Quality Porcelain Dental Veneers Kanata

Have you ever wondered how movie stars and models have such perfect looking teeth? One of the most common ways people improve their smiles is with the use of porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin, durable, pieces of porcelain that are custom made to look like a tooth. Each veneer is fabricated in a dental laboratory to have the exact look, shape and colour of the tooth (or teeth) you want. They are bonded to the front of your teeth to create an attractive smile.

Remember the last time you were at a dinner party and checked your teeth in a mirror after having finished a glass of cabernet sauvignon? If you are like most patients who come to see us, your teeth were stained red. Well, guess what? porcelain veneers do not stain!

Porcelain veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to dental crowns and are the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.

As with most dental treatments, veneers are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. Regardless, veneers are very durable and can be expected to last for many years, giving you a beautiful, natural and lasting smile.

Reasons to get porcelain veneers:

What’s involved in getting porcelain veneers:

Getting veneers will usually take two or three visits to our office to complete the procedure – depending on the number of teeth you wish to treat. Most people get multiple teeth prepared at a time for the purposes of maintaining an even look and symmetry in their smile.

When you visit us for the first time, the teeth will be shaped in order to account for the thickness of the veneers. Then a mold will be taken of the affected teeth and sent off to the dental lab to fabricate your veneers. You will discuss in detail with the dentist your expectations for your new smile. The exciting part is YOU get to choose just how white you want your smile to be!

On the next visit to our office the teeth will be cleaned with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement will then be placed between the tooth and the veneer. A special curing light is used to harden and set the bond.

Maintaining proper oral hygiene procedures, such as brushing and flossing, along with regular visits to our office, will help maintain the longevity of your new veneers.
