Porcelain Veneers in Hamilton, Ontario

Thanks to advancements in dental technology, we can use cosmetic dental procedures to instantly improve the health and appearance of your smile. One of the easiest and most effective ways to boost your smile is with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells that adhere to your tooth's front surface. The shells are quite versatile and can be used to correct a wide variety of cosmetic dental imperfections such as:
 
•    Closing gaps between teeth
•    Covering surface stains
•    Elongating short teeth 
•    Making your teeth look more uniform and symmetrical

Besides enhancing the appearance of your smile, porcelain veneers help to strengthen your teeth. Similar to dental crowns, porcelain veneers are created in the dental lab using information that is based on your teeth's unique specifications. Once bonded, the porcelain material is extremely tough and durable and helps to keep your teeth strong.
 
To place the veneer, the dentist has to remove a small amount of the tooth's surface. The dentist takes an impression of the tooth and sends it to the dental laboratory to create your cosmetic porcelain shells. To protect your exposed teeth while you are waiting for your veneers, the dentist will place a protective sealant over your teeth. Once your veneers are ready to be placed, the dentist will remove the sealant and bond the veneers to your teeth with bonding cement. 
 
To keep your veneers in optimal shape, it's important to practice good oral hygiene. This includes brushing twice a day and flossing once to remove food debris and prevent plaque build up. To find out if porcelain veneers are right for your smile, contact Dr. Shainoor Kanji, family and cosmetic dentist, to set up an appointment in Hamilton.
