Are there several things you’d like to change about your smile? Perhaps your teeth aren’t as white and bright as you’d like them to be. Maybe some of your teeth are chipped or have slight cracks. Others are somewhat crooked or have gaps in between them. Rather than go through all of the different cosmetic procedures necessary to fix these smile imperfections, why not just have one? With porcelain veneers, the dentists at Torbram Dental have given people in Brampton, Ontario new smiles and they can do the same for you!
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers, also called dental veneers, are made of micro-thin layers of dental porcelain that are bonded to the facial surface of your front teeth to conceal and correct the flaws in your smile. As such, porcelain veneers are considered a cosmetic procedure. However, because they might also protect teeth from further damage—such as a tooth fracture deepening—they are also a restorative procedure.
What is the Porcelain Veneer Procedure?
Your first toward a new smile with porcelain veneers is a consultation with one of our dentists. We’ll discuss your smiles goals and assess the current condition of your oral health, making sure your teeth are strong enough for veneers. Then, we’ll work with you to choose the shape and shade of porcelain veneers that will best compliment you.
Next, the teeth in your smile zone are prepared by removing a very small amount of enamel, so your veneers will lay flush with your other teeth. Then, we’ll take an impression of your teeth, which will be sent to a cosmetic dental lab where your custom-made veneers are fabricated. While your permanent veneers are made, you’ll wear temporaries. In a few weeks, you’ll return to Torbram Dental to have your own veneers bonded in to place. With proper care—brushing, flossing and regular checkups—you’re porcelain veneers can last for years.
