What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers, also called porcelain veneers or cosmetic veneers, are very thin, custom-made shells that are placed on the front surface of your teeth. They are made from thin, tooth-colored porcelain or other materials. Veneers are a good treatment option for people who want to improve the appearance of their smile.
Veneers can be used to correct several cosmetic dental issues, including:
- Discolored teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Tooth size and length
Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments because they offer many benefits, including:
- A natural look. Porcelain veneers are made to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth. They also reflect light in the same way as your natural teeth.
- A durable solution. Porcelain veneers are very strong and durable. Made of more durable material than composite resin veneers, with proper care, they typically last for 10-15 years, while composite veneers may only last 4-8.
- A versatile solution. Porcelain veneers can be used to correct many cosmetic dental issues.
- A conservative treatment. Porcelain veneers don’t require a lot of preparation of your natural teeth.
Porcelain Veneers Procedure
Placing porcelain veneers generally requires two to three visits to our Denver dental office. During your initial consultation, one of our experienced cosmetic dentists will assess your smile and determine if porcelain veneers are the right treatment for you. If you decide to move forward with treatment, your second appointment will be scheduled to place the porcelain veneers.
Your dentist will prepare your teeth for the veneers by removing a thin layer of enamel from the front surfaces of your teeth. The dentist will make room for the veneers so that they fit seamlessly and create the most natural appearance possible. Next, impressions will be taken and sent to a dental lab where your porcelain veneers will be custom-made. Temporary veneers will be placed on your teeth.
When your porcelain veneers are ready, you’ll return to our office for your third and final appointment. During this appointment, your dentist will check the fit of the veneers and make any necessary adjustments. Once they’re satisfied with the fit, your porcelain veneers will be bonded to your teeth.
You’ll leave our office with a brand-new smile that you’ll be proud to show off!
Are You A Good Candidate For Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a great solution for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their smile. However, they’re not right for everyone. If you have generally good dental health and strong teeth but want to improve the appearance of your smile quickly and in the least invasive way, then veneers may be right for you. The only way to know for sure is to visit our Denver cosmetic dentistry office for a consultation.
During your consultation with one of our experienced dentists, we will address any questions and concerns you have and discuss aspects of the veneers treatment, such as:
What do you want to change about your smile?
The first step is determining which dental procedures can provide the desired results. All your treatment alternatives, including dental veneers, will be discussed with our cosmetic dentists.
What are your expectations of the treatment process?
An advantage of veneers is the relatively simple process of placing them. Veneers may be a great option if you want smile results that do not require months or years of treatment. It only takes two to three appointments to prepare your teeth for veneers and to place them on your natural teeth.
How fast do you want to see results?
Porcelain veneers allow you to have results quickly. While traditional orthodontics or other treatments take months or years to reach the final result, veneers are a great option because you will have a new and improved smile after two to three dental appointments.
How long do you want your results to last?
Porcelain veneers provide long-lasting results. They resist stains and breakage, and although you may need to replace them at some point, you should be able to enjoy their results for many years.
If you’re considering porcelain veneers, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced cosmetic dentists. During your visit, we’ll assess your smile and determine if porcelain veneers are the right treatment for you.
Caring for Your Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are strong and durable but require regular care and maintenance. Here are some tips for caring for your veneers:
- Brush twice daily and floss regularly to remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums.
- Visit our office every six months for a cleaning and checkup.
- Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste to avoid scratching or chipping your veneers.
- Be careful not to bite your nails or chew on hard objects, as this can damage your veneers.
- Avoid using your teeth as tools to open packages or bottles, as this can put undue stress on your veneers and cause them to break.
- If you play sports, wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth from injury.
By following these tips, you can help ensure that your beautiful smile lasts many years.
