Custom Porcelain Veneers
You may have often thought about how nice it would be to have a completely different smile. Is there any way you can change the way your smile looks? Thanks to dental veneers, you have the opportunity to make a big change!
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is bonded over the front surface of a tooth to improve its appearance. In most cases, several veneers are placed side-by-side on neighboring teeth to transform the way your entire smile looks. Veneers are usually only placed on top front teeth as these are the ones that show when you smile. Veneers provide a “false front” that can revolutionize your smile.
Improve Your Smile’s Appearance
We use veneers to address a number of aesthetic concerns such as teeth that look:
- Uneven or worn
Bonding your veneers over the front of your teeth does not change what is behind them, but rather what people see when you’re talking or smiling. Dr. Sekhon frequently uses veneers for people who want to change the appearance of their smile.
What Veneers Can Do
If your front teeth have large fractures or decay, then more extensive restorative work will likely be necessary. Veneers are a superficial treatment designed to boost your smile’s appearance. Crowns or fillings are usually the better option for reinforcing weakened front teeth.
An Essential Part of Transforming Your Smile
Veneers can be used alone, or with teeth whitening and porcelain crowns for a more dramatic effect. Most of the time, Dr. Sekhon will recommend placing at least 6 to 8 veneers side-by-side for full effect. A personalised comprehensive examination and smile consultation with Dr. Sekhon will help you to decide on the perfect combination of services for your needs. All treatment is provided by a general dentist. For more complex cases, we often refer our patients to a specialist for treatment.
