What are Porcelain Veneers and the problems they fix?

One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures at Tansley Woods Dentistry is porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are a dental procedure that can fix teeth that are not aligned right, not correctly shaped, and mask discolored or dark teeth.

If the patient has a lot of attrition and dental wear from aging, veneers can be a good method to enhance the patient’s look cosmetically.

What is the process of placing veneers?

On your first appointment, we prepare your teeth by taking an impression, and we will do a temporary smile that you are going to go home with.

This is the test drive for your final smile. At this stage, we will make minor adjustments to how you would like your smile and get the lab to fabricate your porcelain veneers.

At your second appointment, 2-3 weeks later, we will insert the porcelain veneers onto your teeth.

The shells will be spotted permanently, and they will look and feel exactly like your teeth but with a beautiful smile.

Call us today at Tansley Woods Dentistry to get the perfect smile you always wanted.

Are cosmetic dental treatments painful?

To put it bluntly, no. Cosmetic dental treatments are not painful. In fact, they are safe and effective in helping prevent dental problems in the long run, saving you pain in the future. Cosmetic dental treatments, including porcelain veneers, tooth-coloured fillings, dental bonding, and crowns, strengthen and protect the underlying tooth. Plus, when you have a smile you have spent money restoring, you will want to care for it more than ever before. Cosmetic dentistry leads patients to practice better oral hygiene at home, resulting in less painful cavities, toothaches, and more.

Will your dental insurance cover cosmetic dental treatments?

Dental insurance will only cover a cosmetic procedure if these treatments are considered elective. However, it always helps to check with your carrier. Some insurance companies may cover a part of your procedure if it is determined that the primary purpose is to correct a structural issue. A great example of this is a dental crown. Dr. Nguyen and our team are happy to work with PayBright, Canada’s easiest installment payment choice. Even if a treatment is elective, cost should not make a better-looking smile prohibitive. Ask us about financing your cosmetic treatment, and we will gladly give you more information about PayBright.
