Veneers

Beautiful smiles are universally admired, and Drs Annie Thompson and Greg Normoyle want to help patients to love their smiles. 

Some people are born with teeth that aren't ideally shaped. If this applies to you, you may be interested in all the ways veneers can change your smile. Veneers are part of our cosmetic dentistry toolbox, and we can do these either with tooth-coloured filling material or porcelain.

We can address patients who want a whiter smile, or straighter teeth, or even a full smile makeover, our dental staff at Centre Street Dental has the skillset to help. We create beautiful restorations and work with specialists if needed.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers allow our cosmetic dentists to reshape their patient's smiles. Getting restorations to resemble natural teeth can be challenging—natural teeth have transparency that can be difficult to mimic. Porcelain or dental bonding can provide a seamless look and blend in naturally with your smile. 

Porcelain veneers use thin layers of porcelain that bond to the front surface of the tooth. Porcelain beautifully resembles a natural tooth, down to the transparency and the way light filters through. 

How Porcelain Veneers Can Benefit Smiles

We apply wafer-thin pieces of porcelain to the surface of your tooth in order to reshape, recolour or resize your tooth. Veneers are custom-fabricated to blend in harmoniously with your existing teeth and gums. 

They can help cover small to complex smile flaws, including chipped teeth, gaps between teeth, and misaligned teeth. 

We may also recommend teeth that are resistant to professional teeth whitening or to reshape a tooth that is too short. We can use porcelain veneers to address nearly any smile flaw. 

Your cosmetic dentist will permanently bond the veneer to your tooth after we remove a minimal amount of enamel to make sure we have a close fit that is not too thick. Porcelain veneers resemble enamel so closely that most people will not be able to tell the difference. 

Patients with veneers can still maintain daily functions, sometimes with improvements.
