A beautiful smile is the centerpiece of who we are and how we feel. When you are able to smile confidently you feel good and make people around you feel good.  Veneers is one of the most popular treatments in Cosmetic Dentistry and could completely transform your smile.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are very thin shells, the thickness of a fingernail that are placed over your existing teeth to provide a new surface, whiter colour or new shape. They are made of translucent tooth coloured porcelain materials and provide a strong aesthetic solution to your cosmetic dentistry concerns.

Veneers leave the natural tooth structure in place and simply cover over  imperfections. If you believe your teeth are too small, round, triangular or any other odd shape, the veneer shell can cover this and make the appearance of your individual teeth uniform. This technique can be used for one or more teeth depending on your individual requirements.

What Can Porcelain Veneers Achieve?

Porcelain veneers can transform an average smile with discoloured teeth and mismatched shapes into a straight, white, aesthetically pleasing smile.

Take a look at this patient for example, they have had tooth whitening and porcelain veneers applied to their front teeth for a dramatic result.

There are many benefits of porcelain veneers. A veneer procedure can correct many dental problems at the same time including:

  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Chips and cracks on teeth
  • Stubborn discoloration that does not respond to tooth whitening
  • Minor crookedness or misalignment
  • Mismatched tooth sizes
  • Uneven tooth shapes

Solve Multiple Dental Problems at Once

One of the most significant advantages of porcelain veneers is the fact that they can solve so many dental problems at the same time including: discoloration, misaligned teeth, cracked teeth, and gaps in your smile.

However, porcelain veneers can serve more than just an aesthetic purpose. Veneers can also protect teeth and improve the function and feel of your smile by:

  • Making teeth more symmetrical
  • Creating a smooth arc to your bite
  • Splinting cracked teeth
  • Making short teeth more proportionate

In many cases, cracked or weakened teeth will no longer need to be replaced after porcelain veneers are applied since the veneer can act as a splint once a tooth has been stabilized. With proper care, porcelain veneers can even help protect your teeth against decay.

An Alternative to Orthodontics

Braces are a huge commitment and investment of your time and energy. Instead of resorting to orthodontics, porcelain veneers allow you to quickly and effectively correct minor dental problems with your teeth. Because of this, veneers are sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics.”

For example, teeth that project too far backward or forward can be reshaped by our dentists so when veneers are applied, the arch of your teeth improves, making your smile not only more attractive, but more functional.

A Whiter Smile

Porcelain veneers can also help whiten your smile. When replacing an entire smile line, all of your veneers will be matched to a bright, natural color.

The translucent quality of each veneer allows light to pass through and reflect off your natural teeth, giving your smile a lustrous aesthetic depth. The non-porous surface of porcelain veneers also helps protect against future stains, maintaining the beauty of your smile for many years to come.

Why Does the Cost of Porcelain Veneers Vary so Much?

In the case of cosmetic dentistry or veneer therapy, you do get what you pay for. Outstanding cosmetic work involves talent, artistry and experience of the cosmetic dentist, dental ceramist and the team. Thus, the cost will vary from clinic to clinic.

The investment for porcelain veneers varies from case to case. As more teeth are involved, the complexity of the case increases as well as the lab fees. Fees are based on care, skill and judgement of the dentist and most of the time the fees will be higher in a clinic that emphasizes on quality, with more attention to detail and experience.

Usually when it comes to smiles, cheaper is not better. Make sure you do your homework. Find a cosmetic dentist you are comfortable with. Always ask for before and after pictures. Make sure your dentist does a thorough work-up and evaluation of aesthetics to ensure veneer treatment is right for you. Generally, the aesthetic evaluation and interview can take up to two hours.

Many of our clients visit Dental Boutique to fix and remove unhealthy and unaesthetic veneers, most of which could have been prevented if done well in the first place. The dentist and the patient need to be on the same page with regards to what a beautiful smile is. In addition, the dentist needs to be able to articulate to the patient what is to be expected and what is realistic for the individual patient.

Are Payment Plans Available?

Veneers are a long-term solution to many dental concerns and can drastically improve the appearance of your smile. Your smile is one of your greatest assets so investing in your smile is important and worthwhile.

Sometimes, the cost can get in the way of patients receiving the dental care they really need or desire. This is why Dental Boutique offers all patients interest-free financing options, making your dream smile both affordable and achievable. Financing options from Dental Boutique start from $75 a week, not including any health fund deductions or benefits.
