Restore your smile with porcelain veneers
If you’re hiding your smile because of chips, stains, cracks or gaps, we have a solution that can make you want to show it off again. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that are placed over your teeth to cover up flaws. Strong and durable, they’re designed to mimic the natural translucency of enamel, so they look and feel completely natural. They can change the colour, size and shape of your teeth to give you a straight, bright, attractive smile.
Veneers can be placed with very little anesthesia, and resist staining in a way that natural enamel won’t; coffee, tea and wine won’t leave any tell-tale signs behind.
Dr. Cheng will choose veneers that complement your other teeth, facial features and personality. It’s a process that takes about 4-6 weeks. To prepare your teeth, he will remove about half a millimeter of your natural enamel to allow for the thickness of the veneer. He will then take a mould of your teeth, send it to a lab, and when the custom veneers have been made, he’ll permanently bond them to your natural teeth. Although most veneers are permanent (since enamel has been removed to accommodate them), no-prep options like Lumineers give you the flexibility of returning to your original look.
