What is a Dental Veneer?
A dental veneer is an ultra-thin piece of material that a dentist applies to your teeth to hide flaws like shallow cracks, chips, or stains. The chips and cracks are not structurally damaging to teeth. Otherwise, a tooth extraction or another procedure may be necessary.
Prepping a Tooth for a Dental Veneer
To add a veneer to a tooth, some of the enamel needs removing to make room for it. Using a dental grinder, the dentist will remove about 1/2 millimeter of enamel. After the dental veneer comes from the dental laboratory, the dentist will put it up to the tooth to trim excess material for a precise fit. Then, after finishing the trimming, the dentist will glue the veneer in place.
Dental Veneer Materials
Our dentists at Arlington Dental offer dental veneers in Toronto, ON, consisting of porcelain or composite resin. Most patients choose porcelain veneers because it looks more like real tooth enamel. Light reflects off the material like it does enamel, so it looks more realistic than composite veneers.
However, if cost is a concern that you have about these cosmetic pieces, then composite resin is less expensive than porcelain. Our dentists are skilled at sculpting the material so that a veneer looks real, and it can cover the flaws of the tooth nearly perfectly.
If your teeth embarrass you because of their imperfections, you no longer need to put up with them. Our dentists at Arlington Dental can order dental veneers in Toronto, ON, to cover teeth so that any flaws get hidden. With your teeth looking their best, you and those closest to you will notice as you gain more confidence, especially as you start smiling and laughing again.
