Porcelain Veneers in Aspen, Colorado

Porcelain veneers are custom-made porcelain shells designed to cover the front surface and, ultimately, improve its appearance. A standard go-to within cosmetic dentistry, this is a fantastic way to address a range of aesthetic problems, such as tooth discoloration or chipping, as well as ultimately working to strengthen the tooth itself. 

We’re proud to offer high-quality, modern porcelain veneers to patients across Aspen, Colorado, and surrounding areas. Our solutions are easy, pain-free, and guaranteed to provide a natural finish that puts a smile back on your face. But, what exactly does this treatment look like, and how does that benefit you and your dental health overall?


Dental Veneers: The Procedure

Whether to address aesthetic issues or improve the appearance of a root canal treatment or a large filling, porcelain veneers are installed in a straightforward procedure with no drilling required. Instead, this treatment is a surprisingly simple three-step process that involves –


  1. Diagnosis and Planning

During your first visit, Dr. Ian Lowell or another Aspen Smile dentist will conduct a thorough examination to ensure that dental veneers are the right solution. This initial consultation will likely involve x-rays and perhaps even molds of the teeth on which you’d like porcelain veneers fitted.


  1. Preparation

Porcelain veneers should be applied to a smooth and even surface for guaranteed security. What’s more, the tooth in question will need to be reshaped to the thickness of that veneer to ensure a natural finish. At your next appointment, our dentists will reshape the tooth’s surface, trimming the enamel before making a model from which to create a veneer. They’ll then likely fit a temporary veneer until your next appointment. 


  1. Bonding

Creating your porcelain veneer will typically take around 2-4 weeks, after which time your third and final appointment will involve bonding that veneers onto your tooth. Your dentist will trim the veneer to ensure a perfect fit during this appointment before securing it using specialist cement. They may also ask you to book another appointment to check on your gums and general placement in a few weeks.


The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Professionally installed porcelain veneers offer many benefits to patients. They are a treatment well worth considering if you’re unhappy with the tooth’s appearance but don’t wish to undergo more invasive procedures. Most notably, porcelain veneers enable you to enjoy –

  • Improved dental appearance
  • Stain resistance
  • A natural finish
  • Strengthening of potentially damaged teeth
  • And more
