Veneers compared to natural teeth

Veneers

Teeth compromised by wear, chips, and minor misalignment can be embarrassing and make you feel self-conscious about sharing your smile.

Veneers from Vitacare Denta Centre in Coquitlam, BC, can conceal cosmetic flaws giving your smile symmetry and a healthy appearance.

So what makes porcelain veneers such an effective cosmetic treatment?

 
Take a look at how veneers fit into your smile...

How Do I Know if I'm a Good Candidate for Veneers?

It is important to keep in mind that dental veneers require permanent alteration to the structure of any treated tooth. Any tooth treated with a porcelain veneer will require some kind of restoration moving forward. For the right candidates, minimal-prep veneers are a reversible alternative.

Enough Enamel

Tooth enamel must be removed for your dental veneers to achieve a natural appearance. That means that patients interested in veneers must still have a sufficient amount of enamel already so that some can still be removed safely.

No Grinding

If you grind your teeth, it can damage veneers and undermine the results of your treatment. For mild to moderate cases of bruxism, an oral appliance can protect your veneers, but more extreme cases may require resolving the underlying issue before moving forward.

Minor Misalignment

Veneers are a flexible cosmetic dentistry treatment that can conceal small gaps and minor misalignments much faster than traditional orthodontic options for patients on a tight timetable. However, severely crooked teeth or larger gaps are oftentimes better treated with orthodontics.

Wonderful and clean clinic. Top notch service the moment you step foot inside. Very welcoming vibe with the staff. The interiors are brand new and the wait area is cozy and entertaining with a TV and gaming consoles to pass the time. By far the most comfortable dentist chair I've sat on with Netflix watching available as you get your teeth worked on. Dr. Wong is incredible. Nice, honest and very knowledgeable. He'll give you honest feedback to ensure you get the best care. Sometimes going to the dentist can feel like a chore, but not with Dr. Wong and the Vitacare staff. Amazing experience from start to finish. Highly recommended for your dental care needs!

My experience here at Vitacare was one of the best I've had in quite some time. I had been looking for a dental office where I can be followed by one dentist through the years, and it appears I've found it. 

Dr. Vanessa Lee was very patient and knowledgeable, and most importantly she did a great job putting me at ease. On top of that everything at the office appears to be high tech and top notch. I'll be bringing my family here.
