Veneers in Rifle, CO

A veneer is something that attaches to the front of your teeth to improve their appearance. These semi-permanent shells get bonded to your teeth.

The reason why veneers are popular is that they help with cosmetic dental issues like broken teeth, gaps, small teeth, and discolored teeth that can’t be fixed by whitening. Cosmetic dental issues can often be covered with veneers.

The Process of Getting Veneers

Our dentist will carefully examine your teeth during an initial consultation to make sure you are a good fit for dental veneers. If you have underlying dental issues plaguing your teeth, such as cavities, you will have to get those treated first.

Once it is determined that you are a good fit for veneers, our dentist will take measurements of your teeth. They’ll grind a bit of enamel away and take a mold. The mold is then sent to a lab for the veneers to be created. The veneers should be created to fit your teeth perfectly.

One to two weeks after our dentists sends that information to the lab, and you will have an appointment to place the veneers. During your second appointment, we will check to make sure that these are a perfect fit for your mouth.

Our dentist will clean your teeth thoroughly before attaching the veneers. Once your teeth are clean, a dental cement will be used to attach the veneers, and a UV light will be used to harden the cement.

Veneers aren’t right for everyone, and it’s highly advisable you talk to your dentist to make sure that this is the right path for you. When you’re ready to have that conversation, come talk to us at Rifle Dental Care in Rifle, CO!
