Veneers are ultra-thin shells that attach to the surface of your teeth. They will enhance the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth.
We recommend getting veneers if you experience any of the following:
• Chipped teeth
• Crooked teeth
• Asymmetrical teeth
• Natural wear and tear
Before fitting you with veneers, we will perform an examination of your mouth, teeth, and bite. This is a great way to identify which area needs to be treated.
Your mouth and teeth will have digital images taken so we can get an idea of what we are working with. After taking impressions of your teeth, we will create veneers that are custom-fitted to your teeth. Then, your specialist will shave down your enamel in preparation for the veneers. A high-quality resin will be applied to your teeth and the veneers placed on top for accuracy and visual enhancement!
Teeth Whitening: Cause of Tooth Discoloration
Our teeth become discolored due to many contributing factors in our daily lives. Discoloration is mainly caused by food, dark-colored drinks, age, and teeth grinding. Natural aging is directly linked to discoloration because of the natural “wear and tear” process that creates a yellow cast over time.
Types of Stains
There are many different types of stains that are on the surface of your teeth. They include the following:
-stains on the outer layer of teeth
-due to consuming dark-colored drinks (i.e. coffee)
-stains on the inside of teeth
-result of aging and trauma-related conditions
We will initially analyze your mouth and teeth to identify the level of whitening is required. A hydrogen peroxide gel will be applied to your teeth. You will be fitted with a mouth guard to create a barrier from the gel irritating your gums. Then, we will heat the gel with a low intensity light to create instantly whiter teeth. We recommend not drinking or eating for up to an hour after treatment.
