At Family Dental Care Kitsilano - Dr. Harry Sangha Dentistry in Vancouver, our dentists may recommend porcelain veneers as a treatment option to correct discoloured, chipped, misaligned or gapped teeth.
What is a Dental Veneer?
Custom-made veneers are manufactured by a dental laboratory to match the shape and colour of your natural teeth.
At Family Dental Care Kitsilano - Dr. Harry Sangha Dentistry, our dentist uses these razor-thin pieces of tooth-shaped porcelain to create a more uniform smile for our patients. The dentist will bond the restoration to the front of your tooth to help improve the shape, symmetry or colour of your smile.
At Family Dental Care Kitsilano - Dr. Harry Sangha Dentistry, we offer veneers to our patients. Veneers can mask tooth discolouration and change the size and shape of your teeth to reduce the appearance of gaps and misalignment. You can have a smile that appears whiter and more even.
How Veneers Work
An impression will be taken of your teeth and used to create your custom veneers.
Once your veneers have been manufactured, your dentist will bond them to the fronts of your natural teeth.
Constructed from a very thin piece of porcelain, veneers are custom-shaped to match your existing teeth. The porcelain mimics the natural translucency of tooth enamel and has a natural look and feel.
Benefits of Veneers
Are you hoping to improve the shape of your individual teeth, or the evenness of your whole smile? You may want to consider dental veneers as a less intrusive alternative to dental crowns.
Dental veneers can alter the appearance of discoloured, worn, or crooked teeth for the better. They can also decrease unwanted spacing between teeth, and change the size of your teeth.
If cared for properly, dental veneers can last for many years.
