Maybe you have a cracked tooth, a small gap between your front teeth, or stained teeth that have not responded to previous teeth whitening efforts. Each of these situations are ideal for a cosmetic dentistry procedure known as porcelain veneers. Winter Dental in Arvada, Colorado, is happy to offer this and several other cosmetic procedures for anyone interested in improving the appearance of their smile.
A porcelain veneer is an extremely thin piece of ceramic that attaches to the front surface of your tooth to disguise minor dental imperfections. Dr. Stuart Winter or Dr. Nick Winter starts the procedure by removing up to one-eight of a millimeter of enamel from the tooth you want treated. This is necessary to ensure that the tooth is not too bulky to hold the porcelain veneer and its dental adhesive in place. Our staff always makes sure you are comfortable and do not feel any discomfort before proceeding.
After removing a small amount of tooth enamel, the next step is for your dentist to place a powerful dental adhesive on the front surface of your tooth and put a porcelain veneer on top of it. Next, Dr. Stuart Winter or Dr. Nick Winter shines a curing light on your tooth to force the veneer to harden in place.
Winter Dental offers several shades of porcelain veneers, which means you are sure to find one that matches the natural shade of your teeth as closely as possible. Porcelain veneers also contain similar substances to natural teeth, making it difficult for anyone to detect that you had cosmetic dentistry performed.
Your new porcelain veneer acts as a shield for your tooth in two important ways. First, it covers the original problem to help you feel less self-conscious. The veneer also protects your tooth from infection by keeping bacteria away from it.
We invite you to contact Winter Dental in Arvada at 303-424-4567 to request a meeting with either Dr. Winter. You will have the opportunity to see what your smile will look like after treatment and ask any questions you would like.
