What is a Dental Veneer?
Veneers are thin pieces of tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom-made by a dental laboratory to match the shape and colour of your teeth.
Drs. Daniel McKenna & Robert Dunphy's team use veneers to give our patients a more uniform smile. To change the symmetry, shape, or colour of your smile, your dentist bonds the restoration to the front of your natural tooth.
How Veneers Work
Your dentist will create an impression of your teeth that will be used to create your custom veneers.
Your veneers will be bonded to the fronts of your natural teeth once they have been created.
Veneers are made from a razor-thin piece of porcelain and are custom-shaped to fit your tooth. The porcelain should closely resemble the natural translucency of tooth enamel and has a very natural appearance and feel.
Features of Veneers
If you want to change the shape of individual teeth or the evenness of your entire smile, dental veneers are a less invasive alternative to dental crowns.
Worn, crooked, or discoloured teeth are among the issues that dental veneers can correct. They can also change the size of your teeth and reduce unwanted spacing.
Dental veneers can last for many years if cared for properly.
