What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dental procedure designed to improve the appearance of the smile. Each veneer is applied to the front-facing surface of the affected tooth to enhance its strength and form. The tooth is usually prepared by removing a thin layer of enamel, so this treatment is considered to be permanent. Veneers can be placed on one, several, or all of the visible teeth, depending on the patient’s needs and goals.
What Happens During The Porcelain Veneer Process?
Your comfort during this process is of the utmost importance to us, and we will customize the procedure to suit your unique needs and goals. We offer a complimentary consultation with our skilled dental professionals to discuss the steps involved, answer questions, and address any concerns you may have. Our team will also take digital photographs of your teeth and discuss how the treatment can help you achieve your dream smile.
Once you are ready to begin the process, our dentist will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from them. This makes room for the veneers which are matched to the shape, color, and translucency of your existing teeth to provide the most natural-looking and proportional outcome possible. Our team then takes a digital impression of your prepared teeth so the veneers can be fabricated for your smile. While the permanent veneers are fabricated, our dentist will design temporary veneers tailored to your specifications.
At your next appointment, the permanent veneers are attached to your teeth and adjusted to make them as comfortable as possible. We will also provide you with handy hints to ensure your veneers last a long time.
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?
Porcelain Veneers generally last between ten to fifteen years with good care. Maintaining good oral hygiene habits by brushing and flossing along with attending regular dental cleaning appointments will allow you to enjoy your veneers for years to come.
What are Alternatives to Porcelain Veneers?
If porcelain veneers are not ideal for your needs and goals, there are several other treatment options that could help enhance your smile. Teeth Whitening, Invisible Braces (Invisalign), Cosmetic Bonded Fillings and other advanced procedures can provide many of the same benefits and may be more affordable or appropriate for you. We will be happy to go over all your options so you can make the best choice to achieve your dream smile.
Frequently Asked Questions About Porcelain Veneers
We want you to have as much information as you need to make an informed decision about your oral health care. We have provided answers to some commonly asked questions below. If you are looking for porcelain veneers in Mississauga and would like to learn more, we welcome you to contact our office and schedule a complimentary consultation.
What dental problems can porcelain veneers correct?
Minor dental issues can often be disguised, corrected, or improved with porcelain veneers, including chips and cracks, gaps, staining and crowding. Porcelain veneers can strengthen the tooth structure in certain cases; however, if the tooth is significantly damaged, we may recommend a dental crown or another treatment to address your concern.
Do dental veneers look natural?
At Britannia Dental Care we strive to create a natural-looking outcome. Porcelain offers the same translucent shine as natural teeth, and we will match the colour either to your existing teeth, or select a shade that suits your cosmetic goals. Other than noticing the improvement in your smile, your friends and family should not be able to tell that your porcelain veneers are anything but natural.
Does insurance cover porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are considered a cosmetic treatment and are therefore not covered by most dental insurance plans. However, our treatment coordinators are happy to check in with your insurance to determine whether you have any coverage. We believe everyone deserves the smile of their dreams, and we can work with you to find a payment option that fits into your budget. For more dental financing information, please contact our team.
Will my teeth look unpleasing while I am waiting for my veneers to be fabricated?
Our dentists always create temporary veneers that are placed the same appointment that teeth are prepared. So, patients will not need to take time off from socializing, or work, as they wait for their final veneers to be fabricated. There is typically no downtime required after the procedure.
What Are The Benefits Of Porcelain Veneers?
- Porcelain veneers resist staining due to their non-porous nature
- Veneers enhance structural support of weakened or cracked teeth
- They are custom-made to give you a natural appearance
- Veneers improve the appearance of worn down, uneven or asymmetrical teeth
- They correct gaps, spaces, chips and cracks
- The procedure requires less tooth enamel to be removed than with a crown
- Typically no downtime is necessary after the procedure
How Do I Take Care Of My Porcelain Veneers?
Your smile is as simple to care for with porcelain veneers as it was without them. We recommend brushing twice daily, flossing once daily, and scheduling routine dental cleanings as often as advised by our team. We can also provide additional tips and tricks to keep your smile looking beautiful for as long as possible.
Due to the durability, beauty, and exceptional customization possible with porcelain veneers, many patients are delighted with the benefits and report a renewed sense of self-confidence.
