Smiling is the second most contagious facial expression, coming in second only to yawning. Unfortunately, some people can’t smile or yawn freely – they cover their mouths, turn away, or keep their lips shut in public.
In many cases people cover their mouths because that have bad teeth – cracked, chipped, worn, yellow, or otherwise damaged. But these problems can be completely addressed with simple porcelain veneers put in place at by a highly qualified dentist.
What is a Porcelain Veneer?
Porcelain veneers are very thin pieces of strong porcelain that
are attached to your natural teeth. They both look and feel natural, and maintain the function of your normal teeth while also improving your smile.
They can be put in place in a few weeks, and once in your mouth require no recovery time. After a few visits to your dentist, you can have a brand new smile and head back out into the world with new confidence in your appearance!
Are you a Candidate for Veneers?
There are several things to look at when deciding if you are a candidate for veneers:
Color – Tooth color can be altered by many things, including getting old. Antibiotics can cause tooth discolouration as can certain drinks, foods, and smoking. Porcelain veneers can cover these discolourations with a pearly-white finish.
Size – Sometimes a smile can be ruined by teeth that are too small. Veneers go on top of teeth and can make your teeth seem larger or give all of your teeth a pleasantly similar size.
Tooth Alignment – If you have misaligned teeth or gaps, veneers are an inexpensive, quick, and easy treatment that gives you a sparkling smile!
Cosmetic Flaws – porcelain veneers effectively hide cracks, chips, and oddly shaped teeth. Porcelain veneers have the advantage of being entirely lifelike.
Putting on Your Veneer
When you visit for a consultation about porcelain veneers, you’ll find you have many choices including the shape, shade, and opacity of your veneers.
After you’ve found the perfect porcelain veneers options, your dentist will carefully remove a small amount of the tooth’s surface, to create a better fit and bond for your veneer. This process is done under local anesthesia, so it is not painful. Impressions of your teeth will be made and sent to a dental lab to create porcelain veneers that will perfectly fit the natural structure of your teeth.
While the dental lab handcrafts your new porcelain veneers, you can choose to have temporary veneers placed
Once the lab ships your finished permanent porcelain veneers, you visit your dentist for a final fitting. The temporary veneers will be removed and the porcelain veneers placed over your natural teeth. Finally, your dentist will give you an aftercare regimen to ensure that your veneers last a very long time!
