People notice smiles – don’t you? An imperfect gives a very different impression than a smile with straight, white, attractive teeth. What do you think when you look at your smile? Is it all you want it to be?
Dental veneers transform a smile and replace the need for many other dental procedures, ultimately improving self-esteem, while saving time and expense. Made of porcelain or composite resin, veneers will redefine tooth colour, shape, spacing, and overall appearance. Every element of what makes a smile attractive can be addressed with veneers. So, whether you want a big, bold smile for your giant personality, or you’d like a more demure and mature smile, porcelain veneers can deliver the look you want to achieve. Call the Tooth Corner dental clinic nearest you, in Southern Ontario, to schedule a cosmetic dentistry appointment now.
Do you know what you want your smile to look like? The cosmetic dentists at The Tooth Corner have performed many smile makeovers with veneers, as well as other aesthetic procedures. Your personal preferences, plus the dentist’s expertise and experience, will come together in the development of a treatment plan for your new smile.
To prepare for your appointment, look at your smile. Consider these questions:
The dentist will talk with you about how many teeth should be treated and which type of veneers are best suited for your goals, budget, and lifestyle. Porcelain veneers are handmade restorations, crafted in a dental lab. Made with layers of semi-translucent, custom-shaded porcelain, each veneer is a work of art. Porcelain veneers are indirect restorations, like dental crowns. They are not made in our office. In most cases, porcelain veneers can endure up to 15 years or more, for patients who maintain good oral health. Though they are an investment, porcelain veneers offer excellent durability and longevity, and they look completely natural.
Composite resin veneers are more affordable, and we place them in a single visit. Resin is the same material used for tooth-colored dental fillings. For a veneer, the dentist applies layers of custom-shaded resin onto the etched surface of the tooth. A cool curing light hardens the resin between layers, and ultimately, the tooth takes on a completely new appearance. Composite veneers are direct restorations, because they’re not made in a lab. They cost less than porcelain veneers but may last only 5 years or so, depending on the patient’s habits, oral health, and diet.
Whether you have dental cracks, chips, discolouration, or another cosmetic concern about your smile, we want to help you. A thorough consultation is the place to start, so schedule an appointment by calling or emailing your closest Tooth Corner dental office in Southern Ontario today.
