At the practice of Drs. Nancy E. Gill and Dallas D. Kenson, patients in the area of Golden, CO are able to achieve healthy, beautiful smiles with cosmetic dentistry services. One of the more popular options for patients who have imperfections of the smile is that of the porcelain veneer. Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic facings that are custom-created for patients to enhance their appearance.
How do porcelain veneers work?
Our dentists describe porcelain veneers as methods of disguise for imperfect teeth. The teeth near the front of the mouth, often called the anterior teeth, are those that are seen when patients speak, laugh, and smile with others. These teeth may have a variety of imperfections, including permanent staining, breakage, unusual shape, or even gaps. These imperfections can make patients feel incredibly self-conscious about their appearance. Because of this, porcelain veneers can help—they can be bonded onto the front of the teeth to completely change the look of the smile and hide these specific concerns.
A porcelain veneer is best for a patient who has a healthy smile and wants to improve the appearance of their anterior teeth. Patients are evaluated during a consultation appointment to see if they are an appropriate candidate. Once patients have chosen to move forward with the creation and placement of a porcelain veneer, they will undergo preparatory work in the dental chair. This includes filing down the enamel from the front of the tooth before taking impressions. The dentist will use the impressions to create the restoration from porcelain through a dental laboratory with a ceramist. Once the final veneer is complete, the patient returns to eth dental office to have it bonded in place, allowing them to feel confident once again in their smile and overall appearance!
