Dental veneers are thin shells, typically made of porcelain, that are bonded to your teeth to cover them. A lot goes into the process of designing veneers that will suit each and every one of our patient’s unique appearances.
We custom design our veneers so they fit everything from our patient’s facial structure to their lip movement and their natural teeth. We also assess varying shades of white to help the veneers look as natural as possible when we bond them to your teeth – with the amount of effort we put into ensuring they are perfectly suited to your face, no one will ever know they’re there!
Veneers are typically used as a non-invasive approach to improve certain esthetic elements of the smile. They can mask teeth that are yellowed, chipped, stained, or crooked, acting as a non-surgical route to your dream smile!
The process of bonding the veneers is quite simple and minimally invasive. The tooth, or teeth in question will be prepared for the veneer by having a minimal amount of the tooth’s structure removed. This is simply to ensure a smooth application and is virtually painless. After the tooth, or teeth, have been properly prepared, the veneers will either be handcrafted by a professional ceramist with the instructions we’ve given them or will be created using advanced CAD/CAM technology. No matter who or what crafts your veneers, they will always be professionally done.
The last step of the process is to ensure the colour and shape are ideal for our patient’s facial structure! We will ensure this before officially bonding the veneers to your teeth, where they will remain for the next 10-25 years. Veneers can last a very long time if they are well taken care of, and we will make sure you’re properly equipped and knowledgeable enough to make them last for a very long time!
