Brighten your smile with cosmetic veneers from your Scarborough dentist

Dr. Amir Awadalla at Esquire Dental Center, Providing Cosmetic Veneers

Our teeth are covered with durable enamel, which is intended to protect softer tissues and nerves. There are several factors that may lead to tooth damage such as discoloration, chips, or cracks. Imperfections, whether caused by injury or decay, or genetic in nature, can cause you to feel troubled about your appearance. Rather than remain dissatisfied with the appearance of teeth, patients of Esquire Dental Centres can choose to cover imperfections with beautiful porcelain veneers in a short, minimally-invasive process.

What are veneers?

In cosmetic dentistry, there are direct and indirect veneers. Porcelain veneers are indirect, which means thin sheets of porcelain are coloured and shaped in a dental laboratory and bonded to teeth in a subsequent procedure. Typically, porcelain veneer treatment is completed in two office visits. This treatment is more popular than direct veneers, which places a composite resin material directly onto teeth, because porcelain closely replicates many of the natural characteristics of tooth enamel. With porcelain, the smile retains its most natural beauty.

Porcelain veneers can be used to address issues such as:

  • Discoloration
  • Gaps
  • Poorly shaped teeth
  • Unevenness, in which some teeth look longer or shorter than others
  • Tooth fractures, chips, or cracks
  • Worn down teeth

Porcelain veneers permanently alter the smile in a beautiful way. Treatment typically lasts more than 10 years. However, it is possible to extend the life of veneers by taking special care not to damage their structure or their bond with teeth.

Protecting the life of veneers is pretty simple. Patients are encouraged to brush and floss daily in order to prevent cavities and gum disease. Pressure may also damage veneers, so it is advisable to avoid biting on hard objects or holding objects with teeth. Patients who show signs of grinding or clenching will be advised to wear a night guard, a comfortable appliance that looks like the mouth guards worn by athletes. Night guards, worn during sleep, minimize the pressure of clenching on veneers and thus prevent damage.

Your skilled dentist has a number of cosmetic treatments to enhance your smile. Porcelain veneers have helped many of our patients from Scarborough, Pickering, and North York feel more confident. To see how veneers can improve your smile, contact us today.
