Planning Out Your New Dental Veneers

Decided you want to invest in a smile makeover and looking at getting dental veneers? This thin, porcelain material can be used to mask a number of aesthetic issues and drastically improve your smile in one go! The process will take a bit of planning, however, but our dental team is ready to assist you every step of the way. Here’s what will be considered when planning out your dental veneers:

Number of veneers

During your consultation, the structure of your face and smile will be thoroughly assessed by taking impressions of your bite, dental x-rays of your mouth etc. This will help design veneers to match your natural smile. Most patients start with 6 veneers, but it’s not uncommon to have as many as ten or more done.

Shape of your new veneers

When it comes to selecting the shape of your porcelain veneers, there are endless options to choose from since each tooth is different. You can ask to see similar photos of completed cases to help your decision and our expert cosmetic dentists can help guide you on the best shape for your face.

Colour and shade

There will be various colors and sub-categories of shades to choose from as well. Our dentists will carefully match the shade of your veneers to your smile in order to find the best fit that compliments your appearance.

Existing dental work

Dental veneers are a cosmetic treatment designed to quickly and efficiently hide aesthetic flaws. They do not treat large areas of decay, structural damage or other dental conditions. Any necessary fillings or crowns will have to be taken into consideration during your consultation. We want to avoid placing any cosmetic restorations on teeth that aren’t healthy.
