At Sheppard Yorkland Dental, our dentists offer porcelain veneers as an effective way to correct the appearance of discoloured, chipped, misaligned or gapped teeth for our North York patients.
What is a Dental Veneer?
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom-made by a dental laboratory to match the shape and colour of your natural teeth.
At Sheppard Yorkland Dental, our dentists can use veneers to create a more uniform smile for our patients by bonding the veneer to the front of your natural tooth, changing the symmetry, shape or colour of your smile.
Dental Veneers in North York: How They Work
When you visit Sheppard Yorkland Dental for veneers, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth in order for your custom veneers to be precisely fitted the shape of your natural tooth.
Once your veneers have been made, your dentist will bond the veneer(s) to the fronts of your natural teeth.
Made from extremely thin pieces of porcelain, veneers are custom-shaped to match the shape of your natural tooth. Porcelain imitates the natural translucency of tooth enamel and gives veneers a very natural look and feel.
Features of Veneers
If you are looking to alter the shape or colour of individual teeth or the evenness and symmetry of your entire smile, you may want to consider dental veneers as a less-intrusive alternative to dental crowns.
Dental veneers can be used to resolve worn, crooked, or discoloured teeth. They can also reduce unwanted spacing and change the size of your teeth.
With proper care dental veneers can last for many years.
