Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. It is often the material of choice for those looking to make slight position alterations or changes to the tooth size or colour.
Dental veneers are a hugely popular form of smile correction. They improve the appearance of your front teeth and give you the straight white smile you’ve always wanted. Veneers are thin pieces of tooth-coloured porcelain that mask smile imperfections like the following:
- Gapped or Crooked teeth
- Heavily Stained or discoloured teeth
- Worn or chipped teeth
Crooked teeth and other aesthetic dental issues are normally corrected using orthodontics, but your dentist may recommend veneers to cover stained enamel and minor spacing problems.
Porcelain veneers are bonded onto the front of your teeth to provide you with a straight and attractive smile. Due to the layer of porcelain being so thin, they give the illusion of natural teeth in the most discreet way possible so no one will ever guess that you had cosmetic work done. Once in place, your veneers will last for years with proper care, letting you enjoy the benefits of beautiful straight teeth for a long time.
During the initial consultation, your dentist will examine your mouth, teeth, and gums to see if you are a good candidate for veneers. Then we gently modify the surface of your front teeth to accommodate the new restoration, take impressions, and send them to a dental laboratory that will create your veneers from tooth-coloured porcelain. When they arrive at our office, we will call you in to have them fitted.
