What You Should Know About Veneers

Get the facts about dental veneers before you decide if this treatment is right for you.

Are you feeling less than confident about your smile? Are you dealing with a crooked smile, gaps between teeth, or teeth that are slightly uneven? If so, you may be wondering whether dental veneers are right for you. Dr. Katia Mortazavinia of Elite Family Dentistry has helped many patients get that perfect set of pearly whites with the help of veneers in Mesa, AZ. Before getting these restorations, here’s what you should know:

They Address Many Cosmetic Problems

One of the reasons people turn to veneers when they decide to get cosmetic dentistry is because these restorations are great at hiding a multitude of imperfections. Since veneers cover the entire front surface of your teeth they can hide and improve:

  • Stains and discolorations that are resistant to teeth whitening
  • Chips and cracks
  • Misshapen or oddly shaped teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Teeth with a pitted texture
  • Worn teeth

They Are Stain Resistant

Another benefit of veneers is that the medical-grade porcelain that we use is also stain resistant. This means that your veneers should stay vibrant over the years as long as you do your part and maintain good oral hygiene. This includes brushing and flossing every day and visiting our dental team for six-month checkups and cleanings.

They Could Give You a Straighter Smile

If you have a slightly misaligned smile you may not be ready to take the plunge to get braces, especially if the misalignments are very minor. However, veneers might be able to give you a straighter smile without having to resort to braces. If your teeth are slightly out of alignment, veneers may be able to give you the perfectly straight smile you’ve been after.

They Aren’t Removable

Veneers are permanently fixed to your teeth with a strong bonding resin. With the proper care, veneers can last up to 20 years before they need to be replaced. Since some enamel must be removed from the front of your teeth before placing veneers, this cosmetic treatment is permanent.

You Can Get Veneers for Only a Few Teeth

You don’t need to get veneers for your whole smile to be a good candidate for this cosmetic treatment. We have helped many patients reshape, resize, realign and brighten their smiles with veneers in Mesa, AZ. Maybe you have a tooth that is slightly misshapen or you have a gap between your front teeth. We can simply place veneers on the teeth that have these imperfections so that they blend in with the rest of your beautiful smile.
