Porcelain veneers are used to completely resurface an imperfect tooth. If your tooth is oddly shaped or severely discolored, Chandler, AZ dentist Dr. Mark Arooni recommends a custom-made dental veneer to cover the flaw entirely. This cosmetic procedure can become rather expensive, however the cost seems reasonable when compared to the multiple procedures that are used in lieu of porcelain veneers. Patients who opt out of veneers often undergo various procedures that take months, even years, before results are noticeable. With porcelain veneers, Dr. Arooni can completely change your smile’s appearance in just two dental visits.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are specially crafted from porcelain, to ensure optimal esthetics. Our ceramist will uniquely design each veneer in a specifically chosen shade to provide patients with a new and beautifully crafted tooth surface. For patients who want an even brighter smile, we recommend undergoing a teeth whitening treatment first and then choosing a lighter shade for your porcelain veneers. Veneers are ultra thin and designed to cover the front surface of teeth. Because a small amount of enamel must be removed beforehand, this procedure is irreversible. With proper care, your results can last between 20 to 30 years.
What Do Porcelain Veneers Correct?
Perhaps the best feature of this cosmetic treatment is the limitless benefits. Dr. Arooni uses porcelain veneers to correct:
- Chipped teeth
- Misshaped/oddly shaped teeth
- Severely discolored teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
Patients with crooked smiles can opt for instant orthodontics with veneers. Each thin, porcelain shell is permanently bonded over the front surface of your tooth, concealing the flaw underneath. Dr. Arooni is an experienced cosmetic dentist; therefore he takes facial structure, skin tone, and lip appearance into consideration when creating your customized veneers. At an initial consultation, Dr. Arooni will take a dental impression of your smile, which will be used during the creation of your porcelain veneers.
Patients can expect instant, dramatic results at the end of this cosmetic procedure. If you’re still unhappy with the rest of your smile after receiving this treatment, Dr. Arooni can recommend additional cosmetic treatments to provide you with the smile makeover you deserve.
Factors that Affect Cost
Porcelain veneers generally cost somewhere between $800 to $3000 a tooth. There are a variety of factors that affect the cost of your treatment plan, including the doctor’s experience, location of the facility, type of veneer chosen, and the preliminary procedures required.
Dr. Arooni uses veneers in place of multiple procedures. Although the initial cost may seem steep, it is well worth it when compared to the time-consuming procedures that it replaces. Dr. Arooni uses porcelain veneers to instantly transform imperfect smiles. When compared to teeth whitening and alternative orthodontic treatments, such as traditional braces or Invisalign®, the benefit of instant results, rather than months of waiting on your corrected smile seem ideal.
Veneers are designed to resemble the esthetics of natural teeth. Dr. Arooni uses his years of experience and training to provide patients with a seamlessly blended smile. Because your corrected teeth will closely resemble your surrounding teeth, most people will be unaware that you underwent dental work.
When you decide to indulge in porcelain veneers, you can expect an in-depth consultation with Dr. Arooni where he will discuss the treatment plan in detail and the costs involved so there are no surprises during treatment. At your consultation, he will examine your smile as a whole, as well as the individual teeth requiring veneers to create the most esthetically-pleasing results.
