Frequently Asked Questions

What is a veneer?

This restoration can be thought of like an artificial fingernail. Wafer-thin, it’s bonded to the front of a tooth to give it a rejuvenated look.

What types of problems can veneers address?

Veneers can make a tremendous improvement in your smile. They are appropriate for addressing issues such as:

  • Discolouration
  • Chipped teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Gapped teeth

If you think that you might be interested in veneers but aren’t sure that they will work for you, we’ll be happy to book you in for a consultation so that you can learn more about them and what they can do for you.

What makes a veneer preferable to a dental crown?

When you receive veneers, it’s a conservative option that requires a small amount of removing the existing tooth structure. Since your existing teeth are kept nearly fully intact, veneers may be a better option for you than a crown, which requires more of the tooth to be removed.

Which materials can veneers be made from?

There are two materials that you can have your veneers created from: porcelain and composite. If you choose porcelain, you’ll enjoy the most aesthetically pleasing and durable option. It requires two visits. At your first visit, we’ll take impressions/scans and prepare your teeth. Your veneers are then custom-fabricated in our laboratory, and you’ll return to have them bonded onto your teeth.

Composite veneers can be completed in a single appointment. While they will look great, they aren’t as durable as porcelain. They are, however, a more budget-friendly option. We’ll go over the advantages and disadvantages of each with you so that you can decide how you’d like to proceed.
