Dental Veneers in Woodbridge, ON
What is a dental veneer?
A dental veneer is a thin cover or shell made of porcelain or composite resin material. This thin shell is permanently bonded to the front of your existing teeth to improve the appearance of the tooth and your smile.
They are used to improve the appearance of teeth that are discoloured, stained, chipped, misaligned, prematurely worn down and uneven. In some cases, they can also be used to close the space between two teeth or to fix gap teeth. This is a common cosmetic dental procedure that produces great results in a short amount of time.
What is the process?
For a dental veneer to be placed on top of a tooth, the tooth must be prepared first. This means that your dentist will remove a small amount of the tooth structure to create space for the dental veneer to fit into.
Once the tooth is prepared or prepped, a dental impression of the tooth is taken. The dental impression is sent to a dental laboratory where it is used to custom-make the dental veneer. The dental veneer will be made to match the colour, shape, and size of your natural teeth for a natural look.
Once the dental veneer is made, your dentist will permanently bond the dental veneer to your prepared tooth.
