Vancouver Dental Veneers
High-Quality Porcelain Veneers in Vancouver
If you have stained or cracked teeth and you’re looking to upgrade your smile, we can help. While there are several treatment options to consider, porcelain veneers remain one of the most popular ways to improve the performance and appearance of your teeth. The purpose of veneers is to enhance the look and feel of your natural teeth while still achieving excellent results and long-term durability.
What Are Porcelain Veneers Used For?
If you don’t know what porcelain veneers are, they’re a material made up of thin ceramic shells that are affixed to your teeth and are designed to have the ideal color and shape for your new smile. The ceramic shells help make your smile cleaner and healthier overall. They can also be used to solve a variety of dental problems, such as:
- Worn out teeth: As your teeth lose enamel over time, it will result in a dull-looking appearance and cause them to look more worn down.
- Discoloration: Stained teeth can come from infection, nerve removal, or medication. If discoloration can’t be remedied with teeth whitening, veneers are a good option.
- Misaligned teeth: Teeth that are too short, too long, or in the wrong position can be corrected with veneers.

What are the Pros of Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a great way to replenish and rejuvenate your smile. In addition to fixing common dental issues, they also hold several other advantages that make them a great choice for patients.
The pros of porcelain veneers include:
- Custom-made for all types of mouths
- Invisible to detection when matched to the right color
- Procedure is painless
- Durable and tough, so they can handle almost all types of foods and beverages
What are the Cons of Porcelain Veneers?
Despite the clear advantages of porcelain veneers, there are a few things to consider before deciding if they are the right treatment for you. For one, they are permanent, which means, once they’re created and placed, they are meant to last for very long time. Additionally, since the porcelain is very thin, it’s prone to cracking and chipping if certain destructive forces are applied to them. They are not recommended for some individuals who habitually grind their teeth, bite their nails, or chew on ice.
