Cosmetic Dentistry

Aesthetic and cosmetic dentistry includes smile enhancing treatment such as veneers. Porcelain veneers are very thin shells that are custom created to cover the front facing surface of your teeth in order to smooth, whiten and straighten your smile. They are manufactured from a clear, ceramic material that looks identical to the natural enamel on your teeth, providing you with the bright and shining smile you deserve.

Treatment Process

Step 1: Your first step is to schedule an initial visit to McAllister Dentistry in Ottawa for your initial evaluation and assessment to determine the proper cosmetic dentistry procedures for you.

Step 2: The application of resin or porcelain veneers begins at your first appointment, though it may take a second appointment to complete the application. For resin veneers, your dentist will apply a composite resin that perfectly matches the colour of your natural teeth. When it has hardened, your dentist will shape and polish the tooth until it looks and feels bright, natural and beautiful. For porcelain veneers, you can receive a local anesthetic/freezing before the dentist removes a tiny layer of enamel from your teeth to create space for the veneers. A mold will then be made of your teeth to customize your veneers. At your next visit, your dentist will glue the porcelain veneers to your teeth.

Step 3: Regular care of your veneers is necessary – including brushing and flossing just as you would your regular teeth. Should any issues arise, contact our team of dentists in Ottawa for a follow up appointment.
