Deciding on Veneers Scottsdale

What are Veneers Scottsdale (h2) Sometimes when a person in Scottsdale has teeth are chipped and/or damaged, a dentist has options to help make that smile whole again. The same applies if you have small, unsightly gaps between your teeth, or if your teeth are severely stained or discolored. These options include veneers Scottsdale. Many people have decided on this option with much satisfaction. My Scottsdale Dentist and Dr. Steve Poulos are experts at cosmetic dentistry including the use of veneers. Dental veneers Scottsdale are actually caps or covers that fit over your regular teeth. Some are made of dental porcelain and others are made from natural colored composite material. They are thin and can be fitted over broken or damaged teeth to recreate a beautiful smile. They are put in place with a very strong glue-like resin. They look and act like regular teeth. Veneers Scottsdale can help rectify many different issues that people have with their smiles. Not only can they help restore the look of broken and chipped teeth, they can also help with unsightly gaps between teeth. This can eliminate the need for orthodontic treatment. In addition, getting veneers can help you if you have severe discoloration of your teeth. In most cases, teeth bleaching may be recommended. However, in severe cases of discoloration, veneers may be your better option. Sometimes there are other options available to you besides veneers. Crowns are often placed over teeth to help restore the tooth to its natural state. However, crowns are most often used to repair damage incurred due to dental fillings and root canals. Veneers are a more popular choice when it comes to repairing multiple front teeth. While veneers Scottsdale are a great solution to many different dental problems, they have to be cared for as diligently as your regular teeth. If veneers break or chip, they can be quickly repaired or replaced by your dentist. He will tell you how long you can expect your veneers to last.

Cosmetic dentistry Scottsdale treatments and services at My Scottsdale Dentist include:


Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain custom made by a professional dental laboratory. They are securely affixed to the front of your teeth, leaving the underlying structure of your teeth intact. The end result is a tooth that is restored to its natural shape, size and function, but indistinguishable from other teeth.

Porcelain veneers are safe, effective solutions used to resolve a number of cosmetic issues including: Crooked teeth, Misshaped teeth, Discolored or stained teeth, Teeth that are too large or too small, Uneven gaps between teeth, Worn or chipped teeth

Dental Implants

For a complete Cosmetic Dentistry Scottsdale smile makeover, dental implants are an option. A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium metal. It is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of the natural tooth. An artificial replacement tooth is attached to the implant. The implant acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place.


Dentures are artificial replacements for your natural teeth and gums. If an accident, a disease or poor oral health care has left you with only a few healthy teeth or none at all, your dentist might suggest dentures to replace your missing teeth. There are 2 types of dentures: partial and complete. For both types of dentures your dentist makes a model of your teeth by taking impressions. The models are used to custom-make your dentures.

Teeth Whitening

One of the fastest Cosmetic Dentistry Scottsdale treatments is teeth whitening. Whitening of the teeth is performed for patients who desire a brighter smile. Available in a variety of forms, professional teeth whitening procedures offer patients many options to address their unique needs and preferences. The most popular treatment is in-office whitening followed by take-home bleaching trays. Tooth whitening is not a permanent solution, and the more you smoke and drink coffee, tea or wine, the more touchups you may need.

Invisalign and Orthodontics 

Today's braces are smaller and less noticeable. Besides the traditional metal braces, there are tooth-colored ceramic braces that are less noticeable. Braces and elastics can also be multi-colored. Invisalign is a system of clear aligners as an alternative to traditional braces.  We will help you make a choice.
