What Are Dental Veneers?
When patients have cosmetic concerns about their teeth, one option we may recommend is dental veneers. Often described as “tooth-like shells” that are placed over the fronts of the teeth, veneers effectively recreate the look of the teeth. Veneers can be used to change the colour, shape, size, spacing, or texture of the teeth.
How Veneers are Prepared and Placed
Although veneers are extremely thin, they require some of the tooth enamel to be removed before they are applied so that they can lay flat against the teeth and look natural. Our dentists will prepare the teeth to be treated before securing the veneers in place. After that, you’ll receive care instructions for your at-home dental hygiene routine to keep your veneers in place and looking great.
Ask Our Dentists About Dental Veneers
Veneers can resolve a range of cosmetic issues. Many patients choose veneers because they can correct cosmetic issues all at once without significant or long-term treatments. For example, if you would like to change the size and spacing of your teeth, you may choose to have veneers placed instead of having whitening treatments and orthodontic treatments. Your dentists will recommend the best options for your confidence, health, and long-term function.
