Dental Veneers

At Peak Dental Care in Centennial, Colorado, Dr. Scott Lindsay and his talented staff provide a wide range of dental care services, including the placement of dental veneers. These thin shells are custom-made for each patient and can be used to cover and improve the appearance of stained, chipped, or misaligned teeth. Dental veneers can also be used to close gaps between teeth or make the teeth appear longer. Dr. Lindsay’s team is highly skilled in placing this cosmetic dentistry procedure, giving you the perfect smile you’ve always wanted. 


What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin shells made from porcelain or composite resin material designed to cover your teeth’ front surface. We can use them to correct aesthetic issues such as stain discoloration, chips, cracks, misshapen or crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, or worn-down enamel. They are custom crafted for each patient using impressions and measurements Dr. Scott Lindsay took at Peak Dental Care in Centennial, Colorado. 


What are the Benefits of Dental Veneers?

One of the most significant benefits of dental veneers is that they provide a quick and effective solution to many cosmetic issues with minimal invasion into your natural tooth structure. Minimal invasion means less drilling and preparation than other options, such as crowns or bridges, which require more extensive removal of tooth structure to fit correctly on your teeth. 

Additionally, unlike natural tooth enamel which can wear down over time due to eating habits and everyday use, dental veneers have a relatively long lifespan if cared for properly through regular maintenance visits with Dr. Lindsay’s office at Peak Dental Care Centennial, Colorado. 


What to Expect When Getting Dental Veneers

Getting started with getting dental veneers involves a consultation appointment with Dr. Scott Lindsay at Peak Dental Care. He will take an impression or scan of your current smile and discuss any specific concerns you may have so that he can create an individualized treatment plan tailored specifically for you and your goals for your final results. 

Once this step is completed, he will begin prepping your teeth by removing a thin layer of the front surface (this amount will vary depending on what material you use). We may place temporary veneers while your permanent ones are being crafted in a lab. 

The lab will match the shape, size, color, and texture discussed during the consultation stage. After permanent ones return from the lab, they will be bonded securely onto prepared surfaces using strong bonding agents. In some cases, if no additional prep work needs to be done, they may even be attached directly without removing any existing tooth structure. 


Aftercare and Maintenance for Your New Smile 

After successful placement at peak dental care in Centennial, a follow-up visit is usually recommended about 4 – 6 weeks post-op for a checkup. During the checkup, we evaluate bite, aesthetics, alignment, etc. Any adjustments needed should be made at that time before leaving our office. 

It’s also essential for patients to know that not all materials used for crafting these restorations have the same life spans. Good oral health, including brushing twice daily plus flossing once daily, followed up with regularly scheduled cleanings every six months plus yearly exams, helps extend their life span significantly. 

With proper maintenance, most people find their new smiles last anywhere from 5-10+ years! It’s crucial to continue using non-abrasive toothpaste and soft bristle brushes to help preserve the underlying bond even further.
