VeneersVeneers at Lakewood Dental Centre Read Transcript
The really good part about veneers is that they used to be kind of a limited treatment. They used to have a guarded prognosis. They are now one of the best treatments that we do for people who want to see changes in their smile. We can make spaces disappear. We can make—crooked teeth can be straight. We can make teeth that are short, longer. We can create a whole balance that doesn't exist without those types of options and choices. The veneers nowadays are very long-lasting and durable. As we explain to patients, they're as strong as your natural teeth. They're not indestructible, but they are as strong as your natural teeth. So for people that want to have that makeover and want to have those kinds of changes made, I can tell them that it's going to be durable, it's going to be long-lasting, it's going to be aesthetic, and it's going to probably last many, many years. So for those type of people that want that type of treatment, it's really a great option to have.
Dental veneers are thin pieces of material applied to your teeth that are shaped and styled to conceal flaws in the appearance of your smile. They are like getting several cosmetic dentistry treatments in one procedure. They can:
- Make discoloured teeth appear whiter
- Make slightly crooked teeth appear straighter
- Conceal small chips, cracks, and gaps
- Make uneven tooth enamel appear smooth
- Lengthen the look of “too short” teeth
Dr. McDermid at Lakewood Dental Centre in Winnipeg, MB took special training in esthetics at the New York Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He or Dr. Dhillon would be happy to see you in our office to discuss all the benefits of dental veneer. Schedule a consultation by calling (204) 977-8515.
Dental Veneers Are Like ‘Instant Orthodontics’
In addition to their versatility, dental veneer offers other benefits too. They are:
- Convenient. Depending on the type of veneer you choose, you can typically get them in just one or two visits to our office.
- Conservative. Dental veneer requires little alteration of your own teeth. Depending on the type of veneer you choose, we’ll remove a very small amount of enamel from your tooth to prepare it for a veneer.
- Easy to maintain. Dental veneer requires no special treatment after you receive them. You brush and floss your teeth as usual and visit our office for your six-month dental checkups. Continue to exercise caution when biting, however. Do not chew on ice or other hard things that could damage your dental veneer or your natural tooth beneath your veneer.
You Have 2 Dental Veneer Choices
Our office in Winnipeg, MB, Lakewood Dental Centre, can offer you two choices in dental veneers: porcelain dental veneer or e.max veneer. The primary difference is the amount of modification necessary to prepare your teeth for the veneer:
- Traditional porcelain dental veneer is strong and is well-known for their resemblance to natural, healthy teeth. They generally take two visits and do require some prep work on the enamel of your teeth for a secure fit.
- e.max dental veneer is thinner than a porcelain veneer, so they require little to no prep to the enamel of your teeth. You may be able to complete your e.max veneers procedure in a single visit.
No matter which option you choose, there will be a noticeable difference in your smile before and after veneers. Thanks to their training in esthetics, Dr. McDermid and Dr. Dhillon can help you select the veneers that will best suit your situation.
Both Dr. Doug McDermid and Dr. Rose Dhillon is a graduate of University of Manitoba Faculty of Dentistry, and they are one of the top-notch and trusted dentists in Winnipeg, MB.
