Why Burlington patients choose porcelain veneers for crooked teeth
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words… at Dentistry at La Salle, we think smiles are worth a thousand words! If you feel like your smile isn’t sending the right message to others due to imperfections such as crooked teeth, discolorations, chips, or other aesthetic issues, we have options to help you achieve the stunning smile you’ve always wanted. One of the most versatile and popular cosmetic treatments we offer Burlington, ON area patients is porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers in a nutshell
Porcelain veneers are a modern dental treatment that is designed to transform the appearance of your smile in just a few steps, rather than through longer and more extensive treatments such as orthodontic therapy. Porcelain veneers and the related treatment, Lumineers, are made from ultra-thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth to hide a variety of imperfections, such as:
- Crooked teeth
- Oddly sized or shaped teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Permanent stains or discolorations
- Uneven wear and tear
- Small chips or cracks
- Asymmetrical teeth
Lumineers are much like porcelain veneers, but are even thinner. In many cases, patients who are getting Lumineers placed don’t need any tooth preparation done, which means that the treatment is considered reversible should you change your mind down the road.
Your smile transformation process
If you are interested in veneers, we will first talk with you about what you like and don’t like about your smile, the issues you want to address, and any questions you have about your options. If you and the dentist determine that porcelain veneers or Lumineers are the best choice for your needs and treatment preferences, we will create wax models to help design your veneers until both you and the dentist are satisfied with what the end results will look like. Then, we will then prepare your teeth as needed for the veneers or Lumineers to fit seamlessly within your smile, and place temporary veneers on your teeth while your final veneers are being fabricated. Once your veneers are ready, you come back in to the office where we try them on and make any minor adjustments necessary before permanently bonding them on to your teeth.
