Veneers

Our family dentists at Odyssey Dental Care in Winnipeg offer veneers, a cosmetic treatment for patients in East Kildonan and Transcona, who wish to correct discoloured, chipped, gapped, misaligned or aged teeth. 


Porcelain Veneers 

Porcelain veneers are very thin shells that are attached to the front of your teeth and are shaped and matched to blend seamlessly with the rest of your natural teeth. 

What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers can help rectify the following structural and cosmetic dental health concerns:

  • Chips

  • Cracks

  • Gaps between teeth

  • Minor misalignment

  • Discolouration 

In order to have porcelain veneers placed, patients should:

  • Have good periodontal and overall oral health

  • Be committed to proper oral care and hygiene

  • Have specific cosmetic goals, which they can articulate to the dentist at their initial consultation, as well as realistic expectations

  • Have a sufficient amount of healthy enamel, as the dentist usually has to remove a thin layer of enamel before placing veneers

How do I take care of my porcelain veneers?

Maintain proper oral hygiene

Veneers can collect plaque and tartar build-up exactly the same way natural teeth do, which is why it is so important to keep up with your dental hygiene routine.

Brush your teeth twice per day, floss daily, and be sure to get a dental cleaning every year.   

Avoid chewing on hard objects

Like with natural teeth, chewing on hard objects such as pens and ice, can potentially damage your veneers.

If you chew on hard objects, it could cause your veneers to chip or become damaged.

Avoid grinding and clenching teeth

Common habits such as grinding and clenching teeth can wear down your veneers and can cause severe damage to the porcelain.
