If you’re looking for the perfect smile, porcelain veneers can make all of the difference!
Dr. Chavez uses dental veneers in Lakewood, CO to change the color, shape, size or length of his patients’ natural teeth. In some cases, gaps can be closed or slightly misaligned teeth can be straightened. Just think of veneers as custom-made “shells” that cover the front of your teeth. The front enamel facing of the teeth are tapered down and the “shell” is permanently cemented to the tooth.
Dr. Chavez offers custom-made veneers using a process that takes about two visits to his office. During the first visit, Dr. Chavez and his expert team will use a buffing process to prepare your teeth. They will also take molds of your teeth. Once these molds are finished, they are sent to a dental laboratory where your veneers are created. When the finished product is sent to Dr. Chavez, he will call you in for a second appointment. It is during this appointment that he will check that each veneer fits properly before using bonding cement to secure it to your tooth. When taken care of properly, veneers can last for many years.
