Conceal Cosmetic Concerns with Porcelain Veneers
If you are concerned about cosmetic imperfections in your smile such as chips, gaps, and discoloration, porcelain veneers may be a good option for you. At their office in Aurora, CO, Dr. Hua Gao and Dr. Xiaomei Sui offer both traditional and minimal prep veneers for patients who desire a subtle, minimally invasive treatment. Each veneer is custom-crafted to match the shade and texture of your surrounding teeth and blend seamlessly with your smile.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that cover the front of your teeth to conceal cosmetic concerns such as severe discoloration, cracks, chips, and minor gaps. Veneers are one of the many cosmetic treatment options we offer. The procedure is an especially popular treatment for patients because of the comprehensive benefits. Instead of addressing a single cosmetic imperfection, porcelain veneers can restore proportion, color, and symmetry to your smile all in one treatment.
Your Initial Consultation
During your initial consultation, our doctors will evaluate the health of your smile and discuss your cosmetic treatment options with you. We can provide previews of what your smile can look like after you receive veneers. If you are receiving veneers for multiple teeth, we can provide a wax-up to help you "try on" your new smile prior to the placement of your veneers.
How Are Veneers Placed?
Once your veneers are fabricated by the lab ceramists, you will return to our office for placement. Our doctors prefer conservative preparation techniques that result in the least amount of enamel removal. The procedure is not painful, although some patients experience minor sensitivity following removal of the enamel.

Our doctors will make adjustments to the veneer as necessary, to ensure it matches the desired length and fit. Then, we will use a cement to secure the veneer in place. Placing veneers does not require the use of sedation or surgery. Therefore, patients can return to their daily routine and enjoy their newly enhanced smile almost immediately.
Minimal Prep vs. Traditional
Our office works with a variety of brands and manufacturers to give you the most options when it comes to your veneers. If your cosmetic imperfections require fewer levels of porcelain to conceal, we may be able to place minimal prep veneers. Unlike traditional veneers, this less invasive option does not require removal of your tooth enamel. We also offer chair-side resin veneers, also known as dental bonding, for a cost-effective alternative to veneers.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are crafted from high-quality porcelain that reflects light similarly to your surrounding teeth. The porcelain used to make veneers is also stain-resistant, which means you can enjoy a brighter smile without worrying about whitening treatments or avoiding color-rich foods. While veneers are impervious to stains, your surrounding teeth will still be subject to discoloration.

Porcelain veneers can transform your smile in one simple, comprehensive treatment.
