Will I Like My Smile?

We Collaborate Closely To Ensure
You Are Thrilled With Your Smile

Dr. Bauer at Bear Creek Family Dental in Lakewood has more than a decade of experience in helping patients transform their smiles.

He starts by creating a highly precise wax-up of your mouth so you can see what your veneers will look like and share your thoughts on the design. You and Dr. Bauer will go over how many veneers you would like. Sometimes all it takes is a veneer on one tooth to balance out your smile. Other people may need 8 to 10 veneers to achieve their desired results.

Based on your input Dr. Bauer will create temporary veneers that you can "test drive" before deciding on the final veneer profile.

There's still time at this point to change your mind about the look of your veneers. Some patients may decide they would like a different shape to the teeth or a different length. Others may want to change the color. We'll work with you to ensure the end result gives you the smile you've been dreaming of.

Real-World Techniques For a Perfect Smile


Our practice uses traditional impressions and wax-up models to achieve a "real-world" result. Digital imaging is a powerful tool, but pictures simulating your new smile can't beat the benefits of a real, physical model. Our traditional wax-up models create designs that work, and allow our patients a true view of their new smile before committing to their final veneers.

Our Patients Rave About Dr. Bauer's Work

Dr. Baur was my dentist for nearly 20 years when he retired. I was so worried the new dentist, his nephew, Dr. Baur, wouldn't be nearly as great as the original Dr. Baur. But he is. He is awesome. For someone who is inherently nervous about dental work, he is kind, gentle and understanding. Also, talented. Trust this office. Good people, doing good work.

Curious About the Veneers Placement Process? Take a Closer Look...

Once your skilled cosmetic dentist has prepared your tooth for the veneer procedure, your customized porcelain dental veneer will literally fit right over it, concealing visible imperfections. Dr. Bauer can usually complete the entire veneer placement process in just two visits to his Lakewood, CO, office, whether you have only one flawed tooth or several teeth that need improving.

Ready to Transform Your Smile with Veneers? Here's Why Dr. Bauer is the Dentist for You

With nearly a decade of top-level cosmetic dentistry experience, Dr. Bauer is definitely the right choice for designing and placing your smile-enhancing veneers. He can even create a 3-D wax model of your teeth to show you what your new smile will look like. Plus, our practice only uses the highest quality medical-grade dental ceramics which are known for their strength and ability to match the color and unique shine of natural teeth. 

How Are Veneers Placed on My Teeth?

Now it's time to show off your new, A-list smile!

Two Appointments

Now it's time to show off your new, A-list smile!

1st Appointment

A very small amount of enamel will be removed from each affected tooth's surface. This procedure is virtually painless but anesthetic is available for your comfort. Then a precise impression will be made of your teeth, which will be sent to our high-end partner lab for crafting by dental artisans.

2nd Appointment

Your customized veneers should arrive at our office in three weeks or less. After inspecting them for fit and color, Dr. Bauer will bond them to your teeth, instantly concealing visible dental imperfections. Now it's time to show off your new, A-list smile!

Ready to Get Started?

Do I Qualify for Veneers?

Yes, if our dentist determines that you:

Have Sufficient Enamel

Typically, some of the enamel must be removed to make room for your porcelain veneers. As such, it is important that you do not have especially worn or thin enamel.

Do Not Grind Your Teeth

If you suffer from bruxism, you will need to wear a mouthguard while sleeping because the clenching and grinding can otherwise place excessive pressure on your veneers and crack the porcelain.

Only Have Minor Misalignment

While veneers can be used to conceal some instances of crooked or overlapping teeth, they are only recommended in minor cases. Severe misalignment will typically require orthodontic treatment.

Are Ready for a Commitment

Since enamel is removed during treatment, you will need to continue to replace veneers over your lifetime or receive dental crowns. You should understand the financial and time commitment they will require.

Have Good Oral Health

Our patients with decayed teeth, major misalignments, or gum disease may need these issues treated before veneers can be placed. 

How Much Do Veneers Cost?  

​Dr. Bauer charges between $1,300 to $1,800 per tooth, depending on the material used to create your veneers and other factors. But think of it this way — you are making a long-term investment in your smile. This can boost your confidence and change your life in many priceless ways. For exact costs, contact our Lakewood practice for a friendly consultation today.

Is It Time to Put Yourself First? Request a Consultation

A beautiful smile is priceless. Smiles lift your spirits and make those around you feel better too. Dr. Bauer can give you the natural-looking, symmetrical smile that you've been waiting to share. It all starts with proper planning.

At your consultation at our Lakewood dentist's office, Dr. Bauer will take the time to learn what you dislike about your smile and what you want to change.

  • Does your smile lack symmetry?
  • Are your teeth too short?
  • Are your teeth the wrong shape?
  • Does your lip line sit too low?

Our dentist can take these and other factors into consideration as he designs your veneers. Then, in a few short weeks you'll have the smile you desire, tailored to your wishes.

Haven't You Waited Long Enough?

Be the Best Version of Yourself


Veneers can also be designed to subtly transform your face, slightly plumping your lips or adjusting where your lip sits. By adding fullness, veneers can also help eliminate fine lines around the mouth and ease the signs of aging.
