Why choose veneers?
Have you ever wondered why models and actors never get their teeth stained? And why do they all have perfectly spaced, beautifully sculpted, even perfect teeth? How is it possible? The solution: porcelain veneers.
You didn’t think they were natural, did you?
Porcelain veneers are thin. These are handmade porcelain shells that fit over the face of the front teeth. These veneers fill gaps between teeth, change their shape, color and size, and can correct minor misalignments. Some people call them “Instant Orthodontic” veneers. Our laboratory manufactures dental porcelain veneers that resist stains indefinitely and look completely natural.
A cosmetic dentist with LVI training places porcelain veneers to enhance a patient’s image and complement the occlusion. This means that he will consider how your teeth should fit together before ordering your veneers. Dental work that doesn’t fit properly with your bite can cause TMJ problems like headaches, as well as tooth wear. Beauty is important, but the function is imperative.
We can offer you to get the best of both! We have cared for our Montreal area patients with excellence for nearly two decades, and we want to give you a reason to smile. Call today
Before placing a permanent dental veneer, a small local anesthetic is performed and then a micro abrasion of the tooth is performed on 0.2 to 0.3 mm so that it can receive the dental veneer.
Then you have to make an impression on the jaw. It is intended for the dental technician who will manufacture the ceramic dental veneer. The shade of this is chosen according to the patient’s dentition and the shape is modeled on the general appearance of the teeth so that the smile is homogeneous and harmonious.
While waiting for the final lamella to be ready, the dental surgeon places a temporary veneer so that the patient can have a nice smile during the treatment.
Finally, during the last (and 2nd) session, the specialist glues the final veneer to the prepared tooth using a very effective cement glue. The dental veneer is then resistant for about 10 years.
In which cases to use dental veneers?
The placement of dental veneers is used either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to restore a damaged tooth.
This is the technique to use if:
- The teeth are dark and bleaching has not made them white
- The teeth are damaged, worn, or cracked
- They have unsightly composite restorations
- They have an alignment defective
- There is too much space between the teeth
- The demand for a perfect smile is real

Reimbursement of dental veneers
Since veneers are aesthetic dental procedures, they are part of the free basket, and therefore the price of veneers is high. In addition, as it is an aesthetic act, the veneer is not funded by Social Security.
However, if you have a complementary health contract, your mutual insurance company can participate in your expenses. To know your remaining charge, do not hesitate to ask us for a free quote that you can send to your mutual insurance company.
