Porcelain Veneers in Vancouver, BC
If you are unhappy with the way your teeth look, porcelain veneers from our dentists may help. Veneers are a type of cosmetic dentistry in Vancouver that can transform unsightly smiles into dazzling ones. They are made of a hard and natural looking material that is customized to fit perfectly on top of your own teeth. They reflect light the same way healthy, human teeth do.
Porcelain veneers and cosmetic dentistry in Vancouver fix dental issues including:
- tooth enamel that is worn or damaged
- teeth that are genetically disfigured
- uneven, jagged, or crooked teeth
- teeth that are cracked, chipped or broken
- stains from childhood antibiotics, tobacco and coffee/tea
The Porcelain Veneers Procedure
Porcelain veneers typically require three visits.
- Our dentists will talk with you about what you are looking to achieve, examine your mouth, and determine if porcelain veneers are the best treatment for your situation.
- Your teeth are then prepped for the porcelain veneers by taking off a small layer of tooth enamel (about half a millimeter) to make room for the veneers.
- Impression of your teeth are captured.
- You and our dentists will select the appropriate shade and the impressions will be sent out to a vendor who specializes in creating customized veneers.
- When the veneers arrive, (in three weeks), your teeth will be cleaned and primed for placement.
- Our dentists will use a special dental cement to place the porcelain veneers over your teeth, and then a dental light is used to activate the bonding chemical.
Porcelain veneers last about 10 years or longer if you take care of them with regular brushing, flossing and dental checkups. It is also a good idea to stay away from stain-causing foods, particularly raw carrots. If you grind you teeth, tell our dentists so they can prescribe a sleep guard to protect your veneers.
