Dental Veneers St. Albert
Veneers are a popular cosmetic dental procedure that are routinely used to cover teeth that are discoloured, worn, chipped, or misaligned.
They are thin shells of porcelain or resin that measure less than 1.5mm in thickness and provide a "false front" that can revolutionize your smile. You may have often thought about how nice it would be to have a completely different smile, and thanks to dental veneers, you have the opportunity to make a big change.
Steps involved in the veneer procedure
The procedure for veneers is different from bonding. The first step is to prepare the tooth and take an impression of the tooth. A temporary filling may be used while the impression is being custom created at a dental laboratory. Once the veneer has been created, it is cemented into place. Veneers are used for many of the same reasons as bonding, but offer a more durable and aesthetic alternative.
Veneers can transform your smile
Veneers are used to fix a number of aesthetic concerns with teeth such as:
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps in teeth
- Discoloured or stained teeth
- Worn or chipped teeth
However, if your front teeth have large fractures or decay, then more extensive restorative work will likely be necessary. Veneers are usually a superficial treatment designed to boost your smile’s appearance, while crowns or fillings are usually the better option for reinforcing weakened front teeth.
Long term solution for cosmetic problems
A consultation with the dentist will help you determine if dental veneers can fix your smile. Additionally, veneers are typically highly stain-resistant and durable, often lasting from ten to fifteen years. This makes them a great choice as a solution for anyone seeking that perfect smile without the worry of extra upkeep or incurring a costly dental bill.
Approach to Tooth Transformation
Veneers offer several advantages as a solution for aesthetic concerns with teeth such as:
- They provide a natural tooth appearance. The colour can be matched to your actual tooth colour.
- Gum tissue tolerates porcelain well.
- Porcelain veneers are highly stain resistant, so they usually stain less than your actual teeth, keeping them whiter for longer.
- 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.
While veneers may be more expensive and time-consuming than bonding, they are less expensive than opting for crowns and also conserve the natural tooth.
