Smile enhancement is easy with dental veneers
If you are unhappy with your smile, porcelain veneers may be a good option for you. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain bonded to the front surface of teeth. These restorations are in high demand, as they can address problems that might otherwise have an expensive solution. For example, a veneer can cover crooked teeth, or the patient can undergo extensive orthodontic work to realign the tooth. With porcelain veneers, many dental issues can be resolved. Drs. Ben Whiting and Scott Stauffer of Whiting Dental in San Tan Valley and Mesa, Arizona, can educate patients on the many ways veneers can enhance the smile.
What are porcelain veneers used for?
These restorations correct a variety of dental problems, including:
- Stained teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
Porcelain veneers are also a great way to improve the appearance of your smile. They can make your teeth look whiter and more evenly spaced. They are a fast and simple way to enhance one’s look and restore self-confidence.
How do I take care of my veneers?
To keep your veneers looking their best, you will need to practice good oral hygiene. Be sure to brush and floss your teeth regularly and visit your dentist for checkups and cleanings. By visiting Drs. Whiting and Stauffer every six months, the team can monitor the smile for changes and ensure any problems such as decay or disease are caught early enough for intervention. To ensure the longevity of your veneers, you should also avoid biting down on hard objects, such as ice cubes or pens.
What about composite veneers?
Composite veneers are less expensive, and they are also susceptible to staining and might need replacement sooner than porcelain veneers.

Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
