Discoloured / Stained Teeth
To give the impression of a healthy, youthful smile, veneers are an ideal solution. If your teeth are discoloured or stained but otherwise healthy, you may be a good candidate for veneers.
Discoloured teeth can be a tell-tale sign of ageing. To combat this, veneers can be designed in a lighter shade as well as a more desirable shape to bring back youthfulness.
In some cases, light staining on the teeth may be better corrected with whitening treatments. Ask us today if you are a suitable candidate for veneers.
In cases where a patient is looking for a reasonable compromise to avoid a lengthy orthodontic treatment, veneers can be a great solution. Porcelain veneers cover the visible surface of teeth, creating a full, natural looking smile.
To enable the placement of veneers, the teeth will need to be prepared and may require slight reshaping. Once placed, veneers can create a straight, polished smile.
Porcelain veneer treatment is also a relatively quick process. Our veneer packages can be completed within 5 business days. While orthodontic treatments can take several months or years to complete.
Severe cases of crooked teeth may not be suitable for veneer treatments. As well, any oral concerns or decay will need to be addressed before veneers can be applied to teeth. To find out if you are a candidate for veneers, please contact us today.
Gaps Between Teeth
If you are looking to preserve as much of your natural teeth as possible, veneers may be a good solution for teeth with gaps. Veneers are very thin and require minimal preparation (filing) in order to be cemented to the teeth.
Veneers can be designed to fit seamlessly together so the smile sits perfectly. Below you can see our patient had gaps between their teeth which she was unhappy with. Our dentist Dr Dinos Kountouras placed 8 porcelain veneers as part of our 8 Veneer Smile Makeover Package and closed in the gaps.
Severe cases of widely spaced teeth may not be suitable for veneer treatment. Get a free assessment to see if you are a candidate for veneers today.
Porcelain veneers can be a good solution for patients with a narrow smile. By building the teeth out with veneers, it can create the appearance of a wider smile.
Veneers can also be created in a whiter shade of porcelain than a patient’s natural teeth. This helps to add to the impression of fuller teeth.
If your natural teeth are in a healthy condition and the narrowing of the arch is not severe, you may be a suitable veneer candidate.
Worn Down Teeth
Over time our teeth can wear down naturally. Habits such as biting on pens and teeth grinding can fasten this process. To restore the shape of teeth and make a smile appear full again, veneers may be a good solution.
However, severe teeth grinding will have to be addressed prior to any dental treatment. Instead of veneers, you may be more suited for restorative dental crown treatments. As well, you may consider wearing a nightguard to bed to protect your teeth from further wear.
