Porcelain Veneers: A Strong and Natural Choice
If you are looking to change your smile or the shape, size, and/or colour of one or more teeth than porcelain veneers are the way to go.
Veneers are lightweight, and as close to the look and feel of your natural tooth as you can get. In multiple layers, they offer strength and resilience only matched by your natural tooth enamel.
How are Veneers Applied?
The placement of veneers is a very common procedure and most people are comfortable during the procedure.
Here’s what you can expect:
Analysis: Our team will conduct a thorough analysis which will include an understanding of your desired look as well as the viability for your teeth to accept the veneers. X-rays may be needed to determine the overall health of the teeth that will be impacted by the veneers.
Preparation: About a ½-millimeter of enamel is removed from the surface of your tooth to make space for the veneer. Next, a model or impression of your tooth is made and sent to a laboratory where each veneer is customized to fit each tooth.
Bonding: Before the dental veneer is permanently cemented to your tooth, each veneer is temporarily placed on the tooth and adjusted to ensure proper fit and colour matching. The tooth is then prepared by cleaning, polishing, and etching to allow for a strong bond. A special cement is applied to the veneer and it is placed directly on your tooth. Once properly positioned, a special light beam is applied to the veneer, causing it to cure. This is a permanent fix.
Final Touches: Once cured, excess bonding materials are removed, the bite is evaluated, and final adjustments are made if required.
