How Do Porcelain Veneers Work?
Porcelain veneers are comprised wafer-thin shells of porcelain material. These are carefully bonded to the front surface of the teeth in order to duplicate the translucent properties of natural tooth enamel. When done correctly, this can give you a perfect smile, which is as natural looking as it is charming.
Our dentists take great care to blend the veneers with your smile. They make sure that the colour of veneers is the same as the shade of the adjacent teeth. The goal is to see that the veneers blend in as seamlessly as possible with the smile.
The Porcelain Veneer Process at Westgate Dental Centre
The application of porcelain veneers is done in three stages.
Stage #1: Diagnosis and planning
Stage #2: Preparation
Stage #3: Bonding
The whole procedure will be completed in only three visits to our dental clinic in Maple Ridge. During your first visit, we will explain everything about the veneer process to you, so that there is no confusion of any sort. Our expert dentists will make personalized recommendations based on your specific requirements.
This is followed by the preparation of the teeth to accommodate the veneers. An impression of your teeth is taken and sent to the lab where the porcelain veneers are made. This is done during your second visit.
During the third visit, our expert dentists place the veneers carefully on the teeth, so that they are of the perfect fit and colour. Once this is done correctly, the veneers are bonded to the teeth with dental cement which acts as an adhesive. An LED beam is used to release the catalyst that initiates the hardening of the teeth. The third visit – which will be your final appointment – takes only 1 to 2 hours.
