New Patient Visit – How it Works
During your first visit we will take some digital X-Rays and see what’s going on inside of your mouth. Then, we’ll learn about your oral health goals and come up with a treatment plan.
Your Mouth, Your Decisions
Once we have shared our recommendations, we want you make the best decisions for yourself. We will never be pushy or recommend treatments that you do not need.
About Porcelain Veneers
At Westbury Dental Spa, watching patients see their brilliant new smile for the first time is the highlight of our day. Sometimes referred to as instant orthodontics, veneers can dramatically transform your smile. A set of veneers can correct chips, stains, and even deeply discolored teeth. But they can also alter the length and size of teeth or help give the appearance of a straight tooth where there is not. While it may sound dramatic, it isn’t. Veneers provide a highly conservative approach to esthetic smile makeovers.
Veneers are the ultimate combination of dental art and science, handcrafted and customized to fit your smile. These paper-thin pieces of porcelain bond to the outside of your natural teeth. But just because they’re thin, don’t be fooled. Veneers are highly versatile and can replicate all the complex nuances of a natural tooth.
Good Planning Paves the Way
There’s a lot of diagnostic work and careful planning that goes into a treatment plan that includes veneers. Models, photographs, and digital x-rays allow you and the doctor to create a perfect blueprint to guide your treatment from start to finish. Like all successful projects, this planning can’t be compromised. Dr. Farhana Oza-Chughtai will consider your input and incorporate your desires into your veneer case, from color to shape and everything in between.
The Next Steps
Once the doctor plans your case, it will take around two appointments before you leave with a stunning new smile. At the first visit, the teeth are gently prepared to allow space for the ultra-thin porcelain to be crafted by a master lab technician.
The doctor will create temporary restorations that mimic the veneers, which you’ll wear for up to three weeks. These temporaries provide a preview of your new smile and lets you try it out to see if any further changes are needed.
Delivering the Magic
After your veneers have been masterfully crafted to our doctor’s specific instructions, you’ll return for a second appointment. Dr. Farhana Oza-Chughtai will try in each veneer and evaluate the appearance and fit. She will go through several steps to precisely bond the thin veneers to the surface of your teeth, creating an incredibly strong bond between tooth and porcelain. Minor adjustments to your bite and a final polish will leave you with a smile that may have you wondering why you waited so long to find Westbury Dental Spa.
WILL MY TEETH HAVE TO BE SHAVED DOWN INTO LITTLE PEGS?
Contrary to popular belief porcelain veneers only require a small reduction in tooth structure because they are less than 0.5 mm thick.
HOW LONG WILL MY VENEERS LAST?
Typically, your veneer should last between 20-25 years without atrophying or losing colour.
SHOULD I BE WORRIED ABOUT MY VENEER COMING LOOSE DEPENDING ON WHAT I EAT?
Live your life as you usually would. Your porcelain veneer is durable and rarely comes loose once it has been bonded. In the unusual circumstance that it does, feel free to give us a call and we can help you fix it.
