If you’re not satisfied with the existing appearance of your teeth, porcelain veneers may be the perfect, minimally invasive, quick and painless dental solution for you! Our Vancouver dental veneer professional, Dr. Kelly Jordan, is excited to transform smiles from drab to fab in two short visits. A strictly cosmetic treatment, porcelain veneers do not offer added stability, and are not fit to treat oral health problems. However, they are nothing but perfect when it comes to wanting a Hollywood-ready smile!
What problems can porcelain veneers fix?
Porcelain veneers offer a cosmetic option for teeth that are:
- Chipped or minimally fractured
- Unevenly spaced or gapped
- Unevenly sized
During your first consultation, our Vancouver dentist will discuss the details of the treatment and establish an ultimate smile goal: the final look and shape of your teeth. This is the perfect time to ask any questions you may have and to better understand to what extent you want your smile to change. We want to remind you that your smile is one of the first things people notice. So, if you choose veneers that differ in shade or colour dramatically from your natural teeth, your procedure will be very noticeable, very quickly. If you’re looking for a more natural look, our dentist can find the perfect shade to give you a classic, understated glamour that matches your natural smile.
How long does the procedure for porcelain veneers take?
The noninvasive, painless procedure for putting porcelain veneers requires two office visits. During your first treatment visit (not to be confused with your initial consultation), our seasoned dentist, Dr. Kelly Jordan, will prepare your teeth for the placement of your personalized veneers and fit you with temporary veneers. An impression will be taken and sent to a laboratory. As soon as your customized veneers are fabricated, you will come back to our office to have your temporary veneers removed, and your customized porcelain veneers placed.
Why aren’t the porcelain veneers made in-office?
Minute details like precise color and delicate curves require laboratory-level technology that most dental offices can neither fit nor afford in-house.
How long do porcelain veneers last?
Porcelain veneers can last many years depending on your oral hygiene routine. Porcelain is stain resistant, and will not be as detrimentally impacted by coffee, tea, and cigarette smoking as your natural teeth. However, lasting results still require a proper at-home brushing routine and a minimum of twice-a-year visits with our dentist and hygenist for comprehensive cleanings.
