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.
Cosmetic Concerns for Dental Veneers
- Discoloured teeth
- Gap teeth
- Broken, cracked, or chipped teeth
- Crooked teeth
Dental Veneers What to Expect
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 color, 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.
