Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are a great cosmetic option that can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile.

About This Treatment

Veneers can cover discolorations or stains, fill gaps between front teeth, and cover teeth that are worn down, chipped, broken, misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped. 

Veneers are the answers to making your smile better, more confident, more natural and flawless

Veneers can therefore correct teeth that are deeply stained, discoloured, yellow, chipped, broken or slightly rotated. 

When choosing a “dental veneers dentist”, it is important to pick one who has the right experience and training in cosmetic dentistry techniques. It is equally important to select a dentist who will take the time to understand you and your aesthetic dental goals and who possesses the skill and artistry to deliver your exact vision. Settling for anything less is exactly how some people wind up with dental veneers that look unnatural and with disproportionate smiles that just don’t properly fit their faces. Too much?

We believe that simplicity provides a path to elegance, and that is why we will never do any unnecessary work on your smile.

When it comes to porcelain veneers it is often what you don’t see that matters most. We believe that there is nothing more attractive than a natural-looking smile that truly feels like it could not belong to anyone else but you. When your smile is seamlessly fitted to you, people start to notice that “something” about you has changed, that there is something captivating about your overall confidence.

 

That is the magic effect of an Identity Smile and that is our goal with every single patient. How do we accomplish this? With careful attention to detail, taking every opportunity to preserve the natural characteristics that make your smile yours while enhancing those elements that take away from it.

This requires an in-depth understanding of the face, the mouth, the teeth and how these all interconnect to define who you are. In some instances, it may only be necessary to place one or two veneers instead of covering the entire mouth with porcelain dental veneers. It is our belief that simplicity provides a path to elegance, and that is why we will never do any unnecessary work on your smile.

When upgrading your smile with veneers, they need to complement your overall facial features so that they look natural and fit organically.

For example, if you have a small face, you should not choose long, square-shaped veneers that will not fit your overall proportions. With an angular or square-shaped face, softer edges on your teeth is preferable. The length of your teeth can make a big difference: longer teeth can benefit if your face is fuller while wider teeth helps if your face is thinner.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Veneers for me? Do I need Veneers?

Yes if you have:

•Misshapen Teeth
•Teeth that Are Too Small
•Gaps Between Your Teeth
•Crooked Teeth
•Stained, Discolored or Yellow Teeth
•An Asymmetrical Smile

What are veneers made of?

Veneers can be made of porcelain or composite.
Note that there are also different types of composites (varying in quality and appearance) as well as different types of porcelain (varying in strength, gloss and translucency).

Therefore all Composite bondings are not the same and not all Porcelain Veneers are the same.

About Composite Bonding:
The concept of tooth bonding is similar to porcelain veneers, but the process is simpler and the cost is lower. Composite bonding is a single session treatment option which is great to correct smaller imperfections, chips, cracks and minor spacing between the teeth.
Dental bonding does not have the longevity and durability of porcelain veneers. Bonded teeth will stain in time.

About Porcelain Veneers:
Porcelain veneers are more stain resistant than composite veneers.
They look more natural when it comes to reflecting light, just like your natural teeth do.

How long do Dental Veneers last? How do I maintain my Veneers?

Porcelain Veneers have the potential of lastling a lifetime with an average of 10-15 years.

They are highly resistant to stain and chippins.

The patient’s job is to carefully maintain their veneers by flossing and brushing daily and make sure to have professional teeth cleanings at least twice a year.

Bad Habits like nail biting or pencil chewing can damage veneers just like they damage natural teeth. In fact, it takes as much force to break a porcelain veneer as it does a natural tooth.

Can Veneers be an alternative to Braces? Do I still need to get Invisalign if I get Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dental procedure. They do not correct bite problems, nor do they correct the position of your teeth. Veneers simply sit on top of your teeth and can help change the shape and the colour of your teeth.

If you have misaligned teeth or problems like jaw pain, you may need to consider aligning your teeth first. Orthodontic treatments like Invisalign or Clear braces are preferably done before other cosmetic treatments.

If you choose to straighten your teeth, followed by teeth whitening, and you are still not happy with the appearance of some of your teeth; at this point, you can opt for veneers. These teeth may be permanently discolored or damaged even though they are straight they are and how comfortable your bite feels.

Do I need to get my teeth whiten if I get Veneers?

Most patients do need some professional whitening because of the staining caused by coffee, tea, red wine, certain mouthwashes, taking the antibiotic tetracycline, smoking, or just aging.

However it is not mandatory to do so before having veneers if you are happy with the colour of your teeth as they are.

But, if a tooth root has died, it will be dark and may show through the veneer, or if it was treated, the enamel may no longer adequately mask the yellow dentin underneath.

Natural teeth should be whitened to the color chosen for veneers, then let the whitening settle in before finalizing the shade before fabrication by the master ceramist. Veneers can maintain their color for as long as 10 years, starting with choosing the right material.

Over-the-counter whiteners do not affect the color of your veneers, but they can help natural teeth maintain the same shade.

My experience with Dr. Germain has been nothing short of a pleasure. The attention to care and comfort is second to none and it’s a genuine joy to go to the dentist when being seen by Dr. Germain. She has taken her time inside and outside of our normal appointments to ensure that I am getting the treatment that I need to be confident about my teeth and oral hygiene. Superb knowledge and facilities, top tier professionalism but also a reassuring and friendly presence - couldn’t recommend her more highly.

I was very nervous going to the dentist after too many years avoiding it. Dr. Germain was amazing! Professional but down to earth, she was able to put me at ease. Setting up appointments with her assistant, Chloe has been a breeze and very client-centric. Definitely recommend!

Yay! Finally found a good dentist in London. Dr. Germain does all the right checks (lymph-nodes, tongue and mouth check, jaw, etc) and her cleaning is the best I've had in London. She doesn't waste time trying to upsell you on things (this can be common in the US) but she'll answer all your questions and provide an opinion on options and cost and leave it with you -- which is great. Definitely my primary dentist now.

Excellent dentist with a wonderful sense of humor, patient-focused, available and sympathetic. I had total confidence visiting the office multiple times during the pandemic. She has a very good associated periodontist. If you are looking for an American-style dentist I highly recommend Dr. Germain. She is also experienced with US dental insurance forms.

She is professional, thorough, efficient and cares about me as a patient. She's proactive and checks in post-dental work to make sure all is going smoothly; I couldn't recommend her enough! She has made visits to the dentist much more positive than any other dentist!

Dr. Germain is incredible about seeing the whole picture, made the biggest difference to my face, teeth and I’m incredulous more dentists are NOT like her but wow! I am LUCKY to have found her. She is incredibly tenacious about getting results you are happy with. Her ethics are second to none. The people she co-ordinates with are incredible. Her team are wonderful. She works for you. I now have my gum lines fixed, a set of straight, all natural looking teeth (I showed her my picture before accident so I look like me again!) and my whole face looks fresh. Taken years of me. I can smile!!!

Dr Germain is an excellent dentist and a lovely, warm and caring person. She is highly knowledgeable and skilled and takes the time to fully explain everything she does so that you feel comfortable and informed as the patient. As a Canadian, I previously had avoided dentists in the UK, preferring to wait until I returned to Canada several times a year to go to a dentist I trusted. I searched long and hard for a dentist I felt confident in in London, and I am so happy to have found an excellent dentist in Dr Germain. I would highly recommend her!
