Veneers

Veneers

Teeth that are internally stained, or which are slightly too small or misshaped may benefit from veneers. A veneer covers the entire front surface of a tooth, while leaving most or all of the original structure fully intact. Some people choose to have multiple veneers while others will selectively use just one or two. After assessing your smile, our dentists can discuss which teeth may benefit most from veneers.

 

What are Veneers Made From?

Your veneers can be fabricated from porcelain or from composite resin. Porcelain veneers require minimal tooth preparation and are made in our dental laboratory, requiring two visits to Family Dental Care. With composite resin veneers, the material is applied directly to the surface of the tooth and is shaped and polished so treatment can be completed in one visit. Porcelain veneers will last longer, but composite resin is a lower cost solution that will last for several years.

You will be informed of the final price upon required consultation and/or examination.
Smile 1
Before before
After After

Patient has had a crown since he was in his teens and was not happy with the colour, shape and very inflamed gum above the tooth. The old porcelain fixed to metal crown was replaced with a full ceramic crown and the colour was matched by our ceramist.

The patient was thrilled with his new crown and so was his gum

Smile 2
Before before
After After

Patient attended as the porcelain veneer had totally fallen off the upper right front crown. The upper left crown porcelain is also chipping and wearing and the patient understands that in the long term both crowns need replacement with all ceramic aesthetic crowns so he does not have the same problem again in the future. In the meantime a composite resin veneer was bonded to the existing metal crown surface to help out patient keep smiling

Smile 3

After After

Patient wanted to fix the gap on the upper left next to her front tooth but did not want an implant. We were able to bond a ceramic bridge replacing the left side front tooth and improve our patients smile.
