We have porcelain veneers available, which many identify with cosmetic dentistry. Porcelain veneers are a long-lasting corrective dentistry solution for individuals wanting to visually improve their smiles. A porcelain veneer is a slim, see-through laminate that Dr. Rogge creates specifically for you and your individual goals at our cosmetic dentistry office in Longmont. These veneers are then secured permanently to your teeth. Porcelain veneers are the best aesthetic option for a multitude of dental matters: wide spaces between the front teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, or permanently discolored teeth. When cosmetic dentistry comes to mind, most people have porcelain veneers in mind.
Many tooth restorations are done by utilizing a metal lining coated in porcelain. These restorations do not appear natural due to their opaque or flat color because they do not allow for light to pass through, like a natural tooth would. Generally there is a gray line next to the gum line. All of our porcelain veneer restorations done in Longmont, Colorado are porcelain-bonded. Our restorations are done to appear as natural as possible. Metal free restorations can revive your full smile back to a natural form.
For your initial appointment at our Longmont cosmetic dentistry office, we prep your teeth for the porcelain veneers, as well as taking an impression. The dental impression is used to custom-make your porcelain veneer in a dental lab. During your first visit, we 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 appointment, 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, we want to make sure the teeth fit perfectly. Adjustments are minor and done easily in minutes.
