, , , ,

October 6, 2017

Improving your smile and overall oral health is the name of the game here at Metro Dental in Etobicoke. Dental veneers are just one of the many treatments we use, however many patients are still unsure about how dental veneers work. In today’s post, we answer Etobicoke’s most frequently asked questions regarding dental veneers.

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers etobicoke, also referred to as porcelain veneers, are thin, custom designed tooth-colored shells made from porcelain or resin composite material that are used to cover the front surface of the teeth. Veneers are used to improve the appearance of your teeth and overall smile.

What type of smile problems do dental veneers treat?

At Metro Dental Etobicoke, we use dental veneers for a variety of cosmetic issues including:

  • Stained or yellowed teeth that are resistant to whitening treatments
  • Crooked, misshapen, or uneven teeth
  • Gapped teeth

How do dentists determine if I need dental veneers?

Before deciding that dental veneers are the best treatment, our dental professionals will perform an exam and hold a consultation with you to discuss your options. If we decide to go with dental veneers, we will perform an x-ray and take impressions of your teeth. Then, your dentist will create a detailed plan to accomplish your cosmetic goals.

What kind of preparation is needed for dental veneers?

Before proceeding with the dental veneer procedure, your dentist may need to remove some of your teeth enamel. This step is done to prepare your teeth to “accept” the veneers. Then, if needed, your teeth will be shaped so the veneers fit comfortably and perfectly on the teeth.  After this prep work is completed and the veneers are ready, we will place the veneers on the fronts of your teeth for a fitting check. If there are no problems, the veneers are attached using a light sensitive adhesive. Finally, a special light is used to cure and bond the veneers to your teeth.

If you’re ready to get the best smile of your life, contact our Etobicoke office to schedule a consultation and find out if you are a candidate for dental veneers.

West Metro Dental was as pleasant an experience as a Dental visit can be. The office was clean and in a very accessible location. My one complaint is that I requested my x-rays be sent to an oral surgeon and they haven't responded to my request yet. Other than that the office has friendly professionals and is a good atmosphere!

Been a patient for 5 years. Dr Walia and his staff are incredible. Everyone greets me by name. Never wait more than 20 minutes for an appointment. The true definition of superior customer service and this is from a guy who worked in the customer service industry for many years. I've moved 3 times since being a patient and continue to go to west metro despite there being dentists closer to where I live. I always feel welcome.
