Veneers are a versatile dental restoration which can benefit you in many ways. However, understanding how this treatment works, when your dentist may recommend it, and what veneers can do for you are important aspects of determining if this is the best cosmetic dental procedure for you. Find out more about veneers with Dr. Steven Wilk and Dr. Jeffery Revoir at Artistic and Family Dental in Denver, CO.
What is a dental veneer?
A veneer is a tooth-colored, super-thin piece of porcelain which fits over a tooth to change its appearance. The veneer itself resembles a half shell which covers the surface of the tooth. Your dentist bonds the veneer to the tooth permanently after preparing the tooth by removing a small layer of enamel. This roughens the tooth, makes room for the porcelain and helps with ensuring a strong and effective bond. A dental laboratory customizes each veneer based on a clay impression or 3D model of your mouth, carefully designing and carving it to fit seamlessly into your smile.
When might my dentist recommend veneers?
Porcelain veneers can subtly change a tooth’s appearance or completely overhaul your smile. Your dentist may recommend veneers to improve the appearance of teeth with the following abnormalities:
- too-long or too-short teeth
- too-wide or too-narrow teeth
- uneven teeth
- slight crowding
- small gaps
The Benefits of Dental Veneers in Denver, CO
Dental veneers can improve the appearance of your smile and help you look and feel the way you deserve. Dental veneers are made of porcelain, a tooth-colored material which has many of the same light-reflecting and other aesthetic qualities as natural teeth. Porcelain does not stain and is durable, lasting many years before requiring maintained or replacement. Veneers are versatile and can help a wide range of patients.
