Scarborough Porcelain Veneers: Transform Your Smile

Lady smiling looking wistfully into distance Do you find it difficult to smile because your teeth are yellow? Or, do you lose confidence while talking because you have crooked teeth? With the evolving innovations in the field of dentistry, there is now an option to give you a smile makeover. You can have porcelain veneers bonded to your teeth so that you can smile with complete confidence.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells made of ceramic material. Once your dentist bonds them to the front of your teeth, all your troubles such as stained, crooked, or gapped teeth are over. Porcelain veneers can be expensive, but the relief and confidence that you get will last a lifetime. However, it is imperative that an experienced cosmetic dentist like Dr. Bal performs this procedure as they will aesthetically handle the process. Moreover, porcelain veneers are irreversible and need expert handling.

Porcelain veneers can rectify various cosmetic related teeth problems. They can repair uneven teeth, reduce excess gum tissue on your teeth, fix chipped teeth due to an injury, as well as minimize the sensitivity in your teeth. All these reasons make it a very popular option among dentists and their patients.

Veneers FAQs

Frequently asked questions about veneers

Veneers in Scarborough are a cost-effective method to achieve the smile of your dreams quickly. However, they are a big commitment. It is normal to have some concerns before you are ready to move forward. Your dentist will explain everything during your consultation for veneers. While you wait, here are the answers to a few frequently asked questions.

Are veneers permanent?

Veneers aren't permanent because they must be replaced, eventually. They aren't considered reversible, either. The process of applying veneers requires a small amount of enamel to be shaved off. Unfortunately, your enamel can't regenerate. Although the etching process doesn't harm the health of your teeth, they will be vulnerable to decay if they aren't covered by restorations. Thankfully, veneers are designed to be a long-term solution, which can last 10 years or longer with the right care. You can get the most out of your investment by brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup.

 

How many veneers will I need?

It is possible to apply a veneer to a single tooth to fix a chip or crack, but the goal of the procedure is to enhance the entire smile. Therefore, they are often recommended for the teeth most visible when smiling. Since every mouth is unique, there isn't any way to know how many you will need without first examining your teeth. Some patients may need as few as 4 to 6, while others can benefit from 8 to 10. Your cosmetic dentist in Scarborough will explain the amount it will take to reach your goals.

 

Does getting veneers hurt?

No one looks forward to pain in the dental chair, but there is nothing to fear. Modern veneers are thinner than ever, so less of your enamel is removed during the preparation process. As a result, the procedure is less invasive to reduce any discomfort. Your dentist may use a local numbing agent to keep you comfortable, but it isn't always necessary. Although you won't have any pain during the procedure, your teeth may be a little sensitive for a few days. You can manage it with an OTC pain reliever. Your dentist will advise you to eat softer foods until any discomfort subsides. It's best to skip hard or sticky foods, even after any tenderness has subsided.

 

Do veneers feel natural?

Early veneers had a bad reputation for feeling bulky, but that's a concern of the past. Porcelain allows veneers to feel smooth and sleek when running your tongue over them. Etching the surfaces of your teeth ensures they sit flush and there aren't any ridges or protrusions. Our office uses advanced technology to ensure your veneers fit your teeth like a glove. Although porcelain veneers are lightweight, they are durable. It may take a few days to get used to your new smile, but you will forget your veneers aren't part of your natural teeth in no time.
