Porcelain veneers are thin shells of – yes, you guessed it – porcelain that cover the front-facing exterior of each of your teeth. Veneers are designed to look natural, providing a layer of cosmetically and aesthetically pleasing protection for your smile. You deserve to feel confident in yourself, and here at Lakewood Dental, we’re here to help you with that.

What’s the Process for Receiving Porcelain Veneers?

Interested in visiting a dentist that offers treatment for porcelain veneers? This is the process:

Your dentist will perform an assessment to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for porcelain veneers. Don’t be afraid to bring up any questions or concerns you may have about or during the process. Our staff are more than happy to address anything that’s on your mind.

Your dentist will then perform a slight etching, then take an impression of your teeth. This is to ensure that the veneers will properly fit. Similar to custom mouth guards and dental crowns, once the impressions are taken, they will be used to create your personalized veneers. While this is most commonly performed without the use of sedation, talk to your dentist if you’re unsure or hesitant about the porcelain veneer procedure in Saskatoon; we’ll do our utmost to make sure you are comfortable.

The subsequent creation process typically takes anywhere from one to two weeks. When they’re ready, you’ll return to have the veneers placed in your mouth, plus a nice polish so that your teeth will shine.

Alongside their natural appearance, veneers are also composed of a stain-resistant material. You’ll have the confidence to show off your beautiful smile, of which will last many years. Just be sure to maintain good oral health practices like brushing and flossing. At Lakewood Dental, we look forward to helping you decide on the right cosmetic dental treatment for you!
