Dental veneers are a cosmetic dental solution to restore minor teeth imperfections and improve the appearance of your smile. They are also used in smile makeovers if you want to straighten your teeth without the need for orthodontic braces or brighten your teeth in the most natural way.

With state-of-the-art dental technology and the most skilled smile artists, Midpark Dental offers patients dental veneers for the most picture-perfect smile transformation. Keep reading to learn more about this treatment.

What are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are ultra-thin, tooth-coloured shells that are bonded to the front surface of the teeth. Each veneer is custom-made to create a restoration that is carefully and uniquely designed for your smile needs. The shape, size, and colour can be adjusted to fit your ideal smile and create the most aesthetically appealing result.

Compared to other restorative options such as crowns, dental veneers are a highly conservative treatment. They require very minimal tooth structure to be removed. This means that your dentist can preserve as much natural tooth as possible to help maintain its strength.

Signs You Need Veneers

There are several reasons why your dentist may recommend veneers for your smile concerns. Some of the common signs are:

You are unhappy with your smile

Veneers are a great treatment choice if you want a smile overhaul. It may be that you are simply not happy with how it looks due to discolourations caused by aging or staining from cigarettes or food. It can also help if you have crooked teeth and you want to fix that but do not want to have braces. Smile makeovers with veneers can help achieve a beautiful smile transformation.

You have a cracked, broken, or misshapen tooth

If you have a minor damage on your tooth, veneers can help fix that. Because veneers are customizable, your dentist can create a single unit of veneer to match the rest of your teeth for a seamless cosmetic restoration.

You have stained teeth

Discolourations on your teeth can greatly affect how you smile. But with veneers, your dentist can create a smile that looks whiter and brighter. This is extremely helpful if whitening products no longer work for you.

You have tooth gaps

If you have minimal tooth gaps, veneers can also help to close that. This helps provide a quick fix without orthodontic braces which can take a while to finish.

Your teeth are worn down

Worn-down teeth can happen if you have a grinding or clenching habit or as a result of daily use and aging. Get your smile looking brand new again with veneers that can be personalized to create your dream smile.

Benefits of Dental Veneers

Because veneers are bespoke to the size, shape, colour, and full appearance that you want, you can get them done according to your unique needs. This creates a smile makeover that is tailored and unique to you. This cosmetic feat helps with making veneers that truly meet your smile goals

Aside from a smile improvement, other benefits of veneers that make it a great treatment option are:

  • Looks and feels natural
  • Highly conservative treatment
  • Prevents tooth discolouration
  • Can be stain and wear-resistant
  • Boosts your confidence
  • Low-maintenance
  • Subtle fix for an impactful makeover

Types of Veneers

At Midpark Dental, we offer two types of veneers. Let’s go over the pros and cons of each…

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain is a highly aesthetic material that can replicate the translucent appearance and colour of natural teeth. This makes porcelain veneers the superior choice for a smile makeover with dental veneers.

Aside from its natural-looking finish, porcelain is a durable material. With proper care and maintenance, porcelain veneers can last 15 years or even longer. They are also resistant to wear and stain, so they will look brand new for many years.

However, because of these features, porcelain veneers cost more. This is truly an investment for you and your smile. Also, the artistry required to complete porcelain veneers usually takes three appointments. They are made by a lab ceramist to ensure quality.

Composite Veneers

For a more affordable option, you may go for composite veneers. On average, they can last you 4 – 8 years depending on your aftercare. They are also directly crafted and shaped on your tooth. So, the entire process can be completed in a single dental appointment.

The downside is that composite can easily stain. So, if you frequently consume staining food and drinks, you may need to have your veneers replaced rather soon.

At Midpark Dental, we recommend composite veneers as a temporary cover-up or for small applications. They are also a good choice as a preview if you want to see how your smile will look with veneers but do not want to invest in porcelain just yet.

Dental Veneers Aftercare

Generally, veneers require very little maintenance. The most important aftercare tip is to maintain good oral hygiene. This will prevent decay under or on the sides of the veneers. Otherwise, you will need to have your veneers replaced.

  1. Use a fluoride-rich toothpaste – fluoride strengthens the teeth and protects them from decay.
  2. Floss – flossing removes food and bacteria stuck between the teeth that cannot be removed with just toothbrushing.
  3. Routine dental visits – it is recommended that you visit your dentist every 6 months. This will help with preventive dental care.
  4. Professional teeth cleaning – getting your teeth cleaned by your dentist twice a year helps remove hard plaque and tartar that can affect the quality of your veneers.
  5. Use a mouthguard – if you grind or clench your teeth often, it is good to invest in a mouthguard. This will protect your teeth and veneers from easy breakage.
