Many people, for a variety of reasons, wish to improve the appearance of their smiles. Perhaps you want more self-confidence, have just found a new job, or you’re seeking a relationship. Maybe you just love to take selfies. Whatever your case, your Centennial, CO dentist can be your partner in achieving the look you desire.

Your Smile Restoration Options

For many, the go-to option for creating a bright and vibrant smile is teeth whitening. Though various products are available, teeth whitening is a process that may take multiple sittings, with mixed results. And teeth whitening is hardly permanent. So, if your preference is a solution that takes less time and lasts longer, you should consider veneers.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are best defined as porcelain covers that are thin and designed for your specific tooth shape and shade of white. On your first visit, your dentist will remove some tooth enamel to ensure that your veneer will fit smoothly onto your tooth. Then, for each tooth to be veneered, we will create an impression and send them out for the veneers to be made in the correct size, shape, and color. When that process is complete, you will return for a follow-up visit where your new veneers will be adhered to the selected teeth, instantly creating the desired effect that will endure for years, maybe even a decade or more!

How Do I Care for My New Veneers

While veneers are a durable cosmetic option, they still require care and diligence to maximize their lifespan. You will want to brush and floss as you would with natural teeth. Though the porcelain construction is strong, you can still damage them through grinding or impact injuries, so always wear a nightguard if either of these is a possibility. Also, you should avoid biting hard items – especially give up that trick where you open a bottle with your teeth or bite your way through fasteners. Instead, invest in a multi-tool and spare the risk to your smile. This way, your brilliant new face will be an asset for years to come.
