Porcelain veneers instantly enhance imperfect teeth
When you’ve got chipped, cracked, stained or otherwise damaged front teeth, dental veneers are the option that allow you to completely cover the imperfections with a smooth, beautiful porcelain covering.
Just about the width of a contact lens, porcelain veneers are tooth-shaped caps that are securely bonded onto the front surface of your damaged tooth. They’re typically placed in two visits to Arrowhead Foothills Dentistry — the first visit is the preparation of your teeth for the veneers, and the second is the final placement.
The first visit
When you come in for your initial veneer appointment with Dr. Steele or Dr. Halliday, they’ll examine your mouth and thoroughly discuss your smile goals with you. It can help to bring in photos of smiles you do and don’t like for this visit, as we know not everyone wants a Regis Philbin smile. Once your doctor has a complete understanding of what it is you want with your dental veneers, he can build your unique treatment plan and prepare your teeth to receive the veneers. This step involves buffing away just a tiny part of your tooth to make room for the covering — and you’ll leave this visit with temporary veneers.
The second visit
In the time between your first and second visit, your dental veneers are created in a trusted laboratory and shipped back to Arrowhead Foothills Dentistry. Then, Dr. Steele or Dr. Halliday does a thorough check for fit, color, shape and quality — and you get the final say before they’re permanently bonded on. When all’s said and done, you’re walking out of our office the proud new owner of a new, stunning smile!
