Vancouver porcelain veneers create beautiful and highly realistic smiles. Vancouver porcelain veneers, also known as porcelain laminates, dental laminates or dental veneers, combine relatively old bonding technology with radically improved materials. In this way, they permanently bond an incredibly thin layer of porcelain onto the front of the tooth.

Vancouver Porcelain Veneers and Staining

One of the very best things about Vancouver porcelain veneers is that they cannot be stained. A friend of mine had his teeth bonded about 15 years ago. Remember, bonding technology has been around for quite some time--it's only the materials that have changed. My friend is a heavy smoker. The bonding material soaked up 15 years' worth of nicotine, and now my friend has two extremely yellow front teeth!

So how is he taking care of his discolored teeth? He is having an extreme makeover in Canada, by way of cosmetic dentistry. His old bonds will be removed, and new porcelain veneers will be applied. After seeing a number of before and after photos, he is eagerly looking forward to his results.

Veneers are incredibly strong. Although the veneer itself is delicate (after all, it's just a thin little piece of ceramic porcelain) it becomes very strong once it is bonded to the tooth. The results are permanent, dramatic and truly life-changing. Yellow, chipped, gapped and poorly aligned smiles are simply transformed by veneers.
