Cosmetic Dentistry: Porcelain Veneers
If your teeth are damaged, cracked, or uneven, then veneers may be the perfect cosmetic dental accessory for you. A veneer is a type of cap that is permanently placed over your tooth to create a professional, uniform smile. A veneer is made from durable, thin porcelain that is specially molded to fit your teeth. It is bonded onto the front of your teeth to create a dazzling, confident smile.
Veneers usually last for years and are an attractive alternative to traditional crowns. Veneers are strong enough to handle all normal activities without splitting or fragmenting. By completely reshaping your teeth and aligning your smile, veneers are an intrinsic part of complete dental care in Colorado Springs. You may benefit from a set of veneers if you have any of the following problems:
• Misshapen teeth
• Cracked, corroded, or chipped teeth
• A permanently stained or discolored smile
• Unwanted or uneven gaps between teeth
• Unevenly sized teeth
Getting veneers is virtually painless and typically requires no anesthesia. First, the teeth needing veneers are buffed and shaped to the appropriate thickness. Next, a mold of your teeth is taken. The desired level of whiteness is then selected. Once the veneers have been created, a special bonding liquid is placed between your existing tooth and the veneer. A specialized light beam then hardens this liquid, thereby securely bonding your veneer in place.
