How to Use Veneers to Improve Your Smile

how to use veneers to improve your smile

Everyone loves a good reno. Whether it’s a house to flip or transform to one that suits your family or a cottage that needs to grow to accommodate growing teens, a successful renovation can bring joy to the whole family. (Along with lots to learn and get done!) But you can renovate much more than a house or a cottage — you can transform your smile too. And, with it, your appearance, confidence, and self-esteem. Here’s the information you need to reno your smile with veneers.

Porcelain veneers make small but surprisingly impactful changes to several factors that define your teeth, including their colour, shape, size, spacing, texture, luminosity, and alignment. With porcelain veneers in Spruce Grove, you can go from teeth you’re inclined to hide to a smile you can’t resist sharing.

What are Porcelain Veneers Made Of?

Veneers are thin shells designed specifically for your teeth. They’re made from porcelain, a material that is translucent in the same way that your healthiest teeth are translucent and reflect natural light. Veneers can be applied to one or more teeth on one or both jaws in your mouth.

What is The Process Of Getting Veneers?

You can customize and perfect your smile as quickly as attending two appointments at our dentist in Spruce Grove.

Appointment One

Our dentist will carefully measure your teeth to gather all the information to craft a veneer (or several) just for you. The underside of that veneer will fit seamlessly over your tooth or teeth, while the outside projects the ideal profile you want for the outside world. You and our dentist in Spruce Grove will work together to choose the best shape and colour to achieve your goals and blend naturally with your mouth and face. In anticipation of your second appointment, our dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to create the perfect setting for your porcelain veneers.

Appointment Two

Our dental specialist near you will confirm that the veneers fit perfectly and achieve your goals before attaching them to your teeth. The veneers will then be bonded to your teeth with specialized adhesives. Assuming you do what’s necessary to maintain the health of your underlying teeth and avoid some habits that can undermine your veneers, those veneers will last at least a decade.

The Advantages Of Veneers Near You

Porcelain veneers alter the size, shape, spacing, alignment, and colour of otherwise healthy teeth without contouring, orthodontic work, whitening, or bleaching.

They are so thin that you won’t feel them on your teeth and are permanently bonded to your teeth with special materials.

By avoiding habits such as chewing pencils and ice and biting your fingernails, veneers can last for 10 to 20 years.

Porcelain is an ideal material for crafting veneers because it will blend with your natural teeth, gums, lips, and face naturally and discreetly. It is highly resistant to stains but not capable of being whitened. Our dentist in Spruce Grove will recommend that you have all your teeth professionally cleaned before you choose the colour of your veneers.

To care for your veneers, all you need to do is carry on with your best daily dental habits: brush after eating, floss daily, mouthwash occasionally, attend twice-yearly dental checkups, and have your teeth cleaned by our dentist once a year.

Too many people live with smiles they don’t love that they’re reluctant to display. Hiding a smile — or not having a smile to smile about — can undermine your personality, confidence, and attractiveness. If your teeth are generally healthy or only affected by minor issues our dentist can help you resolve, porcelain veneers in Spruce Grove may be exactly what you need to perfect your teeth and unleash your brightest and most confident smile and appearance.
