Our Dartmouth dentists at Evergreen Dental may recommend porcelain veneers to correct gapped, chipped, misaligned or discoloured teeth.
What is a Dental Veneer?
Veneers are custom-made by a dental laboratory to match the colour and shape of your teeth. These razor thin pieces of tooth-shaped porcelain are very durable and will withstand daily use provided they are maintained with excellent dental hygiene.
At Evergreen Dental, veneers are used to give our patients a more aesthetically pleasing smile. The restoration will be bonded to the front of your natural teeth to help improve the colour, symmetry and shape of your smile.
How Veneers Work
An impression of your teeth will be taken and used to produce your custom veneers.
Once your custom veneers have been created, they will be affixed to the fronts of your natural teeth.
Constructed from a razor-thin piece of porcelain, veneers are shaped to match your tooth. The natural translucency of the tooth enamel is replicated in your new veneer, which offers an incredibly natural appearance and function.
Benefits of Veneers
Hoping to improve the symmetry of your entire smile or the shape of an individual tooth? As a less intrusive alternative to dental crowns, dental veneers may be the right choice for you.
Patients with crooked, discoloured or worn teeth are good candidates for this procedure that can also change the size of your teeth or reduce gaps between them.
If cared for properly, dental veneers can last you for years to come.
