Porcelain veneers can address dental imperfections to improve the look of your smile. At Dr. Brent MacDonald’s dental office, we commonly use porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers match natural teeth well and are resistant to stains. Using dental veneers, we can address a single tooth or your whole smile.
Some of the top reasons to consider veneers include:
The porcelain veneers process requires two dental appointments. The first visit is to prepare your teeth. The dentist shapes them and buffs the surface. Doing so accommodates your smile for the veneer shells. We also take an impression of your smile and help you choose your ideal colour of veneers.
The second appointment is when we adhere the veneers to your teeth. We begin by cleaning the teeth to ensure a strong bond. Then, we place the bonding cement and set the veneer teeth. We use a dental light beam to cure the bond.
Upon receiving veneers, we also provide you with detailed care instructions. Overall, practicing good oral hygiene and visiting the dentist regularly are the best ways to extend the lifespan of your new veneers!
