What are veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry option for people who wish to make a big difference in their smiles in a short amount of time. If your teeth are stained, gapped, oddly spaced or misaligned, porcelain veneers might be the answer you have been seeking to improve your smile. If you think of you the smile of your favourite celebrity, it was likely enhanced through cosmetic dentistry—and very likely through porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin, translucent pieces of porcelain that recreate the look of your teeth because they are ideally spaced and shaped. Depending on what you want to change about your smile—shape, size or colour—veneers can do it in just a couple of visits to the dentist.

To apply porcelain veneers, we will need to remove a small amount of your existing tooth enamel, making the procedure a permanent one. This tiny amount—usually less than a millimetre—is necessary to make room for the veneers and to avoid teeth that look unnaturally thick. 

We invite you to contact our dental clinic to talk about cosmetic dentistry options to achieve your smile goals.
