Veneers in Coquitlam
Dental veneers are thin, tooth-coloured shells that we make out of porcelain to place over the front of your tooth. Veneers are commonly used to disguise damaged, discoloured, chipped, misshaped, or improperly sized adult teeth as a cost-effective alternative to full dental crowns. Porcelain veneers offer a durable, long-lasting, and aesthetically appealing solution if you want to give your natural front teeth a boost of confidence for years to come.
How Veneers Work
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are purposefully fitted to cover the front surface of your natural tooth. If you are a good candidate, your dentist will discuss your cosmetic goals with you and take impressions of your teeth so they can custom-create a veneer. At your next appointment, your dentist will permanently mould the veneer to your tooth, matching the colour, shape, size, and fit of your natural smile.
Veneers vs Dental Crowns
Veneers and dental crowns are similar in that they both offer a cosmetic solution for imperfect teeth. The difference is dental crowns cover the whole tooth on all sides, while veneers specifically cover the front of the tooth that you see when you show off your naturally stunning smile.
