September 8, 2017

In today’s world there are a variety of options for people who are unhappy with their teeth to finally achieve the smile they once had or always wanted. One popular option is porcelain veneers Etobicoke, and today we’re taking a look at this cosmetic procedure.

How Porcelain Veneers are Designed

Porcelain veneers are thin shells compiled of multiple layers of thin ceramic, and are designed to replace original tooth enamel using an adhesive to bond the veneers to the teeth. Each veneer is custom made for your tooth using impressions. A small part of the original tooth enamel is removed to create room for the veneer to fit in the mouth and restore natural tooth function.

Who Can Benefit from Porcelain Veneers

If you have healthy gums and teeth, porcelain veneers may be an option for you to correct certain cosmetic concerns and restore natural tooth function. There are a number of conditions porcelain veneers are used to treat, including:

How We Prepare Your Teeth for Porcelain Veneers

Before we decide that porcelain veneers in are the best treatment for you, we will schedule a consultation appointment in which we take x-rays of your teeth and go over the best options to correct your concern. If porcelain veneers are your best option, we will take impressions of your teeth and develop a plan to get you on the road to a beautiful smile.

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.
