Dental Veneers in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Illustration of dental veneerDental veneers are shells made from durable and tooth-like ceramics which are bonded to the front of your teeth to help you create a smile that will boost your confidence. Veneers are a great alternative to more extensive cosmetic work and are sometimes preferred over other similar cosmetic procedures such as dental bonding.

Veneers can help you fix:

  • teeth that are severely stained or discoloured
  • cracked or chipped teeth
  • teeth that have been badly worn
  • uneven or crooked teeth
  • teeth with gaps between them
  • teeth with large fillings

What to Expect

If you would like to have your teeth improved through the installation of custom-made veneers, your experience at Niagara-on-the-Lake Dental would take place something like this:

Freezing : First Dr. Clark will freeze the area being worked on with a local anaesthetic. This will leave your teeth and gums numb, making sure that you are comfortable throughout the procedure.

Shaping: Dr. Clark will then proceed to reshape your teeth to create space for the veneers. This is done using a dental file to carefully shave away part of the enamel where the veneers will fit. Dr. Clark will ensure that only a minimum amount of enamel is removed to preserve the structural integrity of the teeth.

Impression and Custom Construction: Next, an impression will be taken of the newly shaped teeth. This is sent to the dental lab so that the professionals there will be able to produce custom-made veneers based on the moulds provided, making certain that the finished pieces fit perfectly. This may take up to a few weeks.

Texturing Teeth: When you return to the office, Dr. Clark will treat your teeth with a mild acidic solution that will etch them, giving them a rough texture. This will allow for a stronger bond between the ceramic veneer and your natural teeth.

Cementing, Trimming and Polishing: Finally, the veneers are cemented to your teeth. A composite resin is applied, and the veneers are carefully fitted one at a time. An intense light is then used to cure the dental cement and ensure a solid bond. Any rough portions resulting from excess cement will be carefully trimmed away, and your teeth will be thoroughly polished, giving you a bright and dazzling smile.
