The Benefits of Getting Porcelain Veneers

As a conservative dental approach to cover teeth imperfections and fill in the gaps, porcelain veneers are an ideal choice because

  • Very little, if any, of the actual tooth enamel is removed
  • They provide a natural-looking alternative that is less expensive and more conservative than crowns
  • They are strong and stain-resistant
  • With proper care, they can last 10-15 years
  • The procedure produces very little pain or discomfort

Going this route is not only aesthetically pleasing but functional because they protect your damaged teeth. Having veneers may also save you time and money and eliminate the need for more invasive treatment, as long as you are a good candidate for veneers.

FAQs

What are porcelain veneers?

We like to describe them as custom-fitted “shells” that are applied and bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth in your “smile zone.” They are used to cosmetically correct teeth that are crooked or misshapen or to cover up gaps, stains and chips in your teeth.

What is the treatment process like?

To create a custom, natural fit, the doctor starts by meeting with you to determine the “look” you’d like to achieve while checking the appropriateness of your teeth and obtaining the best colour matches.

Next, the doctor lightly sands the enamel on the teeth to maintain the same tooth thickness. Then, we take an impression of your teeth so the veneers can be shaped for a perfect fit, with the correct color and shape. While your new “teeth” are being made, we may place temporary veneers on your teeth until the permanent ones are ready.

At the next visit, we will have you approve the colour and shape prior to cementing them. Your teeth will be cleaned with a mild acidic solution and then a tooth-coloured bonding adhesive is applied along with the veneers to cement them into place. Then the veneers are buffed to blend in with your other teeth. And voila! A new smile! A happy face!

How do I know if I’m a candidate?

There are a few contraindications for this treatment. For example, they are not recommended for people who grind their teeth at night. That’s because your veneers would be quickly damaged by the grinding. The only way to find out for certain if they are suitable for you is to book in for a consultation with our experienced dental team.
