Porcelain Veneers in Burlington


Porcelain Veneers in Burlington

Porcelain veneers are becoming an extremely popular way of altering one’s smile. Veneers are very thin shells that adhere directly to the surfaces of your teeth. Your Burlington dentist can use them to help with the effects of discolouration, unevenness, chips, and damage. They offer a cosmetic option tailored to your teeth. Similar to a glove fitting over your hand, veneers fits snugly over your tooth to alter the look of your smile. Because veneers are made of porcelain, they are highly durable, stain-resistant and long-lasting. Porcelain material can be sculpted to create the desired shape and customized to the colour of your teeth. This makes them a natural-looking solution.

 

Veneers can be used to correct:

  •    Tooth spaces
  •    Chipped teeth
  •    Stains and discolouration
  •    Crooked teeth
  •    Gum smiles

Dental Crowns in Burlington
 

Dental crowns are used to restore a number of tooth problems, such as chips, wear, decay, and damage. They are also known as dental caps because they cap off the tooth by covering its entire surface. For this reason, they are extremely durable and long lasting. Your dentist in west Burlington can make dental crowns from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, gold alloy or a combination of these. Porcelain crowns have proven to be popular due to its natural-looking appearance.

 

The difference between Porcelain Veneers and Dental Crowns:
 

Crowns are required when a tooth has lost a large amount of its structure or when it has undergone a root canal therapy. A crown restores the tooth and keeps it healthy and strong.

 

In comparison, porcelain veneers are placed on your tooth’s surface to enhance its appearance. To ensure a proper fit, some of your tooth’s enamel may have to be removed. Once this is done and while your veneers are being made, we will use temporary placeholders and replace them in your next appointment.
