Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are covers made of strong material, such as porcelain, that your dentist attaches to the front of your teeth to cover any of a number of imperfections in your smile. If you’re unhappy with the way your smile looks but want to avoid extensive dental or orthodontic work, veneers are a great option for a quick but durable fix. 

Dr. Clifford and Dr. Cutler can go over several types of veneers with you, although some require removing a small amount of enamel from the front surface of your teeth. Removing that bit of enamel makes room for the veneer, which blends nicely with the rest of your teeth. The dentists can also match the color of your veneers to your natural teeth.

Next, they make an impression of your teeth to ensure that the veneer is the right size and shape. They place the veneers and make sure they fit before bonding them to your teeth permanently.

Why might I need veneers?

Your dentist at Arizona Advanced Dental may advise you to consider veneers when exploring cosmetic adjustments to your teeth. They’re easy to maintain and typically don’t take much preparation on your part. 

You can use veneers to cover or correct:

  • Stains
  • Discoloration
  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Short teeth
  • Large gaps between teeth

At the end of the day, veneers look entirely natural and normal as part of your smile. They’re also very difficult to stain, so you don’t have to worry about accidentally changing their color.

What types of veneers can I get?

Arizona Advanced Dental offers several options for veneers. Dr. Clifford or Dr. Cutler helps you choose the type that’s right for your lifestyle, preferences, and price point. 

No-prep veneers

Arizona Advanced Dental offers no-prep veneers to spare you the removal of enamel from the front of your teeth. Specifically, they use paper-thin yet durable Emax veneers that are made of porcelain and don’t require etching before bonding.

Conservative prep veneers

Conservative prep veneers are similarly easy to use, but they may require a minimal amount of etching or enamel removal to make room for them on your teeth.
