Veneers

Veneers

Veneers are routinely used to cover teeth which are discolored, worn, chipped, or misaligned. Veneers are used for many of the same reasons as bonding but they involve a different procedure. If you are looking for a dentist in Toronto to find a solution for worn or misaligned teeth, giveMidtown Dental Studio a call at (416) 481-7887 and DR. MARCELA ORTEGA / DR. CRISTINA IONESCU can help you find an affordable solution such as Veneers.

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or resin that measure less than 1.5mm thickness. First, DR. MARCELA ORTEGA / DR. CRISTINA IONESCU will prepare your tooth and then take an impression of the prepared tooth, possibly place a temporary filling in the space, and send the impression to a dental laboratory to have the veneers manufactured.

The veneer is then cemented into place. Although veneers are more expensive and time-consuming than bonding, they are less expensive and conserve tooth structure when compared to crowns.

Typically veneers are difficult to stain, making veneers a very popular solution for many people seeking that perfect smile. Strong and very durable, veneers last from ten to fifteen years, and come in colors that will brighten dark teeth without the worry of them changing colour.

How to Make Your Veneers Last Longer

Veneers are not meant to be permanent or maintenance free. However, by treating them well you can get the most out of them. You’ve made the investment in your teeth and appearance, why not protect them and make sure you the most from your money. Here are a few tips on proper care of veneers.

  • Practice Good Oral Hygiene – Brushing at least two times a day can help prevent stains or discolorations. Flossing once daily helps prevent plaque from building up. And visiting your dentist annually for a checkup and cleaning will help protect your teeth.
  • Wear Mouth Guards – If you play sports, always wear a mouth guard. A single hard impact to the facial area can crack or chip veneers.
  • Don’t Use Your Teeth like a Tool – We are all guilty of using our teeth to loosen knots or to try to cut something. This is very dangerous. It invites germs, and can easily chip a veneer.
  • Deal with Teeth Grinding – If you grind your teeth, or clench them tightly while you sleep, discuss it with your dentist. Grinding your teeth can crack veneers and cause them to not last as long.
