Dental veneers are small covers that are placed on the front part of teeth for practical and cosmetic purposes. Centre Dentaire Champlain offers composite reconstructions as well as porcelain dental veneers in Gatineau.
Dental veneers are custom-made and applied on your teeth after a rigorous exam analysing your teeth and oral health. The targeted teeth can also be slightly shaved, if needed.
Whether to correct chipped or stained teeth, or to rectify your tooth alignment, dental veneers can be the ideal solution.
Porcelain dental veneers are made of a material of exceptional quality that offers increased strength and lifespan. It is important to note that the manufacture and application of this type of veneer is performed in 2 appointments.
Our qualified dentists at Centre Dentaire Champlain in Gatineau first take a print of your teeth, which is then sent to a specialised laboratory to create the veneers. During the second appointment, your teeth are cleaned and the veneers are posed using an adhesive resin that is then hardened using a beam of light.
Composite veneers are a quicker and more economical option, because their application only requires one appointment. First, a composite resin is prepared based on the colour and finish of the adjacent teeth. The dental veneer is then applied and modelled correctly. As with the porcelain model, a beam of light is used to harden the resin and finish the process.
