  • Bonding
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Crowns and bridges

During a consultation, Dr. Sluyk will take the time to listen to you in order to gain a deep understanding of your cosmetic goals.

Transparency and integrity are a core part of building trust, and he will work with you to make the best recommendations for you as an individual.

What are porcelain veneers?

Most of Dr. Sluyk’s patients choose porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that your Scottsdale cosmetic dentist bonds directly to the surface of your tooth. They look and feel natural, require little maintenance, and last a long time.

What can veneers treat?

Veneers are really versatile–it’s another reason they’re so popular. If there’s something you want to change about your smile, there’s a good chance that veneers fix it. Veneers can treat:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Crooked teeth

Misshapen teeth

During your consultation, you will discuss exactly what it is about your smile that you want to change, and Dr. Sluyk will help you decide if veneers can accomplish your goals. For most people, veneers are a great option.

What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?

There are a number of reasons that so many people choose porcelain veneers, including the fact that they are:

  • Strong
  • Stain-resistant
  • Natural-looking
  • Long-lasting

How do I know porcelain veneers are right for me?

Almost anyone can get veneers. As long as you have enough enamel for the preparation process, you are a candidate. However, they are a long-term investment in your smile since they’re permanent. One day, you will need to replace them, so if that is a concern, talk to Dr. Sluyk about other options.

What does the process of getting veneers look like?

Getting porcelain veneers will undoubtedly give you a natural-looking, gorgeous smile, but it is a time investment. There are four basic steps to getting veneers:

Step 1

Consultation

Step 2

Smile design appointment

Step 3

Temporary veneers placement

Step 4

Placement of your permanent veneers

Consultation

We offer virtual consultations so that you can have your first consult in the comfort of your own home! During this appointment, you’ll discuss your goals, how to prepare for your veneers, and make a final decision about whether or not veneers are the right choice for you.

Your custom smile design

Your smile is unlike anyone else’s, and Dr. Sluyk believes it should stay that way. Here, Dr. Sluyk starts from scratch with every smile design because you deserve a smile that looks both natural and authentically you. What looks great on one person may look terrible on another. There are so many factors to take into consideration that you are guaranteed a truly original, customized smile designed just for you.

Temporary veneers

Temporary veneers are essentially the midpoint step. Dr. Sluyk needs to prepare your teeth for your final veneers, meaning that he needs to shave down just a bit of enamel to make room for them. Once the enamel is worn down slightly, he will take impressions of your teeth so that your final veneers will sit flush with your gumline.

Because you can’t walk around without a protective layer on your teeth after this preparation process, he will give you temporary veneers, the veneers that you’ll wear while your final veneers are being custom-made in the lab. These veneers won’t look as natural and won’t be quite as comfortable as the final things, but they protect your teeth and give you a feel for what you can expect at the end.

Final veneer placement

This is the day you’ve been waiting for! Once your final veneers are in, Dr. Sluyk will talk with you about what you loved or disliked about your temporary veneers and make any last-minute adjustments to your permanents. Then, he will bond your veneers to your teeth! You will get the incredible reveal you’ve been waiting for, and you’ll be ready to share your light and beauty with the world!

You may feel some soreness and tenderness after your appointment, but your smile will be beautiful and ready to go. You can take common-sense actions if you’re experiencing soreness or sensitivity, including eating soft foods or room-temperature foods for a while. If anything feels abnormal or you have any concerns, please call the office immediately. Our commitment to your experience extends far beyond the walls of the practice. We want you to love your smile.

Porcelain veneers are really strong and stain-resistant, so you really don’t need to do anything special to take care of them. Stick to a good oral hygiene routine, including brushing twice a day and flossing once a day. As long as you establish a good oral hygiene routine and don’t use your teeth as tools, your veneers should last you for many years to come.

Dr. Sluyk offers a five-year warranty for breaking, chipping, and cracking. For the following five years, you would be responsible for lab fees only. Dr. Sluyk will discuss all of this in-depth and give you detailed care instructions at your appointment.

There is so much variability when it comes to the cost of veneers that it’s difficult to make a general statement that will reflect your actual cost. However, here’s what you should know about how much veneers cost:

  • They are priced per tooth
  • They aren’t covered by insurance
  • You get what you pay for in terms of the skill of your provider
  • They are a hefty investment, so you should take notes and be a strong advocate for yourself

At the end of the day, how much veneers cost is going to depend on too many factors to generalize. If you want an estimate, we encourage you to call our office! Our staff love meeting new patients and would be more than happy to set up a consultation with you.

Porcelain veneers can last upwards of 15-20 years.
