Veneers are an easy and long-lasting way to improve both the appearance and functionality of your front teeth. This layer of porcelain is bonded to the surface of the tooth to give you the smile you desire when more extensive restorative or cosmetic dental treatments are unnecessary.

Problems solved with porcelain veneers
Some dental problems cannot be solved with veneers, but in the right situations, veneers can give you the smile you desire. Porcelain veneers are used on the front teeth, where appearance is a major consideration. By covering the problem tooth with a strong porcelain veneer, our Central Phoenix Smiles dentist can solve a number of problems:
• Discolored and stained teeth
• Large gaps between teeth
• Worn, chipped or broken teeth
• Misshapen teeth
• Misaligned or uneven teeth

Porcelain veneer is a durable alternative that allows much more of the tooth structure to be saved than when using a crown.

Applying a porcelain veneer
To make the treated tooth the same size as the original after the veneer is applied, a very thin layer of the tooth’s enamel needs be removed. The veneer is bonded to your tooth with a special, strong adhesive for a durable, long-lasting fit. Dr. Kariotoglou, one of top cosmetic dentists in Phoenix, AZ, will make sure the tooth color is perfectly matched to your surrounding teeth for a natural look.

Caring for porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneers should last for many years with proper care and taking a few precautions. Just as with natural teeth, coffee, cola, tea and red wine may stain or discolor your veneers; you should avoid these for the best long-term results. And you can chip or break porcelain veneers if you bite into hard, crunchy candies or ice. Small chips can be repaired; for larger chips or breaks, a new veneer may be needed.

Porcelain veneers can dramatically improve your smile at an affordable cost. If you’re in the Phoenix, AZ, area, ask Central Phoenix Smiles about using porcelain veneers for your cosmetic dentistry needs.
