Brighten Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers or Bonding
Baer Dental - Where we treat people, not teeth.
Porcelain Veneers in Aurora, CO
Baer Dental Designs is proud to offer Porcelain Veneers to residents in the Aurora Colorado area!
They are extremely thin custom designed porcelain or composite pieces, designed to be fitted permanently to the front of your existing/natural teeth. They are used to improve the shape, color and/or cosmetic appearance of your teeth.
Once applied, they won’t stain like your natural teeth. The application is fairly straight forward and can sometimes actually be done with no anesthesia.
If you’ve started to notice that your teeth are looking less than ideal but are still working properly with no decay or other issues that may require more extensive work, porcelain veneers may be the perfect solution for you.
Unlike crowns that require the removal of some of your original teeth, veneers require minimal (fractions of a millimeter) to no tooth removal.
Like many cosmetic dental treatments, veneers are customized for each patient through the use of a custom mold taken at our office.

Direct Cosmetic Bonding
The term Dental Bonding is used when there is an application to the mouth like veneers, crowns, etc. When bonding is used this way, it’s referred to as Adhesive Bonding.
Direct Composite Bonding applications are a way to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing smile without the more extensive procedures used by Porcelain Veneers and/or Dental Crowns.
It is named after its technique of bonding a natural looking mix of resin and adhesive to the existing tooth and curing it with a high-intensity light.
It can be used to improve the color of teeth as well as close up gaps between teeth or sometimes even make them appear longer. It can even be used to protect the tooth’s root when it becomes exposed from gum lines receding.
Direct composite bonding has your dentist use natural looking materials to repair the tooth and reshaping as needed by applying and them sculpting the medium to blend into the area.
It takes little if no preparation or anesthetic unless it’s being used to hide a larger decayed area that’s been cleaned out. Your dentist will match the color of the bonding material to the shade of your existing teeth and then proceed.
Pros and Cons of Dental Bonding Versus Other Cosmetic Restoration
- One of the least expensive of cosmetic dentistry procedures
- Usually completed in one short office visit, unless multiple teeth are involved
- Unlike porcelain veneers and crowns, it often requires no removal of tooth enamel except when larger areas of decay may be present
- Sometimes does not require anesthesia
- Bonding materials are not as strong as your natural teeth so they chip much easier
- Treatment only lasts a few years before repairs are required
- Not as stain resistant as other restorative options
When you come in for a consultation, your dentist will discuss with you what cosmetic procedures will best address both your dental health and cosmetic concerns.
Whether you end up with a simple bonding procedure or a full set of beautiful porcelain veneers, you can be assured that your questions and concerns will be addressed every step of the way.
