Want to learn more dental procedures and the different types of dentistry? Meet Cochrane dentist, Dr. Gaganpreet Dhillon at Cochrane Rise Dental. We educate our patients with dentistry procedures so you know you’re in the right hands when it comes to having a beautiful smile.
One of the most popular and effective options for patients looking to improve their smile are veneer. These thin custom pieces of porcelain are applied to the front of your teeth to change their shape or color. Veneers are typically used on teeth with uneven surfaces, or teeth that are discolored, chipped, oddly shaped, crooked or unevenly spaced. Porcelain veneers can help mask the stains and chips on your teeth and also correct teeth misalignment.
The veneer process usually requires two visits because the veneers will be fabricated at a dental laboratory. At the first appointment the teeth are prepared, impressions taken, and the teeth are given a temporary covering. In two to three weeks the veneers are back from the laboratory, the temporaries are removed, and the veneers are bonded to the teeth.
Laboratory-fabricated veneers are usually made using porcelain or pressed ceramic and are very esthetic. Our doctor has vast experience in helping create attractive, natural-looking results with veneers. If you are interested in veneers or other cosmetic dentistry, please call Cochrane rise dental clinic for more information or to set up an appointment.
