What Are Dental Veneers?

A dental veneer is a thin shell we attach to the front of your tooth to conceal various cosmetic imperfections. Our Aurora practice crafts veneers out of high-quality materials like porcelain and IPS e.max® that are virtually indistinguishable from tooth enamel. Once they are secured they will blend in seamlessly with surrounding teeth, giving you a smile that is both stunning and natural-looking.

Designing Your Dream Smile

A "perfect smile" looks different to everyone. While some patients wish to improve a single distracting tooth, others desire extensive modifications to several highly visible front teeth. Dental veneers are a great option because they can be customized for your needs. Depending on your goals, they can be used for subtle corrections or dramatic cosmetic enhancement. During your consultation we can discuss the different possibilities and develop a personalized treatment plan to achieve the best results.

Am I a Good Candidate for Veneers?

While veneers work well for most of our Aurora patients, there are some factors that can affect your candidacy:

Oral Health

Cosmetic dentistry is intended for patients with healthy teeth and gums. If you have tooth decay, periodontal disease, or other dental conditions, you will first need restorative treatment to improve the foundation of your smile. 

Bruxism

Bruxism, a condition characterized by the grinding and clenching of the teeth, can lead to excessive wear on veneer shells. If you suffer from bruxism, we might recommend dental crowns instead of veneers to better protect your tooth structure. 

Commitment

It is important to understand that veneers will permanently alter your teeth. While they can often last for a decade or more, they will eventually need replacement. If you are not ready to make a long-term commitment, consider a more temporary treatment alternative like bonding or teeth whitening.

Consultation

If you are curious about upgrading your smile through cosmetic dentistry, schedule a consultation at Pioneer Hills Dental in Aurora, CO. Dr. Wolbaum will examine your teeth and determine your candidacy for porcelain veneers.

Impressions

If you are a good candidate for dental veneers and decide to move forward with this treatment, Dr. Wolbaum will make an impression of your natural teeth so he can design the shape of your custom-made veneer.

Veneer Creation

Our practice uses a local dental laboratory for the creation of our restorations. Dr. Wolbaum will send the model of your teeth and his design for your dental veneer to the lab so they can create the porcelain restoration. This usually takes about two weeks.

Tooth Preparation

Once we receive your porcelain veneer from the lab, you can return to our office in Aurora, CO, for the placement of your veneer. The first step of the procedure is to prepare the tooth by removing a very thin layer of enamel from the tooth surface. Removing enamel helps the shell lay flush with surrounding teeth and avoid looking bulky.

Veneer Placement

Once your tooth is prepared, Dr. Wolbaum will precisely attach your porcelain veneer using dental cement. He will use a special light to harden the adhesive.

Follow-Up

Approximately one week after the placement of your veneers, you’ll return to our office for treatment evaluation. This visit is crucial because it allows us to evaluate the placement of the restorations, assess the gum tissue response, and to answer any questions you might have regarding your new smile.

The Results Are Incredible

Veneers can dramatically improve your smile while still looking natural. Don't be surprised if the results make you feel more attractive and confident!
