How long your dentistry and your natural teeth will last depends on you. When we provide dentistry and restorative work for patients, we recommend certain dental care routines to improve the longevity of your restorations so you can protect your investment.
How to Care for Your Dental Veneers
Here are some ways that you can prolong the life of your dental veneers:
Don’t skimp on brushing and flossing – Make sure you brush your teeth for at least two minutes twice daily and that you floss your teeth properly. This step alone can dramatically improve the length of time you can enjoy your porcelain veneers.
Follow the six-month rule – Having dental exams and cleanings at a minimum of every six months will help us help you. Even when you brush and floss, you can still develop tartar and decay. Regular dental exams will help minimize this problem and protect your smile.
Don’t chew that – Avoiding bad habits like crunching ice can protect your natural teeth and your dentistry. Veneers are strong, but you can damage them by biting down on hard substances.
Mind your grind – If you grind your teeth during sleep, opting for a nightguard will help minimize the damage your veneers suffer.

Veneers provide the most dramatic results as part of your cosmetic dentistry treatment plan. We provide beautiful dental veneers in our Burnaby, BC dental office as a solution to many aesthetic problems.
Adds Length to Worn Teeth
A chronic teeth grinding habit, called bruxism, can lead to worn down or short-looking teeth. Dental veneers add length so that your smile looks young and natural again.
Dental veneers can wear or break when constantly exposed to teeth grinding. Wearing a nightguard every night can protect them, along with your natural teeth.
Improves Tooth Colour
Medications, demineralisation, and deep stains may keep you from smiling. Veneers completely cover teeth and can improve colour. In some cases, teeth whitening before you have veneers will give you even better results.
Close Gaps Between Teeth
A gap between teeth can be embarrassing, but having braces seems a bit extreme. In some cases, porcelain veneers can close gaps between teeth without braces or Invisalign. This reduces treatment time and the steps involved in achieving your dream smile.
Make Teeth Look Uniform
If you have one or two teeth that look out of place, porcelain veneers can make your smile look perfect and uniform.

The porcelain veneers process is multi-step. If you have chipped, cracked, discolored or uneven teeth you may be a candidate for this dental procedure. At Central Park Dental Clinic, we work passionately to provide you with a beautiful smile.
If you think you could be a good candidate for dental veneers, the first step is to arrange a consultation with your cosmetic dentist. During your initial assessment, you can outline your smile goals to go over your dental options. During this time, an impression of your teeth may be made.
Once your impressions have been fabricated, your tooth will be prepped for the composite veneer. Generally, a small amount of tooth enamel may be removed, and your dentist will provide temporary veneers. At your next appointment, the temporary veneers will be replaced with your permanent porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are bonded to your tooth and resist staining, making them a natural-looking smile enhancer.
