Dental veneers are quite popular these days. If you’ve admired people who show off a bright, perfectly aligned smile, the chances are good that they have Dental veneers to enjoy a natural-looking, gorgeous smile.
Available at Kinross Drive Dental, dental veneers are a cosmetic option to help you achieve a stunning look. It’s a simple procedure that is noninvasive, taking just two appointments to complete.
Veneers mimic the appearance of natural teeth. They can be custom-fabricated to the colour, shape and size that you wish. Each is individually crafted using composite or porcelain, then bonded to the surface of your existing teeth.
The first step is to have a consultation, during which our dentist will evaluate your oral health and determine the best solution to achieve your goals. If we agree that veneers are the right option, we’ll gather the necessary data such as intraoral and extraoral photographs and impressions. With the proper information, your veneers will be completed to exact specifications in our dental lab.
Your teeth will also be prepared to receive the veneers. A small amount of tooth enamel is necessary to remove from the surface so that the veneers will align perfectly and bond into place. Each step will be discussed with you before proceeding. You’ll be fitted for a temporary set of veneers that you can wear until your set arrives.
Your veneers will be completed in about two weeks. They’ll then be sent back to our practice and are bonded to your teeth. Our dentist cleans, polishes and etches the teeth to ensure that the strongest possible bond is created. The veneers are cemented into place and set with a specialised light.
Though veneers tend to be stain-resistant, you must brush and floss as usual to make sure that cavities or gum disease don’t set in. Along with your home care, it’s essential to schedule two dental checkups a year, which will include an evaluation of your veneers.
