Your smile is important. Not only does it let you express your feelings, but it has a lot to do with your self-esteem. At Southern Cross Dental in Colorado Springs, CO, we understand this and offer our patients cosmetic options like dental veneers. Veneers are ceramic shells that cover your existing teeth and instantly cover up the look of dental imperfections.
Dental veneers are completely customized to each patient. They are able to fix almost any dental imperfection including gaps, cracks, misshapen teeth, discoloration, shortened teeth, and more.
To apply veneers, we will first remove a very small amount of enamel from your teeth, equal to the thickness of the veneer that will replace it. After the teeth are prepared, impressions are taken so that custom veneers can be created in a dental laboratory. During the creation process, you will wear temporary veneers since the process usually takes around a couple of weeks. When the veneers are ready, they are bonded to your teeth and made sure they fit right. You will then have a brilliant smile you are proud to show off!
If dental veneers sound like something you would be interested in for your smile, be sure to contact us. To set up an appointment in our Colorado Springs, CO office, call us at (719) 471-1717 or visit our Southern Cross Dental website, www.southerncrossfamilydentistry.com.
