Composite Veneers: These veneers are placed while in the dental chair in one visit without using a dental lab. The veneers are made of plastic (composite). These veneers are not as durable as porcelain veneers, but they can be color-matched as well as porcelain veneers. Composite veneers are considerably more affordable.
Porcelain Veneers and Crowns: If you desire to improve the look of your teeth in a more enduring manner, porcelain veneers and crowns should be considered. Porcelain veneers are constructed from a very thin layer of porcelain that is bonded to the front of the tooth. Porcelain crowns are more extensive than veneers and are recommended when a substantial amount of enamel has been lost. Porcelain veneers and crowns are prepared at our dental office and constructed at a qualified dental laboratory.
Bridges for Missing Teeth: Bridge treatment reverses the negative impact of missing teeth. Bridges not only enhance your smile, but they also restore the natural alignment of your bite, prevent shifting of opposing teeth, and discourage gum disease. The bridge is prepared at our office and constructed by a qualified dental laboratory. Highlands Ranch Dentist Littleton Dentist Colorado
At Home Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening can have a positive impact on personal appearance and improve confidence in your smile. At home teeth whitening requires two initial appointments. During the first appointment, our office will take impressions of your teeth to make the teeth whitening kit. The second appointment is a short appointment to deliver the teeth whitening kit, provide instructions, and record an initial shade of your teeth. Follow-up appointments will be necessary to monitor progress of the teeth whitening. Depending on desired results, the trays should be worn for 1 ½ hours every night during the first couple of weeks. Once the desired results have been reached, the whitening trays will need to be worn occasionally to sustain the desired maintenance level.
Implants: Dental implants are a great option for patients who are missing natural teeth. Dental implants generally consist of two major components: an artificial tooth or teeth, and an underlying permanent anchor to which teeth are attached. Used successfully for several years, dental implants anchor prosthetic teeth into your jawbone to provide a secure fit. The process of placing dental implants requires an oral surgeon or periodontist to place the implants and your restorative dentist to place the prosthesis. Please contact our office if you have questions regarding dental implants. Highlands Ranch Dentist Littleton Dentist Colorado More about
More about Porcelain Veneers
A porcelain veneer is a thin, custom-made porcelain molding made to cover the front of the tooth. Porcelain Veneers can cover unattractive gaps, mask stains, and conceal misshaped or crooked teeth. Each porcelain veneer is bonded onto the front of a tooth to create an aesthetically pleasing smile.
Why Dental Veneers Made Of Porcelain?
Porcelain is a durable material that closely resembles your natural tooth enamel in color and texture. Porcelain does not easily stain and does not decay which makes it great for dental veneers. Porcelain veneers create a natural-looking smile.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
- Radiant Smile: Porcelain veneers create a stunning smile!
- Natural: Each porcelain veneer is individually sculpted for your mouth and look natural.
- Don’t lose original teeth: Your original tooth is not altered very much to fit the dental veneer
- Tooth whitening: Teeth of all shades can appear bright white with porcelain veneers.
- Resistant: Porcelain veneers are resistant to stains from tea, coffee, and cigarette smoke.
- “Instant Orthodontics”: When covered with dental veneers, small gaps, minor overlaps, and uneven teeth can be corrected for a gorgeous smile.
- A Normal Life: Porcelain veneers look and feel like your natural teeth. You can eat the same foods as before the porcelain veneer procedure.
