Porcelain Veneers in Firestone, CO

Are you considering porcelain veneers in Firestone, CO?  Dr. Adams has extensive experience in porcelain veneers, which are thin pieces of porcelain cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. This popular cosmetic treatment can correct a wide range of imperfections, including crookedness, gaps, chips, fractures, and discoloration. Veneers can be used to improve a single tooth, or as part of a comprehensive smile makeover on all visible front teeth.

Porcelain veneers are an ideal choice for enhancing your smile, as they are simple, strong, durable and natural looking. When you have porcelain veneers in Firestone, CO, the effect is very natural, as veneers are pearly white and slightly translucent, just like real teeth. Additionally, they are highly resistant to coffee, tea, and even cigarette stains, and won't yellow over time.

Porcelain veneers typically require at least three appointments: diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation, and bonding.

Treatment planning At your consultation, Dr. Adams will discuss your color preferences and other goals for your new smile. If you are having only one or two teeth treated, Dr. Adams will help you select a color that is very close to the shade of your natural teeth. If you are treating all your visible teeth with veneers in Firestone, CO, you can choose a whiter shade.

Tooth Preparation During this visit, which usually lasts one to two hours, Dr. Adams will remove a small amount of enamel, to allow for the small added thickness of the veneer. She aims to leave as much of your healthy tooth structure in place as possible. Once your teeth are prepared, Dr. Adams will take a mold of your teeth and sent it to the laboratory, where your porcelain veneers will be fabricated.

Veneer Fitting Once your custom-made veneers arrive, you can return for your final fitting. During this visit, Dr. Adams will check and adjust the fit and color match of your veneers in Firestone, CO. She will then harden the cement with a special light , do minor shaping, and polish your veneers to a brilliant finish.

Once your veneers are in place, they will brighten your smile for well over a decade, with proper care and maintenance. Dr. Adams uses only the highest quality porcelains and most advanced bonding agents, to ensure the longest possible life for your veneers. If a veneer eventually cracks or comes off, you will need to have it replaced so you can keep on enjoying a flawless smile.
