Enhance Your Smile with Veneers

The appearance of our teeth can make a difference in how we smile. When you don’t like the way your teeth look, you might avoid showing your teeth. Everything from tooth shape to discolouration can lower your smile confidence.

Veneers can improve the appearance of your smile and can blend perfectly with your natural teeth. If you’re interested in refreshing your smile, ask our team about veneers.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are very thin shells applied to the front surface of your teeth. The thin layers are either made of porcelain or composite resin. The material is permanently bonded to your tooth. Veneers can help with many cosmetic concerns, such as chipped, cracked, discoloured, or unevenly shaped teeth.

As veneers are designed for individual teeth, patients may get a single veneer. However, most patients choose 6–8 veneers to create a symmetrical smile effectively.

Porcelain Veneers

Both materials used for veneers have advantages and disadvantages. At Mark Dentistry, we use custom-made porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are stronger than composite resin and effectively resist staining and discolouration. Additionally, porcelain veneers are more durable and last longer, so you can enjoy your enhanced smile worry-free.

Generally, it takes 2 visits to complete a veneer treatment. During the first appointment, the dentist removes a thin layer of enamel from your tooth, making room to fit the veneer. Next, temporary veneers are placed over the removed enamel, allowing time for your custom-made veneers to be created.

On the second visit, the temporary veneers are removed. Then, the dentist roughens the tooth’s surface and applies a mild chemical to improve attachment. Finally, the veneers are individually glued to your teeth using composite resin cement.

After completing treatment, veneers can feel and look like your natural teeth.

When Are Veneers a Good Fit?

Porcelain veneers commonly last at least 10 years, allowing adults time to enjoy their enhanced smile. Like your natural teeth, you can help preserve your veneers through dental hygiene. Good candidates for veneers practice good oral habits, including daily brushing, daily flossing, and regular dental exams.

Veneers are typically considered a cosmetic procedure. Although veneers can protect chipped or cracked teeth, it isn’t a solution for cavities or tooth decay. Candidates for veneer treatment should have healthy gums and tooth structures.

Dentists may recommend alternative treatment if:

  • There’s too little enamel on the tooth
  • Too much of the tooth is missing
  • The area has periodontal disease (gum disease)
  • The patient grinds or clenches teeth (bruxism)

Some patients may receive treatment for other conditions to make them good candidates for veneers. For example, early gum disease is reversible, and bruxism is treatable (ask us about night guards!). Dentists will recommend treatment options. Then, if oral health improves, they can reassess candidacy for veneers.
