Straighten and redesign your smile with porcelain veneers available at Charlestown Dental Centre
Veneers are thin porcelain caps for your teeth that can reshape the look of your smile. They can also be used to hide discolouration, teeth that have been grinded down and misshapen and lasting mamelons which are the ridges mainly on the bottom of the two front teeth which can affect the aesthetic of your smile.
Cosmetic dental treatments such as veneers, are not only used to fix cavities or broken teeth but can also be used to improve the overall look of teeth. If you are someone who has cosmetic concerns about your smile, has experienced tooth loss from grinding or injury, or just want to make slight position alterations to your teeth – you may be an excellent candidate for porcelain veneers. Many of our patients wonder – what is the difference between veneers and crowns? A crown encases the entire tooth, whereas a veneer covers just the front of the tooth. For this reason, veneers are often a better option than crowns especially for those seeking cosmetic alterations.
Get your ideal smile with Charlestown Dental Centre
Your dentist will consult with you to design the look of your new smile and will craft your veneers accordingly. You’ll have control over the way your new smile looks and you’ll be able to conceal any discrepancies or concerns.
Most veneer installations require 3 appointments in total. One for a consultation, and two to make and apply the veneers. The installation of Porcelain Veneers is considered to be a permanent procedure, which means the process is not reversible. Veneers generally last between 7 and 15 years. At some point down the road, your veneers will need to be updated and replaced. It is important to continue to practice proper oral hygiene following the installation of your veneers. This includes brushing, flossing, and avoiding foods that cause staining such as coffee, tea, and red wine.
For any questions or concerns you may have regarding porcelain veneers, installation, or long term maintenance of veneers, please ask your dentist. For more information or to book your consultation, come in to see us at Charlestown Dental Centre today!
