If you have always dreamed of a perfect smile, porcelain veneers may the treatment to help you achieve your goal! Our patients love the way veneers improve their appearance. Not only are they attractive, but they are also durable and long-lasting, when cared for properly.
Porcelain is a strong, slightly translucent material that closely resembles the appearance of your natural tooth enamel. We custom design porcelain veneers to match your facial structure, gender, skin tone, and age. Everyone’s teeth look slightly different and a natural appearance is important to many of our patients!
We will take time to discuss your goals for your smile so that you are pleased with the end result.
One of the great things about porcelain veneers is that they are so versatile.
Veneers offer many solutions, including:
If you have severely worn teeth from a clenching or grinding habit or if you have a damaged smile due to an accident, porcelain veneers can restore the length and appearance of your teeth while reducing sensitivity that is common with the loss of enamel.
Before we proceed with any treatment, it’s important for you to have a dental exam. We need to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy so we can determine whether porcelain veneers are the best choice for you.
If porcelain veneers are right for you, we start by removing a small bit of tooth enamel so the veneers will fit your teeth properly. We take impressions and help you choose the right shade for your finished veneers. The impressions are sent to our dental lab where your veneers are custom-made according to our specifications, with special attention to comfort and function. Sometimes we arrange for you to visit our local dental technician so they can look at your teeth for advanced characterisation.
When your veneers are finished, you can return to our office and we will bond the veneers securely to the front surface of your teeth. Once they are in place, we make any final adjustments to ensure a good fit.
With regular dental visits and proper care, your veneers can keep your smile beautiful for many years. You should follow your dentist’s recommendation for a dental hygiene schedule and make sure that you practise diligent oral care at home.
