Colorado Springs’ Top Family Dentist Offers Porcelain Veneers For Chipped Teeth

Nov 13, 2023

If you’re tired of looking at your stained and crooked teeth in the mirror, consider getting a set of porcelain veneers from Bear Creek Dental Center (719-633-2828) in Colorado Springs, CO!

It used to be that when your permanent teeth came in you were supposed to make them last until your dying day! Over time, however, things like crowns, bridges, and dentures were created for those instances where permanent teeth needed replacing. Now, thanks to advancements in technology, you can replace all of your teeth if you so choose—they're called porcelain veneers and Bear Creek Dental Center can hook you up with them!

If you have cosmetic dental issues, such as discolored or damaged teeth, the Colorado Springs dentist's porcelain veneer options are a great way of correcting them. The veneers are designed to be indistinguishable from real teeth and are a common alternative to crowns and other restorations.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are essentially custom-made shells that are overlaid onto your existing teeth to improve their appearance, strength, and function. The shells—which are tailored to your preferences in terms of shape and color—are bonded to your teeth using extra-strength adhesives, ensuring they will last for many years.

What Does The Procedure Involve?

After the initial consultation, the process to get porcelain veneers typically requires two visits. During the first visit, your teeth are lightly buffed and shaped to make room for the veneers. Once this is done, molds are taken (to help with fabricating the veneers) and a color is chosen for the teeth.

On the second visit, the dentists start by cleaning your teeth with a special liquid that helps make the bond stronger between them and the veneers. Bonding cement is then applied to your teeth and the veneers are placed overtop. Lastly, a special light is used to harden the cement and hold the teeth in place.

Why Do People Get Porcelain Veneers?

According to Bear Creek Dental Center, the most common reason to get porcelain veneers is to correct misaligned, misshapen, and worn teeth. They’re also a good option if you're unhappy with the color of your teeth, and rather than repeatedly whitening them, prefer to replace them altogether.

What Are The Benefits Of Porcelain Veneers?

Though not a permanent solution, porcelain veneers are designed to last anywhere from 10 to 15 years, although, with proper care and oral hygiene, this lifespan can sometimes be extended. In addition to the cosmetic benefits they provide, veneers can also help you improve your eating, drinking, and speaking abilities.

“My teeth used to be crooked and discolored, and when I smiled or laughed, I would cover my mouth with my hand,” said a satisfied patient. “Dr. Mastin and his team performed a porcelain veneer smile makeover for me a few years ago. I couldn’t be happier with the results. They restored my confidence and made me want to show off my teeth.”
