Porcelain veneers offer beautiful results that are non-invasive and effective, providing you with a smile you deserve. Instead of covering the entire tooth with a crown, we can bond an ultra-thin porcelain veneer onto the front side of your tooth. Here is how veneers may be beneficial for you, and what to expect during the procedure.

Why choose veneers?

Veneers are a popular choice in cosmetic dentistry in Choto because of their versatility to hide multiple imperfections in a single tooth. If you have teeth that are badly stained, slightly crooked or have a gap between a few teeth, then veneers can hide all of those imperfections instead of undergoing individual treatments.

Veneers help cover a multitude of imperfections in your teeth including:

  • Broken teeth
  • Teeth that are cracked or chipped
  • Badly stained teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Spaces between teeth that appear unnatural
  • Crooked teeth

Cosmetic Solution

Many of Choto Family Dentistry’s patients much prefer the results of porcelain veneers. Veneers offer fast, natural-looking results that boost your self-confidence. Each veneer is custom-made to fit each tooth. The porcelain is thin and tooth-colored so that the veneers look natural, once bonded to your teeth. If you choose to have only a couple of teeth treated with veneers, we can choose a shade of porcelain that matches your natural tooth shade. However, if you wish to have all of your front teeth covered by veneers, it is ideal to choose a lighter shade to achieve a permanently white smile that looks natural. The only thing people will notice is your beautiful smile!

The procedure 

During your treatment for veneers, we will take digital images of your teeth using our intraoral scanner, which takes the place of gooey impressions. We use these images to fabricate each veneer. Your teeth will be slightly buffed, which makes room for the veneers, and helps facilitate a strong bond. Once your veneers are ready, your Northshore cosmetic dentist will permanently bond the veneers to your teeth.

Aftercare

Veneers are exceptional because they are long lasting, stain resistant, and comfortable. You will not be able to tell that you have veneers on your teeth because they are so thin and natural-looking! Caring for your teeth after your veneers are placed is easy, simply brush and floss regularly. Also, continue visiting the dentist for routine checkups and cleanings. During each checkup, we will inspect your veneers to ensure a strong bond remains. You should expect your veneers to last between 7-10 years, although a specific timeframe cannot be guaranteed. Avoid using your teeth to open packages, chew ice, or bite your fingernails, as this can compromise the integrity of your new smile.
