Veneers with Toronto’s Dr. Hughes
For treating cosmetic flaws in the teeth of our patients, Dr. Hughes often suggests treatment with porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the surface of the patient’s affected teeth. This treatment is a great alternative to the porcelain crown, as it requires less alteration to the original teeth yet still achieves beautifully straight and white teeth. With porcelain veneers in place, patients in Toronto, ON area can enjoy a dazzling new smile!
What Are Dental Veneers Typically Used For?
Generally, porcelain veneers are used to cover up cosmetic flaws in teeth. The most common flaws treated with veneers include:
- Cracks and chips
- Stains and discoloration
- Wide gaps
Veneers are custom crafted for your smile, and will match your unaffected teeth perfectly. If you recognize one of the above as the reason for your dissatisfaction with the state of your smile, then veneers may be the best treatment for you.
The Treatment Process
Here at Christie Park Dental, we utilize a simple three step process when it comes to providing our patients with porcelain veneers:
- First, you will attend a consultation with Dr. Hughes here at our Toronto area office. During this consultation, Dr. Hughes examines your teeth, taking note of the flaws you are looking to repair. From this, a treatment plan will be created.
- Next, the affected teeth will need to be prepared for veneers. This may require that these teeth have some enamel removed, which will be done with a gentle scraping. This step is necessary as it allows veneers to properly fit your teeth.
- Finally, the custom-made veneers are applied to your teeth. Using a special cement, a veneer is attached to the tooth. Once in place, Dr. Hughes will then check to ensure that the veneer is properly placed and matches your remaining teeth. You will then be sent on your way, free to show off your beautiful new smile.
