    What Exactly Is A Dental Veneer?

    A dental veneer is a shell, or layer of tooth-coloured porcelain or composite. It is placed over the front surface of your teeth to fix worn teeth, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, discolouration and chips or cracks. A crown is like a veneer, but covers the full circumference and biting surface of a tooth.

    Although veneers and crowns fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry, because they create bright, white smiles with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth, they also protect the surface of damaged teeth and may eliminate the need for more extensive treatments. Other benefits include durability, an improved smile and often protection to the underlying tooth from biting forces when broken down.

    4 Reasons Why You Would Need A Veneer

    Regardless of what causes unattractive teeth, den- tal veneers and crowns may solve most, or even all of your cosmetic dental issues, including:

    1) Worn enamel: Over time, the thin, hard translu- cent substance covering your teeth (enamel) may become worn, dulled and discoloured. Such wear and discolouration may be natural or result from a genetic predisposition. However, it often results from consuming soft drinks; tea and coffee; smok- ing; using certain medications, etc.

    2) Wear and tear: Teeth naturally wear down as people age. Aged teeth are more likely to have chips, cracks or a generally uneven appearance.

    3) Genetics: Certain people are born with abnormal spacing between their teeth that widens with age.

    4) Uneven teeth: Uneven teeth can result from tooth grinding or general wear and tear.

    Are You Suitable For Veneers?

    The removal of any natural tooth structure is permanent, so today, cosmetic dentists prefer to offer patients the most minimally invasive options first. If your natural teeth are functionally and aesthetically adequate, veneers or crowns may not be an appro- priate treatment for you.

    However, if you have severely dull or discoloured teeth you may be a good candidate for veneers. They are clinically proven to be long-lasting and enhance the appearance of the lips, smile and other facial features that are better supported by properly shaped teeth. To determine if you are a candidate for dental veneers or crowns, your dentist will schedule a preliminary consultation during which your oral health will be evaluated and all available treatment options discussed.

    Treatment involving tooth preparation is irreversible, so your dentist will discuss any alternatives that provide the same results, but with minimal to no removal of tooth structure. If you and your dentist decide that veneers or crowns are the best option, the next step involves a thorough review of treatment details, including preparing your teeth for your specific procedure and what will be necessary for them to look and fit correctly.

    Finally, during your consultation you will actively participate in the ‘smile design pro- cess’. Sharing your preferences for the shape, length, width and colour of the restora- tion, and the change in the appearance of your smile that you want your dentist to cre- ate, helps ensure that your treatment will meet your expectations. It is important that your dentist understands your objectives when undergoing a veneers procedure.

    The Treatment – What To Expect

    The dental veneer and crown procedure can often be completed in 2 visits over the course of 2-6 weeks. The visits are comprehensive and may require a few hours of ex- amination and tooth preparation. We boast amenities that include sedation dentis- try, and audio/visual equipment to keep you entertained during the procedure.

    The diagnostic and examination phase of treatment is essential and identifies any oral health concerns that must first be addressed before restoration placement. We will also work with you to select the best tooth colour for you from a special shade chart.

    Imaging technologies can provide you with a preview of your expected results, and ‘before and after’ images provide opportunity to view other successful cases. Treat- ment begins when the examination is completed and the customised plan designed.


    There are several steps in the procedure. First, your dentist will likely administer a lo- cal anaesthetic so you will be comfortable during tooth preparation and placement of the veneer or crown. Your natural tooth is then prepared by minimally reshaping it with a small handheld rotational cutting device, called a bur, to provide the best fit.

    Once the correct preparation has been completed your dentist will make an impression of your teeth from which a mould of your mouth will be made. This impression may be sent to an outside dental laboratory where the veneers will be professionally made.

    Once a mould is taken your veneers

    can then be professionally created

    Previewing Your New Crowns & Veneers

    Prototype veneers and crowns provide a preview of the expected outcome. If your treatment involves one or a couple of teeth, and enough enamel remains on the sur- face, your dentist may forgo the temporary process.

    However, after your teeth are shaped they may be slightly more sensitive to hot and cold due to the loss of enamel during tooth prepa- ration.

    Increased sensitivity may also occur if you have temporaries placed, and for a brief time following placement of the final restoration.

    During the placement appointment, your dentist will remove the prototypes and place your final restorations, after which they will be evaluated and adjusted to ensure the optimal fit and colour.

    Maintaining Your Veneers & Crowns

    Veneers and crowns are durable and have been shown to last for many years before requiring replacement. Seeing your dentist and hygienist for regular examinations and dental cleanings is essential for maintaining the health of your mouth and longevity of your restorations.

    Aftercare is extremely important. Chipped or fractured porcelain veneers can rarely satisfactorily be repaired, so your dentist will advise you of the costs and added time associated with replacing a damaged restoration.

    To reduce the risk of damage, do not bite or chew on hard objects such as nutshells or bones, and do not use your teeth to open or tear packages. Your dentist may advise you to avoid certain foods that could cause damage.

    Brush and floss your teeth as you normally would, and be sure to use a non-abrasive toothpaste. Because veneers are highly polished, the risk of staining them with food or drink after the procedure is complete is greatly reduced. However, brushing after drinking red wine, coffee, tea or soda is
