Dental Veneers

3Our dental veneers can improve the aesthetic of your smile by covering the visible front surface of unsightly teeth. Dental veneers are ultra-thin shells that are composed of a strong tooth-colored material. Dental veneers could be the best way to fix dental problems like:

  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Worn down teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Teeth of an irregular size or shape

Dental veneers can cover up all of these imperfections and more so that you can enjoy a more glamorous smile. Veneers will also strengthen the teeth and prevent some decay and damage. All you need to start enjoying dental veneers is a few appointments with Dr. Allison Lesko at The Fort Collins Dentist.

First, Dr. Lesko will examine your teeth, gums, and their supporting structures. If she determines that dental veneers are the perfect cosmetic fix for you, she will prepare the teeth for veneers. This process requires removing a small amount of enamel from the front of the teeth in need of veneers so that there is sufficient space for each veneer’s placement. Dr. Lesko will take impressions and send them to the lab so that you can enjoy beautiful veneers that are custom-fit to your teeth. After a few weeks, you can return to the office for the bonding of the permanent veneers to your teeth. Before the process begins, Dr. Lesko will ensure that the veneers are the right shape and fit for your teeth. During the bonding process, Dr. Lesko will cement the veneers to your smile and then cure them with a permanent light. If you care for your veneers properly, they will last between five and ten years.

Dental veneers promote an attractive, white, and natural-looking smile. If you’re interested in the benefits of veneers, give us a call at The Fort Collins Dentist today!
