Porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile and effective of all cosmetic dentistry treatments. Placed over the front of teeth, veneers cover imperfections and minor damage to create a smile that is straight, bright, and strong. If there are issues with your smile that have left you feeling less confident or attractive, Glendale cosmetic dentist Dr. Donald Wilcox welcomes an opportunity to meet with you and discuss your concerns – and to help you determine if porcelain veneers are the best treatment for your specific needs.
If you live in Glendale, Phoenix, Scottsdale, or surrounding areas of Arizona and are unhappy with your smile, please contact Desert Smiles online or by calling 602-978-1790 to schedule your porcelain veneers consultation with Dr. Wilcox.
What Porcelain Veneers can Treat
Porcelain veneers offer an ideal treatment for many cosmetic imperfections. Some of the most common uses include:
- Minor damage such as chipped or cracked teeth
- Cosmetic malocclusion including crooked presentation, gaps and spaces, and uneven tooth sizes
- Severe discoloration such as that caused by tetracycline and fluorosis
Veneers may also be used to cover older composite fillings in certain cases.
Because they can correct cosmetic bite irregularities, porcelain veneers are sometimes called “instant orthodontics.” However, more pronounced issues may require a different approach, such as Invisalign® or traditional braces. During your cosmetic dentistry consultation at our Glendale office, Dr. Wilcox can discuss this with you in greater detail.
Types of Porcelain Veneers
Dr. Wilcox offers traditional veneers in addition to:
Each of these options offers specific benefits and none are perfect for every smile. The best way to learn which type of porcelain veneers will best enhance your smile is through a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Wilcox. During your initial visit, Dr. Wilcox will carefully assess your teeth, discuss the benefits and limitations of each veneer option, and help you choose the right one for your needs.
The process of placing porcelain veneers relies on the type you and Dr. Wilcox choose. Some options, such as Lumineers®, do not require tooth preparation, which can decrease the amount of time you spend at our office. However, even when preparation is required, the placement of veneers is quick and virtually pain-free – and results can last for several years without touchups.
Proper care, including daily brushing and biannual visits to our office, will be necessary to ensure the longevity of your porcelain veneers, but this can be accomplished without altering or adding additional and time-consuming steps to your daily oral hygiene routine. Dr. Wilcox will cover individual care instructions and examine your veneers for damage during your regularly scheduled cleanings and examinations.
Porcelain veneers costs range across Arizona from $1000 to $2000+ per tooth. Our veneers are guaranteed for seven years against any problems that may arise as long as regular dental checkups are maintained.
