Dental Issues You Can Resolve Using Veneers

The problem with your smile has nothing to do with decayed or missing teeth. The truth is that there is something about them that leaves your smile looking less than perfect. Depending on what is wrong, dental veneers could be the ideal solution. In fact, this approach works well for several common issues. Here are four examples of problems that veneers can resolve.

Chipped or Cracked Teeth

Your otherwise healthy teeth are now chipped or cracked. The damage occurred because of an accident. While it’s great that you did not lose any of your teeth, looking in the mirror and seeing the jagged edges doesn’t exactly make you feel happy.

Veneers can be crafted to hide all the damage. The ragged edges of the chipped space are evened out with the rest of the tooth and make it look as if no damage occurred at all. Since the veneers can be tinted to match the rest of your teeth, no one will ever know. Along with the cosmetic benefits, veneers will also add some strength to the damaged tooth and prevent the situation from becoming worse.

Uneven Teeth

Your smile has never been as nice as you would like. That’s because several of your teeth are not shaped in a manner that blends in with the rest. You would love to have teeth that are even and straight, but you fear that will not happen unless you get implants or dentures.

The fact is that porcelainveneers can be used to build and even those uneven teeth so that they are similar in shape and size. You will go from having a smile that leaves you slightly embarrassed to being able to flash one that is truly attractive.

Worn Teeth

Teeth sustain quite a bit of wear and tear. It’s only natural for some of them to wear down over the years. While still healthy, they do show signs of aging. Since veneers cover teeth and can be used to hide defects, they are an ideal solution for building up worn teeth. Once the dental professional is finished with the work, your teeth will look much like they did when you were younger.

Spaces Between Teeth

There’s nothing wrong with the shade or shape of your teeth. The main complaint is the spacing. Small gaps are found in between several teeth. It would be nice if there was a way to fill in those gaps and improve your smile.

Veneers are the perfect solution. A professional can apply veneers to the teeth on each side of a gap. That helps to fill out the teeth a little and close the space. Best of all, the result is perfectly natural. Even someone who has known you all your life and is aware of the gaps will find it hard to tell which teeth are covered with the veneers.

Whatever type of dental issue you are facing, rest assured that one or more dental procedures will improve your smile. Talk with your dentist today and find out if veneers will help you achieve the smile that you want. If so, the work can be done quickly and you can begin to reap the benefits.

WE ARE OPEN!

Hello!

We are so excited to announce that the Royal College of Dental Surgeons has just given us the green light to begin seeing all non-essential and deferred treatment! Under the guidance of the RCDSO, all dentists in Ontario will now be able to re-open their practices for routine care and treatment. ​ Up until now, due to COVID19 pandemic restrictions, dentists have only been permitted to provide ​ emergency dental treatment. ​ This means that we have been unable to provide any other type of dental procedures since mid-March.

We can't wait to get back to work and begin seeing our patients again! We are spending this week implementing the changes mandated by the ministry of health and the dental association and will resume a normal schedule starting next week. You can rest assured that the safety of our community, our patients, and our team members are of utmost importance and we will have implemented additional safety measures and precautions. This is in addition to our already strict infection control protocols that were already in place.

Please be patient with us and give us some time to contact you; if you have had an appointment rescheduled, you are at the top of our list to call. We will be doing our best to ensure that everyone is re-booked as soon as possible. However, if you would like to get in sooner, or are having a concern, please feel free to give us a call.

What can I expect at my next dental appointment?

  • We will be ​pre-screening ​all patients prior to their appointments, and one more time upon arrival.
  • We are requesting that only the person who is booked for an appointment enter the office where ever possible (parents and caregivers will be permitted if necessary).
  • Upon arrival for your appointment, you will be asked to use hand sanitizer at the front entrance, and also to wear a mask until you are seated in the treatment room. (A mask will be provided if you do not have your own)
  • We will be staggering appointment times to limit the number of people in our offices to promote and encourage physical distancing.
  • There are hand hygiene stations located throughout the offices.
  • We have installed plexiglass barriers in the waiting room to protect our patients and team members.
