Renew your Smile with Veneers
Conceal your imperfections with porcelain veneers and address cosmetic concerns with just a single treatment. Veneers are strong, thin pieces of ceramic or porcelain that are bonded to the teeth and are able to repair cracked, chipped, decayed or stained teeth. Veneers may also correct slightly crowded or overlapping teeth. Our team at Sheppard Village Dental is able to use veneers to create a smile that compliments your features, renews your self-confidence and will leave you feeling better than ever. Book your consultation now to discover if veneers are the right fit for you.
Candidates for Dentures
Did you know that around one quarter or adults over the age of 65 are missing all of their teeth? Dentures are a common and respectable solution to missing teeth. They are so dependable and natural-looking that you’ve probably spoken to someone with dentures and didn’t even know it. Do you think you might be a good candidate for dentures? To be a good candidate for this restorative treatment you should:
Wish to replace several or all of your teeth. There are alternative solutions available if you wish to replace just one or two teeth.
Have a healthy jawbone. After you lose a tooth, your jawbone will slowly become thin and less able to support a denture-- especially an implant-supported denture.
Be ready to take good care of your dentures at home and with routine cleanings and checkups!
The Process To Place Veneers
Placing veneers typically takes two to three trips to the dentist – one for a consultation and the other two to make and apply the veneers. At Sheppard Village Dental we only utilize the highest standard laboratory for the fabrication of all of our work.
Veneers offer the following advantages:
✓ They provide a natural tooth appearance
✓ Gum tissue tolerates porcelain well
✓ Porcelain veneers are stain resistant
✓ The colour of a porcelain veneer can be selected
✓ Veneers generally don’t require extensive shaping
✓ Veneers offer a strong alternative to crowns
Diagnosis and Treatment Planning
During your first visit, we will discuss the new shape and look of what we are going to accomplish by placing the new veneer. Once we have a plan in place, we will carefully prepare the teeth for the placement of new veneers. At Sheppard Village Dental we offer a dental diagnostic wax-up which will allow you to see a model of what your teeth will look like once your veneers are placed.
Taking Teeth Impressions
The next step is to take an impression of the teeth. The impression will then be sent to our laboratory for the final product to be fabricated. This can take between 7 – 10 days. While the new veneers are being fabricated at the lab, we will provide you with a beautiful temporary solution to wear in the meantime.
After the veneers are finalized, we will make every effort to ensure that your new veneers feel just like your natural teeth. Your comfort and satisfaction are our top priorities. Once you feel comfortable, we will bond your veneers in place so that you can enjoy your new smile for many years to come.
A porcelain veneer is a layer of porcelain placed over a tooth that is able to improve the aesthetic of a smile and protect the tooth’s surface from damage. Veneers offer a variety of solutions and are here to improve your smile.
Composite bonding is most often used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of discolored or chipped teeth. The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth.
There are pros and cons to both porcelain veneers and composite bonding. During your consultation, we will discuss the solution best for you.
Ultimately, it is up to you to decide how many veneers you need. You may wish to get veneers just on the teeth which are most visible when you smile or you may wish to have them all done. The decision is yours but we will be here to give you advice every step of the way.
The length of the process depends on how many teeth need veneers or bonding and how complex your solution is.
