Dental Veneers From Your Port Coquitlam Dentist
Dental veneers are wafer thins shells attached to the front of your teeth. There are two types of materials to choose from ( composite resin or porcelain). Dental veneers restore the form and function of damaged or discoloured teeth. You may consider veneers if you have chipped, damaged, worn down, or discolored teeth. If you are simply unhappy with the look of your teeth, veneers can also fill in small gaps and fix teeth that are too small.
Are You A Good Candidate For Veneers?
You are the right candidate for dental veneers if you are looking to improve the appearance of your smile or repair damage to any teeth. You are not a good candidate if:
- If your tooth has tooth decay
- If there is periodontal disease in the area
- Too much of the tooth is missing
- If you grind, gnash or clinic your teeth, then you may chip or break the veneers
What are the types of dental veneers?
Composite veneers are manufactured at the dental clinic and applied directly to the surface of the teeth by the dentist. A single appointment is all that’s needed for this procedure, which will bring back your dazzling smile and hide any imperfections.
Porcelain veneers serve the same purpose as composite veneers; however, they are not made on the premise. There are four significant differences between composite veneers and porcelain veneers.
- Porcelain veneers are made in a laboratory
- Porcelain veneers are irreversible
- Porcelain veneers are long-lasting
- Porcelain veneers require two appointments.
