A PICTURE PERFECT SMILE WITH
What are Porcelain Veneers?
To cosmetically repair worn, stained, crooked and discolored teeth quickly, porcelain dental veneers have the most natural look. Porcelain dental veneers are custom-made shells designed to cover the front surface of the tooth improving appearance.
Porcelain veneers are practically undetectable when bonded to teeth and have the strength and resistance of healthy tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers remain white and can resist stains from coffee, tea, and even cigarette smoke.
Before and After Veneers
Do Porcelain Veneers Look Natural?
Porcelain veneers are commonly mistaken for natural teeth, and they require little to no preparation. Veneers look the most natural out of all preferred tooth restoration options since the porcelain reflects light just like real tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers are even better than natural tooth enamel because they do not stain or wear, even years after the procedure, and they do not weaken the original tooth structure.
Dr. Robert Liu's dental clinic in Greely ON, Ottawa uses specialized techniques to improve porcelain veneer resiliency allowing you to enjoy a full range diet. Dr. Liu uses a long-lasting aesthetic cement to attach the veneers which increase their longevity. We create an exact match to the color of your natural teeth using natural porcelain. Dr. Liu has a variety of porcelain veneers to match your unique look and personality.
The Process of Porcelain Veneers
Our office prepares the teeth by taking impressions of your real smile to create custom porcelain veneers. Temporary veneers will be placed for approximately two weeks while the custom veneers are produced in our lab. Custom veneers are personally handmade by individuals in our lab instead of a machine. After the custom veneers return from our lab, they are bonded to the teeth and guaranteed for a full five years after insertion with regular oral health maintenance.
Are Porcelain Veneers Just like Regular Teeth?
Porcelain veneers need some special care and precaution. They are not recommended for people who grind their teeth or suffer from severe bite problems. Porcelain veneers can become compromised by nail-biting or opening objects with your teeth. Porcelain veneers will easily continue to look brand new with a regular home cleaning system.
How Much Do Porcelain Veneers Cost?
Porcelain veneer treatments average six veneers. To learn more about our full treatment specifics and options, review our Dentistry Guide to full treatment details, costs, before and after pictures, and more.
Will Porcelain Veneers Alter the Structure of my Teeth?
Lumineers are like porcelain veneers but even thinner. This thin material is carefully placed over your existing teeth and does not affect the original tooth structure.
