Porcelain veneers are a long-lasting corrective dentistry solution for individuals who want to visually improve their smiles. These veneers are made of a slim, see-through laminate that Dr. Rogge creates specifically for you. They are a critical part of effective cosmetic dentistry, because they are secured permanently to your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are the best aesthetic option for a multitude of dental matters, including:
- Wide spaces between the front teeth
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Permanently discolored teeth
- Misshapen teeth
How It Works
Many tooth restorations are done by utilizing a metal lining coated in porcelain. These restorations do not appear natural because their opaque or flat color does not allow light to pass through like a natural tooth would. Generally, there is a gray line next to the gum line.
At Artistic Smiles, all of our veneers are porcelain-bonded, and our restorations are done to appear as natural as possible. Metal-free restorations can revive your full smile to a more natural form.
For your initial appointment at our Longmont cosmetic dentistry office, we prep your teeth for the porcelain veneers and take a dental impression. That impression is used to custom-make your veneers in a dental lab. We will also form pleasing temporaries to simulate your new smile. Expect to walk away from your first appointment with a stunning new smile.
For the second visit, the porcelain veneers are permanently attached to your natural teeth. It’s not uncommon for adjustments to be made as you get your new teeth because we want to make sure everything fit perfectly, but those adjustments are minor and done easily in minutes.
