Veneers

We're cosmetic dentists in Toronto who are dedicated to improving the appearance and functionality of your smile.

Customized Cosmetic Dental Treatment

We have a wide range of cosmetic dentistry solutions strictly dedicated to ensuring you’re always 100% confident in the appearance of your smile, but also ensure that your teeth work as they should for improved dental health. This is accomplished with the help of porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are a great alternative to dental crowns for your front teeth that have a minor crack or chip, are misshapen, have pits or small gaps, or are discoloured. And yes, they really are made of porcelain! Porcelain is one of the most durable, natural-looking and virtually stain-resistant dental materials used in modern cosmetic dentistry. When you contact us today, you can find out if they’re the right cosmetic solution for your specific smile.

What Are Porcelain Dental Veneers, Toronto?

Dental veneers are made from very thin layers of porcelain that are about 0.55mm in thickness which is why they appear almost translucent, much like your natural teeth. The tooth will need to be prepared first. This involves trimming the enamel down so the porcelain veneer can be bonded to the tooth’s surface without making it look super thick. This is a permanent decision. Once enamel is shaved down, it cannot be restored. Next, your customized, handcrafted porcelain veneers will be attached. Impressions will have previously been made to ensure your dental veneers are the size and colour of the rest of your natural teeth. Following the proper dental hygiene care at home, dental veneers can last upwards of 15-20 years before needing a touch-up. And yes, you can have multiple veneers. Typically, many patients request six to eight to improve the appearance of their front teeth.

Am I A Good Candidate For Porcelain Veneers?

If you’re searching for an appropriate cosmetic treatment in Toronto to improve the appearance of your smile but you have certain habits like grinding or clenching your teeth at night, not maintaining the proper dental hygiene, or have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, then porcelain veneers may not be the right solution for you. This doesn’t mean there are no treatment options for you. Speak to your dedicated Toronto cosmetic dentist here at Dentistry On Wellington about composite veneers. Just like porcelain veneers, composite veneers are attached to your natural tooth after it’s been prepared, although prepping your tooth for this procedure is minimal. They’re made from a white composite resin material – a mixture of plastic and glass. This is also what’s used to fill in a tooth after having a cavity removed (white fillings). They’re just as natural-looking and durable but may not last as long as porcelain veneers.

Nervous About Your Cosmetic Treatment?

We understand that patients may be nervous about visiting the dentist regardless of the procedure they’re having done, but that’s why we’re proud to offer our patients the chance to opt for sedation dentistry. Dentophobia is very common in patients of all ages. It can be intimidating and stressful visiting an office that has strange smells and sounds! But we’re here to help take care of you no matter what. When you contact us today about receiving porcelain veneers, let us know you’re interested in sedation and we’ll go over how it works, what you can expect, and feel rest assured knowing we’re fully dedicated to ensuring you walk away with the smile of your dreams.

We use nitrous oxide as a way to create a stress-free environment for our patients who are nervous about receiving veneers (or during any other procedure). It’s a completely safe way to calm your nerves. A mask will be placed over your mouth and nose and you should start to feel calmer almost instantly. Nitrous oxide is also referred to as laughing gas because you may find yourself feeling rather giddy and happy, but you’ll still be able to respond to our questions. After your veneers are placed and your appointment has come to an end, we’ll remove the mask and you’ll feel back to normal in no time and be able to drive yourself home.

Improving Confidence One Smile At A Time

There is more to veneers than just improving the appearance of your smile. In fact, the benefits of these thin layers of porcelain are endless. So, if you’re contemplating getting a veneer for one tooth or more, Toronto dentist, Dr. Friedman, and his team are excited to be able to offer your smile the care it truly deserves and thoroughly explain the advantages associated with veneers:

  • They look and feel completely natural, just like the rest of your natural teeth
  • They’re virtually stain-resistant and hold up well against staining agents like caffeine, red wine, tomato-based sauces, certain fruits, etc.
  • The colour of the veneer is completely customizable so you can achieve a brighter and whiter smile
  • Your gums accept a porcelain veneer/veneers very well (if you’re in good oral health)
  • They are very durable and long-lasting
  • Your self-confidence will drastically improve after seeing the results of your new smile
  • Your bite and chew can improve
  • They don’t require special treatment like extra brushing or flossing, therefore, your dental hygiene routine can resume normally (brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, etc.)
