Porcelain Veneers Centennial, CO
Improve the appearance of your smile with dental veneers.
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic material bonded to the front of teeth. They require little or no anesthesia and can be the ideal choice for improving the appearance of the front teeth. They can mask discolorations, brighten teeth, and improve a smile. Highly resistant to permanent staining from coffee, tea, or even cigarette smoking, the wafer-thin porcelain veneers can achieve a tenacious bond to the tooth, resulting in an esthetically pleasing naturalness.
Porcelain Veneers FAQ
Generally, veneers will last for many years, and the technique has shown remarkable longevity when properly performed.
Diagnosis and treatment planning
It’s critical that you take an active role in the smile design. Spend time in the decision-making and planning of the smile. Understand the corrective limitations of the procedure. Have more than one consultation, if necessary, to feel comfortable about your objectives.
Preparation of teeth
This appointment will take from one to two hours. The teeth are lightly buffed to allow for the small added thickness of the veneer. Usually, we remove about 0.5 to 1 millimeter of material. Then, we take a mold of your teeth and send it to the laboratory for the fabrication of the veneers. This can take about one to two weeks.
Bonding of veneers
This appointment will take about one to two hours. First, we place the veneers on the teeth to check their fit and get a sense of the shade or color. While the veneers are resting on your teeth, view the esthetic results, and pay particular attention to the color. At this point, we can still adjust the color of the veneers by using different color shades of cement. After the cementing process, the color cannot be altered. To apply the veneer, we prepared the tooth by cleaning it with specific chemicals to help achieve a bond. With the special cement in place between the veneer and tooth, a visible light beam initiates the release of a catalyst to harden the cement.
Lumineers are Designed to Deliver a Beautiful Result with a Simple, Painless Process.
With our proprietary technology and over 30 years of experience, you can have the smile you’ve always wanted in less time and with far more comfort than you ever imagined. Lumineers are digitally designed to be ultra-thin (about as thin as a contact lens), so they can be applied seamlessly over your teeth to deliver a natural-looking smile. That’s why Lumineers is the #1 patient-requested veneer system in the world.
Not All Veneers Are Made the Same. You Deserve the Best, So Accept No Imitations.
Traditional veneers are generally thicker, and thus require more aggressive and irreversible removal of healthy tooth structure. The extensive preparation technique frequently requires shots and anesthesia to minimize sensitivity and pain and typically involves the placement of acrylic temporaries for over two weeks between visits. The minimally invasive Lumineers technique typically eliminates the need for shots or temporaries, so while you wait for your custom-made Lumineers, you’ll look great and feel great. While many dentists offer veneers, not all dentists have been trained to deliver the signature benefits of Lumineers, so make sure you consult with a Certified Lumineers Dentist.
