A porcelain veneer is a thin ceramic shell designed to conceal imperfections when bonded to the front surface of a tooth. This type of restoration is popular due to its natural appearance and versatility. At Meadows Dental Group, we partner with a high-quality dental lab right here in Denver to craft stunning, customized porcelain veneers.
Many of our Lone Tree patients elect to get several porcelain veneers as part of their cosmetic dentistry treatments. However, there are a few situations where a single porcelain veneer may be appropriate. Our experienced dentists would love to meet with you to determine the optimal number of veneers you will need to achieve a stunning smile!
A Few Reasons to Get One Veneer
A single veneer may be suitable if the cosmetic issue you want to address only impacts one tooth. If you are happy with the overall appearance of your smile, then a single veneer is a great option to fix isolated issues such as:
- A crack, chip, or other form of damage
- Discoloration or staining
- A misshapen tooth
- A tooth that is shorter than neighboring teeth
A single veneer can also be used in conjunction with other cosmetic dentistry services for the greatest benefit. For example, you may choose to have a veneer bonded to a chipped tooth on top of whitening your entire smile.
Our dentists will work with you to develop a plan that suits your unique needs. If you are considering treatment for one tooth, we offer a free limited consultation to assess your candidacy for veneers or another service.
Cosmetic dental issues, even if they only affect one tooth, can take a toll on your self-confidence and affect your willingness to show your smile. At Meadows Dental Group, we can match you with the best treatment for your aesthetic concern. We look forward to helping you love your smile again!
When You Should Consider Several Veneers
A veneer only improves the appearance of the tooth that it’s bonded to. For that reason, cosmetic issues that span multiple teeth typically require multiple veneers. Our dentists will help identify the optimal number of veneers for your concerns, goals, and budget.
You may need more than one porcelain veneer if you have concerns such as:
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Multiple stained or discolored teeth
- Multiple damaged teeth
With proper care, veneers have a lifespan of ten years or more. They are a long-lasting way to transform the appearance of your smile.
