Disguise imperfections quickly with quality dental veneers
Enhancing your smile when imperfections exist is easy with the use of cosmetic dentistry services. Dr. Ramin Mirmooji and his team at Msmiline Cosmetic Dentistry of Pierrefonds, Quebec, offer a few different approaches to patients interested in disguising problems such as permanent staining, breakage, or misalignment on teeth near the front of the smile. The most common is that of porcelain veneers, also known as dental or cosmetic veneers.
What is a porcelain veneer?
A veneer is best described as a thin, tooth-like shell that covers the front of a tooth to enhance its appearance. Veneers are fashioned from porcelain but can also be made from composite resin and ceramic. They are stain-resistant and can last up to 15 years with proper care.
How do porcelain veneers work?
Before making any alterations to your smile with porcelain veneers, Dr. Mirmooji will first assess your teeth and gums for signs of oral health problems such as cavities or gum disease. He consults with you about the appearance goals you want to achieve and then makes impressions of your teeth to create the veneers. Next, he will use a local anesthetic on your tooth or inject you with local anesthesia to prepare the tooth for the porcelain veneer. The next step is to remove some of the enamel from the face of each tooth and make room for the veneers by filing down their size and shape.
The dentist then attaches a temporary coating over your prepared teeth until he places permanent ones in about one week’s time at Msmiline Cosmetic Dentistry. Porcelain veneers are made of solid materials that can withstand years of normal biting pressure, so you can count on them to look natural and last for many years with proper care. The placement of the veneer is done after removing the temporary to complete the process.

Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
