Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Dental veneers at Algonquin Smiles are thin shells made of high-quality porcelain that Dr. Audrey bonds directly to the front surfaces of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can improve the shape, length, and color of your teeth to give you a radiant and dazzling smile.

How can I get my perfect smile?

Whether your dream is to restore your damaged teeth to the bright, happy smile you had when you were younger, or to design a whole new Hollywood-level smile, feel free to show Dr. Audrey images of your ideal smile.

Dr. Audrey takes great care to create porcelain veneers that bring out your natural beauty while still getting you the smile you want. She works with you to design the perfect shade, shape, and length of your veneers.

What improvements can porcelain veneers make to my smile?

If your teeth and gums are healthy, Dr. Audrey uses veneers to cover teeth that are:

  • Cracked or broken
  • Misshapen
  • Out of alignment
  • Gapped
  • Discolored

What are some of the advantages of veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a low-maintenance way to improve your smile. You clean and floss them twice a day, just as you do your normal teeth. But with veneers, you no longer have to worry about whitening treatments. Veneers are stain-resistant, so you can drink red wine and coffee without discoloring your new teeth.

As with your natural teeth, you must be careful not to bite or chew hard substances, such as ice. You should never use your natural teeth or porcelain veneers as a tool. With proper care, your porcelain veneers should last 10 years or more.

How long does it take to get veneers?

If you have periodontal disease or decayed teeth, Dr. Audrey resolves those issues first. When you’re ready for veneers, Dr. Audrey meets with you at least three times.

At your first appointment, she takes impressions of your teeth and learns about your goals. After the lab creates your veneers, she fits and shapes them during your second consultation. Finally, after you’ve worn the temporary veneers for a while, Dr. Audrey checks to ensure that they are fitting and functioning optimally.
