Understanding The Basics

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are very thin, tooth-shaped pieces of porcelain. They are designed to look just like natural teeth, and to fit around your existing tooth structure. They cover up the front chewing surfaces of your teeth, covering up common cosmetic flaws like stains, chips, and more.

Veneers are sculpted by hand at a dental lab to make sure they look and feel completely natural. They're extremely durable, with a long lifespan and unbeatable stain resistance. They are also very versatile, and can treat almost all common cosmetic flaws in your smile. For these reasons, they're a very popular choice for cosmetic dentistry in Marana.

What To Expect

The Veneers Placement Process

After you’ve been approved for veneers at Bria Dental, your treatment will take 2 appointments over a period of 2-3 weeks. At your first appointment, your dentist will clean and numb your mouth. Then, they will remove a very thin layer of enamel from each tooth that’s getting a veneer. This is necessary to make sure the veneers don’t add bulk to your teeth, and that they fit perfectly.

Once that’s done, your dentist will take impressions and photos of your teeth. These will be used by our partner dental lab to make your veneers. Next, they will place a set of temporary resin veneers to protect your smile until your next appointment. You’ll be sent home.

During the next 2-3 weeks, your permanent veneers will be built and sent to our office. Once they arrive, you’ll come back for your last appointment. Your dentist will check the fit and finish of each veneer, and may make minor adjustments, if needed. Then, your veneers will be permanently attached to your teeth, and you’ll be sent home to enjoy your picture-perfect new smile.

Treatment Lifespan

How Long Do Veneers Last?

This depends on how well you care for your teeth and your veneers. Most patients will keep a set of veneers for between 10-20 years. To keep your mouth healthy, make sure that you brush twice a day, floss once a day, and come to Bria Dental every six months for a checkup.

Eating a healthy diet, avoiding chewing non-food objects, and chewing really hard foods with your rear teeth can also help protect your veneers and your smile. If applicable, you also should quit smoking and/or oral tobacco use, since this can raise your risk of many different dental complications.

Commonly-Treated Issues

What Can Veneers Fix?

Veneers can be used to treat almost any cosmetic dental problem. They're commonly used to treat severely stained teeth, uneven and misshapen teeth, minor chips in the teeth, slightly crooked teeth, and small gaps between the teeth.
