What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain dental veneers are custom-made thin porcelain shells or caps that are placed on the front of the teeth to improve the appearance and strength. Veneers can correct a wide range of common concerns and alter the size, shape, colour, and length of the teeth they cover. The shells are permanently bonded to the teeth, creating a strong and lasting outcome. Porcelain veneers can be placed on one or several teeth, as needed, to achieve the desired effect.
What Concerns Can Porcelain Veneers Treat?
Some of the many benefits of dental veneers include improving the beauty and strength of the teeth. Other common advantages include:
- Improved appearance of worn down, “short”, uneven, or irregular teeth
- Correction of gaps, chips, misalignment, and spaces
- Minimal downtime following the procedure
- Increased structural support of weakened or cracked teeth
- Natural-looking results and comfortable fit
- Rejuvenated appearance of other restorations (such as with the use of dental crowns and bridges for structurally-compromised teeth)
- Increased resistance to stains and yellowing
What Should I Expect During the Porcelain Veneers Procedure?
Your comfort and results are our highest priorities, which is why we will make every effort to ensure your experience is as pleasant as possible. During the procedure, the teeth that will be treated will be prepared and shaped by removing a wafer-thin layer of enamel. This reduces bulkiness when the veneers are applied and provides the most natural-looking outcome. It is the goal of our cosmetic dentists to remove as little existing natural tooth as possible while providing an excellent result. The caps will then be customized to your cosmetic preferences and anatomic needs and bonded to your teeth using the latest in technology.
To help you feel more comfortable during this process, we offer light dental sedation for patients who experience anxiety. We are happy to explain all of your options during your initial consultation.
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?
The porcelain veneers we use in our practice are designed to be durable and survive the rigours of day-to-day life. That said, it’s important to take good care of your teeth to ensure the veneers last as long as they can. Proper oral hygiene, including brushing twice a day and flossing once, and regular dental check-ups can aid in a long-lasting result. Many patients who follow these guidelines enjoy their dental veneers for decades, although research indicates the average life of porcelain veneers ranges from 10-15 years. We will provide tips and tricks to keep your smile looking gorgeous for life.
