Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers

City Dental Centre offers porcelain veneers in Surrey, BC. Porcelain dental veneers, also referred to as laminates, offer a relatively quick and easy option for smile enhancement.  Porcelain veneers can cover teeth that are stained, cracked, chipped, uneven or misaligned.  They are a great option for concealing dental imperfections, enhancing the color of teeth, closing gaps between teeth and correcting alignment without the need for orthodontics.

Porcelain veneers are constructed of a very thin layer of porcelain, about the thickness of a fingernail, which is permanently bonded to the front of a tooth.  Each dental porcelain veneer is custom-fabricated to fit your tooth, to match your natural tooth color, and to enhance your smile.

Porcelain Veneers Procedure

The procedure for applying porcelain veneers is relatively simple and requires two office visits.  First, the natural tooth to be covered by the veneer is carefully shaped and gently etched and an impression is made in order to create the customized dental veneer.  A temporary veneer will be placed on the tooth until the permanent one is ready. The procedure requires no anesthetic, although some patients prefer to have a local anesthetic administered.  For those that are nervous about the procedure, we also offer sleep sedation for porcelain veneer procedures to diminish anxiety.

When the porcelain veneer or veneers are ready, they are checked for proper size, shape and color and are then permanently bonded to the front of the teeth.  Once secured, porcelain veneers feel and look just like natural teeth.  If cared for properly, porcelain veneers can provide a long-term solution to cosmetic tooth enhancement.
