Stubborn discoloration, chips, and irregularly shaped teeth may impact your confidence, but the concerns can all be treated with just one procedure.
Dr. Patrick Casey at Smile Montreal works with a world-renowned ceramist to offer porcelain veneers that are virtually identical to natural teeth.
Imagine sharing your smile without hesitation...
Porcelain veneers are designed to conceal minor dental imperfections and improve the overall appearance of your smile. Drs. Charles and Patrick Casey can use veneers to hide stains, chips, gaps and other blemishes for a completely natural-looking enhancement. Our caring, attentive, and unique approach to the initial consultation will allow you to take an active role in designing your new veneers. We believe that your goals combined with our expertise can result in a beautiful smile that helps you look and feel your absolute best. To learn more about how you can benefit from porcelain veneers, contact our Montreal, QC, practice and schedule a consultation.
Porcelain veneers are an excellent solution for most patients who wish to conceal minor imperfections that do not compromise oral health. However, patients with sparse enamel, severely misaligned teeth, or bruxism (involuntary teeth grinding), may not be candidates for porcelain veneers. Our doctors will conduct an in-depth evaluation of your smile to determine if veneers are right for you.
Our partner ceramist is world-renowned for creating beautiful, natural-looking porcelain veneers.
The process of placing porcelain veneers takes place during two separate appointments with about one to two weeks of time in between. After you and your dentist discuss your goals and finalize a treatment plan, the first step is to remove a small amount of tooth enamel to make room for the veneer. For example, if your veneers are .5mm thick, the dentist will remove about .5mm of enamel. This preparation allows your veneers to lay flush with surrounding tooth surfaces for a natural appearance. During this step, your dentist will use a local anesthetic to maintain your comfort.
The next step involves taking impressions of your teeth. These impressions are used to manufacture your veneers. We will send the impressions to our partner ceramist, a world-renowned veneer technician, who will create premium veneers tailored to your exact aesthetic goals. Your veneers will look totally natural in terms of shape, size, and color.
Our ceramist provides very reliable and consistently exceptional veneers with a fast turnaround time of about two weeks. In the meantime, our team will provide you with a set of temporary veneers. We will schedule your second appointment when your permanent veneers arrive. Once we make sure your new veneers meet your expectations, we will attach them to your teeth using a strong dental adhesive. Finally, your dentist will make any fine adjustments necessary to ensure a comfortable bite.
Porcelain veneer treatment carries very few risks, but some patients can experience greater dental sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. With proper care, veneers can last many years, but they do not last forever. In order to experience the longest-lasting benefits of this treatment, patients should avoid biting or chewing hard or sticky foods with their veneers, brush and floss twice a day, and maintain a schedule of biannual checkups.
Enjoy the Many Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
When you choose an experienced dentist to place your veneers, the treatment can provide many benefits. Aside from the upgraded physical appearance of your new smile, patients usually experience increased confidence and an overall happier outlook, making veneers a rewarding investment.
The benefits of porcelain veneers are numerous. The custom-crafted ceramic shells are highly lifelike. After your dentist attaches them to your teeth, they can conceal many different aesthetic concerns. Your dentist can also combine the procedure with other treatments to give you the smile you have always wanted. To learn more about the benefits of porcelain veneers, contact Smile Montreal and schedule a consultation today.
Our dentists work with a world-renowned ceramist to ensure the most lifelike results possible for your veneers. Dr. Charles and Dr. Patrick Casey also pay great attention to detail during the porcelain veneers procedure. After reshaping your teeth to make room for the porcelain, they will take precise impressions. Our partner technician will use these molds, along with advanced dental materials to craft your veneers. Because each member of our team will work with great precision, your veneers will be customized to blend seamlessly with your features. The state-of-the-art porcelain will even have a slight translucence. As a result, the veneers will sparkle and reflect light like your natural teeth.
No other cosmetic treatment offers the same versatility as porcelain veneers. Because they are bonded directly on top of your teeth, they can mask a broad range of problems. Veneers can be a good solution for:
- Stains, particularly internal stains that do not respond to teeth whitening
- Chips and cracks
- Worn or irregular teeth
- Small gaps and minor misalignment
The cost of porcelain veneers is usually higher than the cost of alternative treatments. However, without veneers, you might need much more extensive care. Therefore, this treatment can be an affordable and wise investment in your smile.
Convenient Care with Lasting Results
Another benefit of porcelain veneers is that the treatment is very convenient. Typically, Dr. Patrick or Dr. Charles Casey can achieve a complete smile transformation in just two office visits. Additionally, veneers are very easy to care for, and you will simply need to maintain your regular dental hygiene. You should brush twice a day and floss daily. You should also visit the dentist at least twice a year for your exams and professional cleanings. Finally, you will need to avoid bad habits that could place undue pressure on your teeth. For example, biting your nails or using your teeth to open packages can crack your veneers or cause the porcelain to come off. When you take care of your teeth and practice good hygiene, your stunning smile can last for a decade or even longer.
Customized for You
Your veneers will be custom designed and fabricated to match your smile. You can also combine veneers will other treatments in a comprehensive and individualized smile makeover. Your dentist will help you select the right procedures, considering your budget, as well as your treatment goals. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular treatments to include with veneers. You could also select filling replacement, gum contouring, or bonding, among others.
