Maxicare Dental offers patients the opportunity to revitalise their smiles with porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-coloured ceramic that are affixed to the front surfaces of teeth.
They are an ideal solution for patients who have chipped, stained, or misshapen teeth. Veneers can also be used to close gaps between teeth and to create a more uniform smile. Maxicare Dental team will work with you to design veneers that complement your facial features and give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
The procedure is minimally invasive, and veneers are made to match the colour of your natural teeth or can be made whiter to give you a brighter smile. Porcelain is also strong and durable, making veneers a long-lasting option for improving your smile.
If you’re ready to take your smile to the next level, contact Maxicare Dental today to schedule a consultation.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-coloured ceramic that are bonded to the front sides of your teeth. They are used to improve the appearance of your smile and can be an alternative to crowns and composite veneers.
Porcelain veneers can be used to change the size, shape, and colour of your teeth. They can also be used to close small gaps between your teeth. Veneers are popular because they look natural and last a long time with proper care.
The shells are made from high-quality materials that resist staining and wear down over time. As a result, porcelain veneers can last for many years with proper care.
In general, porcelain veneers are best suited for people who have healthy teeth and gums but are dissatisfied with the appearance of their smile. If your teeth are severely stained, chipped, or misaligned, veneers may be able to help.
The procedure is also a good option for people who have gaps in their teeth or who want to change the shape or size of their teeth. Veneers are not suitable for teeth with decay or large fillings or people with gum disease, so it’s important to see your dentist for a consultation before you decide whether or not to proceed with the procedure.
If you are considering porcelain veneers, it is important to consult with an experienced cosmetic dentist who can help you decide if they are the right option for you.
Porcelain Veneers Procedure
The first step in getting porcelain veneers is to consult with a dentist to see if you are a good candidate for the procedure. If so, the next step is to have your teeth cleaned and polished. Once your teeth are prepared, your dentist will scan your teeth and send it to a dental laboratory, where your veneers will be made.
The veneer is made from a thin layer of porcelain that is custom-made to match the colour, shape, and size of the patient’s natural teeth. It can also be made much lighter if you prefer to whiten your smile. In order to bond the veneer to the tooth, the dentist will roughen the surface of the tooth and then apply a special adhesive.
Once the adhesive has been applied, the dentist will place the veneer on the tooth and then cure it with a special light. The entire process takes about an hour per tooth and can be done in one or two visits to the dentist.
The recovery period after getting porcelain veneers is relatively short. You may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures for the first few days after your procedure, but this should resolve within a week.
Once your initial recovery period is over, you can expect your veneers to last for many years with proper care. With that said, it’s still important to visit your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings.
