Veneers

Do you have small cracks, chips, or other flaws in your teeth that bother you? Our dentists at Millway Dental have many ways to repair your teeth so that you have a beautiful smile. If your flaws are minor, a non-invasive way to fix your teeth is by applying veneers.

What is a Veneer?

A veneer is an ultra-thin shell of material that a dental laboratory manufactures to covers flaws on teeth. They may consist of porcelain or composite resin, with porcelain looking more natural because it reflects light as tooth enamel does.

Assessing Your Teeth

During a consultation with our dentists in Mississauga, ON, they will examine your teeth to determine if you’re a good candidate for getting veneers near you.

The dentist may not recommend these shells for problems like:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Teeth grinding
  • Jaw clenching
  • A missing piece of tooth
  • Reduced amount of enamel

Most of these reasons will keep our dentists from recommending the process for your teeth. However, after receiving the appropriate treatments, they may be able to put them on your teeth. Teeth grinding and jaw clenching can result in chipping a veneer, so you will want to try to break those habits before getting a veneer.

Applying a Veneer

If our dentists near you okay veneers in Mississauga, ON, they will order them from the dental lab in the shade that matches your teeth. To begin their application, our staff will first clean your teeth. Since a veneer is almost translucent, they don’t want a stained or dull tooth to show through the veneer.

Once they are clean, the dentist will hold up the veneer to each tooth and do any additional trimming necessary to match each tooth’s shape. Trimming them will allow for a more precise fit, so they look seamless, and no one can tell you have veneers on your teeth.

To cement them onto teeth, our dentists will put a mild chemical that will etch the enamel so that the bonding material stays in place. Next, they will add a composite resin cement to each tooth and then apply each veneer.

If you want to change how your teeth look, call for an appointment with our dentists at Millway Dental about repairing your teeth. Getting veneers is an economical, non-invasive way to get a dazzling smile.
