A veneer is a thin layer of life-like porcelain that is bonded to the surface of a natural tooth to enhance its shape, color, or size.

Dental veneers are used by the cosmetic dentist who may restore a single tooth that is fractured or discolored to restore its appearance, or multiple teeth to create a more dramatic makeover. Veneers can fill spaces between teeth, lengthen teeth, and provide a uniform color and shape to teeth. They require minimal to no tooth preparation, which appeals to a lot of people considering improving their smile.

Dental veneers are custom-made laminates of tooth-coloured material designed to cover the front surfaces of teeth. A Porcelain Veneer is a thin layer of life-like porcelain that is bonded to the surface of a natural tooth to enhance its shape, color, or size. They are bonded to the teeth creating a beautiful and attractive smile. Veneers can completely reshape a person's teeth and smile, leaving teeth as smooth as porcelain. They are very durable and will achieve a long lasting smile.

Treatment Procedure

Veneers usually require little or no anesthesia throughout the procedure. The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. Aa impression of the teeth is taken and a shade is chosen. On a second visit, a bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light is used to harden and set the bond.

Candidate for Porcelain Veneers:

  • People who have chipped or broken teeth
  • People with discolored teeth
  • People with uneven or irregularly shaped teeth
  • People with gaps between their front teeth

As more and more options are offered in cosmetic dentistry, people are becoming more aware of their options, seeking ways to improve their smile, and not just seeking procedures necessary for health reasons. Restoring teeth is no longer the only concern. Improving the colour, shape or arrangement of teeth has become another reason to visit the dentist, asking him/her for a Hollywood smile.
