Why should your smile be any different? If you are looking to cosmetic dentistry to make changes to your smile, then you can get results faster with veneers from Desert Dentistry.
Veneers Provide Good Coverage
We are going to make a comparison between veneers and something you may have in your pocket or purse right now. Your cell phone may have a case or cover on it. In a way, veneers are like that case.
One of the reasons people get cases is to protect their phones, but many people see this case as a way to change the appearance of their phone and as a way to express themselves. By covering your phone, you can change how it looks and tell the world a little bit about yourself.
Veneers are a cover for your teeth. Veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth, which is why they can change your smile in so many ways.
To designs veneers that are fitted to your teeth, we start by making an impression. The good news is that you don’t have to use the “goop” that you may have held in your mouth previously.
At Desert Dentistry, we make 3D digital impressions by scanning your teeth. This creates more accurate impressions without any funny taste in your mouth.
The Right Veneers For You
No two patients are the same. Even patients who come to our office seeking similar changes may want to approach their issues in different ways.
As such, we offer three kinds of veneers:
✦ IPS Empress — These veneers are made with a ceramic compound, and they have earned a reputation for durability, luster, and strength. This is why they have remained one of the most popular kinds of veneers for more than a decade.
To get Empress veneers, you may have a slim portion of enamel removed from the front of your teeth. This creates room for the veneers to fit without affecting your profile.
The pressed ceramic used to make Empress veneers is what gives them their strength. They are less likely to chip or break than other kinds of veneers, and they stain resistant as well, which means they are likely to retain their whiteness for a long time, too.
✦ E.max — The process for getting e.max veneers is similar to the one used to prepare your teeth for Empress veneers. The difference is that e.max veneers are made of lithium disilicate.
This material comes in a wider range of shades, which means your new smile can look more precisely like the shade of white that you desire. E.max veneers are durable as well, but their primary advantage over Empress veneers is their appearance.
✦ Lumineers — If you are interested in some of the most advanced veneers on the market, then Lumineers may be for you.
These are the thinnest veneers we offer, which means many times they do not require removing any enamel. In some cases, some enamel will need to be removed, but this will be a fraction of the already small layer that is removed for Empress or e.max veneers.
With Lumineers, you will preserve more of your teeth while still transforming your smile.
A New Smile In A Matter Of Weeks
Getting veneers is a two-step process once you have decided to get them.
During your first visit, we will prep your teeth (if needed) and make the digital impressions to send to the lab. When your veneers are ready, you will return to your preferred Desert Dentistry office to have the veneers bonded to your teeth.
Typically, it takes a few weeks to create your veneers, but that is an incredibly short time to wait for changes that you could enjoy for several years.
Teeth whitening can produce an immediate change, but you will get new stains with time. Dental crowns can be used to restore or repair individual teeth, and braces can take years to finish moving your teeth.
With veneers, you can have a whiter and stain-resistant smile, restore the shape and size of all your visible teeth, and create a straight smile that could last for decades with proper case.
To get started, make an appointment with a dentist at any of our four Phoenix offices. You can do this by filling out our online form or by calling the Desert Dentistry location that is most convenient for you.
