What are Dental Veneers?

Dental Veneer Services In Denver

Denver patients wonder what porcelain veneers for teeth can do for your smile.Dental veneers are small, wafer-thin shells that cover your teeth. They are bonded to the surface of your tooth to help with their appearance, whether that is by improving the color, shape, size, or length.

Dental veneers can make your teeth look whiter and the effect can last a long time because porcelain is stain resistant. Additionally, porcelain veneers can correct a broken or misshapen tooth, without the need for a dental crown.

Veneers for teeth fill in gaps, and give you a more even and symmetrical smile. There’s also a low chance of irritation with porcelain veneers, because, in general, gums tolerate the porcelain material very well.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers:

  • Natural Appearance – Each porcelain veneer is individually customized to your mouth and to ensure a realistic look.
  • Scratch and Stain Resistant – With proper maintenance, porcelain veneers are resistant to stains from tea, coffee, and cigarette smoke.
  • Conservative Option to Crowns – Veneers are considered more conservative than crowns since less of the tooth needs to be removed in order to place a veneer.
  • Gives Your Smile a Healthier Look – When covered with dental veneers, the appearance of small imperfections in your teeth are instantly resolved.
