Created to simulate the look and translucency of enamel, porcelain veneers look and feel similar to natural teeth. Porcelain veneers can address a number of issues with your smile including chips, stains and gaps. Created from thin shells of ceramic, porcelain veneers are placed over the surface of your natural tooth restoring the look of your smile.
Porcelain veneers have the power to completely transform your smile. Whether you want to straighten crooked teeth, eliminate cracks or remove deep discolouration, veneers are a viable option to address these issues. We can select veneers that will complement the shape of your other teeth, your facial features and personality.
How Do Veneers Work?
Created from dental porcelain, they are shaped to fit the size, shape and colour of the rest of your teeth. Veneers are placed over the front of your teeth and address a number of flaws including: cracked or chipped teeth, gaps and severely stained teeth.
What Do Veneers Cost?
The cost is determined upon your consultation. Each set of veneers is custom designed for each patient. During your consultation we will evaluate your smile and create a plan that is right for you. During this time, we will discuss the cost and your options for payment.
Can I Remove The Veneers at a Later Date?
Custom veneers are permanent because we remove a layer of enamel to prepare your teeth for porcelain veneers. Options such as Lumineers® are reversible and allow you to return to your original smile. However, Lumineers are not right for everybody. You will need to have a consultation and examination to determine which option is the best for you.
Can I Whiten My Teeth Instead?
Whitening can brighten your smile and enhance your appearance. However, whitening does not address gaps, chips or permanent stains. Porcelain veneers cover your teeth to create a straighter and more attractive smile.
How Long Does The Treatment Take?
Typically, the process for receiving veneers is two weeks. During your treatment, we will perform an exam, take impressions of your teeth and have your return to our office for final placement of your porcelain veneers.
