See Dr. Anderson for Porcelain Veneers
Does your smile make you happy? That’s what it’s supposed to do—for you and for the people who see you smile. However, if your teeth are riddled with a number of cosmetic flaws, then you may be sacrificing some of your happiness to imperfections that Dr. Anderson can conceal with porcelain veneers in Anthem.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers—also called dental veneers or simply veneers—are strong coverings that Dr. Anderson adhesively bonds to the facial side of teeth that show when you smile. They are made of either dental porcelain or composite resin materials. Both of these reflect light in a way that is similar to natural tooth enamel, so your smile will look completely natural.
In addition, Dr. Anderson custom designs each veneer for a specific tooth. This way, your smile will not look as if it’s made up of a row of identical little white blocks—some too big for their position in your mouth. Instead, your smile will look like your own teeth, only better!
What Can Porcelain Veneers Correct?
Veneers can cover flaws both large and small. These include:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Teeth that have wide gaps between them
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Teeth with permanent stains
- Unevenly worn teeth
How Can I Get Porcelain Veneers?
The process isn’t complicated. In fact, most patients can have their smiles transformed in just two appointments with Tramonto cosmetic dentist Dr. Anderson. After an initial consultation to discuss your desires and gather x-rays, photos and impressions of your teeth, Dr. Anderson begins to design your new smile.
At the first appointment, a slim layer of enamel is gently filed down on each tooth that will have a veneer. Most patients do not require a local anesthetic for this procedure. This step helps to ensure the smooth fit of your veneers, so your smile doesn’t seem to protrude unnaturally. We then take an impression of your prepared teeth that our dental lab will use to create your custom crafted veneers. In the meantime, Dr. Anderson places a temporary set to protect the teeth that she just prepped. This set also gives you some time to adjust to the feeling of veneers in your mouth.
In a couple of weeks the finished veneers arrive in our office. You’ll return for one more appointment so Dr. Anderson can remove the temporaries and replace them with your personalized veneers. With a little tender loving care—don’t bite down on anything hard with your veneers—you can look forward to showing off a smile that will definitely make you and others happy!
