We understand that it’s hard to consider most dental procedures to be “exciting” as treatments – at least, to anyone other than dental professionals. But porcelain veneers have outstanding capabilities that make them at least a little bit mind-blowing. Porcelain veneers accomplish so much for smiles, and they do so without putting you through an uncomfortable procedure. This blog post outlines all the reasons you should feel genuinely excited about porcelain veneers, and should contact us to begin treatment if you’re unhappy with your smile.
The Natural Look of Porcelain Veneers
Dental porcelain kicks other dental materials to the curb. Porcelain is superior because of its:
- Range of colors – Porcelain veneers will be fabricated to match your other teeth precisely, enhancing your smile without giving away signs of any dental work.
- Similarity to natural enamel – Porcelain is similar to enamel in the way that it filters light; it reflects some, while allowing the rest to pass through the veneer. This partial translucence makes the veneer look just like your other teeth.
- Thin construction – Porcelain allows veneers to made thinly. This is important when it comes to the porcelain veneer procedure, which we’ll detail below.
A Comfortable Dental Veneer Procedure
We strive to make every one of your dental procedures as comfortable as possible. Denver porcelain veneers take comfort one step further by taking tooth preparation out of the equation.
In order to receive most veneers and crowns, you’ll need to have your teeth reduced so that the restorations fit over the natural structures. This can mean anesthesia, drilling, and recovery time. Porcelain veneers are thin enough to fit over teeth without requiring any reduction, meaning your treatment will be fast and simple. No-prep veneers allow you to
- Straighten teeth
- Lengthen teeth
- Permanently whiten teeth
- Fill gaps between teeth
…all without losing natural tooth structure. To learn more, just get in touch with our Denver office.
