A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain or composite resin made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail. Porcelain is stronger and usually last longer than the composite resin veneers. Veneers are typically done to enhance the appearance of your smile by covering a discoloured or chipped tooth or to close in gaps between adjacent teeth. This procedure will require 2 visits, as the laboratory needs time to construct the veneer.
Bonding is a treatment that can be used to repair teeth that are decayed, chipped, fractured or discoloured or to reduce gaps between teeth. Bonding, also known as bonded restoration, is a painless way to make minor repairs to teeth. In most cases several teeth can be bonded in a single dental visit. Bonding uses tooth-coloured material, called composite resin. Composite resin is put on the tooth and then shaped and hardened with light.
We offer the convenience of a take-home whitening kit, which can change the appearance of teeth that may have acquired stains from the use of tobacco products and the consumption of certain foods or drinks. This procedure is only effective on natural tooth enamel; fillings, crowns and bridges will not whiten.
Sheer White!® is easy to apply and adapts tightly to the shape of your teeth with no leakage. Sheer Film® technology ensures a comfortable fit for up to 2 hours of whitening. With its 20% carbamide peroxide formulation, you will have a pleasant whitening experience with less sensitivity and no effect on your daily activities. You can speak normally and even have a drink while wearing Sheer White. You will enjoy the comfort of knowing a dental practitioner is caring for your teeth and still have the convenience to whiten while living life normally.
