What Are Veneers?

Dental veneers are simply customised shells that are fitted over the teeth. They cover the front outer surface and conceal imperfections like stains and/or damage like teeth chipping. Veneers are a cosmetic dentistry treatment offered to enhance the natural appearance of your teeth, helping you bring back that beautiful smile. 

Who Are Veneers For?

Veneers generally serve aesthetic goals and are installed on several occasions. If you have the following cosmetic dentistry issues, you are an ideal candidate for veneers. 

  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Discolored teeth/Teeth stains
  • Teeth gap or gaps between teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Small teeth

The Difference Between Veneers & Crowns

Patients often mistake crowns and veneers and don’t really understand when one can be more beneficial for them than the other. This is because crowns also cover a tooth and enhance appearance, however they are not the same. The main difference include:

  • Crowns cover the entire tooth, veneers cover the front.
  • Crowns are generally used for adding protection/strength to a single tooth or teeth (this may be needed because of damage, trauma, or tooth decay), while veneers sort out cosmetic issues.

    Types of Veneers 

    There are many common types of veneers today based largely on the dental material that makes them and the underlying goal. At Dr. Claire Benmergui Family & Cosmetic Dentistry Clinic, we offer the following:

      1. Porcelain Veneers in Toronto


      As the name suggests, these veneers are made of porcelain (a strong and highly durable ceramic material). Besides their strength and durability, Porcelain ceramic veneers are a very popular option for their versatility i.e., they can solve multiple cosmetic issues from discoloured teeth to cracks, chicks, teeth spacing, misaligned teeth, etc.)

      Porcelain veneers are also ultra-thin, highly customizable, and have advantages in color stability, making them offer the perfect fit and a natural teeth look.

      2. Composite Veneers

      Composite resin veneers are made from tooth-coloured resin materials. They are also popular for their versatility. They may be cheaper than porcelain veneers. However, composite material isn’t as durable and tends to stain faster. Other notable cons include their less natural-looking appearance.

      3. Removable Veneers

      Veneers can also be categorised based on their installation mechanism. As the name suggests, removable veneers are not permanent. They are also known as temporary veneers, snap-on veneers, or pop-on veneers. These stand out mostly for their convenience i.e., they can be installed and removed anytime. However, they come with notable cons like less durability.

      Veneers: How Do They Work?

      This is among the most common questions about veneers. They are fitted on the front surface of teeth to cover imperfections like discoloration, chips, cracks, spacing, or uneven teeth. As long as they stay in place, they’ll effectively enhace a patient’s smile. Typical veneer cosmetic treatments can take a single visit.

      How Veneers Are Applied

      A special bonding agent (dental cement) is applied to hold the veneer in place. A beam of light is usually passed over the veneers to harden the cement faster and effectively. Below is a brief explanation of how veneers are made at our clinic.

      How Veneers Are Made

      Step 1: Free consultation

      To begin with, book a free consultation in which you will know if you are the right candidate for veneers, the type of veneer you should install, other cosmetic solutions, and more.

      Step 2: Preparing the Underlying Teeth

      If you are an ideal candidate, we’ll proceed and prepare a personalized treatment plan. Treatment begins by preparing the teeth in question. This may involve removing a thin layer of enamel to create space for veneers and offer the most natural-looking result.

      Step 3: Taking Impressions and Making Custom Veneers

      We proceed by taking your dental impressions and custom-making veneers for you, thus ensuring they will be comfortable and closely resemble your natural teeth. 

      Step 4: Bonding the Veneers

      Once ready, we’ll install the veneers using special dental cement. If required, we can make minor adjustments.

      Veneers: How Long Does It Take?

      Typical dental procedures take minutes to a few hours, depending on the size of the treatment area (i.e., the number of teeth). The need for other dental treatments can also make the process longer. 

      When Will I Need New Veneers?

      The durability of veneers is dictated by several factors, the most notable being:

      • Type of veneers: Porcelain veneers have long-lasting results (last longer than composite veneers i.e. 10-20 years vs 5 to 7 years).
      • Expert installation: Your veneers, regardless of type, are bound to last longer if they are installed by true experts with decades of experience.
      • Proper care: You also need to maintain proper oral hygiene ( i.e., regular brushing and regular dental check-ups as per care instructions) for your veneers to last as they should.
