Are you looking to improve the appearance of your front teeth? Dental veneers are widely used to improve the appearance of front teeth including staining, large gaps, large fillings, chipped teeth, or overall shape.
Veneers are a thin shell of porcelain that sits over the front and biting-edges of the teeth. The shade can be chosen to any desired color to whiten the appearance of your smile. Dental veneers are usually placed on the front teeth, where the chewing forces are not as hard as the back teeth. The process of placing veneers is relatively easy, requiring two dental appointments typically.
The first appointment is to “prep” the teeth and sends an impression to the lab to fabricate the veneers. You go home with temporary veneers, which also let you test drive your new smile. Veneers are fairly conservative in the preparation as it requires a small amount of space to be created on the face (front), bottom, and sides of each tooth.
The second appointment is to cement the final veneers and go home with a truly transformed smile! If you’re interested in learning more, give Desert Ridge Smiles in Phoenix, AZ, a call today! (480) 860-4300.
