Veneers are thin, semi-translucent shells that are placed over your existing teeth to restore your smile to a natural, beautiful glow. Ceramic veneers are made from tooth-colored porcelain to fit perfectly with your smile aesthetic. Compared to other veneer materials, ceramic veneers last longer and mimic your natural teeth more effectively. At Creekside Dentistry, Dr. Watz may suggest ceramic veneers as part of your cosmetic dentistry treatment to correct the following cosmetic dental flaws:
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Very worn teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Misaligned or uneven teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Gapped or spaced teeth
Custom-made to fit your smile, ceramic veneers in Fort Collins, Colorado generally require two visits to our office to apply. During your first appointment, our skilled dental team will perform a thorough examination and take an impression of your teeth from which your ceramic veneers will be created. To place your ceramic veneers, a small layer of enamel is removed from the tooth’s surface. Dr. Watz will then fit and trim the veneers to ensure a perfect fit. Once the tooth surface is prepared, the veneer is permanently bonded to your teeth using a special cement activated by a light.
