What Are Veneers?

Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain, ceramic, or resin-based composite, bonded to the front of your teeth. They are a popular cosmetic dental solution known for their durability and versatility, perfect for addressing various aesthetic concerns, including, including:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Chipped, cracked or broken teeth
  • Discolouration that cannot be corrected with teeth whitening
  • Misaligned or uneven teeth
  • Severely worn teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth

Veneers are a permanent solution, bonded to your teeth and only replaceable, not removable. Treat them like your natural teeth: brush twice daily, floss at least once a day, and visit us for annual dental exams and cleanings to maintain your beautiful smile.

With proper care, veneers can last 10-15 years. To maintain their beauty, avoid hard, sticky, or chewy foods. If a veneer chips or a cavity forms underneath, it may need to be replaced. Regular dental check-ups will help keep your smile looking its best.

Types of Veneers

Veneers can be made from ceramic, porcelain, or composite resin. We’ll recommend the best option for you based on your teeth’s condition and your budget, ensuring you achieve a beautiful smile.

Ceramic veneers, such as IPS Empress, are incredibly durable and provide an excellent colour matching system. At Promontory Heights Dental, we use IPS empress for veneers as well as other dental solutions inlays and onlays.

The Veneer Procedure

The veneer procedure differs according to which material is being used. Porcelain and ceramic veneers typically require two sessions to apply, while composite resin veneers can be applied in a single session. 

After numbing the area with a local anesthetic, we apply the resin in thin layers, hardening each one with a special lamp. Once the final layer is set, we shape and polish your veneer to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, giving you a flawless, beautiful smile.

During your first appointment, our dentist will administer a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort and help you remain comfortable during your procedure.

After numbing your tooth, we’ll remove a thin enamel layer and take a mold to create your custom, seamless veneer.

After taking these impressions, we may fit you with a set of temporary veneers to protect the surface of your teeth while your permanent veneers are being made.

During your second appointment, we’ll replace your temporary veneers with permanent ones using safe composite resin cement. We’ll ensure the fit is perfect and make any final adjustments for your beautiful smile.
