Have you ever seen a Hollywood star on TV or in a magazine and wondered how they achieved such a perfect smile? It’s likely that they have porcelain veneers! Even though porcelain veneers classify as a ‘cosmetic dentistry procedure’, they can help with much more than just the appearance of your smile.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are a thin piece of material that are custom made to fit each individual tooth to give the appearance of a uniform smile. There are two types of materials that are commonly used for veneers: composite and porcelain.
At The Dental Room, we use porcelain to create our patient’s personalized veneers as they have a transparentness to them that makes them look even more natural. According to the Canadain Dental Association, “porcelain veneers generally last longer than composite resin veneers.” Porcelain veneers are also extremely durable and more stain resistant when compared to composite veneers.
What Problems Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?
Porcelain veneers can help with the appearance of your smile and correct minor dental problems all in one!
You might want to consider porcelain veneers if you have one of the following problems:
Severely discoloured or stained teeth
Teeth that are too small or large
Unwanted or uneven spaces
Worn or chipped teeth
It will take most patients only 2 visits to complete the cosmetic dentistry procedure. On your first visit, one our our dental professionals will take a mold of your teeth and together you can choose the colour for your perfect smile. The second visit is when your dentist will bond your teeth and your new customized veneers. It’s important to keep in mind that porcelain veneers aren’t permanent, however they can last for up to 10 years!
