Veneers from your South Vancouver Dentist
Porcelain veneers are thin layers of porcelain fixed onto teeth to enhance their appearance, and in some cases, to protect the teeth. Veneers allow many patients to achieve a dramatic smile makeover without highly invasive treatments.
Veneers typically require 2-3 appointments. The first is a consultation with our dentist to determine the desired look, and plan the shape of the veneers to achieve it. During the second visit, the tooth surfaces will be prepared by removing a very thin layer of enamel, and taking impressions of the teeth. Using these impressions, veneers are fabricated to fit onto the surfaces, either on-site, or at a lab facility. On the third visit, the dentist will apply a cleaning solution to prepare the tooth surfaces for bonding, and the permanent veneers will be cemented.
Veneers can be a wonderful addition to your smile, adding confidence to your daily life. Please contact our South Vancouver dental office, Smile A Lot Dental Centre, for more information or to schedule a consultation or appointment.
