What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Are you dissatisfied with your teeth or dental appearance? If you are interested in having cosmetic dentistry done, you may have heard of dental veneers. You are probably wondering, “What are dental veneers?” Veneers are extremely thin shells that are custom-made to fit over your teeth either made of composite resin or porcelain. Veneers cover the front of the tooth to improve its overall appearance. Porcelain veneers in Denver can change many aspects including the size, color, shape, or length of your teeth.

Veneers can be made from either resin or porcelain. Porcelain veneers look more natural than resin veneers because the material is more vibrant and life-like creating a subtle, translucent quality that allows light to reflect like a natural tooth. These restorations are handcrafted by a highly skilled technician, using state-of-the-art technology that specifically tailors the ceramics to fit and match each person’s mouth. The result is so beautiful and natural, you can’t help but to smile and show everyone your new teeth. We will help you determine which type of veneer is right for you with a complimentary consultation with Dr. Robin. Now that you know more about “What are porcelain veneers?” we will discuss the most common types.

The Most Common Types of Veneers

There are different types of veneers. The most common and aesthetic type is porcelain. Yet, this type of veneer does require some preparation and is not reversible. Another type of veneer that you may consider is a no-prep veneer which is typically a plastic composite bonded onto tooth structure. Although there is less prepping involved, the resin is not as lifelike.

Porcelain Veneers Process: What to Expect

The dental veneers process involves preparing the tooth and bonding on the veneer. There are several issues/concerns that veneers will resolve:

  • Tooth discoloration: Because of coffee, tea, tobacco, trauma, root canal treatments, defects or even large fillings inside the tooth.
  • Worn teeth: A bad bite can prematurely wear teeth - Veneers can make a tooth appear longer.
  • Chipped teeth: A veneer can also cover any chips or cracks of the weakened tooth.
  • Misaligned teeth: Veneers can make teeth appear straighter without braces.
  • Irregularly shaped teeth: Veneers can correct shape and improve proportions.

The porcelain veneers process will address many issues or dental goals and give you the confident smile you’ve always wanted. Ask Dr. Robin how your smile would look with Porcelain Veneers. The process starts with a white wax-up that will provide customized models of how your new smile will look, allowing you to design then see the “before” and “after” before you even begin. The wax-up also streamlines the process making it easier and more predictable. We would love to help you love your smile. We are located in Centennial, CO, and Denver, CO.
