Does your smile make you consious?
Does your “not so beautiful smile” keep you away from interacting with the world the way you want?
Do you hesitate in flashing your smile in front of the camera?
Is your bad smile hampering your confidence when you go for an interview?

Our areas of expertise include:

Are your front teeth chipped and worn out?
Veneers are a popular treatment option for these reasons.
Types of Veneers:
There are two types of veneers:
a. Ceramic Veneers (also called laminates) and
b. Resin-Based Composite Veneers.
Ceramic veneers are extremely thin shells made of a strong and durable dental ceramic, giving the prosthesis a life like effect.
They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.
As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement. They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.
Reasons for porcelain veneers:
Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
Severely discolored or stained teeth.
Teeth that are too small or large.
Unwanted or uneven spaces.
Worn or chipped teeth.
What does getting porcelain veneers involve?
Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure. The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist.
On the second visit the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.
You will receive care instructions for veneers. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
Resin-Based Composite Veneers:
Resin-based composite veneers generally are placed in one appointment. After the tooth is prepared or reshaped, the participating dentist carefully bonds and sculpts the composite material in a colour that matches your other teeth. A special light is used to harden the composite. The veneer is smoothed and polished to look like a natural tooth.
