Veneers Will Give You Your Best Smile
Does your smile make you… well, smile?
If it’s hard to answer that question confidently, you might be happy to hear that our dentist offers veneers!
What are veneers?
Veneers are very thin shells made of porcelain that are adjusted to enhance and perfect the appearance of a patient’s natural smile. Essentially, these tooth-resembling shells can cover up stains or discolouration, alter the shape of natural teeth, correct mild crookedness, and fill in gaps or spaces. It’s like magic!
The Process to a Perfect Smile
When a patient comes in for their initial consultation, our Guelph dentist will discuss with them their dental history, and what goals they are trying to achieve with the look of their smile. If the patient is considered to be a good candidate for the dental veneers procedure, then they can look forward to the exciting next steps! The patient will come in for another visit and will have impressions taken of the teeth they want to treat with veneers. These impressions will be sent off to a lab for fabrication.
People will typically require that their teeth be prepared for the placement of the veneers, which involves buffing down some of the natural tooth enamel to make room. Once the veneer is back from the lab and ready for placement, they will be adjusted accordingly and finally bonded to the teeth using a special adhering material.
After treatment is complete, the patient can embrace their brand new smile for many, many years! They just need to be willing to care for their veneers and teeth with proper daily oral hygiene habits, and by always remembering to be gentle on them (in other words: patients who grind their teeth or who tend to bite their nails or bite on hard objects should manage these habits before getting veneers)!
