Are you curious about porcelain veneers, but not sure where to start? Dr. Hanna Mansoor in Gilbert is a dental veneer expert, and she’s here to answer your questions! Your smile should always be something that you are proud to show the world on a regular basis. Depending on the severity of your teeth’s issues, Dr. Hanna Mansoor may recommend porcelain veneers.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain Veneers are a quick and painless option for those looking to transform their smiles. Think of porcelain veneers as an upgrade or a make-over for your teeth. We are able to make your smile look red carpet ready in as little as two visits to our Gilbert office. Porcelain veneers are an easy way to address a variety of physical and aesthetic problems.

Veneers are made up wafer-thin layers of medical-grade porcelain that are fitted then cemented to the front surface of a tooth. They look and act like regular teeth, except they are made from our cutting-edge materials. Porcelain Veneers can hide any and all stains on your teeth, even those that cannot be removed with professional grade whitening. They can also help correct small chips, gaps, or twists in your smile. They can also lengthen the look of short teeth.

Are there benefits to porcelain veneers?

The short answer is yes, and veneers are an excellent option for people who have cosmetic issues with their teeth.  Other people will not be able to tell the difference between your original teeth, except that you will have a radiant smile.  The procedure for placing veneers is quick at Smiles By Hanna, and smiles are transformed in as little as just two visits to our Gilbert office. Veneers are also very versatile and come in a range of designs to be able to fit your teeth style. Veneers can hide issues ranging from chipped to stained teeth and can cover one tooth or your whole smile.

Since Dr. Hanna Mansoor focuses on pain-free care for all of her patients. The entire veneer procedure is painless and all the while improving your smile.  Did we mention that veneers are also stain-resistant? Because veneers are made cutting-edge materials, veneers combat future staining against coffee, tea, and other staining products. Porcelain Veneers, with proper care, can last over ten to twenty years.

What should I expect during the process?

Our team at Smiles By Hanna wants to ensure you know what to expect during the procedure. Dr. Hanna Mansoor takes the time to explain to patients each step in the procedure process so that they know what to expect during their two visits.  During the patient’s first, visit with Dr. Hanna, she will ask them how they would like to change their smile and what their goal is for treatment. She also explains that she needs to ensure that the patient is an appropriate candidate for veneers by taking a closer look at their tooth or teeth.

After clearing a patient, Dr. Hanna Mansoor will take the next steps in the procedure at her Gilbert Office by creating a model of their teeth.  With her cutting-edge machine, she will be able to create a veneer that’s the same thickness and color as the patient’s other teeth. Next, Dr. Hanna removes small pieces of enamel from each tooth to make room for the porcelain and to create a solid surface to bond the veneers.

Dr. Hanna Mansoor will explain to the patients that the permanent veneers can sometimes take up to two weeks to develop, but the wait is worth it! Once our team has created the porcelain veneers, the patient will visit our Gilbert office again to have the veneers placed. This second visit is quick and painless, but it’s exciting since Dr. Hanna Mansoor will be putting your permanent porcelain veneers by bonding them to your natural teeth.

The Smiles By Hanna team works with each of our patients to ensure satisfaction before they leave our office. Care for dental veneers is just like caring for regular teeth, and flossing and brushing is a must. If you know you have a habit of grinding your teeth regularly, then we would recommend that you wear a mouth guard at night to help preserve your veneers. Once the veneer is secure, our patients can eat regularly, and smile confidentially with their brand new veneers!

Will the veneer procedure hurt?

At Smiles by Hanna, our number one priority is to ensure that all dental work done at our office is done with as little discomfort as possible. We want our patients to feel happy about visiting Dr. Hanna, which is why we take extra care to reduce pain wherever we can.

To ensure you have absolutely no pain during the procedure, Dr. Hanna will ask if you would like any local anesthesia before your enamel is removed.

Dr. Hanna explains to all of her patients that they may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold foods. Patients gums may also be a bit swollen as well.

Am I a candidate for porcelain veneers?

If you are not happy with your teeth because of staining or small cosmetic issues, you may be a perfect candidate for dental veneers.  You must have healthy teeth and gums before any cosmetic procedure is performed.  If you are a patient that suffers from tooth decay, gum disease, or an infection, Dr. Hanna would have to treat these underlying conditions before considering porcelain veneers.

If you tend to chew or grind your teeth, you may risk chipping or damaging your veneers. Dr. Hanna may suggest you wear a mouth guard at night to help preserve your teeth and veneers. Porcelain Veneers are a permanent solution since a portion of enamel is shaved down to make room for your new veneer.

To be considered a candidate for porcelain veneers, we would recommend scheduling an appointment with Dr. Hanna Mansoor at her Gilbert office so that she can take a closer look at your teeth and their overall health.
