Have you ever wondered why movie stars always seem to have flawless smiles? That’s because many of them use porcelain veneers to achieve those perfect grins. Do you wish you could have pearly whites like that? You too can get porcelain veneers from your dentist in Scarborough, ON. Continue reading below as we talk more about all the benefits of veneers.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are custom-made shells of durable dental porcelain that are bonded to the front-facing surfaces of teeth. They can be used to conceal multiple cosmetic flaws in your smile, including chips, cracks, stains, gaps, or slightly crooked or rotated teeth. Because they are custom-made for each patient, they can blend in seamlessly to your natural smile.
How Are Porcelain Veneers Placed?
After your initial consultation, porcelain veneers in Scarborough can be placed in two appointments. During your first visit, your dentist will need to remove a very thin layer of enamel from the front of your teeth in order for the veneers to lay flat in your smile. This process should not hurt, as your dentist will usually administer a local anesthetic to numb any discomfort. Next, impressions will be taken of your teeth and sent off to the lab, where your permanent veneers will be crafted to fit your unique grin. In the meantime, your dentist will fit you with temporary veneers to both protect your teeth and allow you to get used to the way your new smile will feel. After a couple of weeks, you will return to the office, and voila! Your permanent veneers will be placed, and your smile will be perfect, just like a movie star’s!
How Can Veneers Benefit You?
Porcelain veneers offer many advantages to your smile, including:
- Porcelain does not irritate gum tissue
- Veneers are highly resistant to staining from colorful foods and beverages
- They look completely natural
- They can be color-customized to make any surrounding teeth appear whiter
- Getting veneers preserves more tooth enamel than getting crowns does
Porcelain veneers are a great way to enhance your smile. Ask your dentist about using veneers to attain a movie star grin.
