Veneers provide a relatively simple way to achieve a beautiful, new smile. Veneers are placed over problem teeth to conceal a variety of cosmetic concerns, including chips, cracks, stains, and discolorations. The shape, size, and color are customized to match your teeth for a perfect look and fit. Once in place, the veneers will look just like your natural teeth. At Waterfront Dentistry in Scottsdale, AZ or Refresh Dentistry in Phoenix, AZ, Dr. Shawn Monahan and Dr. Scott Sutton are your dentists for veneers.
What are Veneers?
A veneer is an extremely thin cover applied to the front of a tooth with cosmetic imperfections, such as a crack or discoloration. The veneer gives the tooth a brand new flawless appearance. The natural tooth remains in place and the veneer is simply affixed to the front of it. A small amount of enamel is shaved from the surface of the tooth to give the veneer a place to rest flush against the tooth. The veneer is then permanently cemented to the tooth so it will not come loose and slip out of place.
Veneers are often made from porcelain, which closely matches the appearance of tooth enamel for the most natural look possible. The size, shape, and color of veneers are customized to each patient so the veneers fit perfectly and blend in with the surrounding teeth. Veneers can be used to correct the appearance of sheep that are oddly shaped. They can also be used to close small gaps between teeth, as well as conceal such imperfections as cracks, chips, stains, or discolorations on teeth.
