Veneers in Littleton

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are a great option for restoring your smile if you have imperfections or issues that are making you feel self-conscious about your appearance. They are very thin, tooth-shaped shells of porcelain that are custom-built to cover up the fronts of your teeth

By doing so, veneers provide you with a gorgeous, picture-perfect smile that will last for years to come. Veneers are strong and last a long time, making them a top choice for cosmetic dentistry treatment. Contact us now to schedule a consultation at Carlson Family Dentistry.

What Is The Veneers Process Like?

After your initial consultation and approval, getting porcelain veneers in Littleton takes two appointments spread across about 2-3 weeks. The first appointment is where Dr. Cade or Dr. Carlson will prepare your teeth and fit your veneers.

The process begins by cleaning your teeth and numbing your mouth for your comfort. Once your mouth is numb, Dr. Cade or Dr. Carlson will drill away a small amount of tooth material from each tooth that needs a veneer. This ensures the veneers attach properly, and that they don’t interfere with your bite.

Once your teeth are trimmed, they will take impressions and molds of your teeth, and attach a set of resin veneers to your teeth, which will temporarily protect your teeth until your next appointment. You’ll be sent home, we will send these impressions to the dental lab that will build your porcelain veneers. Your veneers will be built from tooth-colored porcelain that matches your existing teeth perfectly.

Your final set of veneers will usually arrive at our office a few weeks after your preparation appointment. At this appointment, Dr. Cade or Dr. Carlson will remove your temporaries. Then, they will check your porcelain veneers to ensure they fit correctly. Then, they will be attached to your teeth permanently.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

Veneers typically last between 10-20 years. The lifespan of your veneers primarily depends on how well you take care of your natural teeth and your veneers. To keep them in great shape, make sure you brush twice a day and floss once a day. You should also see Dr. Cade or Dr. Carlson for a six-month teeth cleaning and oral exam. Maintain a healthy diet, and make lifestyle changes like quitting smoking and reducing your alcohol consumption. These steps can help prolong the lifespan of your new smile, and protect your oral health, too.
