Could your teeth use a touch up? Are you looking to improve or whiten your smile? If so, porcelain veneers may be the solution for you. At Newmarket Dentistry in Newmarket, our dentists can renew your smile in just a few visits. Here is what to know about the porcelain veneers:

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are slim and durable porcelain shells for your teeth which cover any damage, gaps, wear, staining or chips in your teeth. They are affixed to the front of your original teeth making them fully functional for eating, biting and brushing.

How are porcelain veneers affixed?

At our Newmarket office, your dentist will buff away some of the surface enamel of your teeth, which allows for better adherence of your porcelain veneers, and take a mold of your top and bottom teeth. Your custom veneers will be crafted to fit seamlessly and tinted to look like natural, healthy teeth. Your dentist will first clean your teeth thoroughly and use a bonding adhesive to secure the veneers to the front of your natural teeth.

What are the advantages of porcelain veneers?

Many individuals find porcelain veneers to be an attractive, easy and durable way to remedy cosmetic flaws in their teeth. Natural yet flattering in appearance, veneers also help hinder staining from food and beverages, and can be brushed and flossed just like natural teeth.

While very strong, porcelain veneers can crack under intense pressure, meaning you should avoid biting into especially hard foods. Ask our Newmarket dentist about how to best maintain your veneers.
