Porcelain veneers can transform a so so smile into something that would attract the attention of a Hollywood producer.
With porcelain veneers your crooked and chipped smile will be healthy and beautiful. Porcelain veneers can even shorten or lengthen teeth and fill gaps between teeth. Not born with the best smile in the world? Your Denver cosmetic dentist can fix that as well.
Lowry Advanced Dental uses the finest cosmetic dentistry techniques to give you a beautiful smile with porcelain veneers. Dental veneers that match your face shape and your personality.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that fit over the fronts of teeth. Unlike dental crowns that cover or cap the entire tooth veneers fit over the front and just slightly up the back.
While dental veneers are more conservative than cosmetic dental crowns some enamel removal is needed for a smooth and natural looking fit. If you have ever seen someone whose smile just didn’t look right, it might have had something to do with how their porcelain veneers were placed.
A permanent solution is another thing that dental veneers and cosmetic dental crowns have in common. Because a portion of the enamel is removed teeth are too unsightly. This means the process cannot be reversed. If you want something that isn’t quite so permanent, talk to Dr. Leif Gambee about cosmetic dental bonding and enamel shaping.
How Porcelain Veneers are Placed
If Dr. Gambee believes you are a good candidate, this happens after a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, x-rays and digital pictures are taken before a color is selected for your new dental restorations.
Your Denver dentist also takes an impression of your teeth for your new veneers as well. Once the color is chosen, a portion of the enamel is removed before temporary veneers are placed.
When your new restorations are ready, which takes about two weeks, your Denver cosmetic dentist checks the veneers for fit and color.
If the two of you are satisfied with your new restorations, they will be bonded into place with cement and a laser to strengthen the bond.
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?
These types of restorations can last well over a decade or more as long as you take good care. Good care means brushing twice and flossing once each day. You will also want to eat a good diet and see Lowry Advanced Dental on a regular basis. Don’t forget to keep pencils, ice and anything else out of your mouth that might damage your new veneers.
