What Is a Veneer?
A dental veneer is a thin porcelain shell that fits over the front surface of a tooth to conceal a variety of cosmetic imperfections and enhance the appearance of your smile.

Advanced Technology to Visualize Your New Smile
Many patients want to see what their new smile will look like before they undergo cosmetic treatment. Our iTero® intraoral scanner allows us to take impressions of your mouth, eliminating the need for messy putty impressions, and it also allows your dentist to create a preview so you can see what your new smile will look like before the impressions are sent to the lab.
The Cost of Porcelain Veneers
Cost is a very important factor in your decision to undergo treatment. The price will ultimately vary from patient to patient, depending on the material used, the number of teeth being treated, and additional cosmetic and restorative procedures you may need. Dr. Sielicki can provide you with a personalized estimate for your treatment during your consultation at our Scottsdale practice.
Because veneers are considered cosmetic dentistry and thus elective treatment, insurance does not cover the cost. However, we do provide options to make treatment more affordable. We are happy to accept financing through CareCredit®, and we'll help you coordinate a payment plan that works for your budget.

Not Sure if Veneers are Right for You? Arrange a consultation to find out
If you are unhappy with your teeth due to cosmetic imperfections, cosmetic dentistry treatments like porcelain veneers are often an excellent option to transform your smile. However, they are not for everyone. During your initial consultation at our Scottsdale dental practice, your dentist will examine your mouth and discuss your goals to determine the best course of treatment for you.

Candidates for Treatment
During your consultation, we will ask you some questions about your health and lifestyle to make sure dental veneers are a good option for your smile. You may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers if you:
- Have healthy gums and teeth: A healthy foundation is essential before any cosmetic treatments can proceed.
- Are committed to proper oral hygiene and care: It is important that you properly brush and floss, as decay can develop under the porcelain veneer. Proper hygiene also helps your cosmetic treatment last longer.
- Have a sufficient amount of tooth enamel for treatment: Because porcelain veneers require a small amount of enamel to be removed, you must have sufficient enamel for treatment.
- Do not suffer from bruxism or wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth: Grinding and wear can damage the porcelain veneers. Veneers are not suggested for patients who suffer from bruxism.
- Are interested in a more permanent solution for cosmetic flaws: It is important to understand that once the tooth is altered for veneers, it will always require some sort of restoration.

Frequently Asked Questions About Porcelain Veneers
Are veneers painful to receive?
Most patients experience no pain at all during their treatment. Prior to placing a veneer, Dr. Sielicki numbs the tooth and the surrounding area to prevent discomfort and sensitivity. There is no recovery time, and most patients adjust to the feel of their dental veneers very comfortably.
Will veneers match the color of my natural teeth?
Yes; during your consultation, we will discuss the color of your restorations and help you select the optimal shade. If you are unhappy with the color of your enamel prior to treatment, we recommend first whitening your teeth and matching the veneer to the new shade. Patients frequently combine cosmetic procedures like whitening and gum contouring with their veneers to achieve more comprehensive enhancement.
Do I need to replace my veneers in the future?
Carefully designed, properly placed, and well-maintained veneers are made of durable porcelain and can last for many years. Nevertheless, your restorations will likely need to be replaced at some point. Because your natural tooth is reshaped in order to accommodate a veneer, the tooth will always need to be covered with a restoration (either a veneer or a crown).
How long do porcelain veneers last?
This will vary from patient to patient. However, with proper care and maintenance, your veneers can last up to 15 years before they need to be replaced. Be sure to practice proper oral hygiene, visit your dentist for regular check-ups, and be mindful of certain foods that could damage the porcelain. We want your new smile to last for as long as possible.
Is there an alternative to veneers?
Dental bonding and dental crowns are used as alternatives to veneers in the field of cosmetic dentistry. However, with dental crowns, the tooth requires more alteration than veneers. Veneers are thinner than a dental crown and only require a small amount of the enamel to be removed in order to achieve an excellent fit.
What happens if a veneer falls off?
If a veneer falls off, do not throw it away. Dr. Sielicki can easily bond it back into place during an office visit. Trying to reattach it yourself is not recommended. Contact our Scottsdale office if you have any problems, and we will schedule you an appointment as soon as possible.
I've had bonding in the past but want veneers. Is that possible?
Yes. However, you will need an examination by our dentist to determine if you have sufficient enamel first. Once Dr. Sielicki determines your tooth is healthy enough for a veneer, we can move forward with replacing the bonding material with a custom veneer.
