For a Smile Makeover

Dental veneers are an excellent way to correct the appearance of a multitude of issues. Whether you are concerned about tooth discolouration, misaligned teeth, chipped teeth, or other concerns, dental veneers can transform your smile beautifully. Veneers look just like natural teeth, but better, giving you a more beautiful smile.

Custom Fit

Whether you choose porcelain veneers or composite resin veneers, we custom fit them perfectly to your teeth, and ensure they correct the flaws you are concerned about.

Prepare Enamel

We carefully and gently prepare your tooth enamel, for better results and functionality. Veneers are durable but the prepared tooth is minimally affected.

Securely Bonded

With a composite veneer, the tooth is slightly etched before the resin is cured onto the tooth. With porcelain, the tooth is prepared and the veneers are cemented with composite resin. Both are highly secure.

Transforming Smiles

Concerned About Your Smile?

Veneers are thin shells that are excellent for hiding many imperfections, such as gaps between teeth, slightly misaligned teeth, chipped teeth, and stained teeth. They can also even out the size and shape of your teeth for a perfect smile. Porcelain veneers and composite resin veneers are available and look just like natural teeth. Waterloo West cares about your overall oral health and ensures teeth and gums are healthy during all cosmetic dentistry.

Which Dental Veneer is Best?

There are advantages to both porcelain veneers and composite resin veneers. Your dentist will discuss which one may be best for you.

With porcelain veneers, thin shells of porcelain are shaped in a lab based on a mold of your teeth, then affixed to your teeth in a second appointment. Composite resin veneers are molded and shaped directly onto teeth that have been slightly etched, then hardened and polished, all in one visit.

Porcelain veneers require a second visit. On the first visit, a very thin layer of your teeth is removed, and a mold taken of your teeth, for custom veneers to be created at a lab. You will be given temporary veneers in the meantime. On your second visit, your porcelain veneers are cemented on. Porcelain veneers last longer when compared to composite veneers. They are highly stain-resistant, so you don't need teeth whitening afterwards. They are permanent and irreversible. Porcelain also has a beautiful translucent property that makes it look almost exactly like natural teeth.

Since composite veneers can be completed in one visit, they are faster. They require minimal preparation. The resin is matched closely to your natural tooth colour, or slightly lighter for a teeth whitening effect. Composite resin veneers may not last as long as porcelain, but they are much easier to repair. Composite resin veneers are also very natural looking.

Benefits of Veneers

Beautiful and Functional Veneers

Dental veneers do not damage natural teeth, and can in fact provide some additional strength and stability, although their prime function is cosmetic. You can use dental veneers the same way you use your normal teeth, with some general oral health care.

Reinforces Tooth Structure

Bonding dental veneers is a cosmetic dentistry procedure, as they are aimed at improving aesthetics, but veneers can add strength to teeth.

Covers and Camouflages Minor Imperfections

Dental veneers are unparalleled for correcting a range of imperfections in appearance; they can close gaps, straighten crooked teeth, give a uniform and even appearance, hide discolouration, and more.

Does Not Weaken Teeth

While the composite resin veneer process requires etching your enamel, and the porcelain veneer procedure needs a thin layer of tooth removed, both are completely safe and do not weaken teeth substantially, and are less invasive than crowns or caps.

Fully Customized Veneers for Comfort and Aesthetics

Perfectly Fitted Veneers

At Waterloo West Cosmetic Dentistry, we ensure your dental veneers are perfectly fitted for your teeth. We discuss treatment options with you, including deciding whether porcelain veneers or composite resin veneers would be best for your individual circumstances.

We also provide you with imaging, so you can see what your new veneers will look like, to ensure you will be happy with the shape and look of them.

Improperly fitted veneers can slip or come off and need fixing. Also if they are not attached properly, bacteria and particles can spread into the areas beneath your dental veneers, causing tooth decay or other issues. We are experienced dentists who take time to ensure veneers are fitted and bonded well, to protect your oral health.

Colour Matching

Perfectly Matched Veneers

Part of the process of creating your new veneers is finding the perfect colour match for your natural teeth. Although they cover your teeth, and shades can go slightly lighter for teeth whitening effects, a good match is essential for the best results and most natural look. We are experienced in choosing the best match for you.

To give you the most perfect new smile, this is an integral step of the procedure. Dental veneers should not be whiter than the whites of your eyes for a natural look. We also work with your skin tone to find a shade that provides contrast and looks great.

We take the time to do this properly, so you can feel confident in your appearance and the look of your smile.
