Benefits Of Porcelain Veneers - Mills Haven Dental

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers use thin, tooth-coloured shells attached to the front of your teeth. Veneers are a professional cosmetic dentistry procedure which is highly effective in achieving a great aesthetic look, as they are typically colour-matched to your natural teeth color to offer a natural finish. Besides to help fix the appearance of teeth from decay and damage, veneers are often used to improve the look of healthy teeth, too. Veneers are cosmetic dental treatment which can improve your smile and give you greater confidence.

Why Do People Need Veneers?

Veneers are often used to help with:

Dentists use porcelain or composite resin for veneer procedures to help fix issues with tooth structure, as well as to improve the appearance of teeth colour, shape, angle or spacing.

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers vs. Other Veneers

Procedure of Porcelain Veneers

The veneers procedure generally requires 2-3 appointments:

  1. Imaging and Examination - Your dentist examines your teeth and gums to advise whether you are suitable for veneers. If so, molds and impressions may be taken to start your treatment planning.
  2. Temporary Fittings and Preparation - Your dentist prepares your teeth with anesthetic and removes a thin layer of enamel from your teeth so that the porcelain veneers will fit. You will be fitted with temporary veneers to wear during the transition time as your teeth molds are sent off to be made into veneers.
  3. Fitting - Bonding and fitting of the veneers. The dentist will apply the veneers and make any final adjustments and polishing as required. Your veneers are then cemented and fixed into place

Porcelain Veneers Aftercare

Veneers require proper aftercare as they are susceptible to decay, just like natural teeth. Make sure to brush, floss and use mouthwash as you would before getting them. It is important to take care of your oral health after getting veneers just as you would care for your regular teeth.
