Porcelain Veneers Colorado Springs

Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored porcelain facings which cover the front of a tooth to improve its appearance. We use veneers as one of the most effective ways to cover imperfections such as chips, permanent stains and even crooked teeth.

Patients need three appointments for the entire procedure: diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation, and bonding.

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, about a half a millimeter of the tooth is removed. At this appointment, a mold is taken and sent 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, the veneers are placed 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, the color of the veneers can still be adjusted with the shade of the cement to be used. The color cannot be altered after veneers are cemented. To apply the veneer, the tooth is cleansed with specific chemicals to achieve a bond. Once a special cement is sandwiched between the veneer and tooth, a visible light beam initiates the release of a catalyst to harden the cement.
