What Conditions can Porcelain Veneers Treat?

Glendale Dentist Serving Phoenix, Scottsdale, Peoria, and nearby areas in Arizona

Porcelain veneers are a durable, versatile and increasingly popular means of treating a variety of cosmetic tooth imperfections. Your consultation and exam with Glendale, Arizona, cosmetic dentist Dr. Donald Wilcox of Desert Smiles will determine if porcelain veneers are the best option for achieving your aesthetic goals and preserving your vibrant smile for years to come. Porcelain veneers can typically be used to correct:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Gap teeth
  • Misshaped teeth
  • Short teeth

Porcelain veneers are thin, shell-like layers of porcelain that are affixed to the affected teeth. Each porcelain veneer is custom crafted and tinted to conform with the surrounding teeth and provide you with a seamless smile. The benefits of porcelain veneers aren’t limited to aesthetics, however. Porcelain veneers also help preserve and protect the functionality of your teeth. The veneers are crafted from strong, medical-grade porcelain and are bonded to the surface of your teeth. This allows your bite to function as it normally would while also safeguarding your teeth from additional wear and damage. Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant and are as easy to care for as your natural teeth. With good dental hygiene, including regular check-ups and professional cleanings, your porcelain veneers can provide you with a bright, healthy looking smile for years to come. If you live in the Phoenix, Scottsdale, Peoria or Glendale, Arizona, areas and would like to learn if porcelain veneers may be right for you, please contact Desert Smiles Cosmetic & Sedation Dentistry to schedule your consultation with Dr. Wilcox.
