What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are thin, durable shells that are placed on top of teeth to conceal dental imperfections. Typically crafted from ceramic or porcelain, veneers can cover up one cracked tooth, multiple teeth or transform your entire smile. Although veneer treatment is considered irreversible, you can rely on veneers to boost the appearance of your smile for over a decade with proper care.

You should consider getting veneers if you are bothered by:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Misaligned or misshapen teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Gaps in between teeth
  • Smaller than average teeth

The Process of Getting Veneers

Veneer treatment is typically completed in just two easy trips to our office. Here is what you can expect when getting veneers from an experienced cosmetic dentist in Denver like Dr. Walker or Dr. Pooler: 

  • Consultation: Everyone’s teeth are different. During an initial consultation, we will discuss your unique smile goals and the dental imperfections you would like to address.
  • Preparation: Next, we will prepare your teeth for veneers by removing an extremely thin layer of enamel. This ensures that veneers will have enough space to fit comfortably and naturally in your mouth.
  • Impressions: After preparing your teeth, we will take impressions and determine the right shade of color for your veneers.
  • Veneer Creation: The impressions of your teeth will be sent to a dental lab, where experienced technicians will craft your custom veneers. We will give you temporary veneers to protect your teeth until your permanent ones are ready.
  • Veneer Placement: After a few short weeks, we will welcome you back for the veneer placement procedure. We will remove your temporary veneers, check that your permanent veneers fit properly, and then secure them to your teeth using a bonding cement and special curing light.

The Benefits of Veneers

Denver residents frequently choose veneers over other cosmetic treatments due to their many benefits, such as:

  • Natural Appearance – Veneers are custom-made to match each patient’s unique smile. They have the same translucent appearance as enamel, allowing them to blend in with surrounding teeth.
  • Brighter Smile – Veneers are more resistant to staining than natural enamel. You can achieve a brighter smile that will last longer by undergoing veneer treatment.
  • Immediate Results – No need to go home and rest after getting veneers. Instead, you can carry on with your day and start showing off your new smile as soon as the placement procedure is complete.
  • Long-Term Solution – With proper care, veneers can easily last 10 to 15 years!

Understanding the Cost of Veneers

Even if you want treatment, perhaps you’re worried about the cost of veneers. Fair enough – the shells won’t help when they exceed your budget. Still, there’s no real cause for alarm; our dentists will walk you through the financing process. More specifically, they’ll help you review our cosmetic services and payment options. Doing so ensures you’ll receive affordable care that transforms your smile! If you’d like to learn more, just keep reading or call us for details.

Cost vs. Cosmetic Dentistry: What’s Right for Me?

We at Pearl Dentistry provide excellent veneers, but you should also consider our other cosmetic services. After all, each of these procedures has a distinct price and effect. It’s thus wise to compare them before deciding anything. To that end, our cosmetic options are the following:


  • Gum Recontouring – Used to fix so-called “gummy smiles,” gum recontouring removes excess gum tissue from your mouth. The result is that your grin looks balanced and pleasing, even as treatment costs little and offers permanent results. Still, recovering from this treatment can take days or weeks.
  • Cosmetic Bonding – By applying tooth-colored resin to your smile, cosmetic bonding hides minor dental flaws – tooth stains, chips, etc. Better yet, it does so cheaply and quickly! In exchange, though, bonding results are short-lived; they usually need frequent touch-ups.
  • Teeth Whitening – Teeth whitening, per its name, brightens your smile. More specifically, it uses a special bleaching gel to remove stains from your enamel quickly. All that said, this option has a moderate price and only affects tooth color.
  • All-Ceramic Crowns – Also known as tooth-colored crowns, this treatment protects decayed teeth and helps them look better. Furthermore, its ceramic materials are biocompatible and gentler on your mouth than metal. Notably, however, ceramic crowns can get a bit pricey.
  • Porcelain Veneers – Veneers are thin, porcelain shells placed on the fronts of teeth. Their main function is to hide various smile flaws – chips, cracks, stains, dental misalignment, etc. Given such versatility, the shells are usually rather expensive.


How to Make Veneers Affordable

In truth, veneers usually aren’t covered by dental insurance. Most policies consider the shells cosmetic and thus “medically unnecessary.” As such, you shouldn’t count on a plan to help with the veneers’ cost. Some policies, though, will cover veneers in special cases, so confirm your benefits before pursuing treatment. Our office will happily assist if you need help with that step.


Thankfully, insurance isn’t the only way to make veneers affordable. Many dental practices offer helpful payment options for their patients. Our own Pearl Dentistry, for instance, provides flexible financing through CareCredit. This method lets you pay for care in monthly installments. That way, you could cover the cost of veneers gradually.


As you can see, Pearl Dentistry can transform your smile in budget-friendly ways. Therefore, book a consultation with us – we’d love to hear from you!

Veneer FAQs

At Pearl Dentistry, questions are always encouraged! Whether you want to learn more about the treatment process or how to maintain your results, we’re always here to help. If you can’t get to the phone or you’re not quite ready to schedule a consultation, don’t worry – we’ve answered some FAQs about veneers right here.

Is There Anyone Who Shouldn’t Get Veneers?

In the first section of this page, we shared the reasons patients often consider veneers, such as to fix chipped or misshapen teeth. But is there anyone who isn’t a candidate? The short answer is “yes” – at least initially. As you can imagine, veneers would look odd against inflamed, red, or bleeding gums, which is one of the many reasons patients with gum disease are encouraged to get the necessary restorative care first. On a similar note, veneers may not be the ideal treatment if you’re looking to address moderate to severe cases of malocclusion.

Will I Still Be Able to Drink Coffee with Veneers?

While many patients are concerned that they won’t be able to drink coffee with veneers, they are actually crafted from stain-resistant materials. In other words, you can drink as much of this caffeinated beverage as you’d like! Of course, it’s still ideal to use a straw, especially since the teeth that haven’t been treated are still vulnerable to discoloration.

Do Veneers Give You a Lisp?

It’s a common concern that patients have. However, it’s very rare for patients to experience changes to their speaking patterns. That’s mainly because veneers are attached to the front-facing surfaces of your teeth, not the back (which is where your tongue makes distinct movements to form words). With all of that said, if you do experience any slight changes to your speech, you can rest assured that they are temporary. Your mouth will adjust quickly since the veneers are incredibly thin, ensuring that the learning curve is quick.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

Generally, veneers last for 10-20 years. This is based off of two studies, one by Layton and the other by Beier. In both, well over 90% lasted 10 years. Plus, the large majority lasted 20 years. Of course, the longevity of yours rests heavily on maintenance, such as brushing and flossing consistently. If you ever have any questions about how to keep your veneers (and your teeth) in good condition, don’t hesitate to talk to our team.

Is There Anything I Can’t Eat with Veneers?

In the short-term, yes. While you have your temporary veneers, you’ll be asked to stick to soft foods, like smoothies and soups. Naturally, that will no longer be the case once we bond your permanent ones in place. Even then, however, it’s a good idea to exercise caution with extremely crunchy foods and to keep your intake of added sugar to a minimum.
