Time and age can take their toll on our smiles. After all, our teeth get plenty of wear every day. With today’s dentistry techniques and technology, our dentists in Etobicoke at North Queen Dental can restore chipped, cracked, broken, or discoloured teeth … and make your smile look better than ever – with dental veneers!
In this quick blog, we highlight how veneers can disguise the tooth flaws you’d prefer to keep to yourself.
What is a dental veneer?
A veneer is an extremely thin – yet strong – tooth-coloured composite resin or porcelain shell that covers the front surface of your tooth. Here are some of the benefits of veneers, in addition to helping your smile stand out:
- Brighten teeth that have been discoloured by coffee, tea, red wine, or even medications like tetracycline
- Hide cracks, small gaps, and chips
- Correct misshapen teeth
- Straighten the look of slightly crooked or recessed teeth
- Create uniformity in your smile by correcting color, shape, and size of a tooth (or teeth).
It can take either one or two visits to our office to prepare your teeth and apply veneers, depending on the type we use for your unique circumstance, but whichever we use, both porcelain and composite are beautiful and have their own unique benefits.
A healthy shiny smile goes a long way. But many of us aren’t completely satisfied with how we look when we flash our pearly whites … when they become stained, dull, or damaged. If you think dental veneers may help you smile more, give us a call. Let’s get your smile on!
Yours in excellent dental health,
Dr. George Vouronikos & Dr. Mary Sakarya, general dentists in Etobicoke
