At Lake of the Woods Dental Health Centre in Kenora, our dentist can provide porcelain veneers to help replace broken or chipped teeth, and improve your smile.
Most dentists will suggest teeth whitening as an initial solution to discoloured teeth.
However, teeth that are badly stained may not always respond to a teeth whitening treatment to a patient’s satisfaction.
Teeth whitening is also limited by an individual’s natural enamel thickness and colour.
Veneers, on the other hand, can be any shade that the patient desires, and can cover up any type of discolouration.
Dental veneers are also often used to fix teeth that are broken, chipped, or worn down from years of grinding.
These imperfections can be completely covered by the thin porcelain or resin shells. Not only does this improve the appearance of the teeth, but it helps to prevent cavities and tooth decay as well.
Even the appearance of teeth that are uneven and misaligned, due to developmental, health, or simply natural reasons, can be corrected with dental veneers.
The veneers can be attached in such a way that the smile appears completely straight and even.
On top of correcting the appearance of uneven teeth, dental veneers can be used to correct the appearance of gaps between teeth.
Veneers on adjacent teeth can be placed side-by-side in such a way that the gap is obscured.
Finally, even a smile that is straight and aligned correctly can suffer from some misshapen teeth.
Some teeth may be smaller, larger, shorter, or taller than others.
Teeth can also have craters or bulges that you may feel self-conscious about. Dental veneers can fix any of these problems, and more.
