Dental veneers are thin tooth-colored shells that are bonded to the front of your tooth. These shells are used to change the color, shape, size, or length of your tooth. Veneers are a great solution to restore your teeth that have been damaged or stained by normal wear and tear or to restore teeth damaged by dental injuries.
Our dentist in Burlington, ON can use dental veneers to solve most of your cosmetic dental issues, including:
There are different types of dental veneers. The cost and durability of the veneers vary with each type.
Porcelain Veneers: These veneers are made of durable, high-quality ceramic. The color can be matched to the shade of your surrounding teeth. These types of veneers are usually the most expensive. However, porcelain veneers are usually the most durable and more closely resemble the appearance of your natural teeth when compared to other types of veneers.
Composite Veneers: These veneers are made from a tooth-colored filling that is bonded to your teeth. These types of veneers are usually less expensive than porcelain veneers, but they may not last as long as porcelain veneers.
Instant Veneers: These veneers are pre-made veneers that are applied to your teeth. Because these are pre-made, being able to match the shade of your natural teeth may be an issue.
Removable Veneers: These veneers are made from a dental resin that you may wear over your teeth. These veneers may be removed and cleaned after eating and drinking. While these veneers are usually inexpensive, they may not offer a permanent solution to your dental issues.
