I just moved to Scottsdale Arizona and need one veneer redone where the previously one cracked and dental work including root canal and an extraction. I can't seem to move forward. Every dentist I have visited here wants to fit your entire mouth with veneers and not just one tooth since it brings in more money. They also said it's harder to match the color for one tooth. I had two previous veneers over the years and never had this issue. I prefer to have my natural teeth showing, therefore I have been rejected by these dentists to do just one. Can anyone recommend a dentist who actually cares about a patient's needs and doesn't just see them as a meal ticket?

Jennifer,

I was new to Scottsdale, too, and needed a regular cleaning and advise about teeth that might need veneers and crowns.

I found Dr. Kathi Mansell, a Scottsdale dentist, who is a great cosmetic dentist - thorough and gentle. She does have a new patient exam where she takes digital x-rays of the whole mouth and then advises on what needs restoration.

Will she do just one tooth? I am not sure, but I had a few teeth done, ones that were a priority for me before I even stepped into her office. The work was done well. You could call and ask her scheduler, and see if she can meet your needs.
