Do you feel uncomfortable smiling because of dental issues? Do you feel uncomfortable in situations like job interviews? Porcelain veneers are the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures. They help fix small dental defects in a smile. The best thing is they resemble natural teeth.
A dental veneer is a thin cover bonded to the front of a tooth to permanently improve its colour and shape. Porcelain is a ceramic material that looks like tooth enamel. Our dentist will advise on the company that offers the best porcelain veneers.
During the procedure, your impression will be sent to a dentistry lab, where the porcelain veneers will be made for your mouth. The veneers are then settled into place, re-designed and moulded to make sure they fit your mouth with precise detail. A follow-up may be scheduled about one or two weeks after the procedure to check your bite and answer your questions.
While 90% of our patients choose veneers, 10% choose lumineers. This are thin Empress veneers. They are basically ‘non-prep veneers’ requiring little to no removal of the tooth enamel when being applied. Our dentists use Emax porcelain for various teeth restoration procedures.

Clear aligner therapy is a technique of realigning the teeth using clear aligners, which are custom-made to fit on your teeth and nudge the teeth gently into a proper position.
Our dentist might refer you for more comprehensive orthodontic work if necessary. These kinds of decisions are made after a personal consultation with the dentist. If you would like to know more about how to improve your smile, contact our dental office. We serve patients in Barrie
Veneers use a thin coating of porcelain which is bonded to the top of the teeth to create a brighter and more stunning smile. The procedure helps repair teeth with general damage, chipping, staining, cracking or with gapped spaces between.
