What is Veneer?
Veneers are wafer-thin shells that are most often made from porcelain or ceramic and are bonded to the front surface of a tooth. Veneers are a great way to improve your smile, especially if your teeth are chipped, misaligned, malformed, have gaps, very discoloured or will not and cannot be whitened. At Ocean Dental Care in Oakville, our dentists makes impressions of your teeth and then a mold of the way your teeth will look once the veneers are placed. The mold is sent to a dental lab where the veneers are created. Once they are returned to your dentist’s office (typically in five to ten business days), Ocean Dental Care dentists use a special cement to apply the veneer to your teeth.
What Are The Benefits of Veneers?
They provide a natural tooth appearance.
Gum tissue tolerates porcelain well.
Porcelain veneers are stain resistant.
The color of a porcelain veneer can be selected such that it makes dark teeth appear whiter.
Veneers offer a conservative approach to changing a tooth's color and shape; veneers generally don't require the extensive shaping prior to the procedure that crowns do, yet offer a stronger, more aesthetic alternative.
How To Take Care of Veneers?
Despite popular misconceptions, dental veneers need no special care other than daily brushing, flossing and dental check-ups to improve optimal oral hygiene. Although dental veneers are durable and can last many years, they are not permanent. Like most other dental restorations, one day a replacement may be necessary (usually in 15-20 years). But they are still one of the best solutions for dental cosmetics to create a lovely white smile that everyone loves!
If you wonder if Dental Veneers are right for you or not, our dentists at Ocean Dental Care in Oakville will guide you about what treatment best fits your needs and how to get and maintain that beautiful natural smile you always wanted.
