Dental veneers are used to cosmetically enhance the appearance of one or more teeth. Veneers are very thin porcelain or resin shells that are customized for a desirable colour and shape. They are bonded to the surface of the teeth to reshape broken, misshapen or irregular teeth, as well as provide a solution for discoloured teeth that do not respond to traditional whitening treatments. Patients with veneers typically achieve a natural tooth appearance that is well-tolerated by the gums and also resistant to future stains.

Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a candidate for dental veneers?
Veneers can help if you have gaps between your teeth or teeth that are broken, chipped, irregularly shaped, or misaligned. To find out more about whether dental veneers are right for you, contact us to schedule a consultation.
What should I expect when I get veneers?
Before dental veneers can be placed, the surface of the teeth must be prepared for bonding. After administering a local anesthetic, your dentist will remove approximately half a millimeter from the surface of the teeth. You’ll then bite into a mould that will be used to form your veneers in a dental lab. When the veneers are ready, you’ll be asked to return to have them fitted, bonded, and adjusted.
