When you work with the The Dental Café, we can help you choose the best method for a straight and beautiful smile. Most often, Invisalign is the best option.

What are Veneers?

Veneers are designed to match your natural teeth. They are tooth coloured, and they often serve as a substitute for teeth whitening. The veneers look perfect, stay in place, and can be replaced at any time.

What is the Process?

When we are ready to insert your veneers, we make certain that your teeth are clean. We prepare each tooth, set the veneer in place, and allow the adhesive to dry. The process takes some time because we must place several veneers during your appointment, but we can handle the entire process in just one sitting.

How Do You Qualify for Veneers?

You qualify for veneers when you have straight, healthy teeth. Because results vary depending on the state of your teeth and how your mouth responds to treatment, the dentist must complete a full consultation before proceeding. We are happy, however, to offer our patients other services that help them prepare for veneers.

For example, we can help you with Invisalign to straighten your smile before we install the veneers. If we must complete more intensive dental procedures, we will explain and schedule them as soon as possible.

What are the Benefits of Veneers?

Veneers are much easier to manage than more complex dental treatments. They are also a great way to boost your confidence and get you smiling again quickly. Veneers are low maintenance, and because they match your natural tooth colour, they look just like real teeth.

What are the Alternatives to Veneers?

The alternatives to veneers are generally whitening products, braces, and surgeries. We know that many of our patients are often not enthused about surgery or braces, and that is why we offer veneers as a more straightforward option.

How Much Do Veneers Cost?

Prices vary depending on the person. We will give you a complete estimate for the veneers, and we also offer financing, payment plans, and are willing to discuss costs with you before treatment begins.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. These shells are bonded to the teeth, changing their colour, shape, size, or length. Veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials, with porcelain being favoured for its ability to resist stains and better mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth.

Veneers are ideal for individuals looking to improve the appearance of their smile and have issues such as stained teeth that cannot be whitened, chipped or worn teeth, irregularly shaped or misaligned teeth, or gaps between their teeth. A good candidate should have healthy teeth and gums. Your dentist will evaluate your oral health to determine if veneers are the right option for you.

With proper care, porcelain veneers can last between 10 to 15 years, and composite resin veneers about 5 to 7 years. The longevity of veneers depends on good oral hygiene practices, avoiding habits that can damage veneers, such as biting on hard objects, chewing ice, or using your teeth to open packaging.

The process of applying veneers involves removing a small amount of tooth enamel to accommodate the veneer, making it a permanent treatment. Because the enamel is trimmed, the tooth will always need to be protected with a veneer or crown. However, veneers themselves are not permanent and may need to be replaced due to wear, damage, or decay.

Veneers do not require any special care beyond good oral hygiene practices. You should continue to brush twice a day, floss daily, and visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. While porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, it is still a good idea to avoid excessive consumption of stain-causing foods and beverages.

The number of veneers you need depends on your dental goals and the issues you wish to correct. Some people opt for a single veneer to fix a broken or chipped tooth, while others may choose six to eight veneers to create a uniform, symmetrical smile. Your dentist will work with you to determine the appropriate number of veneers to achieve your desired outcome.

Additional Information

After your procedure, our dental office will provide you instructions on how to look after and care for your veneers. One essential point of care is brushing and flossing. You want to keep your veneers in good condition, and brushing them is the best way to do that. We also recommend flossing because you want to remove food that gets stuck in between your teeth.
