What is a Dental Veneer?
Veneers are thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom-made to match the shape and colour of your teeth by a dental laboratory.
Dental veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth and have a natural look and feel.
Our dentists at Expressions Dental Care use veneers to give our patients a more uniform smile. Dental veneers can be used to alter the symmetry, shape, or colour of your smile.
How Veneers Work
Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth which will be used to create your custom veneers.
Once your veneers have been made, they will be bonded to the fronts of your natural teeth.
Veneers are custom-shaped to match your tooth and are made from a razor-thin piece of porcelain. The porcelain should closely resemble the natural translucency of tooth enamel and should have a very natural appearance and feel.
Features of Veneers
If you want to change the shape of individual teeth or the evenness of your entire smile, dental veneers are a less invasive alternative to dental crowns.
Conditions that dental veneers can resolve include worn, crooked, or discoloured teeth. They can also reduce unwanted spacing and change the size of your teeth.
Dental veneers can last for many years if cared for properly.
