Benefits of veneers
Veneers are an excellent option for cosmetic dentistry, as they offer many advantages. They are:
- Their effectiveness and versatility allow them to be used to address a variety of issues and produce natural-looking results.
- We can place veneers at Richmond West Dental in just two appointments, and they are quick and simple.
- Maintaining veneers properly can extend their life to up to 30 years!
- Veneers are stain-resistant, so you can drink and eat freely without worrying about discoloring them.
How are veneers placed?
A small portion of the teeth receiving crowns will be shaved down during your first visit to Richmond West Dental in Toronto. Creating enough room on the teeth is necessary so that veneers will fit comfortably. After the teeth are prepared, impressions will be taken and sent to a dental laboratory; the veneers will then be manufactured off-site by the dental laboratory and will be ready in a few weeks. When they are ready, you will return to our office to have the veneers bonded to your teeth using special cement. Our dentist will apply a special light to the teeth in order to harden the cement and to make it more secure. After the veneers have been fitted, we may adjust the bite of your teeth in order to ensure that the veneers fit correctly.
