Dental veneers

Dental veneers are thin ceramic or composite films that are placed directly on the front of the teeth to improve their aesthetic appearance. Veneers are an excellent solution for correcting many minor cosmetic defects of the teeth.

Why use dental veneers?

A few reasons for choosing dental veneers:

  • Change the colour of the teeth
  • Mask a worn or partially broken tooth
  • Modify the shape of the teeth
  • Close up the diastemas (spaces between teeth)
  • Achieve a more harmonious smile

Moreover, the procedure is short and painless. Veneers are custom-made by the professionals at Lapointe Dental Centres. Installation of the veneers is simple, pain-free and durable.

Since the colour of the veneer is chosen according to the colour of your teeth, you may prefer to whiten them first so that your final smile is brighter.

Types of dental veneers

Composite Dental Veneers

Composite dental veneers are made directly on site by the dentist and are shaped directly onto the tooth. Only one appointment is required for this procedure, which will restore the radiance of your smile and mask imperfections.

Composite veneers have a shorter life span than ceramic veneers. Composite veneers are less resilient than ceramic veneers, so you may need touch-ups, but these are easily done.

Ceramic Dental Veneers

Ceramic dental veneers have the same function as composite veneers. However, they are made in a laboratory, much like a false nail molded for your tooth and cemented to its face.

You will need to make two appointments for the entire procedure: the first one is to prepare the tooth and take the impression that will be used to make the dental veneers in the laboratory. The second appointment will allow the dentist to cement the veneer onto the tooth.

Natural in appearance, ceramic veneers are strong, more stain-resistant than composite veneers and have a longer life span.
