Composite Veneers

One of the greatest advantages of the dental veneers treatment is that it allows us to treat multiple dental concerns at once. If patients have a number of problems, for example, discolouration and uneven, oddly shaped teeth as well as perhaps a small gap between the two front teeth, veneers will be able to transform the appearance of the whole smile.

Did you know that dental veneers are a conservative way of completely making over your smile? In fact, veneers are a go-to cosmetic procedure that has become popular with celebrities who want a brighter and more symmetrical smile. Miley Cyrus, Hilary Duff and Ben Affleck are just some of Hollywood’s elite who have seen a cosmetic dentist for veneers. Fortunately, affordability and accessibility make it easy for anyone to get dental veneers.

Veneers can help you if you have gaps between your teeth or teeth that are broken, chipped, irregularly shaped or misaligned. To find out more about whether dental veneers are right for you, call River Dental to schedule a consultation.

Before dental veneers can be placed on the teeth, the surface of the teeth must be prepared for bonding. After administering a local anesthetic, your dentist will buff away approximately half a millimeter from the surface of the teeth. You’ll then bite into a mold that will be used to form your veneers in our dental lab. When the veneers are ready, we will reschedule an appointment to have them fitted, bonded and adjusted for shape and color.
There is no special care required for dental veneers, and normal brushing and flossing can be resumed immediately. Because veneers are usually placed over the course of two appointments, it is normal to experience some sensitivity between the first and second visit when the teeth have been reduced in preparation for bonding.

The most commonly used correction methods include veneers and bonding. These options present durable, cost effective alternatives to more expensive crowns and involve bonding a porcelain or resin material to a damaged tooth. The restoration is then sculpted and polished to the desired shape. These methods can be used to fill in cracks, even out chips, or build up worn down teeth. They can also be used to close gaps or disguise discoloured teeth that do not respond well to whitening procedures.

Direct bonding is a relatively straight forward though precise procedure that can usually be accomplished in a single visit. Indirect veneers are custom made and thus stronger and longer lasting, but the process requires more time and more than one appointment. Caring for either bonded teeth or veneers will still require good oral hygiene at home and regular examinations by your dentist.
