At Pickering Village Dental Office in Ajax, our dentists may recommend porcelain veneers as a treatment option to correct discoloured, chipped, misaligned or gapped teeth.
What is a Dental Veneer?
Veneers are wafer-thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain. They are custom-made by a dental laboratory to match the shape or colour of your teeth, then bonded to the front of your natural tooth to help improve the colour, symmetry or shape of your smile.
At Pickering Village Dental Office, our dentists use veneers to create a more uniform, natural-looking smile for our patients. Porcelain veneers look very similar to natural teeth, since porcelain mimics the translucency and smoothness of tooth enamel.
Veneers are very thin pieces of tooth-shaped, durable porcelain that are custom-made to fit your smile. They are designed to improve the shape, colour or symmetry of your smile, and can protect your teeth from further damage and discolouration.
How Veneers Work
Your dentist will create an impression of your teeth, which will be used to make your custom veneers. Once your veneers have been manufactured, they will be bonded to the fronts of your natural teeth.
Made from an extremely thin piece of porcelain, veneers are custom-shaped to match your tooth, though they are minimally invasive and require less reshaping than dental crowns.
Porcelain imitates our tooth enamel's natural translucency, giving your smile a natural look and feel.
Benefits of Veneers
Are you looking to improve the shape of your individual teeth, or the evenness of your entire smile? You may want to consider dental veneers, which can permanently change the look of your smile for the better.
Dental veneers can resolve a number of conditions, including crooked, discoloured or worn teeth. They can also reduce unwanted spacing and alter the size of your teeth.
If cared for properly, dental veneers can last for many years. Talk to your dentist to find out if dental veneers are right for you.
