Smile Design / Porcelain Veneers

Your smile is the ultimate fashion accessory! We offer a variety of smile enhancement services to improve the shape, alignment, colour, and more so that you love your smile!

Why do I need a new smile?

Porcelain veneers may be an elected procedure for several reasons. If you have severely worn down teeth caused by grinding of the teeth, then you may need your front teeth built up to correct your bite. Your canine teeth or “eye teeth” need to be strong and pointed in order to correctly separate your back teeth when chewing in side-to-side motions, otherwise you may wear your back teeth too quickly.

Also, if you have large cavities and/or restorations on your front teeth, porcelain veneers may be helpful to restore teeth. Lastly, some people may choose porcelain veneers simply as a cosmetic procedure. There may be severe discoloration of the teeth that cannot be corrected by whitening, such as in fluorosis or tetracycline staining. Teeth that have one or more spaces in between can also be corrected by veneers. Your dentist can design a beautiful smile for you that suits you and looks natural.

Treatment Options / Smile Enhancement Techniques

No Tooth Removal Veneers

Preserving your natural tooth structure provides the most benefit to you, as it is stronger than any dental material that may be placed in your mouth. Durathins no-tooth-removal veneers are a great option instead of traditional veneers, as no tooth enamel is removed. The ‘contact-lens’ thin porcelain is applied directly on top of your natural teeth. They are very strong once adhered. They can also be removed at any time in the future, and your natural smile would then be still intact underneath!

Laser Gum Contouring

If you have a ‘gummy’ smile or uneven gum tissue, laser gum contouring can help to make your smile appear wider and more youthful. A soft-tissue diode laser is used to remove some of the extra gum tissue around your tooth, revealing more of your natural tooth underneath. Healing begins immediately in the gums after gum contouring with a laser, making the healing process quicker and painless.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure, and it takes just about an hour in the dental chair. We protect your lips and gums, and carefully apply a light-activated whitening gel to your teeth. Results are typically 3 shades lighter after one treatment and there is a shorter duration of sensitivity compared to home whitening kits. Touch-ups can be done either as another in-office whitening appointment, or with a customized touch-up kit made just for you.
