At Kennedy East Dental in Hamilton, our dentists may recommend porcelain veneers as a treatment option to correct discoloured, chipped, misaligned or gapped teeth.
What is a Dental Veneer?
These durable, razor-thin pieces of tooth-shaped porcelain are custom-made by a dental laboratory to match the colour and shape of your teeth. A veneer can help create a more uniform smile.
At Kennedy East Dental, our dentists can use veneers to improve the shape, symmetry and appearance of your smile. The restoration is bonded to the front of your natural tooth and imitates the smoothness and translucency of tooth enamel.
If cared for properly, dental veneers can last for many years.
Why would I need a dental veneer?
Whether you're looking to improve the shape or colour of an individual tooth or an entire smile, dental veneers can help reduce the appearance of gaps and misalignments. They can also be matched to the colour of your natural teeth.
How Veneers Work
To create custom veneers, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth to ensure the restorations fit your specific smile.
Once your veneers have been made, they will be affixed to the fronts of your natural teeth.
Created from a razor-thin piece of porcelain that looks and feels like natural tooth enamel, veneers can change the shape and size of your teeth, as well as mask discolouration.
Veneers in Hamilton: The Benefits
For patients who wish to improve the shape of individual teeth or the symmetry of their entire smile, dental veneers may be the best option. Less invasive than dental crowns, they don't require as much reshaping of your teeth.
Dental veneers can address a range of cosmetic issues, including worn, crooked, or discoloured teeth. They can also reduce unwanted spacing and change the size of your teeth.
