There are many reasons why you might have spaces between your teeth. And for many years the traditional methods to eliminate unwanted spaces involved orthodontic care or time consuming cosmetic care. But thanks to dental veneers in Toronto, those gaps are quickly conquered in a couple of brief visits.
Dental veneers are a thin shell-like covering that are used to conceal many dental problems. Not only are dental veneers able to hide those unwanted spaces, they are also used to cover chipped or cracked teeth, correct the appearance of misaligned teeth or permanently whiten teeth that are stained due to diet, medications, or age.
What are the advantages to this treatment option over other methods? First a dental veneer is basically a covering for your existing tooth. The dental veneer is made of a layer of tooth colored porcelain or composite material that is attached to the front of your existing tooth. There is no need to replace teeth or endure months, possibly years, of treatment when dental veneers are placed.
Veneers require little to no removal of your basic tooth structure. And since removing any of your natural tooth structure is permanent, dental veneers can offer a more minimally invasive solution to give the appearance of closing those gaps.
Dental veneers are made of a porcelain material allowing your cosmetic dentist to develop the shape and match the shade of your existing teeth making your veneers virtually undetectable.
The porcelain material used in dental veneers provides durability and strength to your natural teeth. Dental veneers may be placed on one or several teeth, and are suitable for healthy individuals who do not suffer from gum disease.
Your cosmetic dentist has trained for years to offer you this way to eliminate unwanted gaps and spaces. And once you have been fitted with dental veneers, there is no special care needed beyond the excellent oral hygiene practices you already utilize of brushing twice per day with fluoride toothpaste or gel and flossing daily. Seeing Dr. Nicholas Kemp for professional cleanings and exams twice per year will also help keep your teeth, gums, and dental veneers healthy.
