What Are Veneers?
Veneers are a cosmetic treatment we provide that can help address a range of concerns you might have about your teeth.
Not only can veneers help your teeth appear straighter, but they can also correct the look of:
- Cracks and chips
- Tooth stains and discoloration
- Tooth gaps
However, veneers are a cosmetic treatment and won’t help address issues like cavities or gum disease. Veneers are also not a replacement for orthodontic treatments, so we may recommend braces, Invisalign®, or other functional appliances if your tooth alignment affects your oral health.
The Veneer Process
Before recommending veneers, we must ensure your teeth are healthy enough for the treatment.
We bond the veneers to your tooth’s enamel, so we need to ensure it is strong enough for the veneer. We might not recommend veneers if you struggle with tooth grinding or jaw clenching because they can break the veneers.
Brushing and flossing your teeth regularly while wearing your veneer is essential. If you develop a cavity, we might have to redo your veneer so we can treat the issue.
Here’s what you can expect from the veneer process:
Preparing Your Teeth
The first appointment is to examine your oral health, look for potential concerns, and create moulds of your teeth.
We’ll also spend a brief amount of time buffing or reshaping your teeth to remove a layer of enamel and prepare them for a temporary set of veneers.
Once we have moulds of your teeth, we’ll send them to a lab, place your temporary veneers, and book your next appointment in a few weeks.
Placing Your Veneers
Once your veneers arrive, we’ll have you come in for a second appointment so we can apply them.
We’ll use a chemical to make your teeth a little bit rough so that the veneer sticks more securely. After, we’ll place a bonding agent on your teeth during this appointment before applying the veneers.
Once they’re applied, we’ll use a special light device to cement the veneers in place. In some cases, we may need to gently file the veneers to create space between your teeth for brushing and flossing.
There’s no recovery time needed, and you can enjoy your teeth immediately after your appointment!
