Digitally Designed & Crafted With Care

Cosmetic dental concerns like spacing, worn down enamel, chips and stains are no less valid than any other dental issue. You deserve to feel confident in your smile, because that confidence carries over into everything you do. And, you don’t need to have extensive dental treatment when your teeth are otherwise healthy and you don’t need multiple procedures if you have several smile concerns. At Nest, Dr. Sonia Sahi uses a combination of digital technology, artistry and attention to detail to create custom porcelain veneers. By bonding the veneers to the front of your teeth, she can transform your smile and mask multiple imperfections with a single procedure.

Come In For A Consult And Digital Preview

When you visit Nest for our Vancouver porcelain veneers, you’ll chat with Dr. Sahi about your smile concerns and goals. A team member will take quick, comfortable digital dental impressions that Dr. Sahi will use to build a 3D model of your mouth. At this visit, she’ll show you a digital preview of what your new smile will look like.

02.

Test Drive Your Veneers

Dr. Sahi will remove a thin layer of your surface enamel so that the veneers will fit. She’ll bond temporary veneers to your teeth to protect them. The temporaries will give you a chance to try out your restorations and make sure you’re thrilled with how they look and feel before having your permanent ones placed.

Show Off Your New Smile

Dr. Sahi will remove your temporary veneers and make any final adjustments. She’ll then bond your permanent veneers to your teeth before shaping and polishing them. All that’s left for you to do is admire your stunning smile in the mirror (look as long as you want; we don’t judge).

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Versatile and Convenient

Veneers can address a pretty impressive range of smile concerns, including chips, stains, worn enamel and misalignment. And, instead of individually correcting each issue, we can fix them all with a single procedure.

01.

Gorgeous and Natural

Our porcelain veneers are custom designed and milled to look and feel just like natural teeth. No one will guess you weren’t born with your smile. Veneers also help support the musculature of your face to give you a little lift.

02.

Lasting

Porcelain veneers might be super thin and beautiful, but they’re also incredibly strong. They resist staining and let you chew and eat without worry. Plus, with proper care, your dental veneers can last for decades.

What are porcelain veneers?

Veneers are thin shells, or wafers, made of ceramic porcelain. Dr. Sahi custom designs your Vancouver porcelain veneers based on a 3D model of your mouth. She removes a small amount of enamel and then bonds the veneers to your teeth to change the color, size, shape and even position of your teeth. Veneers are an excellent way to completely transform your smile in a single procedure.

What can veneers treat?

  • Gaps or spaces in between your teeth
  • Crooked, irregularly shaped or uneven teeth
  • Discolored teeth, including those that don’t respond to teeth whitening treatment
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Short or worn teeth
  • Teeth with surface defects like pitting

How are veneers created?

Our Vancouver cosmetic dentist, Dr. Sahi, has extensive training in cosmetic dentistry and smile design. We take digital scans of your teeth and the scans are used to create a 3D dental model. Dr. Sahi uses this model to design a smile that complements your facial features.

She’ll place temporary veneers based on her design so that you can test out your new grin and give her feedback. When you and Dr. Sahi agree on the plan, she’ll work closely with a trusted dental lab to mill your porcelain veneers. When the veneers are complete, they’re then hand glazed to give them beautiful, natural detail.

What are porcelain veneers made of?

Porcelain veneers are crafted from ceramic porcelain. Once they’re milled, they’re stained and glazed. Though veneers are thin, they’re strong and durable, providing resilience and strength similar to natural enamel.

How long do porcelain veneers last?

While, on average, porcelain veneers last for 15 years, with proper care, they can last for decades.

Does getting porcelain veneers hurt?

Getting porcelain veneers isn’t painful. Dr. Sahi only removes a small amount of your tooth enamel in order to get the perfect fit. She’ll give you local anesthesia first, so you’ll be numb for this part of the procedure. If you feel anxious about the process, we also offer sedation dentistry.

What’s the difference between veneers and dental crowns?

Dental crowns and porcelain veneers can both improve the appearance and function of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are extremely thin (about 1 mm in thickness) and are bonded to the front of your existing teeth. Dental crowns, on the other hand, are about 2 mm in thickness and cover the entire visible portion of your teeth.

Our Vancouver porcelain veneers are designed to fit while removing the least amount of enamel possible. They’re less invasive than crowns. For a crown, more of the tooth needs to be filed down prior to placement. If you have decay, a large filling or your tooth has a significant fracture or crack, a dental crown may be ideal. Since veneers need more tooth structure to support them, they’re a better option for those whose teeth are intact and are looking for cosmetic enhancements.
