Porcelain veneers can cover unattractive gaps, mask stains, and conceal misshapen or crooked teeth. Each porcelain veneer is bonded onto the front of a tooth to create an aesthetically pleasing smile.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

  • Radiant Smile: Porcelain veneers create a stunning smile! Our Denver area patients love the renewed confidence they receive after their dental veneers have been placed.
  • Realistic Looking: Each porcelain veneer is individually sculpted for your mouth for a completely natural look.
  • Don’t Lose Original Teeth: Your original tooth is not altered aside from the initial preparation to fit the dental veneer.
  • Tooth Whitening: Teeth of all shades can appear bright white with porcelain veneers. The color of a porcelain veneer can be chosen such that it makes dark teeth appear whiter.
  • Stain Resistant: With proper care, porcelain veneers are resistant to stains from tea, coffee, and cigarette smoke. They stay brighter and whiter longer than normal teeth.
  • “Instant Orthodontics”: When covered with dental veneers, small gaps, minor overlaps, and uneven teeth can be corrected for a gorgeous smile.
  • A Normal Life: Porcelain veneers look and feel just like your natural teeth. You can eat the same foods as before the porcelain veneer procedure.

The Dental Veneers Procedure

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do dental veneers typically last?
Dental veneers are durable and can last for many years, often up to 10-15 years or more with proper care. However, their longevity can vary depending on factors such as your oral hygiene, dietary habits, and the material used. It’s important to consult with a cosmetic dentist to discuss your options and maintenance.

Are tooth veneers reversible?
Traditional veneers are not considered reversible because a small amount of enamel is usually removed from the teeth before placement to ensure a proper fit. No-prep veneers or “prepless” veneers general do not require enamel removal. When no enamel is removed, the treatment can be reversible. However, this protocol has specific criteria.

Why are dental veneers made of porcelain?
Porcelain is a durable material that closely resembles your natural tooth enamel in color and texture. Porcelain does not easily stain and does not decay, which makes it great for dental veneers. Porcelain veneers create a natural-looking smile.

Is the process of getting dental veneers painful?
The process of getting dental veneers is typically not painful. Local anesthesia is often used to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

Are there any alternatives to dental veneers for improving my smile?
Yes, there are alternative cosmetic dental procedures to improve your smile. Some alternatives we offer include teeth whitening, dental bonding, orthodontic treatments like Invisalign for teeth straightening, and dental crowns for more extensive tooth restoration. The best option for you will depend on your specific dental concerns and goals, which can be discussed with your cosmetic dentist during a consultation to determine the most suitable treatment plan for your needs.
