Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Denver and Lakewood, Colorado
Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells which get bonded to the front surface of your teeth to give them a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. Due to their versatility and beautiful, long lasting results, porcelain veneers have become one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures available and are regularly included in a smile makeover.
You will experience many benefits from your porcelain veneers treatment. Denver cosmetic dentist, Dr. Scott Greenhalgh can use them to correct a variety of cosmetic issues with your teeth, including:
- Irregular sizing
In particular, Dr. Greenhalgh can use porcelain veneers to achieve dramatic results that closely match the shade and color of your teeth. Furthermore, they are an ideal restoration to correct rotated teeth.
Porcelain veneers are color-stable. In other words, they do not change color. Therefore, they are an ideal option if you have teeth that don’t respond well to tooth whitening or if you have other characteristics on your teeth that look funny after bleaching. For example, fluorosis, a condition caused by over-exposure to fluoride as a child, can create white or brown blotches when you undergo tooth whitening. Porcelain veneers can cover up these blotches so that you have beautiful white teeth.
Dr. Greenhalgh can also design your porcelain veneers to match the color and shade of adjacent natural teeth. The ceramic composition of veneers mimics the translucency of your tooth enamel, giving them a more natural appearance than other restorations.

Porcelain Veneers to Treat Rotated Teeth
Braces are not for everyone. They can be awkward, uncomfortable, and unsightly. If you don’t want to spend the time necessary to straighten your teeth through orthodontics, porcelain veneers may be an ideal solution to your cosmetic goals. They are often referred to as “instant orthodontics” since they create the illusion from the front that your teeth look straight.
In particular, porcelain veneers can achieve dramatic results on rotated teeth which are sitting at a wrong angle, often as much as 90 degrees off from where they should lie. By placing a veneer on the front of your rotated tooth, Dr. Greenhalgh can make your tooth appear straight and beautiful.
