Porcelain Veneers in Vail, CO

Porcelain Veneers Vail, CO

Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells made out of porcelain that are used to improve the appearance of individual teeth. These porcelain shells can dramatically and immediately transform crooked, stained, or crowded teeth.

Correcting Dental Concerns with Porcelain Veneers in Vail, CO:

  • Crooked or uneven teeth
  • Teeth that are worn down
  • Permanently stained teeth
  • Teeth with small gaps

What to Expect When Getting Porcelain Veneers in Vail, CO:

During a consultation, Dr. Dorothy Distelhorst will examine your teeth and discuss the results you can expect to achieve.

At your next appointment, your teeth are prepared to accommodate the porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers require ½ millimeter of thickness so your teeth will be reshaped accordingly. Dr. Distelhorst will then take an impression that will be used to design your porcelain veneers. A temporary veneer will be created and placed for you in the office, as your custom porcelain veneers generally take three weeks to fabricate.

Your final appointment is to place the permanent porcelain veneers. Your temporary veneers will be removed and your natural teeth cleaned and etched to ensure a solid bond. The new porcelain veneers are shaped and color matched to achieve a natural appearance. They are then bonded to your teeth using dental cement that activates with a light beam. This application method affords Dr. Distelhorst the opportunity to correct any placement issues before the bond is set.

Porcelain veneers look and feel just like your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers do not require any special care, aside from a good oral hygiene routine. They are crafted to resist stains and look like your natural teeth. This cosmetic dentistry procedure generally lasts from eight to ten years before you will need to consider replacement. With porcelain veneers, you can change you’re the size, shape, and color of your teeth, to have the smile you have always wanted.
