worn down. Many people choose to get 6-8 veneers to create an even and symmetrical smile. Veneers are usually made from porcelain or resin-composite and are permanently bonded to your existing teeth.

The process of applying veneers can take up to three visits to the dentist. During the first visit you will complete a consultation with the dentist. The second visit will be to create the mold for the veneers. Once the molds are ready the third visit is to apply the veneers to the teeth.

When you arrive at the dentist to have your veneers placed on your teeth, your dentist will evaluate how the veneers fit, the shape of the venner and will make sure the color matches the rest of your teeth. Your teeth will then be thoroughly cleaned to help keep any bacteria from being trapped underneath the veneer and possibly causing tooth decay. Dental cement is used to bond the veneer to the tooth. Ultraviolet light is used to harden the cement.

After the procedure you may notice the veneers can feel a little rough or grainy. This is normal. The rough spots are typically from a tiny amount of extra cement and will wear down on their own after just a few days. Once any local anesthesia wears off you should be able to eat and drink normally.

Veneers can last up to 15 years as long as they are taken care of properly. In order to get the longest time our of your veneers avoid the following:

Don’t chew on hard objects like ice, or your fingernails
Don’t open packages with you teeth
Chew with your back teeth
Use a splint or retain if you grind your teeth at night
Wear a mouthguard when playing sports
