Elements Dental offers people in Victoria, BC the latest cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures. This includes smile makeover treatment, which can enhance the beauty of your teeth and gums.

While traditional smile makeovers are quite effective, more and more people have been turning to instant smile makeovers. Let’s discuss the instant smile makeover and what this treatment entails.

What Is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover refers to a combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. Generally these procedures involve multiple steps and multiple kinds of procedures, like combining dental bonding with teeth whitening.

An instant smile makeover means efficiently enhancing the aesthetics of a person’s smile using as few procedures as possible. That’s where porcelain veneers come into play.

About Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of dental ceramic that are affixed to the fronts of a person’s teeth. When porcelain veneers are in place, they are able to mask numerous cosmetic flaws that affect the smile.

Porcelain veneers blend in seamlessly with your natural tooth structure. Whether you’re in natural light or artificial light, few people will be able to tell that you have undergone cosmetic dentistry treatment. Numerous patients who’ve received porcelain veneers at our dentistry centre have been pleased by the cosmetic results.

Dental Problems Porcelain Veneers Can Treat

We have use porcelain veneers to treat the following problems at our Victoria, BC dental practice:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Dental stains
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Asymmetrical teeth
  • Uneven tooth size

This is a high degree of versatility, which makes porcelain veneers a go-to treatment option for many problems with smile aesthetics.

How Instant Is an “Instant” Smile Makeover?

Instant, relatively speaking, means two visits roughly 10 to 14 days apart. During this time, a patient can be fitted for veneers and a dental lab can custom create these veneers for optimal fit and aesthetics.

A traditional smile makeover, by comparison, could take several visits to the dentist and a few months. This is particularly true when patients suffer from multiple issues that veneers alone cannot treat.

The Benefits of an Instant Smile Makeover

The key benefits of an instant smile makeover include:

  • Fewer visits to the dentist are necessary
  • Less time is required for final results
  • The process is simple and straightforward
