Is your confidence affected by a discolored or damaged smile? At the dental practice of Dr. Guri S. Dhaliwal DMD, our team can restore a radiant shine to your smile by designing and matching you with dental veneers. Dr. Dhaliwal offers dental veneers to help correct a wide range of imperfections, such as gaps, chips, stains, and teeth misalignment. We custom-fit veneers to achieve amazing results that look and feel natural.
Composite and Porcelain Dental Veneers
Veneers are a popular cosmetic procedure that can significantly improve your smile, overall appearance, and confidence. Dental veneers are ultra-thin shells of composite resin or porcelain bonded over the front of teeth to create an aesthetically-pleasing smile and to protect the tooth surface from damage. The entire process can generally be completed in as little as two appointments, and only a minimal amount of tooth structure must be removed to properly adhere the veneer to the surface. The color of the porcelain can be custom made to match your other teeth, ensuring a natural look.
Benefits of Dental Veneers
Immediately after a dental veneers procedure, patients notice numerous benefits, including a natural, beautiful smile. Instantly, the color, shape, and position of teeth improve. Changes can even be seen in teeth that are chipped, poorly shaped, broken, permanently stained, or contain unsightly fillings.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
Fitted veneers usually last for many years, but like your natural teeth, they must be well cared for to prevent chipping or breaking. Porcelain is also highly resistant to stains, including those from tea, coffee, soft drinks, and smoking.
Maintenance of Dental Veneers
By taking some preventative measures, you can easily keep your dental veneers clean, white, and damage free. Maintaining good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing twice a day is the first step towards keeping your veneers in good condition. It’s also important to avoid biting into hard foods or objects, such as nuts, and to avoid foods and drinks that can cause staining. To prevent potential damage, wear a mouth guard when engaging in contact sports.
Who is a Good Candidate for Veneers?
Most people interested in concealing a cosmetic flaw on their teeth are suitable candidates for dental veneers. However, teeth should be fully grown before receiving veneers. The ideal candidate is someone who has healthy teeth without serious decay issues, gum disease, cracked teeth, or gingivitis. The patient should have adequate tooth enamel and have cosmetic tooth problems that they would like hidden, such as stains, chips, or mild alignment issues. During a complimentary consultation, our team can explore all options to help you decide if this procedure is right for you.
