Porcelain Veneers: A Versatile Cosmetic Procedure

Dr. John W. Dovgan can help you conceal minor dental imperfections with custom-made porcelain veneers, which can cover small chips, cracks, and stains to create a cohesive, aesthetic smile. All our veneers are uniquely designed and matched to your smile for seamless placement. In just two appointments at our Phoenix, AZ, office, Dr. Dovgan can create the flawless smile you have always wanted.

A Versatile Cosmetic Treatment

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that fit over the front of a tooth. The porcelain material offers strength and durability, while also lending a brilliant and lifelike appearance to your smile. We can have the material custom-shaded to match your surrounding teeth, making them virtually undetectable. Patients can receive one veneer for a single affected tooth, or multiple veneers on visible teeth for a completely transformed smile.

Imperfections Veneers can Address

As a versatile cosmetic treatment, porcelain veneers can address multiple imperfections. Flaws we can conceal with veneers include:

  • Minor damage, such as cracks and chips in the front teeth
  • Deep stains that cannot be addressed with professional teeth whitening
  • Misshapen or disproportionately sized teeth

Sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics”, porcelain veneers can also create the appearance of a straighter, gap-free smile.

While porcelain veneers alone can produce stunning results, combining the treatment with other cosmetic procedures can have an even more dramatic impact.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers can completely transform your smile and can enhance your confidence as well. Since the procedure requires just two office visits, the treatment timeline is relatively short and involves little to no discomfort or a recovery. Veneers provide a great solution for patients with dental stains that do not respond to teeth whitening and is more durable than dental bonding. This treatment is also an excellent choice for adults who would prefer not to undergo extensive orthodontic work for minor misalignment issues or gaps.

While porcelain veneers alone can produce stunning results, combining the treatment with other cosmetic procedures can have an even more dramatic impact. Many patients choose to undergo both teeth whitening and porcelain veneer procedures as part of a smile makeover. This multi-step process allows us to customize the veneers to match a newly brightened smile, enhancing overall results.

What to Expect

When you first meet with Dr. Dovgan, he will evaluate your cosmetic needs. This consultation will include a thorough examination of your teeth and gums and an in-depth discussion to assess your overall goals. You will work together to design a treatment plan that will address your concerns and achieve your goals.

To begin your veneers process, Dr. Dovgan will slightly alter your teeth by removing a thin layer of enamel. This process ensures your veneers will not look bulky or unnatural. Once your teeth have been prepared, our team can take impressions, which we will use to expertly craft your restorations. Dr. Dovgan may apply temporary veneers to prevent any sensitivity or damage in between visits.

Within about two weeks, you will return to our office for the placement of your custom veneers. Dr. Dovgan will carefully apply them to your teeth ensuring that they meet your goals and maintain your proper bite. Once in place, you can return to your normal activities, enjoying a completely transformed smile.

Achieve the Flawless Smile You Have Always Wanted

A flawless smile can increase your confidence and enhance your entire appearance.  If you would like to experience the benefits provided by this treatment, contact our office online or call (602) 867-1899 to schedule your initial consultation.

As a new patient, I recently visited this dental office and left very pleased after my first visit. Both the dentist and his staff were very warm and welcoming. I hadn't been to a dentist in a few years and this alone was adding to my uneasiness about setting up an appointment for an exam, and then dealing with which dentist to choose on top of it all? (Like many things, putting off a visit to the dentist is never a wise move.) After sorting through many reviews I then settled on Dr. Dovgan's office and was glad I did. Both Dr. Dovgan and his staff had me feeling very at ease in no time. I found this dental location to be equipped with all the latest modern technology, very stylish & clean and not rushed for time...nowadays, a pleasant surprise. (...Also, special praise here to dental hygienist "Sonata" for her gentle approach and also for really taking the time to conduct a thorough exam and cleaning of my teeth & gums. Thanks, Girl!!) Additionally, also nice was the ample, easy access parking and the comparability in pricing to the many other dentists out there. :)Upon leaving I felt I had made the right choice for myself in trusting Dr. Dovgan and his team of professionals with my dental concerns and I learned that even though my end results were not perfect ( -due to my own actions- ), they were better than anticipated and attainable. If you've (too) been playing dental roulette, procrastinating out of fear of the unknown ( -"unknown as in: "what's really going on inside my mouth??" -or- "which unknown dental office should I choose from??"- ) then this dentist and his team may be the place for you to try, as well. I wouldn't hesitate at all in recommending Dr. Dovgan's dental services. Thank you for my positive visit to the dentist!! :)Remove review

I’ve been coming to this office for the last 18 YEARS (since I was 7 years old) and I love Dr. Dovgan! I never understood how anyone could hate going to the dentist before because I loved going to mine. He’s gentle, charismatic, and extremely knowledgeable in many different aspects of dentistry. The family feeling is great with the staff and they have always been so accommodating to my scheduling needs. I loved his practice so much growing up that I decided to join the dental field myself. I’d highly recommend anyone to come to his office.

I have always hated going to the dentist, but I've finally found a place that I like going to! The staff is extremely friendly and Dr. Dovgan is great at what he does. I always have a great experience with my cleanings and today I had a filling done by Dr Dovgan and it was fast and pain free! I would definitely recommend him. Thank you for making me feel at ease

Dr. Dovgan and every member of his staff that I have met represent the perfect blend of a highly professional, efficient and welcoming facility. They are up to date on the latest procedures, they are willing to take the time to explain what is going to be done and they stand behind the work they do always assuring my complete satisfaction. I've had a range of work done from simple cleaning as well as complex procedures and I have been totally satisfied with the care, the cost and the results. I am happy to do this review because I've had less than positive experiences elsewhere and I hope this review can guide others to a positive experience with Dr. Dovgan and his staff.

I have to admit, I am extremely difficult to please. Having work in large inbound call centers and dealing with nothing but complaints...all I can say about Dr Dovgan and entire staff is I have NO complaints! I only have praise and compliments! EVERYONE there is simply WONDERFUL.
