Renowned Scottsdale Cosmetic Dentist, Matthew E Nelson DDS can correct a range of dental issues with porcelain veneers and achieve a natural looking solution to common problems affecting the appearance and function of your teeth. During the consultation process, Dr. Nelson will review your cosmetic goals and recommend a treatment plan that can address your needs. With our innovative 3D imaging technology, each patient can view a mock up of their teeth and gums, allowing a comprehensive understanding of the treatment approach. This technology also facilitates doctor patient communication and can ultimately lead to well informed treatment decision and a more satisfying final outcome.
Most importantly, Dr. Nelson will contour the process to exactly what you want at our office here in Scottsdale. Too many times we see people who have had veneers done and they look like “horse teeth.” Dr. Nelson is very conservative in his approach and will give you the result you want with the least effect on the tooth. Whether you want no prep (Lumineers) or custom porcelain veneers, Dr. Nelson will help guide you with what is best for your smile.
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions. Our veneers are made by a world class lab and technician here in Scottsdale, Arizona. Many dental offices will save money and send veneers to a cheaper off shore lab. That will never be done here. We use the best because we expect the best result. These porcelain veneers are carefully bonded onto the front of teeth by Dr. Nelson to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement. They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.
Reasons for porcelain veneers:
- Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
- Crooked teeth.
- Misshapen teeth.
- Severely discolored or stained teeth.
- Teeth that are too small or large.
- Unwanted or uneven spaces.
- Worn or chipped teeth.
- You just need a GLOW UP!
What does getting porcelain veneers involve?
Getting veneers usually requires three visits to complete the process. The first visit is when you meet with Dr. Nelson to pick the smile you want. Bring your favorite celebrity smiles so we can transform your existing smile into your dream smile using Dr. Nelson’s craftmanship and porcelain veneers. Your next visit is when the reshaping of the teeth occurs and is done by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. This is the longest appointment of all and requires the craftmanship of Dr. Nelson at his Scottsdale office to have a great result. This appointment is many times done under sedation so you can simply relax during the procedure. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and your temporaries will be made. Your temporaries will be made based on your preferences and be a test run for your final veneers.
On the final visit, your temporaries will be removed and the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Before finalizing anything, you will the have the opportunity to try out your new veneers and look at them in the mirror to make sure you LOVE them. When you give your approval, the veneers are bonded on your teeth and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.
You will receive care instructions for veneers. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
