Looking for a way to beautify your smile? Dental veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment capable of swiftly transforming damaged and discolored teeth into sparling parts of a beautiful smile.
With dental veneers you can have a sparkling smile for life.
What can dental veneers do for your smile and oral health?
Restore, revitalize, renew your smile with dental veneers. Dental veneers are thin, tailor-shaped pieces of ceramic material designed to be placed over the front of the teeth to mask a variety of dental problems such as:
- Stained teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Gaps between teeth
The most commonly used dental veneer material is porcelain. The ceramic material used in porcelain veneers catches the light in the same way that tooth enamel does, giving a natural, life-like translucency that blends with the rest of your smile.
Besides their significant cosmetic advantages, the following are other characteristics of dental veneers:
- Are stain-resistant
- Require minimal preparation of the original tooth
- Last longer than dental bonding
- Are easy to care for
Beyond covering damaged tooth, dental veneers have several functional benefits, too:
- Improves symmetry of teeth
- Creates a smoother overall arc to your bite
- Makes shorter look more proportionate
- Splint minor teeth cracks
What happens during dental veneer treatment?
A dental veneer procedure can often be performed in two dental visits over the course of six weeks. The visits are extensive and may require several hours of examination and tooth preparation.
Our dental offices at Esteworld Medical Group boasts amenities that offer sedation dentistry and audio/visual distractions to help you relax and comfortable throughout your dental veneers treatment. The diagnostic and examination phase of dental veneer treatment is important and can identify any oral health concerns that must first be treated before veneer placement.
Our cosmetic dentist will also work with you to choose the best tooth colour for you from a special shade chart. Our dental office sports innovative imaging technologies that can provide you with a preview of you expected results.
Before and after images can also allow you to view other successful treatment cases. Dental veneers treatment begins when the examination is done and the customized plan designed.
There are several steps in the dental veneer treatment. First, your dentist will likely apply a local anesthetic so you will feel comfortable during tooth preparation and placement of the veneer.
Your natural tooth is then prepared by minimally redesigning it with a small handheld rotational cutting device to provide the best fit. This device allows for precise and minimal shaping of a tooth prior to veneer placement.
