Transform the appearance of your smile with dental veneers
There are two types of dental veneers: composite and porcelain. To determine which type of veneer is suitable for you, we will assess your oral health and discuss with you, your desired outcome. Next to teeth whitening, dental veneers are one of the more popular methods of restoring the appearance of healthy teeth; also dental veneers can help close space between teeth.
Composite resin veneers can be applied in just one appointment and last up to eight years. This treatment is relatively quick and is useful for concealing chips, cracks and other imperfections. One of our prosthodontists may also recommend this treatment as part of treatment to close space between teeth
For this treatment, you’ll need two appointments. The first appointment is when impressions of your teeth are taken and sent to the lab to create the porcelain veneers. In the meantime, your teeth will be prepared and temporary veneers placed. Preparing your teeth for porcelain veneers involves removing a minimal amount of enamel to allow the veneers to be bonded to your teeth seamlessly.
The second appointment is when your temporary veneers are removed and the more permanent veneers are bonded to your teeth. Porcelain veneers can last up to ten years, and are stain resistant.
