A New Smile with Dental Veneers in Winnipeg
Many people choose to come to East Kildonan Dental because they are unhappy with the way their smile looks and feels. Each tooth tells a unique story, but you may not be happy with the tale that yours are telling. Perhaps you are tired of hiding your smile behind closed lips. It may be time to consider coming to our experienced dentists to discuss the possibility of dental veneers.
Who Can Benefit from Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers can help to cover up a wide range of problems with your teeth. If you have any of the following issues with your smile, then you might be an ideal candidate for this cosmetic treatment:
- Chipped teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Stained teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Naturally misshaped teeth from birth
The goal is to improve the overall appearance of your smile. Many people can benefit from this type of procedure if they have primarily, only cosmetic concerns with their teeth.
For example, veneers are highly effective at treating stained teeth when the tooth whitening process is not possible. Stains can come from a variety of sources including regular consumption of coffee or wine, smoking, acidic foods and even from taking certain types of medications or medical conditions. Regardless of where the discoloration comes from, our office can help you to visually eliminate years of damage.
While dental veneers may not be able to correct a crooked smile, they can provide some coverage for gapped teeth. The porcelain veneers can be custom-made to cover the gap between two teeth seamlessly.
How Do Dental Veneers Work?
Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or composite resin. These veneers are essentially caps that are designed to cover the front of the tooth. They can be very thin and are custom-coloured in order to blend in with the rest of your teeth. They may be made a few shades lighter as well in the case of colour correction for stained teeth.
To begin, your dentist will potentially need to remove a small layer of tooth structure and then take a digital scan or a mold of the tooth or teeth that require veneers. The mold may be sent away to a lab that creates veneers specifically for your smile. If this is the case, you will have to schedule a follow-up appointment in order to have your veneers placed. Alternatively, composite resin veneers can often be prepared right in the office. Talk to your dentist to discuss which option is best for you and your smile.
Your new porcelain veneers will be placed during your next visit. The dentist will ensure proper bonding during the procedure. Once you get home, you can treat your new veneers just like normal teeth. You can brush and floss them and eat all your favorite foods. They are extremely durable and are more resistant to staining than natural teeth.
