Not everyone was born with a perfect smile, but modern dentistry has made some pretty amazing advances in recent years. Until recently, our best option for enjoying a radiant smile free of flaws was to use dental crowns. But porcelain veneers deliver outstanding results, and you don’t have to compromise a healthy tooth for a beautiful appearance.
Enjoy the Beautiful Smile you Deserve
There’s nothing quite as gratifying as seeing the reaction of patients who’ve had their smile transformed with porcelain veneers. It’s really kind of amazing that a thin little slice of porcelain placed on your teeth can have such a dramatic effect on your smile!
Dr. Hatchett and our team want you to feel comfortable with the decisions you make about any cosmetic dental treatment. Before we recommend any procedure, we’ll take the time to talk to you about your goals and expectations. Veneers are an excellent choice in many cases, but we may be able to suggest an alternative that’s even more appropriate for you.
Porcelain veneers will definitely transform your smile, but they do require an investment of time and money on your part, so you should be thrilled with the results. You really owe it to yourself to see the dramatic effect that a treatment like porcelain veneers can have on your self-confidence!
How Porcelain Veneers Work
Once we’ve reviewed all your options and decided that porcelain veneers are a good choice for you, we’ll start by removing a tiny amount of the surface tooth enamel. The amount removed is about the same thickness as the veneer, leaving enough space for it to fit precisely and blend perfectly with your natural teeth.
Next, we’ll take an impression, which is used to make a mold that we send to our dental lab. Your veneers will be custom-crafted, and in about two weeks, your finished veneers will be ready and you'll return to our Denver dental office. We will make any necessary adjustments for fit and then bond the veneers securely to the surface of your teeth.
Finding Solutions That Fit Your Needs
For some people, the problem may be as simple as a minor problem like a chipped or broken tooth. For others, there may be a deeper underlying problem that has damaged the tooth and altered its appearance. In either case, Dr. Hatchett will review your options and work with you to come up with a treatment plan that fits your unique needs.
Over the years we've found that porcelain veneers are an effective treatment in a variety of cases. But after taking all your information into account, we may find that another solution is more appropriate for you. There are so many options available in cosmetic dentistry that we can create a fully customized treatment plan to help you reach your goals for a flawless smile. Please give our Denver dental office a call and we'll be happy to arrange a complimentary consultation with Dr. Hatchett.
