When people decide they want to upgrade their smiles with cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers are a well-liked option. Unlike a crown that completely covers the tooth, a veneer is a super thin layer of a very substantial porcelain, composite bonding, or ceramic, and they’re available from Almeida & Bell Aesthetic Dental Center in Lone Tree.
When bonded to a tooth, the veneer creates a natural, translucent, and perfect new surface. It improves the appearance of the visible portion of your tooth instantly. (How’s that for instant gratification?)
Porcelain veneers can fix many minor to moderate troubles, including the size, shape, and color of your teeth. Gaps between teeth can be filled, as well as the lengthening or shortening of teeth to complete your pleasing smile.
We will also discuss both types of veneers: “traditional” and “prepless.” Before a traditional veneer is put on the tooth, the dentist first removes a very thin layer of enamel. Enamel cannot be replaced, which is one reason this method is irreversible.
The second method is called “no-prep” or “prepless.” With this type, enamel removal is generally not required. When no enamel is removed, the treatment can be reversible. However, this protocol has specific criteria.
In addition, it is possible to use both types of veneers for multiple teeth, depending on the condition of each tooth.
We will help you evaluate your unique needs and counsel you on how to reach your goals. Once you and the dentist have created a dental plan, we work with a laboratory and dental team to ensure everything is carried out as discussed.
