In dentistry, veneers near you are a non-invasive, conservative method of recreating tooth enamel.  Traditionally, the thin ceramic shells are cemented to the front surface of anterior teeth. Your dentist in Sault Ste. Marie, ON may place dental veneers to correct minor issues, such as:

  • Chipped or cracked tooth enamel
  • Discoloration or stains
  • Misalignment
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Worn teeth

Tooth veneers are not only durable and stain-resistant but are also custom-crafted to mimic the natural shape and color of your teeth.

Dr. Ruchi Sheth provides veneers for Great North Dental patients who want to improve the appearance of their smiles.

Dental Veneers Near Me

Three or four office visits are required to complete the veneers procedure. During your first appointment, your Sault Ste. Marie, ON dentist, will take a dental exam and cleaning and assess your smile needs and wants. Next, we take images and mouth impressions to create a mold of your new restorations. The dentist will prepare the affected tooth or teeth at the second visit. At this time, the last impressions are taken. Temporary veneers will be bonded in place to protect the prepared teeth. Then, we will schedule a third appointment to remove the veneers, clean the teeth and permanently place the final restorations. Usually, about a week after the procedure, patients return to Great North Dental. This visit allows Dr. Ruchi Sheth to make any necessary adjustments if needed.

Caring for Your Dental Veneers

No special steps are required to care for your new veneers. The final restoration looks and functions just like your natural smile. Therefore, all you must do is brush and floss as you usually do. Without proper oral hygiene, cavities and stains can develop beneath the veneer.

You do need to remember to avoid biting down on hard food items like apples and nuts. These hard substances can cause damage to the veneer. If you clench or grind your teeth during sleep, Dr. Ruchi Sheth may recommend a custom-fitted night guard. Taking good care of your veneers is not hard. But if you have any questions or concerns, contact our dental practice in Sault Ste. Marie, ON. We are happy to help.
