Sometimes the ordinary wear and tear of chewing, or the occasional accident, can take a toll on the outward appearance of your teeth, even when the overall structure is healthy. Disfigurements such as ridges, chips, divots and permanent staining are common and not usually a cause for concern apart from diminishing the attractiveness of your smile. At Tafolla and Rikli Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Northeast Colorado Springs, it is our goal to keep you in great health and this includes having self-confidence. It is commonly known that your smile is the first thing other people notice about you; therefore it is important to make sure it looks as good as it possibly can.
What are Veneers?
We are here to help make this possible with dental veneers. These are thin, tooth-colored shells usually made of porcelain or ceramic used to cover the outer surface of your tooth. Each is custom made in our office to fully conceal one or more dental disfigurements. Once created, the veneer is carefully adhered to the tooth using dental cement. The finished product is a smooth, shiny and gently rounded tooth surface that looks healthy and aesthetic pleasing.
Dental veneers are routinely used to fix:
- Teeth that are permanently discolored
- Teeth containing a visible filling
- Worn down teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Teeth with ridges
- Teeth that are irregularly shaped (craters, bulges or similar disfigurements)
- Teeth that are misaligned, uneven or have gaps between them
