If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, your Denver cosmetic dentist may suggest dental veneers. Veneers can correct a number of complaints about your smile and are easy to maintain. Talk to your cosmetic dentist about your worries about your smile, and find out if dental veneers could be right for you.
Dental veneers are thin wafers of resin or porcelain that are attached to the surfaces of teeth using a light-cured cement. They can cover up chips and cracks, correct spacing issues, make teeth look straighter, and fix problems with sizes. They can also be used by your dentist to treat severe discoloration, such as discoloration caused by medications, which does not respond to traditional whitening treatments.
To place dental veneers, your dentist will remove a small amount of tooth enamel and make the surface of your teeth rough so that the veneers will adhere as securely as possible. Before getting veneers, your dentist may recommend treating oral health problems, like gum disease, to get the best results.
