At Ainslie Street Dental in Cambridge, our dentists may recommend porcelain veneers as a treatment option to correct discoloured, chipped, misaligned or gapped teeth.
What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom-made to match the shape and colour of your natural teeth.
At Ainslie Street Dental, our dentists use veneers to create a more uniform smile for our patients. Your dentist bonds the restoration to the front of your tooth to help improve the symmetry, shape or colour of your smile.
At Ainslie Street Dental, we offer Lumineers to our patients. Lumineers are thin veneers that can often be placed with little to no removal of the natural tooth structure.
How Veneers Work
To begin, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth which will be used to create your custom veneers.
Once your veneers are ready, they will be bonded to the fronts of your natural teeth.
Each veneer is a very thin piece of porcelain, custom-shaped to match your tooth. The porcelain beautifully imitates the natural translucency of tooth enamel and has a very natural look and feel.
Benefits of Veneers
If you are looking to improve the shape of individual teeth or the evenness of your entire smile, you may want to consider dental veneers as a less-intrusive alternative to dental crowns.
Aesthetic issues that dental veneers can help to resolve include worn, crooked, or discoloured teeth. They can also reduce unwanted spacing and even change the size of your teeth.
With proper care, dental veneers can last for many years.
