Have you ever wondered how celebrities get such perfect smiles? While some may have great genetics, many others have another secret: porcelain veneers. Hollywood insiders have been using dental veneers for many decades to transform their smiles with the help of cosmetic dentistry. Columbine Creek Dentistry can help you get a Hollywood smile right here in Littleton.
Think of them as a dental facade for your teeth. Thin shells of porcelain are designed to cover the front and sides of your teeth to hide imperfections. They can make teeth appear even or longer, fill gaps or hide crooked teeth – almost any flaw can be hidden behind veneers to give you the smile you always wanted. In about two weeks, you can change the look of your smile, whether you want to fix just one tooth or change all your visible teeth.
Dental veneers do not fix flaws, only cover them. This makes the process much faster than orthodontics or other dental repair options. The procedure starts with determining which teeth will need veneers and getting impressions of these teeth to create the veneers. The shells will be directly adhered to the teeth, so a small amount of enamel is removed to make room for the extra width of the veneers. Once the teeth are prepared and the veneers come back from the lab, they can be adhered in one appointment. You will walk in with one smile and walk out with a completely new look.
