Veneers, A Brand New Smile!
Are crooked, stained teeth making you frown rather than flashing a wide smile? Do you have teeth with chips, cracks and gaps, or do your teeth just look worn down? Yes, having healthy teeth is important, but you want to look your best as well, having the self-confidence that a great looking smile can bring. This is when veneers in Toronto, ON can help!
Veneers As A Dental Improvement
One of the most popular cosmetic dental improvements for millions of people across North America is the porcelain veneer. While these super-thin, tooth-shaped shells of porcelain cannot correct major bite problems, serious fractures, seriously compromised teeth or gums or complex orthodontic issues, they can address a whole host of small but noticeable defects in tooth enamel and alignment. In fact, porcelain veneers can transform the look of your teeth.
Are porcelain veneers right for your mouth?
Your Downtown Toronto Dentist can perform a complete smile analysis, with photos and other imaging of your teeth and gums. She can present you options to fix:
- staining from foods, cigarettes and beverages such as wine, coffee and colas
- fractures and chips from mouth injuries
- discoloration from aging
- size and shape issues
- uneven wearing of teeth
- teeth that bite together improperly
How are porcelain veneers placed?
If you and your Toronto dentist decide that dental veneers are a good choice, she will gently remove a thin amount (about 1/2 millimeter) of tooth enamel from the front surface of each tooth to receive a porcelain veneer. She will take impressions and send them to a dental lab where a technician will artfully craft custom veneers perfect in fit, form and color for your mouth. Additionally, the dentist may show you what your updated smile will look like with a photo produced through cosmetic imaging.
Veneer Tooth Bonding
At the next dental visit, the doctor will securely bond the veneers to your teeth, adjusting the shape and size as needed. Adjusting the color of the cement used can help the veneers to blend in naturally with neighboring teeth.
With regular dental check-ups and cleanings, together with diligent daily flossing and brushing, your bright and attractive smile can last for years. Your veneers are almost as durable as natural enamel, but take care not to abuse them (or natural tooth surfaces) with chewing tough foods such as ice cubes or peanut brittle or with opening bottles or packaging with your teeth.
