What are veneers?
Veneers are thin, tooth-coloured layers of porcelain or ceramic that are adhered to your front teeth. At Dr. Crapo & Associates, our custom-made veneers are designed to fit each tooth perfectly, giving you a natural and attractive smile that you’ll be proud to show off.
Benefits of porcelain veneers
There are many benefits to having veneers, including:
They look and feel natural. Porcelain veneers are customized to fit the unique shape and colour of your teeth, so they blend in seamlessly with your natural smile. Most people wouldn’t even be able to tell the difference between the veneers and your real teeth.
They’re low maintenance. Porcelain veneers don’t require any special care. Simply brush and floss as you normally would and enjoy your beautiful new smile. Moreover, since porcelain veneers are non-porous, they resist permanent stains and cavities better than natural tooth enamel.
They last a long time. With proper care, most porcelain veneers can last at least 10 years without chipping or cracking. That means you can enjoy your new smile for years to come.
Plus, getting veneers is minimally invasive and requires little to no anesthesia. It’s a quick and easy way to transform your smile without any major discomfort.
Frequently asked questions (FAQs)
Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions about veneers.
How are porcelain veneers different from composite veneers?
Porcelain is a much stronger material than composite resin. Porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years, while composite veneers may only last four to eight years. Porcelain veneers also offer better coverage for imperfections like chips, cracks and stains.
What dental issues can porcelain address?
Porcelain veneers can be used to shorten, lengthen, realign or widen teeth, as well as hide chips, cracks and stains. If you’re self-conscious about a gap between your teeth, porcelain veneers can give you back your confidence.
What’s the process of getting porcelain veneers?
First, the dentist will trim the tooth that will receive the veneer. Then, they’ll take impressions of your teeth to create a custom-fit veneer. Finally, the dentist will bond the veneer to your tooth using a special dental cement.
Are porcelain veneers permanent?
While porcelain veneers are thin, they’re bonded firmly to your teeth to ensure they last for many years. With proper care, your porcelain veneers can last for a decade or more.

Easy appointment scheduling
When Janet first visited our office, she was not yet a patient of ours. Instead, she came in with her husband Gary as he was having a consultation done. She asked us about some of the problems she was experiencing in her jaw, and we booked her for her own consultation shortly after.
“The staff is so great! They’re so friendly. We live in Port Alberni, and it was worth it to us to drive down to Victoria to visit Dr. Crapo because the staff are so professional. The end result… I’m thrilled! I work full time, and they were very good about scheduling it. I get a lot of compliments on my teeth. My bite is just perfect!”
