If the teeth in your smile suffer from chips, stains, and other visible imperfections, it can leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance. One of the more popular and effective options for improving a smile with multiple imperfections is installing custom dental veneers.

Dental veneers in Littleton, Colorado, are porcelain shells designed to fit over the faces of each tooth in your smile. They are custom crafted in a dental lab to match the natural shape of the teeth. Dental veneers can appear just like natural enamel, being set to a brilliant shade of white. Since they’re not as receptive to stains as natural tooth enamel, the veneers will give you an easy-to-maintain, long-lasting, white smile.

Your dentists, Dr. Karlin and Dr. Petracek, will start the treatment by examining all of the teeth in your smile, making sure you have strong enamel on each tooth. If one or two teeth lack the sufficient enamel to anchor a dental veneer, they might recommend restoring the tooth with a porcelain crown.

Then, they will cast a detailed impression of your smile. It will be sent to the dental lab where your veneers will be custom made to match the faces of each tooth.

Drs. Karlin and Petracek will call you back into Dakota Ridge Dental for the second appointment to install your new dental veneers when they are ready. To install them, they will use a drill and will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. Then, they will cement the corresponding veneer in place.
