Considering Cosmetic Dentistry? You Could be a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers!

If you find yourself looking in the mirror and feeling dissatisfied with your smile, you should know that you are not without options. Thousands of people have corrected minor imperfections and even major issues with their teeth via cosmetic dentistry. One popular procedure is that of porcelain veneers.

What are Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells that have the same colour as a natural tooth and are designed to cover the front surface of your existing teeth. They improve the appearance and brightness of your existing smile and are bonded to your teeth.

Can Porcelain Veneers Help My Smile?

Veneers are used to fix cosmetic issues with teeth. Some issues that can be repaired using veneers include:

  • Discoloured teeth
  • Teeth that have been worn down
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Misaligned, irregularly shaped or uneven teeth
  • Gaps
  • Craters or bulges in the teeth

Veneers are an ideal choice for dramatic changes to your smile. Most patients opt for them because:

  • They offer a natural tooth-like appearance
  • They do not irritate gum tissue
  • They change the colour and shape of your teeth
  • They are stain-resistant

The Process of Veneers

Dental veneers are not a one-stop process. Instead, they include multiple steps that will be performed at your dental clinic in Scarborough. These steps include:

 

  1. A woman with a bright smileDetermining CandidacyNot all teeth are candidates. Your dentist will need to assess your teeth, determine what results you are trying to achieve and then decide if veneers are the right cosmetic procedure. They will need to take x-rays and possibly dental impressions. Your impressions are sent to an outside lab to create the veneers, which may take anywhere from one to two weeks.
  2. Preparing the Teeth At one appointment, your teeth will be prepared to accept the veneer. This is done by removing a ½ millimetre of your tooth’s enamel from the front surface. This is about the equivalent thickness of the veneer, so your teeth are not bulging once they are bonded in place.
  3. Temporary Bonding Before permanently bonding, your dentist will temporarily place the veneer on your tooth to assess colour and positioning. Adjustments may have to be made.
  4. Cleaning and Polishing Your existing tooth will be polished and etched to help the bonding cement adhere to the surface.
  5. Bonding The dental cement is placed on the back side of the veneer and then the veneer is placed on the front of your tooth. Once in position, your dentist will use a special light to activate the bonding chemicals inside the dental cement. This helps the cement cure faster.

If you are eager to opt for cosmetic dentistry and improve your smile, visit Dr. Cyrus today. He can assess your needs and determine if porcelain veneers are the right choice.

Cosmetic Dentistry: Looking Back and Going Forward for a Perfect Smile

 

Cosmetic dentistry in Scarborough and across the world has felt the impact of new technology and evolving beauty standards. Here is a brief recap of how we got to where we are today and an overview of the new trends in cosmetic dentistry that are changing the face of patients and the industry:

  • Past: Health and preventative treatment were the top priorities when dentistry developed, but soon techniques for a more aesthetic and even smile were explored. Interest in a better-looking smile has been dated back as far as the Etruscans in 700 BC, but advancements really occurred during the Enlightenment in the 1700s when porcelain was used to replace missing teeth and make moulds. Modern techniques really kicked off at the beginning of the 20th century as porcelain was replaced by plastics and acrylics.
  • Present: Many new advancements define the field of cosmetic dentistry. Whitening agents for a brighter smile began emerging in the 1950s, and dental veneers were introduced in the 1930s. Fillings and bondings have also become common practice and implants are a routine procedure for many cosmetic dentists.
  • Future: Digital imaging devices will make cosmetic procedures increasingly more precise, customized, and faster to administer. While they are expensive today, cosmetic dentistry will likely become increasingly affordable in coming years. More and more people will turn to cosmetic dentists for treatment that combines low maintenance oral health with a pleasing appearance and a ‘perfect’ smile. Reshaping, sizing, whitening, straightening, and alignment will remain the key factors, but new tools will make altering these aspects less invasive and more impactful than before.
