Broken, discolored or misshaped teeth can lower your confidence and self-esteem when smiling in public. Porcelain veneers, also known as dental veneers, are designed to improve your smile while maintaining the look and strength of natural teeth.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are used to create natural-looking teeth. They are just as strong and resilient as your natural tooth enamel, and no one can tell they are not real teeth. The wafer-thin porcelain shell is bonded to the front of your teeth, instantly transforming their color, size, shape and length. You can enjoy a perfect smile again!
Porcelain veneers are most commonly used to fix:
- Worn down teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Misaligned, irregularly shaped or uneven teeth
- Gaps in between teeth
What Is The Procedure For Porcelain Veneers?
Before you decide to get porcelain veneers, you will need to schedule a consultation with your dental clinic in Toronto. During the consultation, your teeth will be analyzed and measured to see what type of veneers are best. X-rays may be taken and impressions made of your mouth and teeth so that the veneers can be ordered. Next, your teeth will be prepared for the veneers. About a ½ millimeter of enamel will be removed so that the veneer can be placed on your teeth without making them feel bulky. Your veneers are made in a dental laboratory (which takes one to two weeks), but temporary veneers can be placed until they arrive.
At your final appointment, your veneers will be fitted to make sure they are the right shape and size. Then, they will be permanently bonded. A follow-up appointment may be necessary to check on how the veneers are functioning, how your gums are responding and to make any adjustments that may be necessary.
Porcelain veneers are a great way to restore your smile. Whether you have damaged teeth from an accident or stains that traditional teeth whitening cannot remove, veneers will bring back and enhance your smile.
