Porcelain Veneers – Your General Cranbrook Dentist
If you are interested in altering the physical shape or visual appearance of one or more of your teeth, then your general Cranbrook dentist, Dr. Brett Bevans and the team at Victoria Avenue Dental can provide you with dental veneers as a suitable alternative to tooth bonding. Dental veneers are essentially custom made shells that are crafted from tooth coloured materials that include porcelain, ceramic, and composite resin. As such, they are often referred to as porcelain veneers, and are designed to envelop or enclose the front surface of your teeth.
If you are suffering from a variety of dental issues or complications, then porcelain veneers may be an ideal solution for you. The following is a list of what porcelain veneers can be effective in treating:
- Porcelain veneers are effective in treating discoloured or stained teeth, that may be the result of consuming beverages like coffee, tea, or wine.
- Porcelain veneers can be effective in treating worn out, cracked, chipped, or slightly damaged teeth.
- Porcelain veneers can also be effective in realigning teeth that are uneven or irregularly shaped.
- Porcelain veneers are effective in closing gaps and spaces in between teeth.
The process or procedure to obtain your own set of porcelain veneers often requires several appointments with your general dentist. The first of which involves a consultation and thorough examination of your teeth to determine if porcelain veneers are a suitable option for your unique dental situation. Your general dentist will then prepare your tooth or teeth to adequately receive the porcelain veneer, by reshaping and trimming the enamel. Once completed, a digital impression or mould of your teeth will be taken and sent to a dental laboratory, where your custom made porcelain veneers will be crafted. During your follow up appointment, your general Cranbrook dentist will permanently bond the porcelain veneers onto your teeth, polishing and trimming it until it looks natural.
