Do you find yourself deliberately hiding or shielding your smile? Chips, stains, spaces and cracks can make us feel embarrassed. Dental veneers are strong, esthetic, ultra-thin restorations that can make a dramatic difference to your appearance. Our team of dentists offers different veneers, including composite and porcelain veneers.
How Veneers Help Restore Your Smile
Veneers in New Westminster, BC have a number of versatile uses and can be used to fix several cosmetic flaws. Here’s a closer look at the benefits of having veneers:
They Correct Small Chips and Cracks – Even minor cosmetic issues can show up when we talk or smile. Our dentists at Asante Dental Centre place veneers to mask minor chips in the front teeth. If the tooth is severely damaged, cracked, or broken, it may need a crown instead of a veneer.
Veneers Require Minimal Removal of Enamel – Unlike crowns that cover a larger portion of your tooth, veneers cover only the front and top surface. This is why we only need to file down less enamel.
Veneers Can Close Spaces Between Teeth – Veneers are ideal for patients with smaller teeth and spacing between them who do not want to get braces.
Veneers Can Mask Dark or Discoloured Teeth – Sometimes discoloured teeth may not respond well to teeth whitening procedures and remain dark. Veneers can be bonded on top of these teeth to help mask the discolouration.
IIf you’re considering getting a smile makeover or have one front tooth that is preventing you from smiling, please contact our friendly dentists at Asante Dental Centre to find out about the best solution for your needs.
Caring for Dental Veneers
With regular and thorough care, veneers can last for a long time without chipping or staining. Porcelain veneers offer excellent aesthetics and durability compared to resin ones. However, composite resin veneers can be repaired by our dentists here in the dental office. If the porcelain veneers are damaged, they may need to be replaced.
Chewing on hard foods may cause chipping, and heavy consumption of wine, tea, and coffee can stain the veneers. Our dentists in New Westminster, BC will evaluate your teeth and take x-rays, if needed, to determine the best way to restore any broken, misshapen or stained teeth.
