Could Your Colorado Springs Smile Do With a Few Porcelain Veneers?

September 17, 2014

Filed under: Porcelain Veneers,Uncategorized,Veneers — admin @ 5:28 pm

Porcelain veneers are designed to cover and conceal the front surfaces of teeth that are stained, chipped, or exhibit a host of other cosmetic blemishes. Made from highly-advanced dental porcelain that closely resembles healthy, natural tooth structure, veneers may be the answer to drastically improving your smile without extensive or multiple cosmetic procedures.

They offer a near-total smile transformation with minimal preparation.

A Look at What Veneers Can Do

Because the restorations are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth, porcelain veneers offer a wider range of benefits than most other cosmetic options. Usually, veneers are recommended if a patient’s teeth are:

  • severely stained or discolored
  • chipped or slightly cracked
  • shorter than surrounding teeth
  • slightly crooked or misshapen
  • spaced too far from an adjacent tooth

Find Out if Veneers are Right for You

If you’d like to know whether veneers are right for you, then schedule a visit as soon as possible for a personal, comprehensive consultation and examination.  Call the office of Dr. Ken Gasper of Aesthetic Dentistry by Design at 719-599-0700.

Three Ways Your Smile Is Aging You

April 2, 2013

Filed under: Porcelain Veneers,Teeth Whitening,Veneers — admin @ 9:24 am

New Beauty posted an article on how to treat the issues that cause your smile to age you.

From the article:

One of the first things people notice, the smile does more than make a first impression. It affects the overall appearance of your face. Think about it: your smile is front and center on your face and acts as the underlying structure for the lower third of it. Poor shade, shape or structure of the smile can add 10 years or more to your look. Thankfully, you and your dentist can identify and treat all of these issues.

When you think of anti-aging treatments, your first thought may not be your teeth, but perhaps it should be.

1. Dingy color makes the smile appear dull. If your teeth aren’t the right shade of white, they may be negatively impacting your look, making your face and your smile look older than they really are.

Dr. Gasper of Aesthetic Dentistry By Design provides a couple of teeth whitening options including Zoom Teeth Whitening and Deep Bleaching. Learn more.

2. Poor teeth shape can age your face. Unhappy with the way your smile looks but having trouble figuring out why? Take a closer look at the shape of your teeth.  They could be affecting your smile and even aging you. The good news is if the shape of your teeth doesn’t suit you there are ways to correct it. Blunt edges, short front teeth and chips and cracks can all contribute to an aged smile.

Dr. Gasper of Aesthetic Dentistry by Design offers veneers and crowns that can help achieve a younger smile.

3. A lack of support can also add years to your smile. Much more than just improving the smile, the structure and support of your teeth and jaw can improve the look of your face. A good foundation on the lower face is key in maintaining a youthful and sexier look while a “lack of support can cause a “caved in” look.

Veneers or crowns can help create a cheekbone effect, restore facial symmetry and build out lip contour.

Porcelain Veneers – Easy Path to a New Smile

March 27, 2013

Filed under: Porcelain Veneers,Uncategorized,Veneers — admin @ 9:14 am

If you want a dramatic change in terms of your smile, go with porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers (aka dental veneers or porcelain laminates) are customized shells or fronts of tooth-like material that are cemented to the fronts of teeth in order to improve and change the shape, color, size and length of each individual tooth.

Dental veneers may be a good choice for you if you are unhappy with severely discolored teeth, chipped, broken or worn down teeth, teeth that are uneven, mal-aligned or irregularly shaped, or have significant gaps between them.

Veneers will  provide a natural gorgeous smile, the teeth become stain resistant, can close unsightly gaps and they can provide whiter better shaped teeth fairly quickly and relatively permanently.
