Dental Veneers in Brampton
Veneers are an attractive cosmetic treatment used to create smiles with straight, uniform, white teeth. Think of Hollywood’s perfect smiles, and chances are, they’re probably created with veneers. Virtually any type of correction can be made, from the spacing and size of the teeth to the colour and translucency. If you’re unhappy with your smile, talk to our dental professionals about whether veneers are right for you.
How Do Veneers Work?
Veneers are permanent coverings that attach to the front of your teeth. They’re made using porcelain or composite resin that looks like natural tooth material. Each veneer is shaped just for you based on current impressions of your teeth. In order for veneers to fit in your mouth, the affected teeth are ground down slightly in the front before the veneer is cemented directly to the tooth. Once veneers are installed, they are permanent, meaning if they break or wear down over time, they must be replaced. However, the material is highly durable, and veneers often last up to ten years or more.
Caring for Veneers
Because veneers are permanent, they require extra attention when it comes to oral care. The point where the veneer reaches the gum line is prone to collecting food and building up plaque. Careful brushing and regular flossing can help minimize tartar from accumulating, along with regular professional hygiene appointments. If a veneer cracks or begins to show visible wear over the years, it will need to be replaced. Our dentists will discuss the replacement timeline and costs with you so you are fully informed before making the decision to have veneers placed.
