Have you ever noticed the smiles on the cover of magazines and wondered how they look so perfect? In many cases, the answer could be – porcelain veneers. The cosmetic dental procedure was once considered a “treatment for the stars” but is now more accessible than ever. At Harvest Hills Dental Care, patients in East Gwillimbury and Newmarket ON can receive their own picture-perfect smile with porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are a thin layer of ceramic that is used aesthetically to cover the front of teeth to improve the appearance of the smile. The hand-crafted veneers are custom designed to your desired shade and shape specification so you can have the smile of your dreams.
Patients may use porcelain veneers in the following situations:
One of the biggest advantages of porcelain veneers is that they are typically completed in just two appointments after the initial consultation. During this consultation, we’ll ensure that your mouth is healthy enough for veneers and will recommend treatment for any tooth decay or gum disease prior to scheduling cosmetic treatment. Once we decide that veneers are the right solution, we will schedule your first appointment.
During the first appointment for your veneers, we will ready the teeth by removing a tiny amount of enamel so that the veneers do not stick out in the smile. We will then take impressions and help you select the proper shade of porcelain before sending all this information to the dental laboratory.
Once your veneers are ready, you will return to the office for the second appointment. We’ll do a “try-on” to ensure the veneers fit properly and can make small adjustments if needed before cementing them into place.
If you live in the East Gwillimbury or Newmarket area and would like to learn more about veneers to see if they are right for you, we invite you to give Harvest Hills Dental Care a call today at (365) 659-1008 to book your appointment.
