All About Veneers
Posted on 06/04/2018

Your smile is something that should fill you with confidence, not embarrassment. Unfortunately, not many people want to show off a smile that isn’t perfect, whether they have a small chip or gap in their teeth, or their smile has started to look stained or discolored, which is where dental veneers come in. Veneers are a unique and versatile cosmetic dental treatment that can completely transform a smile through a simple procedure, giving you teeth that look flawless and completely natural. If you’re interested in what dental veneers can do and if they’re right for you, your local dental experts here at Gentle Smiles of Colorado have put together this guide on everything you need to know about dental veneers.


What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin shells, typically made from porcelain or a special composite resin, that is designed to fit over the surface of your existing teeth. Each shell is custom-made for each one of your teeth, made to look and feel like your natural tooth, but free from any kind of flaw. The veneers are placed on the front surface of the tooth and permanently bonded in place, restoring your smile to its former glorious and brilliant shine. One they’re in place, the veneers seamlessly become a part of your smile, allowing you to eat, speak, and maintain your oral hygiene routine as normal. Unlike a dental bridge or crown that requires your natural tooth to be ground down, dental veneers preserve more of your healthy tooth, requiring only a small layer on the front of your tooth to be shaved down to make room for the veneer to fit flush and comfortably on the tooth.

What Can Veneers Do For My Smile?

Why veneers are so popular as a cosmetic dental treatment option is because of their versatility, being able to correct a wide range of small imperfections in any smile. Instead of getting more costly or complicated treatment, a couple of veneers may be all that’s necessary to give you the perfect smile you want. Issues that dental veneers can correct include:

  • Spaces or gaps in teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Staining or natural discoloration
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth

Are Veneers Right For Me?

If your smile has some minor cosmetic issues that you want fixed, and you don’t want to go through complicated dental or orthodontic treatment, dental veneers could be the perfect solution for you. However, for cases of more severe smile problems, such as a broken tooth that leaves sensitive tissue vulnerable or damaged and puts your health at risk, other treatments may be recommended. To see if you would be a good candidate for dental veneers, just schedule a consultation and examination from your dentist. Once they understand the current state of your smile and your goals, they will discuss the recommended treatment options with you, which could include dental veneers.
