Dental Veneers make your teeth look like new!

Dental veneers, a popular cosmetic dentistry option, come in different colors, sizes, shapes, and lengths to fit any tooth. Otherwise known as dental porcelain laminates, these thin shells are custom prepared to match your existing teeth and they are attached only to the front of your teeth for aesthetic appearance.

Durable and natural looking

Made from resin composite material, these stain resistant veneers are both durable and natural looking.

With age, teeth lose their healthy white appearance because of additives to food and exposure to drugs including tobacco, fluoride, tetracycline or resin filling. Or they can be discoloured from a previous root canal treatment. Veneers can also be recommended for broken, misaligned, uneven, irregularly shaped or gapped teeth. All of these issues can cause discomfort for patients but the good news is that they can be corrected with dental veneers.

If you are searching for a solution to your unique dental problem, always consult your dentist first before setting your mind on a treatment. Your dentist will examine your teeth and then do an x-ray screening to better understand if there are any underlying issues that are not visible. Your dentist will also talk with you about your wellness, and help you to best choose an option that fits your particular needs.

If Dental veneer treatment meets your dental needs, an initial procedure of creating an aesthetic model of the teeth that require repair will be done during your first visit. It can take up to two weeks to prepare veneers in a dental lab. Next, the thin enamel layer will be removed from the tooth's surface. Then the veneer is pre-tested for bonding and best placement. Once everything is ready, the aesthetic tooth is “trimmed” to achieve the best fit, cleaned and slightly engraved to facilitate veneer bonding. After this, your dentist will apply special cement to glue the veneer onto your teeth.

While dental veneers can be a wonderful solution to improve dental aesthetics because they are well tolerated by gums and look natural, remember that this treatment is irreversible because the underlying tooth has been modified. Dental veneers require specialized care to be effective.
