Dental veneers, also known as laminates, ceramic facets or ceramic/porcelain veneers, are very thin pieces of ceramic that resemble the outer surface of your teeth. At Dr.Tooth Dental Clinic, our dental veneers are custom made from high quality materials to fit your specific condition, making them not only strong and very durable but also natural looking ensuring best possible esthetic result. The term bonding often comes up which means the process of using chemical adhesive to bond the veneer onto the front side of the tooth.

One of the most commonly asked question is whether you are a suitable candidate for dental veneers. This type of dental restoration is used as a conservative option for dental crowns and is applicable to various situations that require esthetic attention such as:

  • Severely stained or discolored teeth
  • Unevenly spaced between teeth
  • Teeth are chipped or crooked
  • Holes and damage, especially at the central teeth

If you suffer any of the conditions listed above, but no signs of extensive decay, gum disease or severe teeth misalignment is present, then dental veneers are the best solution for you.

Normally, dental veneers can be made from 2 different types of materials, resin composite or porcelain/ ceramic. While both are effective, their usage is greatly varied depending on your objectives.

  • Composites veneers (direct) are often done in a single visit. The procedure involves a simple bonding of enamel directly onto your tooth’s surface.
  • Ceramic (indirect) generally is longer lasting as it doesn’t discolor or break down and with the help from our Westcoast Dental Lab your dental restorations can now look even more natural. This type usually requires two visits, more time and expertise.

The technology of accredited materials has advanced in cosmetic dentistry quickly with thinner veneers, new life like ceramics, and optimal strength for function.

When you first come in for the initial examination at our clinic, we require you to take X-rays, photos and impression to fully study your bite and tooth structure. A detailed treatment plan will then be brought forward and discussed therefore you are always aware of the ongoing events you are participating in. Communication is key factor in order to ensure the end result match your desire.
