Your smile says a lot about you, and a smile that has been dulled by staining issues, minor chips, or other imperfection can leave you feeling self-conscious in social situations. Sometimes the best way to improve your smile is to have Dr. Jon C. Bauman fit your teeth with a custom set of custom dental veneers.

Dental veneers are basically thin porcelain shells that are custom made in a dental lab to fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile. The porcelain material is shaded to look just like natural teeth.

The first step in the process involves Dr. Jon C. Bauman examining all of the pertinent teeth to make sure that each one has sufficient enamel to secure mount a veneer. Should one of your teeth lack enough enamel or has been compromised by past dental work, he might recommend having the entire enamel layer of the tooth restored by a porcelain crown.

Once the health and integrity of all the teeth in your smile have been assessed, Dr. Jon C. Bauman will form an impression of your smile. This will be sent to a dental lab, where your custom porcelain dental veneers are meticulously crafted.

We will call you back in for a second appointment once the lab has completed the veneers. To install the veneers our dentist will use a drill to remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth in your smile. Then the veneers are cemented in place.

If you are interested in having the teeth in your smile restored by custom porcelain dental veneers, you should call Riverdale Dental Center at 303.659.1920 to schedule an appointment.
