Dental Veneers in Langley, BC
If you hide your smile due to dental imperfections, you may benefit from the attractive, minimally-invasive option of porcelain veneers. At Saidi Dental Group, Dr. Masoud Saidi, Dr. Janet Jin, and Dr. Adam Chong recommend these discreet yet durable restorations for their ability to emulate natural dentition while providing long-lasting results.
What are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers offer the advantage of cosmetically improving your dental condition while also conserving a great deal of your teeth' healthy, existing structure. As a result, our dentists may recommend veneers as an alternative to crowns when moderate treatment is more appropriate to achieve desired results.
In particular, porcelain has unique properties that make it ideal for use as veneers. Porcelain can endure normal dental function, even when thin pieces are used. Additionally, a variety of genuine shades and shapes can be reproduced with porcelain veneers. At our Langley dental office, we have noticed that several common defects to our patients’ smiles can be corrected with porcelain veneers, ultimately improving the entire smile.
Some of these conditions include:
Crooked or misshapen teeth
- Worn or chipped teeth
- Extensively stained or discoloured teeth
- Inappropriately sized teeth (too large or small)
- Undesired spaces between teeth
As an added benefit to correcting defects with porcelain veneers, the custom fit to your front-facing dentition gives your restoration a pleasant and uniform appearance.
Receiving Porcelain Veneers
In keeping with Saidi Dental Group’s goal to preserve our patients' oral health, the process of getting porcelain veneers is uncomplicated and does not significantly impact underlying dental health and composition. Your teeth will be moderately prepared before placement to accommodate for the additional thickness of a veneer. An impression, or mould, of your teeth is also taken so that your veneers are fabricated to the specific dimensions of your smile. At this time, our dentists will work with you to decide on the right colour for your veneers.
At the placement appointment, your teeth will first be cleansed with special, professional-grade liquids to ensure your veneer is optimally bonded. Then, dental bonding cement is used when applying the veneer, hardened and set using a specialized light.
After the procedure, you will receive care instructions, including recommendations for your daily brushing and flossing routine. Regular follow-up visits with Dr. Saidi, Dr. Jin, and Dr. Chow also recommended enhancing your porcelain veneers' longevity. In addition, your restorations can be assessed for replacement during these visits to our Langley dental practice due to normal wear.
