I absolutely love this office and all the people that work here! I have been seeing them for cleanings for a few years, but today - when I chipped a huge chunk off my front tooth - I was blown away by how amazing my dentist is! I had called while they were out for lunch, but the receptionist called back right after and got me scheduled for about 3 days out. I was okay with that and went on with my day. A little while later though, Dr. Gillette found out I had chipped my front tooth and personally called me to see if I wanted to come in today. I told him I could be there in 20 mins. He got me in and taken care of and I’m able to sleep tonight without being stressed out! Love this whole team! ♥️

The Cost of Porcelain Veneers

Our stunning porcelain veneers cost about $1,183 on average per tooth. Because it is a purely cosmetic treatment, veneers do not qualify for insurance coverage. However, our Arvada dental practice offers deferred interest and no-fee financing options such as CareCredit® to help keep your costs more manageable. You can ask our team about financing during your consultation to learn more about your options.

Initial Consultation

Dr. Gillette will first examine your teeth and gums to determine if you qualify for treatment. At this time we encourage you to discuss your dental insecurities and the goals you have for your smile. After listening to your concerns, Dr. Gillette will design a personalized treatment plan to address your needs.

Tooth Preparation

Next, your dentist will prepare your teeth for treatment.  Dr. Gillette will gently remove a small layer of enamel and buff the front surface of the tooth to create a bond-enhancing texture. 

Dental Impressions

Once your teeth have been prepared, we can take precise impressions of your smile to design your veneers.  These are sent to our dental lab where specially trained ceramicists hand-craft the porcelain or IPS e.max restorations. Our veneers are custom-stained for a natural appearance. 

Temporary Restorations

Because it takes about one to two weeks to craft your final restorations, we will provide temporary veneers to protect your teeth in the meantime.

Permanent Veneers

When we receive your restorations we will schedule you for another office visit to place the final veneers. A special resin that is cured under UV light is used to attach the porcelain shell to the front surface of each treated tooth. Once they are set, your dentist will make any necessary adjustments to perfect the final results. 

Are Veneers Right For Me?
Candidacy and Considerations

Dental veneers work for most patients with good oral health and a commitment to dental hygiene. However, there are some important factors to take into consideration before you decide on getting veneers.

Bruxism

If you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding) we may recommend an alternative treatment, like dental crowns. Veneers are incredibly thin and can get damaged if you frequently grind your teeth.

Type of Cosmetic Flaw

Dental veneers work best for minor to moderate cosmetic flaws and may not be the best solution for widespread misalignment. If crooked teeth are your primary concern you may do better with clear aligners

Long-Term Goals

Dental veneers require making permanent alterations to your enamel and will need to be replaced every 10 years or so. If you are looking for something more temporary, you may be a better candidate for composite resin (dental bonding), which can be reversed without harming a tooth.

What If I Need More Than Just Veneers? We Offer Custom Smile Makeovers

Sometimes one treatment is just not enough to achieve all of your smile goals. When this is the case, Dr. Gillette can combine multiple forms of dentistry into a comprehensive smile makeover. A smile makeover is a custom treatment plan that addresses all the imperfections in your teeth and gums.  Depending on your needs we can combine veneers, crowns, teeth whitening, gum contouring, and more to create the smile of your dreams. Contact our Arvada practice today to find out what we can do for you.

What an amazing change! Imagine getting the care you actually NEED instead of being told you need some expensive and time sucking proceedure. I am a health care provider, I value good trustworthy care above all else. At Ward Road Dental I was not only given great care I was "cared about." I mattered!

Maintaining Your Results

While veneers are highly durable, they are still vulnerable to the same types of damage as your natural teeth and should be treated with care. To ensure your results last as long as possible, we recommend taking a few simple precautions.

  • Avoid chewing on ice cubes, pens, pencils, and other hard objects that can crack the porcelain.
  • If you are prone to grinding your teeth at night, consider wearing a mouth guard to prevent unnecessary wear.
  • If your veneers do become damaged, schedule an appointment at our Arvada practice as soon as possible. It may be possible to repair the damage before it gets worse. 


Please sent us a message if you have any questions or concerns. A member of our team will be happy to assist you in any way possible.
