What are veneers?

Veneers is a cosmetic dentistry procedure whereby thin tooth moulds of porcelain or composite material are permanently installed over the top of the teeth. The main attraction of veneers is their ability to enhance the look of a particular part of your smile forever. Many patients seek the veneers treatment to fix imperfections and misalignments of their upper anterior teeth.

Veneers are a popular cosmetic treatment that patients regularly seek out because they are much less expensive than crowns and provide the same cosmetic enhancement for that perfect smile.

When is a veneer needed, and what are the risks of not getting it done?

Veneers are needed for patients who want to fix an imperfection or misalignment in their teeth to get their desired smile. They are thin moulds of porcelain or composite material designed to cover and improve the appearance of your smile.

How is done?

  1. First, the dentist will need to make room for the veneer by removing a small amount of enamel from the buccal surfaces of the teeth in question for the veneer.
  2. Second, we will use our iTero digital imaging software to take the most accurate impressions for your veneers. They will sent to a dental laboratory immediately to be manufactured.
  3. While the dental laboratory manufactures your veneers, the dentist will give you temporary veneers to wear for approximately 1-2 weeks.
  4. Finally, we invite you back to Riverpark Dental when we receive the permanent veneers from the lab. We will make sure you are completely satisfied with the appearance of your veneers before swapping them out with your temporary ones.
