What are Porcelain Dental Veneers?
The dentists at Dawson want to make you smile with confidence again. We know what it means for our patients to have the smile they’ve always dreamed of. Let us make your dreams a reality!
Porcelain dental veneers are custom-made shells of tooth-coloured material designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve your appearance. Veneers are best for those who want the most natural result possible and cosmetically fix worn, stained, crooked, or discoloured teeth fast.
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, and even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
Will Porcelain Veneers Look Natural?
Veneers look more natural than any other restoration, they could easily be mistaken for natural teeth. The porcelain reflects light just like a real tooth and will not stain or wear like natural teeth do. Clinical tests show that even years after the procedure, with proper maintenance, your new smile will look just as bright as it did the day the veneers were applied. The best part is that veneers generally require minimal tooth preparation. They look like natural teeth and won’t weaken your natural tooth structure.
We use specialized techniques to increase their resiliency allowing you to eat a full diet. We use the longest-lasting aesthetic cement to attach the veneers, which triples their longevity. We create the exact colour and translucency of your natural teeth using porcelain.
At Dawson, we want you to be a part of your transformation! Select the veneers that match your unique personality. Choosing Dawson for your smile makeover means that you will benefit from a wealth of knowledge and experience that comes from having performed thousands of smile makeovers.
What is Involved in Getting Porcelain Veneers?
First, your teeth are prepped and impressions are taken. Temporary veneers are placed until your custom veneers return from the lab (approximately two weeks). Your custom veneers are then bonded to your tooth. Veneers are individually hand-made by our lab, instead of using a machine. If you maintain your oral health as instructed by your dentist and hygienist, veneers are guaranteed for five full years from the date of application.
Can I Treat Them Like Regular Teeth?
Porcelain veneers do require some special attention. They aren’t recommended for people who have severe grinding issues or who suffer from extensive bite problems. They don’t take kindly to nail-biting or opening bobby pins, and they need diligent at-home cleaning to stay looking good as new.
What if I don’t want to alter the structure of my teeth?
Lumineers® are like porcelain veneers, but much thinner. They are placed over existing teeth without having to remove tooth structure. That means no drilling and freezing required! For more information on the difference between Lumineers® and Veneers, contact a Dawson expert today!
