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?
During your first visit to our dental office, a small portion of the teeth receiving crowns will be shaved down. It is necessary to make enough room on the teeth for veneers to fit comfortably. Following the preparation of the teeth, impressions will be taken and sent to a dental laboratory; the surfaces will then be manufactured off-site by the dental laboratory and ready in a few weeks. When the veneers are finished, you will return to our Toronto dental office to have them bonded to your teeth with special cement. Our dentist will use a special light to harden the cement and make it more secure on the teeth. After the veneers have been fitted, we may adjust the bite of your teeth to ensure that the veneers fit correctly.
