Covering the teeth with porcelain veneers in ON Canada
When imperfections are present on the teeth, many patients in ON, Canada turn to a cosmetic dentist to discuss the benefits of using porcelain veneers.
What are porcelain veneers?
Veneers are essentially shells made of ceramic that are custom-made to match the shape, size, and color of a patient’s teeth. They are bonded over the front of the teeth to cover imperfections and make the smile look beautiful. This is an elective procedure that many patients choose for improving their appearance and self-confidence.
Why porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are:
- Easy to place
- Simple to care for
- Safe and biocompatible
Patients who are interested in veneers are encouraged to visit Dr. David Favell of Downtown Dental Centre Family Practice. This is a great time for patients to ask questions about this treatment as well as others which may be advantageous. This includes the use of composite resin materials to accomplish comparable results in a more economical fashion.
Benefits of porcelain veneers over composite resin bonding
Composite resin bonding is not stain resistant in the same way porcelain veneers are. This means that they must be replaced more often. Veneers can last over a decade before replacement is necessary while resin is best restored every few years. Patients who want a long-term solution and the best investment are often told to consider the benefits of porcelain veneers.
