Porcelain veneers explained
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin pieces of porcelain that are custom designed and then permanently bonded to the front of your natural teeth. The veneers are designed to help you achieve the smile you have always wanted while remaining natural-looking. People will notice your smile looks great, but they will not notice you have veneers. Because they are made of porcelain, which is a durable, stain-resistant material, veneers will remain beautiful-looking for many years.
Imperfections porcelain veneers can hide
Porcelain veneers can hide nearly any imperfection that makes you embarrassed about your smile, including:
- Gaps between teeth
- Worn or misshapen teeth
- Permanent discoloration
The porcelain veneers process
Getting your veneers takes place over several dental appointments. Following a consultation where we determine if your teeth are in good enough health for porcelain veneers, we will schedule your first visit. During this appointment, we will prepare your teeth for veneers by removing a small layer of enamel. It allows them to fit naturally on the teeth without sticking out. Impressions are taken and sent to a lab for custom fabrication of your veneers.
Veneers, are thin handcrafted porcelain Shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are as thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing colour. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you?
Once your veneers are ready, you will return for another appointment. We will first check the fit and appearance of them before permanently bonding them to the front of your teeth.
With good oral hygiene and routine dental visits, you can expect your veneers to last a decade or longer. To prevent the veneers from breaking, patients should try not to bite or chew on hard objects.
