Need Veneers? Veneers are an important part to a healthy smile.

Dreaming of a dazzling smile makeover, but don’t have a lot of time to spare? Dental veneers at Smiles by Hanna could be the perfect choice when it comes to having the smile of your dreams. But before you consider veneers, it’s important to know exactly what they are and how they work.

Need Veneers – An Aesthetic Treatment for Healthy Teeth

So you think you need veneers? Dental veneers are for aesthetic purposes only — not to repair damaged teeth, the way a crown would work — as such, your teeth need to be relatively healthy before we can start the treatment.

The fingernail-thin porcelain shells are bonded directly to the front of your prepared tooth. Each veneer creates the illusion that your enamel has completely been transformed in its size, shape, and color. You can specify everything from the shade to the exact contour of each “tooth.”

Placing several veneers side-by-side across the front of your smile can quickly transform your appearance in a dramatic way. Some people even refer to them as “instant braces.”

Need Veneers – Common Cosmetic Dental Concerns Addressed

Still think you need veneers? We think so too. Keep in mind, veneers are ideal for masking aesthetic imperfections, such as teeth that look:

  • Crooked, crowded, or gapped
  • Uneven, worn, or chipped
  • Misshaped
  • Stained or discolored

What to Expect During Your Treatment

Getting veneers involves an initial consultation with Dr. Hanna to discuss what aspects of your smile you would like to change. Then, you’ll return to our office to have your teeth gently reshaped and an impression made. From there, Dr. Hanna will create a mock-up of your ideal smile. About two weeks later, your permanent veneers are ready for us to bond onto your teeth.

Smiles by Hanna is currently accepting new patients! Book a visit with our cosmetic dentist in Gilbert, AZ to find out if custom porcelain veneers are right for you. Be sure to ask about our convenient financing option.
