A dental veneer is a cosmetic device customized for a patient to improve their teeth's appearance. They are thin shell-shaped coverings for the front portion of the tooth. When fixed, they look very similar to a natural tooth.
Veneers provide an alternative for patients who wish to have a permanent solution for their dental problems that could not be solved by regular teeth whitening and other dental procedures.
At Beautiful Dentistry in Tempe, AZ 85284, we provide veneers for our patients to enhance the aesthetic of their smiles. They help by improving the look of your teeth by giving them a natural appearance. It is an artificial restoration that does not strengthen the tooth but enhances the smile of a person.

What Are the Types of Veneers?
There are different categories of veneers based on the materials used.
Porcelain is the most standard type of material used for veneers. These veneers are natural-looking and do not stain easily. Additionally, they are durable and last long.
Composite resin veneers can be easily fitted and repaired quickly in case of damage. They are fabricated from tooth-colored filling material and secured to the tooth. It is more economical than a porcelain veneer.
These are ready-to-fit veneers that can be fixed immediately to a patient, and they are also cheaper than porcelain or composite veneers.
These veneers are 0.2mm in thickness and easier to fix as they do not require removing the natural tooth's enamel.
What Is the Procedure for Veneers?
The initial step is to consult with Dr. Martin Sobieraj to determine the veneer material that will be most suitable for your cosmetic issues. After this, impressions of your tooth are captured.
The procedure begins with a small layer of enamel scraped from the tooth for attaching the veneers. The thinning of the enamel will make room for the veneer. This step does not involve the use of anesthesia as only minimal drilling is done. The veneers are finally secured to the teeth after making sure of the bite and other alignment concerns.
