Dental Veneers in Vancouver, BC
Are you looking to improve minor cosmetic imperfections in your smile? Veneers are a simple, painless treatment option, ideal for patients who wish to avoid invasive or extensive treatment.
Our experienced cosmetic dentists near you use the latest scanning and imaging technology to create personalized dental treatment plans.
Preparing for Veneers in Vancouver, BC
We, at Enhance Dental Centre, will first evaluate your teeth and gum and treat any decay or cavities before fixing the veneers. High bite forces or teeth clenching may cause veneers become loose over time, and they may need to be repaired or replaced.
Cosmetic Benefits of Veneers
Veneers are super-thin porcelain coverings permanently cemented to front teeth. These versatile and popular restorations can improve your smile in several different ways. They can be used to rectify:
- Stained or discoloured teeth (which cannot be whitened with bleaching techniques)
- Minor chips, cracks or uneven edges
- Misshapen, worn or crooked teeth
- Uneven spaces or gaps in the arch
- small, pointed cone like teeth
Our family dentists in Vancouver, BC can help you determine the best type of veneers for your needs.
Porcelain Dental Veneers
Porcelain veneers are known for their high durability and aesthetic appearance. They are resistant to staining and do not require excessive grinding down of tooth structure during the process.
The dentist near you will take precise tooth measurements and send the moulds to a reliable dental lab that will fabricate the veneers for you. It usually takes anywhere between a week and ten days to get the new, custom-fit permanent veneers. We will cement a temporary veneer to protect your tooth during the interim period.
Composite Resin Veneers
Composite resin veneers are relatively easier to place and can be done in just one appointment at Enhance Dental Centre. Resin is more cost-effective than porcelain veneers and can be repaired in case of chips or cracks.
However, they are susceptible to staining and not as durable as porcelain veneers. After removing a little tooth structure, our dentists will bond and sculpt the resin veneer in a way that helps it blend with the rest of your natural dental arch.
