Dental Veneers in New Westminster
Veneers are often described as tooth-coloured shells that are applied to the outer side of the teeth to improve their appearance. Depending on why you need veneers, your dentist may use one or many veneers to change the shape, size, colour, or spacing of your teeth. They may also be used to cosmetically repair chipped or damaged teeth.
How Veneers Work
Veneers are extremely thin and are custom created to fit over the outer side of your tooth or teeth (the visible side). Acting like a cover, each veneer is fitted to your tooth. Depending on the type of veneers you choose and the shape and size of your teeth, a portion of the natural tooth enamel may need to be removed to accommodate the veneer. This will occur in the first appointment, after which your dentist will take a mold of your prepped teeth and send them to the dental laboratory where your veneers will be created. During your second appointment, the veneers will be fitted and firmly cemented into place.
Why Choose Dental Veneers?
Patients choose veneers for many reasons, including the cost-effective cosmetic outcome and the simplicity of their application, which is very non-invasive compared to some other cosmetic and restorative options. With excellent dental hygiene care, a veneer may last up to or beyond ten years before requiring replacement.
