Enhance your Smile with Porcelain Veneers 

At Respond Dental, we know how vital it is to have a beautiful smile. When flaws and imperfections are visible, they can cause patients to feel incredibly self-conscious about how the smile looks when they are sharing it with others. Several solutions may be available to patients who have chipped, stained, rotated, misaligned, or gapped teeth. However, one of the most beneficial is that of the porcelain veneer. North York, Ontario patients with similar imperfections may find that porcelain veneers are a fast, effective, and long-lasting way to address flaws. 

What is a porcelain veneer? 

A porcelain veneer is a restoration made of ceramic. It is extremely thin, which allows it to be placed onto a natural tooth without adding additional bulk. In fact, many of our veneers can be placed without shaving the front of the tooth down. That allows the treatment to be reversible if patients choose to address the issue with an alternative down the road! We also offer composite veneers, though patients will want to understand that this material is not stain-resistant and may need replacement earlier than traditional porcelain veneers. 

Who is a candidate for porcelain veneers? 

The best candidates for veneers and other cosmetic dental restorations are patients with a healthy smile free from periodontal disease and tooth decay. Patients may have teeth near the front of the smile that can be covered with porcelain veneers to enhance the appearance and disguise problem areas. Porcelain veneers can address: 

  • Misaligned teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Permanently stained teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Unusually shaped teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth 

During a consultation appointment, patients have the opportunity to ask about veneers or other treatments that can improve the smile. 

Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
