Porcelain Veneers at Downtown Dental Centre, London ON
Smile imperfections resolved with porcelain veneers from London dental clinic
Have you ever marvelled at the perfect alignment, symmetry, and brilliance of a celebrity’s teeth? Often, those star smiles had help from cosmetic dentistry. The talented team at Downtown Dental Centre Family Practice offers porcelain veneers to give London area patients show-stopping smiles.
Versatile veneersVeneers are thin shells made of ceramic, fired to a hard, durable glaze. Each veneer is designed to precisely fit over the front surface of a visible tooth to improve its appearance. A single tooth may be veneered, or all that show when you smile.
Porcelain veneers are ideal for:
- Hiding enamel flaws – chips, cracks, discolouration, or natural bumps and pits.
- Reshaping teeth that are too short, worn down, or not formed attractively.
- Improving the look of misalignment. While veneers do not actually move teeth, in the hands of our artistic dentists, they give the appearance of straight, even spacing.
- Closing gaps between teeth.
What to expectPorcelain veneers have nearly instant gratification appeal. The process begins with a consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for treatment. The dentist will first address dental problems such as cavities or tooth decay. Teeth whitening may be recommended to brighten your whole mouth.
Then teeth are prepared – the dentist removes a minute layer of enamel to allow veneers to fit snugly and look natural. Impressions are made and sent to an off-site ceramist where the veneers are fabricated. You return in about two weeks to have them cemented securely in place and polished to gleaming perfection.
The dentist explains a few common-sense precautions to avoid damaging veneers. You will review the importance of good oral hygiene to keep your mouth healthy and protect this wonderful investment in your smile and self-image. With good care, veneers can last many years.
