Dental veneers are often a great option for giving you the smile you've always wanted. There are different types of veneers for different types of problems, and a consultation with one of our skilled dentists will allow us to create a treatment plan for getting your smile to look exactly the way you'd like.

Resin Veneers

Resin veneers, otherwise knows as "direct veneers", are handmade by your dentist. They are made of a resin similar to normal filling material, and are blended in to your natural teeth. They can be used to improve the shape, colour or texture of your teeth, as well as being able to close unsightly gaps between your teeth. The beautiful thing about resin veneers is that they are minimally invasive, which means there is little to no removal of your natural teeth required. This is an additive process ie the resin is added on to your natural teeth. These types of veneers are placed in a single visit and are less expensive than other types of veneers. 

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain (ceramic) veneers are thin, durable shells that look like natural teeth. They are fabricated in a dental laboratory and custom fit to your teeth. This process is completed over 2-3 appointments, usually over a period of about 1 month. As part of the preparation process, your dentist will plan for the proper size, length and colour for your new smile, remove a small amount of tooth structure and take a 3D scan of teeth. You will be fitted with temporary veneers while the permanent veneers are made in the lab. Advanced materials and realistic shading provide a natural-looking result that is never too bulky or false looking. These veneers are stronger and more long lasting than the resin alternative, and give a truly marvellous cosmetic result. The gloss and shape of the veneers can be designed however you'd like. We can provide you with any type of porcelain veneers you desire, be they super white hollywood, or a more natural, blended approach. Anything is possible! Once your veneers are ready to be fitted, we try them in so you can have a look. If you love them, they are fitted on the same day. If you'd prefer them to be adjusted in some way, then we send them back and perfect them. By the time we glue in your new veneers, they will be exactly what you've always wanted.

The result is a beautiful, uniform smile that can make you look years younger.
