One of the advantages of living in a technologically capable society is our ability to change things with which we are dissatisfied. This extends even to our own teeth. No one should spend his or her life hiding her smile, feeling uncomfortable chewing or biting, or lacking self confidence due to the appearance of their teeth. Your Denver cosmetic dentist offers countless way to alter your smile, but one of the most effective is porcelain veneers.
Why are porcelain veneers a highly recommended way to restructure my smile?
Porcelain veneers are incredibly thin, strong, and personalizable: they can be made in any shade or shape. These characteristics mean that porcelain veneers can be applied in just a few appointments, with minimal to no natural tooth preparation, and ultimately match your natural teeth perfectly. Check out the following illustrations to get a visual depiction of exactly how porcelain veneers work.
Your Denver cosmetic dentist feels that porcelain veneers are advantageous in their many dual cosmetic and functional effects. Your Denver cosmetic dentist can use porcelain veneers to close gaps between teeth, reshape teeth, or hide discoloration. And in addition to changing the way your smile looks, porcelain veneers strengthen teeth by providing a new enamel-like surface. This means reduced tooth sensitivity and a more comfortable bite.
Sounds amazing! But exactly what are porcelain veneers, and what will the procedure be like?
Porcelain veneers are thin layers of porcelain that your Denver cosmetic dentist permanently bonds over existing teeth. Porcelain veneers can be cared for like natural teeth, and last upwards of ten years. As the porcelain veneers are super thin, only a small amount of natural tooth needs to be removed to prepare the area (unlike with standard veneers or crowns). This reduces the need for anesthesia, and means your natural teeth will still thrive beneath veneers, protected by the restorative structure. The entire procedure can be completed in only two visits to your Denver cosmetic dentist at Cherry Creek Dentistry.
