Have you ever felt down about your smile? Are your teeth chipped, stained, or misaligned? If you answered to both questions, you may have wondered if there’s a dental solution that’s less expensive, not to mention less invasive than going the traditional route of correcting teeth with dental braces. The answer?
Dental veneers are often considered a quick fix solution for common dental problems ranging from stains, chipped teeth, misaligned teeth, to tooth gaps, and thinning enamel. Perhaps the best part about veneers is that they’re fast and easy to install, and relatively cheaper next to braces and retainers.
Dental Veneers 101
A dental veneer is a layer of material placed over a tooth to hide imperfections and protect the teeth. A veneer is custom fabricated according to a patient’s tooth color, shape, and imperfection, whether’ it’s a gap, a surface problem (e.g. worn enamel and discoloration), or chipped teeth.
At Cosmo Dental Center, our most popular veneer option is our custom-made “Lumineers” porcelain veneers—this is due largely to their durability and level of glass. However, we also offer composite “Componeers” veneers, which are cheaper and less durable, but much easier to replace.
Can You Get Dental Veneers
At Cosmo Dental Centre, we’ve fitted dental veneers on hundreds of patients in the London, Ontario area. However, although almost anyone looking to improve their smile and appearance of their teeth can get veneers, there are certain conditions that have to be considered for their use. For starters, we first have to check for gum disease and tooth decay in our patients before they can qualify for veneers. If both issues are present, we recommend fixing these problems first with our broad range of treatment options. If your existing dental problems are severe, we may have to recommend dental implants and/or bridges instead of veneers.
