Don’t live in fear of smiling. Our dental veneers restore the look of your smile. They correct minor cosmetic imperfections, from slight misalignments to stains. Our dental veneers are a comfortable, safe, and effective cosmetic dental treatment. Let us restore the look of your teeth so you can smile with confidence again!
What is a Dental Veneer?
A dental veneer is a thin shell, commonly made of porcelain, that’s attached to the front of a tooth. Dental veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment. That means they aren’t used to restore the function of your teeth - they’re simply used to improve the appearance of your existing teeth.
To apply the veneer, your dentist will remove a small amount of tooth enamel. They’ll then take impressions of your tooth, and use those impressions in order to make a veneer that’s perfectly fitted to your tooth.
Your dentist will then use a bonding agent to attach the veneer to your tooth. Our veneers are incredibly comfortable - they look and feel like natural teeth. This means you won’t need to worry about modifying how you eat - your teeth will feel the same or better than they did before the veneers were placed.
When are Porcelain Veneers Helpful?
Porcelain veneers can be used to correct a wide variety of different cosmetic concerns. These concerns include:
- Discoloured teeth
- Crooked or uneven teeth
- Small cracks, chips, and gaps
Porcelain is used throughout dentistry, as it accurately mimics the look and feel of natural teeth. That’s why so many dentists offer porcelain crowns - and why porcelain veneers are so popular.
When your teeth are seriously damaged, we’ll use crowns instead of porcelain veneers. Remember - veneers are cosmetic, not restorative. In circumstances where the structure of the tooth isn’t threatened, and other cosmetic solutions (like teeth whitening) aren’t applicable, porcelain veneers can boost your confidence and keep you smiling.
Dental veneers are incredibly safe. The procedure to place them is relatively non-invasive - no extractions are necessary. For this reason, they’re one of our preferred cosmetic procedures. They’re also relatively inexpensive compared to some other cosmetic procedures.
Our porcelain veneers are also very convenient. They can be applied in one or two visits. They’re simple to care for, as well.
Finally, there are all of the psychological benefits that come from smiling. Many of our patients find they smile much more often when they aren’t self-conscious about their teeth. They're an excellent choice for patients working in people-facing jobs with discoloured teeth, where smiling is a must.
They’re also a great choice for any patient who is worried about minor cosmetic imperfections. From making teeth appear straighter to being stain resistant, veneers do it all. They look just like a natural tooth!
Caring for Porcelain Veneers
One of the biggest advantages of this treatment option is how easy they are to care for. All you need to do is brush and floss your teeth like you normally would - brushing twice a day and flossing once a day. You’ll also want to visit your dentist on a regular basis for cleanings and a check-up - getting a cleaning done every 6 months is perfect for most patients.
There’s only one additional precaution you’ll want to take - avoid chewing on hard objects. That means no chewing on ice and no jawbreakers! We’ll be honest - you shouldn’t be biting on those things anyway.
That’s all you need to do to maintain your veneers!
