At Quince Orchard Dental Care, our Cosmetic Dentistry practice is centered around the enhancement of our patients’ smiles. Our practice is a complete health practice, which means that while our specialty is oral health, we consider your overall health in everything we do. In the area of Cosmetic Dentistry we take particular care to focus also on the artistry that can be brought to bear for our patients. In our cosmetic dentistry practice, function and form coexist happily in our provision of veneers.
Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth. Veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. These custom-made shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. On the other hand, minimal prep and no prep veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement. It’s best to check with your dentist about the option that’s best for enhancing the look of your teeth.
Additionally, if you have gaps between teeth and discoloured teeth that do not respond well to whitening treatment, they can be closed and disguised with veneers. In order to accommodate the shell, a small amount of enamel is usually removed from your tooth. For this reason, placing veneers is an irreversible process. Sometimes, a veneer might chip or fracture and your dentist may advise you to avoid foods and beverages which may stain or discolour your veneers (such as coffee, tea or red wine). However, man of our patients have found the results to definitely be worth it.
At Quince Orchard Dental Care, cosmetic dentistry is an art form. Our office offers dentists with a wide range of specialities all under one roof making it very easy for patients to get many times what they are looking for in a single visit to a single office. We use the latest in technology to make our patients comfortable, for example, at our office we can use a digital scanner to create impressions for patients with strong gag reflexes or who are unable to fully open their mouth. We also maintain strong relationships with local partners, for example, one of our area's most respected dental labs allows for our patients to go there in person and match their shade/ color to ensure their veneer blends in flawlessly with their natural demotion.
At Quince Orchard Dental Care, we strive to ensure that a visit with one of our cosmetic dentists exceeds your expectations. We provide attentive consultations that allow for us to delve a little deeper and provide education about the latest and greatest cosmetic procedures. We invite you to come in and take advantage of our experienced team of cosmetic dentists.
