Porcelain veneers toronto
Your white and beautiful teeth serve a higher purpose than aesthetics. It defines your beautiful smile and identity and can also influence your self-esteem and confidence. If you lose your charming smile due to chips, cracks, or wear and tear, porcelain veneers can restore it. But what is porcelain veneer, how does it protect smiles, and how much do porcelain veneers cost in Toronto?
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are super-thin, custom-made shells designed to correct minor defects in tooth enamel and alignment. These tooth-shaped shells are made from porcelain and used in cosmetic dentistry in Toronto to restore authentic smiles. They can change the size of small teeth, color, shape, or length of your teeth, improving your appearance. But not all cosmetic dentists in Toronto use porcelain veneers. Some dentists use dental veneers made from resins and other tooth-colored materials. However, porcelain is durable, stain-resistant, and mimics the properties of natural teeth better than resin. You will need to discuss with your Toronto dentist the best procedure to improve your smile.
What can Porcelain Veneers Fix?
While porcelain veneers can restore authentic smiles, they are cosmetic improvements and cannot correct complex dental problems or orthodontic issues. They cover defects on your teeth like chips or cracks. You can also rely on porcelain veneers to fix discolored teeth due to root canal treatment, drugs-related stains, excessive fluoride, and fillings. This dental procedure is also recommended for misaligned, worn down, irregularly shaped, or uneven teeth. Your Toronto dentist can prescribe the best veneering process to address noticeable defects and improve your appearance.
Steps of the Porcelain Veneer Procedure
When it comes to porcelain veneers, there is no one-fits-all solution. For starters, it should mimic your tooth’s unique light-reflecting properties. The innovative Toronto Smile Design Clinic fulfill this requirement using a state-of-the-art dentistry process known as Digital Smile Design. Here are the four main steps of the Digital Smile Design procedure for porcelain veneers:
Step 1: Consultation and documentation for Smile Makeover
This first appointment allows your dentist to examine your teeth and acquire documentation, such as pictures, videos, and impressions. The information is analyzed and applied to design your new smile. You can use this appointment to inform your cosmetic dentist in Toronto what you are trying to achieve. Your insights and the results of the analysis will guide the entire Smile Design process.
Step 2: Test-Drive Your Smile
While other dentists jump straight to trimming and preparation, Toronto Smile Design Clinic goes a step further to guarantee perfection. Your dentist designs a prototype and applies it to your mouth using provisional materials. It offers you a unique opportunity to test-drive your smile to ensure you’re satisfied with the transformation before making a final decision. If you don’t like the test drive, you can walk away with no strings attached! This "test-drive experience" in the Digital Smile Design process shows the final smile transformation with a before-and-after setup. It guarantees your satisfaction before you start the veneering process.
Step 3: Preparation for Your Smile
Your veneers should look as natural as possible to restore your smile. However, most dentists use traditional color-matching guides, which are prone to errors. Toronto Smile Design is obsessed with perfection and relies on digital dentistry approaches to design new smiles. Your dentist uses your "Smile Design" to fabricate customized porcelain veneers to improve your smile and appearance.
Step 4: Bonding and follow-up
Another advantage of Digital Smile Design is that it lays the foundation for success from the start. Conventional dentists do additional trimming and several adjustments during bonding to ensure the veneer fits on the tooth. With Digital Smile Design, you get custom-made dental veneers with the perfect fit and shade. So, you’ll need minimal to zero adjustments during bonding. Your dentist will clean and polish the tooth before cementing the porcelain veneer on the surface. You’ll need to make one final follow-up visit after a few weeks for your dentist to check the placement and your gums.
Digital Smile Design offers you tons of benefits and guarantees satisfaction with your new smile. This state-of-the-art digital dentistry procedure sets Toronto Smile Design apart from other clinics.
Porcelain Veneer Aftercare
To protect your smile, maintain proper resin veneers aftercare. You should avoid stain-causing foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, and red wine if you have resin veneers. In porcelain veneers, there is no food restrictions because they are stain-resistant.
How much do veneers cost Toronto?
On average, porcelain veneer in Toronto ranges from $1200 to $1500 + Lab Fees per tooth. But you cannot put a price on your charming smile, right? High-quality dental veneers delivered by the Digital Smile Design procedure last more than 10 years. You can increase its lifespan to 15 or 20 years by maintaining oral hygiene and proper aftercare.
