The dentists at our Orleans clinic may recommend porcelain veneers as a treatment option to correct chipped, gapped, discoloured or misaligned teeth.
What is a Dental Veneer?
Veneers are custom-made in a dental laboratory to match the shape and colour of your teeth. These razor-think pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain can protect your teeth from further damage and discolouration.
At Dr. Sam Lee's dental clinic, our dentists can use veneers to create a more uniform smile for our patients. The restoration can be bonded to the front of a natural tooth to help improve its colour, shape or symmetry.
How Veneers Work
The dentist will take an impression of your teeth to create your custom veneers.
Once the veneers have been made, they will be bonded to the fronts of your natural teeth.
Constructed using a razor-thin piece of porcelain, veneers are 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
Looking to improve the shape of individual teeth or the evenness of your entire smile? You might consider dental veneers as a less intrusive alternative to dental crowns.
Dental veneers can correct many conditions such as discoloured, worn or crooked 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.
