Cosmetic dentistry can improve your smile, though the results can take months or even years through orthodontics, or may involve invasive procedures with dental implants. For those looking to enhance their smile without the pain or wait of implants and orthodontics, dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers) may be an option for those who are good candidates.
Are Dental Veneers Right For You?
Your dentist will let you know whether dental veneers are a good option to restore your smile. Those who grind or clench their teeth (known as bruxism) may cause damage to dental veneers, leading to chipping and breaking of the veneer and even the tooth beneath. Likewise, those who have little enamel or large portions of their tooth missing may also not be good candidates for dental veneers as it may be more difficult to bond the dental veneer to the surface of the tooth. In these cases, your dental team may suggest alternative treatment to dental veneers to achieve your perfect smile.
The Process of Acquiring Veneers
Prior to your first appointment, a dental check-up and cleaning may be recommended to ensure your overall oral health. Any general dentistry concerns, such as cavities, will need to be treated prior to proceeding with dental veneers. Once the veneers have been installed they will need daily brushing and flossing, just like your real teeth.
Veneers are porcelain facings that are bonded to front surfaces of your teeth to perfect the shape, size, and colour of your teeth. Veneers can also be used to close gaps between teeth, smooth rough surfaces, repair chips, change the shape of an uneven smile and a solution for those stains that never go away.
Dental Veneers Replacement
A chipped or broken dental veneer will need to be treated as soon as possible; not only will the veneer need to be replaced, but the tooth underneath will need to be assessed for damage and repaired if necessary.
At our first appointment and consultation, we will discuss the best way to rejuvenate your smile and what the best shape and shade of veneers would be for you. During the next appointment, we will prep the teeth and take an impression so the veneers can be perfected for your aesthetics and function. During our last veneer appointment, they are presented to you and fitted on to your teeth. The result feels and looks natural and will make your smile better than ever.
