Porcelain Veneers have many Benefits for Patients Seeking Cosmetic Alterations to the Smile
- Posted on: Sep 30 2018
Imperfections such as broken teeth, gaps between teeth, or even misaligned smiles are a common problem for patients in and around the area of Golden, CO. Drs. Nancy E. Gill and Dallas D. Kenson are committed to helping men and women address these problems with a fast and affordable solution called porcelain veneers.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Patients may not be familiar with how porcelain veneers work. These restorations are essentially ceramic facings that are fabricated specifically for the patient to bond onto the front of the teeth and cover problem areas. These facings are made of ceramic because this material closely resembles natural tooth enamel. Additionally, it is strong and readily available for dentists to utilize in restoring the smile.
Porcelain veneers are put in place after they have been fabricated from a dental ceramist. These restorations are created after preparation of the natural tooth which may include filing down the existing enamel before taking impressions for the laboratory. Patients return to the office for the final bonding of their veneer in place.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Porcelain Veneers?
Most patients are appropriate candidates for porcelain veneers. These restorations work best on the teeth near the front of the smile, such as the anterior teeth or the “social six.” Other teeth are better covered with restorations such as dental crowns instead to properly withstand chewing and biting forces. Both are great options for patients to consider when covering imperfections.
