Veneers are egg-shell thin porcelain facings that are cemented onto the visible front portion of a patients tooth. Veneers are the most esthetic option for patient to improve the looks of their teeth. Do you have chipped teeth? stained teeth? discoloured teeth? small teeth? crooked teeth? spaced teeth? The procedure is a a fast, pain-free option to create life-changing smiles in less than a week. Each patients veneers are custom made, with custom shading and glazing at our lab. Our results are virtually undetectable. We can also provide wax-ups or mock-ups to give patients an idea of what their smile makeover would look like if they choose. Your dentist will have chosen a shade of porcelain for your veneer that they expect will result in a close match with your tooth's neighboring teeth. But because it's translucent, its precise color can be fine tuned by way of the shade of the cement that's used to bond it in place.
No special care is required for your Dental veneers. It's best to continue to follow typical oral health practices, such as brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash. For the most part, they will resist stains, but a dentist may recommend that you avoid stain-causing foods and beverages (i.e.: red wine or Tim Horton's coffee). You may always ask your dentist questions around specific foods known to stain.
