Get a Beautiful New Smile in Just Two Visits
Veneers are durable, tooth-colored shells made of porcelain that are placed over the front surfaces of your teeth to eliminate cosmetic issues. Veneers can erase your concerns regarding the shape, size, color, condition, or length of your teeth.
Without moving your teeth you can have a flawless, bright smile before you know it.
How Do Veneers Work?
The process of getting veneers is typically completed in two appointments. After consulting with Dr. Hatch to see if you’re an ideal candidate for dental veneers, you’ll return to our office so we can take an impression of your teeth.
You may be a good candidate for dental veneers if you have:
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Small gaps between your teeth
- Have slightly crooked or misaligned teeth
- Teeth that are resistant to whitening agents
- Uneven teeth
- Small or poorly shaped teeth
During your consultation, Dr. Hatch can do a chairside mock-up — placing temporary composites that last just a few days on your teeth so you can get a clear idea of what your new smile will look like.
At your next appointment, Dr. Hatch will prepare your teeth for the veneer application. This consists of removing a small amount of enamel to ensure smooth application and a natural-looking fit. Your custom veneers will be crafted in a laboratory, a process that can take 2-3 weeks.
To protect your teeth in the meantime, you’ll be given temporary veneers. At your next appointment, your temporary veneers will be replaced with your brand new custom restoration. Then, you can enjoy your perfect new smile.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the veneers procedure painful?
No, the procedure isn’t painful. If you’re anxious or have sensitive teeth, Dr. Hatch can administer sedation so you’ll feel comfortable during the procedure.
How long do veneers last?
If well cared for, porcelain veneers can last 10 to 15 years, or even longer. Daily brushing and flossing together with regular checkups at Arizona Dental Heights will help extend the life of your veneers.
Does dental insurance cover veneers?
Usually, insurance will not cover veneers because it’s considered a cosmetic procedure. But we feature a number of options to make your care as affordable as possible.
What if my veneer falls off or is damaged?
Call our office if you experience any issues with your veneers. Our dentist can fix or replace your veneer even if we didn’t originally provide it.
Do veneers work for crooked teeth?
If your teeth are slightly crooked or misaligned, veneers can help improve their appearance. If your teeth are too crooked for veneers, we’ll recommend orthodontic treatment.
