Do You Dream of a Picture-Perfect Smile?

If you are feeling self-conscious about a less-than-perfect smile, veneers may be the right solution for you. Veneers give the illusion of a perfect smile while relying on the strength and stability of your natural teeth.

If you want to know if veneers are an option for you, please book an appointment with our office. Our experienced staff will discuss all your cosmetic options in detail to get you closer to a bright, even, beautiful smile.

What Are Veneers?

A veneer is a wafer-thin shell made of either porcelain, ceramic, or resin-based composite that is bonded to the front of the tooth. Veneers are a popular cosmetic dental procedure for both durability and versatility and can be used to solve a variety of aesthetic dental concerns, including:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Discolouration that cannot be corrected with teeth whitening
  • Crooked teeth or other misalignment issues
  • Severely worn teeth

Veneers are a permanent solution. Once they are bonded to your teeth, they cannot be removed – they can only be replaced. For that reason, it is important to treat them as you would your natural teeth – brushing twice per day, flossing at least once per day, and going for annual dental exams and cleanings.

Veneers can last, on average, 10-15 years if treated carefully. This includes avoiding hard, sticky, or chewy foods. If your veneer becomes chipped or it is not fully sealed and a cavity forms underneath, they may have to be replaced.

Am I a Candidate for Veneers?

Veneers are best suited to people who:

  • Have healthy teeth and gums
  • Have thick enough tooth enamel to accommodate the veneer
  • Have only minor tooth damage
  • Do not grind their teeth or clench their jaw

Types of Veneers

Veneers are typically made from either ceramic, porcelain, or composite resin. Which one we recommend will depend on the condition of your teeth and your budget.

Ceramic veneers, such as IPS Empress, are incredibly durable and provide an excellent colour matching system. At Imagine Dental, we use IPS empress for veneers as well as other dental solutions inlays and onlays.

The Veneer Procedure

The veneer procedure differs according to which material is being used. Porcelain and ceramic veneers typically require two sessions to apply, while composite resin veneers can be applied in a single session.

After administering a local anesthetic, we will apply the resin in thin layers, using a special lamp to harden every layer. Once the final layer has been applied and hardened, we will shape and polish your veneer so that it blends in seamlessly with your other teeth.

During your first appointment, our dentist will administer a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort and help you remain comfortable during your procedure.

After applying a local anesthetic, we will carefully remove a thin layer of enamel from the front of your tooth to make room for the veneer. Next, we will take a mould of your teeth to create your custom veneer, a process that helps your new veneers blend in as seamlessly as possible.

After taking these impressions, we may fit you with a set of temporary veneers to protect the surface of your teeth while your permanent veneers are being made.

During your second appointment, our dentist will remove the temporary veneers and install your permanent ones using safe composite resin cement. We will check to make sure the fit is optimal, and do a quick check to ensure everything is perfect.
