Porcelain Veneers

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Chances are, that you picked up this brochure because you are curious about Porcelain Veneers and how they can improve your smile. Impressions Dental Centres is pleased to offer patients this innovative breakthrough in cosmetic dentistry.

Porcelain Veneers are a thin, semi-translucent “shell” permanently bonded to your teeth. While they are not suitable for every patient, veneers are a cosmetic alternative for a variety of dental conditions of the front teeth, including:


A - Veneers
B - Composite Resin

Advantages And Benefits Of Porcelain Veneers

At one time, resin fillings or crowns were the only available treatment for these conditions. Today, a third alternative is available.

There are many benefits and advantages to having porcelain veneers placed on your front teeth, including:

  • Only a small amount of tooth structure (if any) is removed during the procedure

  • A healthy “natural” look is achieved with little or no discomfort

How Veneers Differ From Fillings And Crowns

A composite resin filling may be used when only a small amount of tooth structure needs replacement. A porcelain veneer is indicated when a portion of the front surface of the tooth needs a “face lift”.

A full crown is indicated when a tooth has had root canal treatment, or when a substantial amount of the entire tooth structure has been lost.

How Are The Veneers Actually Done?

Similar to a resin bonding procedure, veneers are attached directly to the existing tooth structure.

An impression will be taken to make an exact replica of your teeth. During your veneering appointment, your teeth will be etched with a mild acid solution.

When the actual veneers are applied, a tooth-coloured liquid bonding material is then applied. This helps the veneers adhere to your natural teeth.
