Porcelain Veneers

With porcelain veneers, you can have whiter, straighter teeth and a natural looking, attractive smile that will last for years with proper maintenance. Crafted from thin layers of porcelain that are bonded to the front surfaces of your natural teeth, veneers can hide cracks, gaps, and chips. With this form of “instant orthodontics,” discolored teeth can be whitened and crooked teeth straightened. Veneers can also be used to make small teeth look longer or to make uneven teeth the same length. Porcelain veneers can be matched to your original tooth color, making your beautiful smile look completely natural.

Your porcelain veneers can be placed on your teeth at our Denver area practice and can brighten your smile in as little as two visits. During your first visit, a small amount of enamel will be removed from the front surfaces of the teeth in need of treatment. Then an impression will be taken so that your veneers can be custom made to fit your teeth. After about a week or two, when your veneers are ready, they will be bonded onto your teeth. Your smile will be brighter, straighter, and more beautiful, yet will look extremely natural.
