Creating a New Smile with Porcelain Veneers
The first step in creating a new smile with porcelain veneers is to communicate exactly what you don’t like about your smile as it is now. It’s a great idea to bring in pictures of smiles you do like, as a starting point for discussion. We can show you how veneers would look on your teeth in one of several ways. We can create a model of your teeth and put wax “veneers” on the model; we can even put acrylic (plastic) or tooth-colored filling material directly onto your teeth to demonstrate the effect veneers would have on them.
Once we have agreed on a plan, we will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel, if this step is necessary. Molds of your teeth will be taken and used by a skilled dental laboratory to create your veneers, and you will receive a temporary set of veneers to wear during the few weeks it will take to create your permanent veneers. We will be in touch with the laboratory throughout the fabrication process to make sure the finished product is just what we’ve envisioned. When the veneers come back from the lab, they will be cemented onto your teeth.
THE VENEER DIFFERENCE
The application of translucent veneers comes with several personal benefits, such as:
- Completely painless, non-invasive procedure
- Porcelain that will not stain or discolor
- Custom-designed by our BC Perio Specialists to match your teeth
- Securely bonded with a long-lasting resin-based cement
- Completely natural smile restored through precise placement
A SPECIALIST’S APPROACH
All veneers are not made equally. The performance and final appearance of a veneer depends on the accuracy of the design. Our Specialists at BC Perio can capture an accurate impression of your teeth and skillfully matches the created veneer to the natural color of your smile. The final result is a natural look that supports a confident smile!
