The Process

The first step when considering dental veneers is making an initial consultation appointment at The Good Dentist. Your dentist will discuss your options and the best course of action moving forward. X-rays will often be taken to assess the health of the teeth and jaw. We will assess the health of the mouth’s gum tissue and your overall dental health. It is important to have a healthy foundation to work with before fitting veneers.

The next step, during the follow up appointment typically involves shaving down some of the enamel of the teeth that will be fitted with veneers. This ensures correct sizing and is important in getting the right fit. A mould will be taken of the teeth and then sent to a lab to help with the creation of the veneers.

The following appointment will be scheduled when your veneers have been crafted and ready to be placed. We’ll evaluate the fit, colour, shape and overall feel. This is followed by a thorough clean of your teeth to ensure no bacteria is trapped under the veneer and leads to nasty decay.

Once the teeth are clean and the surface of the tooth has been prepared, we use a binding material to cement the veneer to the tooth. The entire fitting procedure lasts approximately 2 hours.

After the new veneers have been fitted and you are feeling comfortable, you are then ready to head home with a brand-new smile.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Dental veneers are thin, tooth-coloured porcelain or composite resin layers fixed onto the front of your teeth that can correct teeth with gaps, that are stained, discoloured, broken or chipped, crowded-in or crooked, oddly-shaped or badly-aligned.

    Veneers are essentially a contact lense for the tooth or are sometimes likened to a false fingernail. They only cover the front surface of the tooth. In some cases a dental crown may be needed instead to give more strength and structure.

    Composite resin veneers can be added to your existing teeth in one visit. Any chips or cracks to composite resin veneers can be easily repaired. They are also cheaper than porcelain veneers.

    Porcelain veneers look natural, last longer and are stain resistant. However, if they crack or chip, the whole veneer must be replaced.

    Composite veneers are generally cheaper than porcelain veneers. However, costs will vary from patient to patient depending on the type of veneer you choose and the number of veneers you require. Estimated costs and options will be provided after a full assessment conducted during your initial consultation.

    Porcelain veneers are very durable and on average will last about 10 years, possibly much longer. It’s likely that composite veneers will need to be replaced much sooner than porcelain. Maintaining consistent and effective oral hygiene with twice yearly visits to the dentist for a clean and check-up will assist in your veneers lasting longer.

    The short answer is no. Our dental veneers are custom designed to fit over your natural teeth and suit your smile… a perfect fit. The veneers are bonded to your natural teeth with a composite resin that is not harmful to your natural teeth. Should a veneer fail, on the whole, composite veneers are remarkably easy to repair and replace as the composite resin can be added to and subtracted from. Porcelain veneers provide more of a challenge but there are always options to restore you to the smile that you deserve.
