Transform the appearance of your smile with dental veneers in Boulder, Colorado. Many patients at Boulder Dental Designs have transformed their smiles with dental veneers. Veneers can make your teeth appear bigger, whiter, and straighter.
WHAT ARE TEETH VENEERS?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are ideal for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility. By choosing the shape and shade of your dental veneer, you can transform the appearance of your smile. Typically patients choose between four and six veneers to be placed on the top and bottom of their teeth. Although the veneer color should be similar to your natural tooth color, they can be a few shades lighter to give your smile a whiter appearance.
HOW ARE DENTAL VENEERS PLACED?
Placing custom teeth veneers requires a high degree of technical skill and attention to decorative detail. We place veneers routinely and design each case individually to match and enhance each patient’s smile characteristics. To place a dental veneer, your dentist, Dr. Montoya or Dr. Lai, will first take an impression of your teeth. With the image, they will send it to a lab where they will design your custom veneer.
Once the veneers arrive at the office, you will be invited back for a fitting. Your dentist will etch on the surface of your tooth to create a rough surface for the veneer to attach to. Next, your dentist will bond the veneer to the tooth. Finally, your dentist will shape and modify your veneers to your liking. You will leave the office that day with a completely transformed smile.
WILL DENTAL VENEERS LOOK LIKE NORMAL TEETH?
The ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains when bonded to the teeth. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
HOW DURABLE ARE PORCELAIN VENEERS?
With proper care, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for well over a decade. Dr. Montoya and Dr. Lai will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available. Refraining from using your veneers as tools to open and cut things will prolong their life. If accidental breakage or damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.
ARE DENTAL VENEERS RIGHT FOR ME?
If you live in Boulder, Colorado, or a surrounding area, you may be able to transform your smile with dental veneers from Boulder Dental Designs. In our office, we recommend that patients schedule a consultation appointment with one of the dentists to determine if dental veneers are right for them.
We recommend that you have healthy teeth with no outstanding dental concerns to receive dental veneers. For example, patients should be free of dental decay, and if they have gum disease, it should be well maintained. Secondly, we only recommend dental veneers to patients who do not eat hard, inedible objects. Although dental veneers are durable, they can break if you bite your nails, use your teeth to open things, or eat ice. If you meet this criterion, you may be an excellent candidate to transform your smile with dental veneers.
Dental veneers are an excellent way for patients to achieve their dental goals. If you are looking for a whiter, more significant, or straighter smile, dental veneers can help you. Crafted with porcelain, dental veneers are a durable and stain-resistant material. Typically dental veneers can last for years with the proper care.
