Veneers

Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented or bonded over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked. Little or no anesthesia is needed. Veneers have a longer life expectancy and color stability than bonding, and highly resist permanent staining from coffee, tea, or even cigarette smoking.

Veneers are usually made by a dental lab technician working from a model provided by your dentist. Veneers are usually irreversible because it`s necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the porcelain shell.

Porcelain veneers can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by tetracycline, by an injury, or as a result of a root-canal procedure, and are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth. Patients with gaps between their front teeth or teeth that are chipped or worn may consider porcelain veneers.

Typically, veneers entail at least three appointments: initial diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation of the teeth, and bonding of the permanent veneers.

During the tooth preparation visit, usually lasting one to two hours, the teeth are lightly buffed to allow for the small added thickness of the veneer. Usually, about a half but possibly up to one  millimeter of the tooth is removed, which may require a local anesthetic. During the same visit, a mold or scan is taken of the teeth, and sent to the cosmetic laboratory for the fabrication of the veneers.

During the final “bonding” visit the veneers are placed on the tooth surface with water or glycerin on the teeth to check their fit and get a sense of the shade or color. While the veneers are resting on your teeth, they can be adjusted with various shades of cement to match the color of your teeth. To apply the veneer, the tooth is cleansed with specific chemicals to achieve a bond. Once a special cement is sandwiched between the veneer and tooth, a visible light beam causes a catalyst to be released, hardening the cement.

During a two-week period of adjustment that follows, you may notice the change of size and shape in your teeth. It is important to brush and floss daily. After one to two weeks, you`ll return for a follow-up appointment where consideration for a retainer, to help hold the position of the veneers, will be discussed. Porcelain veneers are reasonable facsimiles of natural teeth, not perfect replacements. It`s common to see slight variations in the color of porcelain veneers upon close inspection, as this occurs even in natural teeth.

Harder than tooth enamel – resisting wear and stains for many years. When firmly bonded to a sturdy substructure, such as a tooth, it becomes very strong and durable. Veneers can be used to correct stains, discoloured, worn, chipped or cracked, and misaligned teeth.

For certain patients no preparation of the teeth may be necessary. Please see our specialties page for more information.
