How Can Porcelain Veneers Change Your Smile?

Updated: 5 days ago

Although an imperfect smile is not life-threatening, it can undermine your confidence. To protect your social life, get rid of that imperfect smile. You can rely on porcelain veneers to eliminate the imperfections and improve your smile.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are super-thin porcelain shells placed on the front side of teeth to cover visible defects. They are custom-made to fit over your teeth, conceal flaws, and improve your smile. Unlike other dental care procedures, dental veneers can hide imperfections without undermining smile authenticity. How? Because custom-made porcelain veneers are indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Can porcelain veneers change your smile?

Yes, they can! Custom-made porcelain veneers blend with natural teeth by mimicking the colour and light-reflecting properties. To achieve this, innovative clinics leverage Digital Smile Design (DSD). With DSD, your Toronto cosmetic dentist will:

  • Analyze your teeth using digital imaging tools.

  • Create a custom smile design.

  • Create a custom treatment plan.

  • Customize your porcelain veneers to match the colour and shape of your teeth.

  • Use a digital mock-up to visualize the outcome or allow you to test-drive prototypes before you start your treatment.

This cosmetic dentistry procedure guarantees your satisfaction before veneers are permanently bonded to your front teeth. Your dentist will use temporary veneers to protect your teeth while you wait for the lab to fabricate your custom veneers. By combining DSD with veneering, your dentist can deliver a transformational smile makeover.

Of course, you’ll need temporary crowns to protect your teeth while you wait for permanent crowns. But dental veneers are more suitable and more minimally invasive than crowns for smile makeovers.
