A naturally perfect smile is hard to come by. With genetics, dental conditions, and trauma playing a role, most patients have imperfections that they would like to address. Scottsdale, Arizona patients who have mild flaws often find that the simplest of solutions can help dramatically improve the appearance of the smile. For patients who have a gap between their front teeth, there is a simple solution that is used by our dentists here at AZ Dental Wellness of Scottsdale: quality porcelain veneers.
What is a veneer?
Drs. Carlos and Mandap of AZ Dental Wellness of Scottsdale describe the veneer as a facing that is used to cover imperfections of the smile, specifically near the front on the anterior teeth. A single gap between the front teeth can be hidden with these facings. The dentists will custom-develop the porcelain veneers to match the rest of the patient’s smile, including the size, shape, and color of the existing teeth. By matching the veneers to surrounding teeth, the restoration looks as natural as possible. Two veneers are placed side by side on the teeth that have caused the gap to provide a fast solution to a gap in the smile.
Why choose a porcelain veneer?
There are many other ways to address a front tooth gap. Some patients choose veneers, while others like the idea of utilizing composite resin bonding to disguise the problem. Other patients might want to consider orthodontic treatments. This may be done if there are other alignment issues in the dental arch and bite that could be corrected at the same time. However, there are reasons why patients choose porcelain veneers instead. Porcelain veneers:
- Cover the teeth and provide a fast solution
- Take just two appointments to complete
- Last longer than alternative options, such as composite resin bonding
- Are stain-resistant, allowing them to provide results longer
- Appear as natural tooth enamel for seamless integration into the smile
- Enhance the smile in an inexpensive way
- Eliminate the need for more extensive procedures or orthodontic work
