Our dentists at Pickering Smiles use veneers as a cosmetic dental procedure to help change the look of your smile.
A dental veneer is a very thin shell that is attached to the front of your natural teeth. Often made of porcelain or composite resin, they can help with a variety of dental issues such as discoloured, worn or crooked teeth.
If your dentist recommends a composite resin veneer, the process is much like dental bonding. This type of veneer can usually be applied in one visit.
If your dentist recommends a porcelain veneer, they will begin by taking impressions of your teeth so that a custom veneer can be created for you. Once the veneer is ready, your dentist will bond it to your tooth. Generally, porcelain veneers take at least two dental visits.
Veneers can help to restore the shape of your individual teeth.
They can be used to change the shape of teeth that are too big, too small, or that have too much spacing.
They may be a less invasive option to dental crowns, and are often used to treat a number of issues such as misaligned, broken or discoloured teeth.
