Veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures due to the number of problems they can treat. They are also a good solution for keeping damaged teeth healthy and preventing the need for more complex treatments. To receive a veneer, you only need to book two appointments at our clinic.
What Problems Can Veneers Treat?
Veneers can treat both minor and extensive damage. They can mask cracks and chips. They can restore the appearance of a stained or discoloured tooth due to genetics, smoking, medications, or diet. They can even change the shape of a tooth, lengthening teeth that are too short or worn down and fixing the appearance of uneven teeth. Finally, they can be an alternative to orthodontic treatment to fill gaps between teeth.
Benefits of Veneers
Veneers look completely natural. With a veneer, no one will be able to tell that you have had any treatment to your teeth. Plus, they only involve removing a minimal amount of tooth structure, unlike some other solutions, such as crowns.
The Procedure: What to Expect
Before you can receive a veneer, we will ask you to schedule a consultation. We will check the condition of your teeth and oral health in general to determine whether a veneer would be an appropriate option. As veneers are irreversible, we will explain the procedure and results in depth as well as discussing alternatives.
If you decide that a veneer is right for you, the first step will be to prepare your tooth. You will receive a local anesthetic, after which we will remove the surface of your tooth. We will then make an impression of your tooth and choose the right colour for the veneer. We send this information to a dental laboratory.
You will return to our dental centre when your veneer is ready. We will bond the veneer to your tooth and make any necessary adjustments.
