Porcelain Veneers are a popular cosmetic procedure that can create a beautiful, bright and balanced smile. A highly trained Ottawa cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ami Barakat offers several options and varieties of porcelain veneers for a personalized smile makeover.
Porcelain veneers can help patients regain confidence in their smile, improving their quality of life.
Porcelain veneers are a permanent dental restoration that can be used to correct a range of cosmetic concerns. Veneers are like a thin ceramic shell that attaches to the front and sides of the tooth covering up cosmetic blemishes and help to protect the tooth from further damage.
A dental veneer is permanently bonded to a prepared tooth and can be used to treat one tooth or several teeth.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are great because they’re one of the most versatile dental restorations. They can take care of a wide variety of dental concerns. If you have teeth with multiple cosmetic issues, a veneer is ideal because it fully covers the entire front of your tooth.
Veneers are also considered a long-term restoration. They last longer than things like dental bonding or tooth whitening treatments. Because of the material veneers are made out of, they’re stain-resistant as well. They can hold up for longer periods of time, even when you’re drinking coffee or consuming other staining foods and beverages.
Veneers can even help assist with bite problems. When veneers are there and you have a smooth, even smile, your bite comes together the way it should. You can avoid chipping or cracking more teeth or the veneers due to pressure being distributed unevenly. Issues with TMJ disorders are also helped by having a bite where your upper and lower teeth come together properly.
Made from an ultra-thin high quality ceramic, porcelain veneers cover the front of the tooth, masking cosmetic concerns. Dental veneers are custom-designed to fit precisely over your teeth for a natural and comfortable smile.
The ultra-thin porcelain reflects light like natural teeth do, so your veneer will blend beautifully with your natural smile. Veneers are durable, stain resistant and designed to be a permanent dental restoration. With proper oral hygiene and dental care they can last for many years.
Dr. Barakat will prepare the teeth that will be treated by removing a thin layer of tooth enamel. Then, impressions will be made of the prepared teeth. Dr. Barakat will work with you to choose the right colour, size, and shape for a natural and beautiful result.
Then, the final design will be finalized and sent to Classic Labs for fabrication. You may be fitted with a set of temporary veneers while your final restoration is being created.
Once fabricated, the permanent veneers are adhered to your teeth using a special bonding agent. Once adhered, the veneers are ready to use and will provide instant results. Patients will enjoy a beautiful smile makeover that will enhance their natural smile.

Your dentist will custom design veneers to blend seamlessly with your natural smile. Once complete, you will be able to enjoy a beautiful smile for many years to come.
Dental veneers are a permanent cosmetic dental restoration that can both improve the aesthetics and the health of your smile. Exact cost will depend on the number, size and location of your veneers.
