Dental Veneers Process in Chandler AZ – What You Can Expect?

December 26, 2018

Dental veneers are custom made porcelain or a composite resin shells that are fixed over your teeth to improve the smile. Veneers can be helpful in improving your appearance if you have chipped, misshapen or stained teeth. Dental veneers are stain resistant fitted to the front teeth to create a satisfying appearance by covering misshapen, chipped, discolored teeth.

The Trial…

Dental veneers are available in a range of shades to match the color of surrounding teeth. A trial veneers will be placed to compare it with your teeth in order to get an idea of what they might look like. If the gums covering the teeth in front of the mouth are uneven, the dentist will level them prior to the creation of dental veneers. After the trials of veneers to provide a smile preview, the dentist will create an exact model of your teeth and also form the veneers with wax to know how your new smile will look like.

Preparation of Veneers…

Once you determine your needs by discussing it with the cosmetic dentist in Chandler AZ, a plan of action is prepared. With the plan of action in place your teeth are prepared for the placement of veneers. The preparation includes the polishing of teeth to eliminate the tooth structure with the dental drill.

Once the teeth are prepared a mold is created. The mold is sent to the dental lab to create an exact replica of the teeth which will take a week or two. In the meantime, you will be provided with provisional veneers to wear. The temporary veneers are cemented on the teeth so there are no issues in your day to day activities.


Post to a couple of weeks you will revisit the dentist’s office for small modification or fine-tuning of your provisional veneers. The correction is vital for the exact function and appearance of final veneers. An impression of these provisional veneers will be sent to the dental lab which will serve as a three-dimensional image to create veneers.

The lab creates the custom made veneers and bonds them to your front teeth. The bonding of veneers requires an etching of exterior portion of teeth and the interior of the veneers. If you are considering dental veneers in Chandler AZ, you can consult us if veneers are best fit for you.

Our Reviews

Dr Heaton is as kind as he is competent. He treats me like a person, not a paycheck and I feel like I can trust him to only recommend what I need. I also referred an employee of mine who needed serious dental care and did not have a lot of money. Dr Heaton was flexible and kind and so helpful. Highly Recommend.

Most people dread going to the dentist but I'm always excited to go especially when it means seeing all of the wonderful people who work there. My family has been going here for more than 20 years and I've never had a bad experience. You can count on walking out the door with a huge (minty fresh) smile on your face. Highly recommended!
