At Westport Dental in Port Moody, our dentists may recommend porcelain veneers as a treatment option to correct discoloured, chipped, misaligned or gapped teeth.
What is a Dental Veneer?
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom-made to match the shape and colour of your teeth by a dental laboratory.
At Westport Dental, our dentists use veneers to create a more uniform smile for our patients. Your dentist bonds the restoration to the front of your natural tooth to help change the symmetry, shape or colour of your smile.
How Veneers Work
First, an impression of your teeth is taken which is used to custom make your veneers. Once your veneers have been made, they will be bonded to the fronts of your natural teeth.
Veneers are razor-thin and custom-shaped to match your tooth. The porcelain imitates the natural translucency of tooth enamel and has a very natural look and feel.
Benefits of Veneers
If you are looking to change the shape of individual teeth or the evenness of your whole smile, veneers may be a good option for you. Ask your dentist if you require veneers or a dental crown.
Dental veneers can resolve worn, crooked, or discoloured teeth and also reduce unwanted spacing.
