Using porcelain veneers to fix crooked teeth at Louisville, CO area dental practice

Veneers to Fix Crooked Teeth in Louisville CO Area

Porcelain veneers are restorations available in cosmetic dentistry that are nothing short of amazing! These thin shells of ceramic are used to cover natural teeth and disguise imperfections that may be impacting the overall appearance of the smile. Many patients who visit with Dr. Tracey R. Hughes of Louisville, CO may want to find out if they are a good candidate for porcelain veneers. Veneers are used to fix a wide variety of dental concerns, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Short or unusually shaped teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Permanently stained teeth
  • Misaligned teeth

Fixing teeth with porcelain veneers is a fast and effective way to disguise a problem that may cause patients to feel self-conscious about how they look. At Boulder Valley Dental Center, Louisville, CO area patients have access to veneers and other cosmetic treatments that can be used to address aesthetic issues quickly and easily.

What is a porcelain veneer?

Knowing what a porcelain veneer is and how it works is the first step in discussing treatment with your dentist. Veneers, sometimes known as dental veneers, are best for covering problems in the teeth near the front of the smile, or the “anterior teeth.” These teeth may have an imperfection that can be disguised with the placement of a thin porcelain shell. To place a porcelain veneer, patients will have to have a thin layer of enamel removed from the front of the tooth to ensure the veneer doesn’t add unwanted bulk. Patients can expect their porcelain veneers to last ten years or longer with proper care and attention with routine dental examinations.

Why choose porcelain veneers?

Why Choose Porcelain Veneers in Louisville CO Area

Porcelain veneers are highly desirable for a variety of reasons. Porcelain veneers:

  • Provide complete coverage of imperfect teeth
  • Can be prepared and placed within a few weeks
  • Are long-lasting and more permanent than composite resin bonding
  • Offer an affordable solution to enhancing the smile
  • Are created to match the patient’s existing teeth for seamless integration
  • Are strong and durable

Patients must understand that the teeth still need care even after the placement of the porcelain veneer. The natural tooth structure remains underneath and is exposed on the backside. This still makes the tooth susceptible to problems such as periodontal disease or tooth decay. With routine evaluations, patients can catch any signs of an issue early enough to successfully intervene and reduce any further damage to the tooth or smile if left untreated. Our practice also educates patients on how to protect their veneers and helps them last longer. This includes proper brushing and flossing, and mouthguards for patients who have conditions like bruxism that cause clenching and grinding of the teeth. This can cause breakage or veneer loss if not managed appropriately. Speak to your dentist to find out if porcelain veneers are right for you.
