Porcelain veneers are a relatively simple way to cosmetically enhance your smile.
Veneers are usually made from porcelain or composite filling material. They are wafer thin, and are placed over your teeth to improve their appearance.
In just two or three dental visits, a veneer can reverse years of stains caused by foods, caffeine and tobacco use. Veneers can also be used to correct discoloured, worn down, cracked and chipped teeth and to close unsightly gaps between teeth.
The dentists at St.Vincent Smile work closely with our experienced lab technicians to create a veneer that is a perfect colour and shape for your teeth.
An impression of the tooth must be made and molds are prepared. Because veneers require a small amount of enamel to be removed, they are permanent and non-reversible.
The process involves buffing the tooth, removing an extremely thin layer of the tooth to allow for the thickness of the veneer, an impression of the tooth, and final bonding of the veneer to the tooth with special cement. A special light is used to complete the process.
Veneers are usually performed in two visits, and can change your entire smile. Talk to us today to discover how you can quickly improve the appearance of your teeth and smile with veneers.
