Is there something about your smile that you wish you could change or make better? Do you have minor orthodontic problems, such as small tooth gaps or mildly crooked teeth, for which you would prefer a less intrusive corrective fix than braces? Or perhaps you are looking for a long-term solution to cover tooth stains or to fix chips in your teeth?

Dental veneers are the highly versatile solution you might be looking for! For many dental imperfections, teeth veneers are the best choice of treatment to dramatically improve tooth discolouration or unsatisfactory tooth sizes or shapes. They are fast, safe, effective and long-lasting, so you can have a perfect smile for Vancouver living in no time!

Dental veneers are an ideal option for teeth whitening and instant orthodontic work at the same time to vividly improve your smile, fix small teeth gaps and whiten your teeth, from common tooth stains to severe teeth stains such as tetracycline tooth stains, all in as little as a couple visits to your Vancouver dentist at Clear Advantage Orthodontics at Oakridge Centre.

What are teeth veneers?

Teeth veneers are thin and highly durable layers of either dental porcelain or composite resin that cover the outer layers of teeth. They are designed to be permanent, often lasting many years, and are shaped to your teeth. We shape the dental veneers to fit your tooth sizes and to resolve your unique dental needs. They fit easily over your teeth for a natural-feeling fit and look that neither you nor anyone else will even notice!

What is the process for getting veneers?

We will consult with you to determine what the best course of action is for your dental challenges and if dental veneers are an appropriate remedy, recommending which teeth need adjusting for veneers and how. Based on your specific needs and wants, we will help you decide what kind of veneers are best for you, porcelain veneers vs. composite veneers; porcelain is longer-lasting and less prone to further staining while composite veneers are easier to prepare and more affordable.

For porcelain veneers, we prepare your teeth by shaving thin layers of enamel off and then take a mould of your teeth to construct the custom porcelain veneers so they fit naturally and perfectly over your teeth. The veneers are then glued onto your teeth permanently with a composite-resin dental cement.

Composite veneers are applied directly onto your teeth in layers, hardened and finally shaped and polished for a natural and smooth look and feel.

How much do veneers cost in Vancouver?

Costs for veneers vary significantly, depending on how many teeth you need treated for veneers, the preexisting condition of your teeth, the extent to which your teeth need remedies from dental veneers and the material used for the veneers, whether it’s porcelain or composite resin. The Vancouver dental professionals at Clear Advantage Orthodontics can consult with you on your options and provide cost estimates for your specific needs.
