A Flawless Smile Just for You
Veneers are thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain shells that are custom-made to recreate the natural appearance of your teeth. They are contoured and bonded onto the front of each tooth’s surface, providing your teeth with greater strength and beauty.
Porcelain veneers are the ideal treatment to improve many esthetic dental concerns, and they often can be a less-invasive alternative for dental crowns or braces. The durable, porcelain material can remain beautiful for many years and will offer you more confidence than ever before.
What’s Involved with the Procedure?
Receiving veneers usually requires two easy visits to our Flagstaff office. First, we prepare your teeth by lightly buffing and reshaping the surface to allow the veneers to be bonded properly. Our team will take an impression of your teeth and help you pick out the shade you want.
While your veneers are being made at our dental lab, we’ll provide you with temporary veneers to wear over the next few weeks. During your second visit, your teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. The bonding material is then placed on the surface of your tooth and we’ll use a dental light beam to harden and fix it.
Reasons for Porcelain Veneers
If you’re unsure if porcelain veneers are right for you, Dr. Rodda or Dr. Abramowitz can help ensure you make the best decision for your smile. Veneers are a great treatment for patients who want to:
- Cosmetically enhance their smile
- Straighten their crooked teeth
- Reshape or resize their teeth
- Whiten their discolored or stained teeth
- Close any gaps between their teeth
- Cover up any chips or cracks
Frequently Asked Questions About Veneers
Is the veneers procedure painful?
Here at Oasis Dental Care, we ensure your veneers process is completely pain-free and simple. We’ll typically numb the tooth that we need to reshape so you won’t feel a thing, but we can also offer you sedation dentistry in case you’re nervous about the procedure.
How long do veneers last?
Porcelain veneers will typically last between seven and 15 years before they’ll need to be replaced. With proper oral care and regular visits to our office, your veneers will have the capability of maintaining their appearance for a long time.
How much do porcelain veneers cost?
The cost of porcelain veneers will vary depending on you and your unique smile, but generally, the average cost can range between $800-$2,500 per tooth.
Does dental insurance cover veneers?
Typically, dental insurance doesn’t provide benefits for cosmetic procedures like porcelain veneers, but there may be some cases where they’re used to enhance your oral health.
What if my veneer falls off or is damaged?
If your veneer has fallen off, chipped, or is broken, schedule a visit to our office so Dr. Rodda or Dr. Abramowitz can repair it properly.
How do I take care of my veneers?
As always, you should be maintaining a good dental hygiene routine every day. This means brush, floss, and rinse with mouthwash twice a day and visit us for your check-ups twice a year.
Also, be cautious of foods and drinks that can stain your veneers. Just like your natural teeth, your porcelain veneers can become discolored.
