The Benefits of Veneers

Veneers are versatile and can completely change the look of your smile or replace a single damaged tooth. Their porcelain materials give them the same light-reflecting qualities as natural teeth, allowing them to blend inconspicuously into your natural smile. Additionally, veneers are made to last. Most patients get up to 20 years of wear out of their veneers before they require replacement.

What Veneers Can Do For You

Dentists use veneers for many things, including to repair:

  • cracked teeth
  • chipped teeth
  • slightly misaligned teeth
  • slightly overlapped teeth
  • slightly gapped teeth
  • discolored or yellowed teeth

Dental Veneers in Colorado Springs, CO

Veneers begin with a consultation to determine that this is the best cosmetic dental procedure for you. Before placing your veneers, your dentist will need to prepare your teeth. The preparation process involves removing small parts of enamel from the front of the teeth to receive the veneers. This process is irreversible, making your veneers a permanent cosmetic dentistry procedure.

After preparing the teeth, your dentist may place temporary veneers onto the prepared teeth to protect them. This is necessary because the dental laboratory which will design and create your veneers needs several weeks to do so. When the veneers return to your dentist’s office, you will have another visit to remove the temporary veneers and replace them with the final version.
