It’s easy to see why so many of our patients at Love Your Smile in Kelowna love porcelain veneers. Veneers correct a multitude of flaws and deliver brilliant results.
If you would like to improve your smile with porcelain veneers, you want a trusted dentist with extensive experience performing this treatment. The porcelain veneer procedure is more complicated than you may realize.
A porcelain veneer is an extremely thin shell (about .5mm or 1/64 inch) that is permanently attached to the front of a tooth. Each one is custom made for each tooth. Veneers cover chips, cracks, and stains, and can also improve the shape, size or length of a tooth.
While preparing a tooth for a veneer is less invasive than other procedures, it is not reversible. A thin layer of enamel must be removed to make room for the veneer. Thus, the tooth can never be restored to its original condition.
Veneers are usually placed on the most visible teeth – front and center, so to speak. They’ll be on display every time you open your mouth. This is definitely a procedure you want to get right the first time!
