Grey Tooth Design with Norco Family Dental on the right

What is the procedure for veneers?

Visiting your Greeley, CO cosmetic dentist allows you to do more than maintain healthy teeth and gums. At Norco Family Dental, many patients are interested in improving their appearance and smile.

Cosmetic dentistry is a popular dental field that takes many variables into account: including the shape of your face, the color of your eyes, and the harmony of your smile.

While attractive, symmetrical smiles are abundant in social media and advertising, very few of us are blessed with a naturally appealing smile. For everyone else, there are several cosmetic dental services that can correct more than one smile flaw, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Oddly shaped or aligned teeth
  • Yellow or brown stained teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth. 

The Porcelain Veneer Process

Many cosmetic dentists recommend porcelain veneers for their ability to resemble existing teeth. Porcelain mimics the delicate translucency of enamel while also being durable and long-lasting. With proper care and maintenance, many patients can enjoy their perfected smile for 10-15 years.

During the procedure, Drs. Stewart and Buffington may polish away a small portion of the existing enamel to ensure a perfect fit. Since this step is irreversible, porcelain veneers are a permanent dental restoration that may need replacement over the years. 

We may administer a local anesthetic to the gumline to keep patients comfortable and stress-free. Once we have selected the desired tooth shade, we will make an impression of the tooth. This impression is used to design an accurate porcelain veneer, which may take a couple of weeks to finish fabricating. In the meantime, we will fit a temporary veneer to keep your smile safe and secure. 

Once your cosmetic dentist bonds the veneer to your tooth and makes any necessary adjustments, you can enjoy your look as soon as you step out of our dental office.
