To restore and improve the look of your smile, dental bonding may be for you. This procedure takes a tooth-coloured resin material (a durable plastic material) and applies it to your tooth, hardening it with a special light. This material is “bonded” to your tooth and can help the following issues:
Dental veneers or porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates help improve the look of your teeth. Using a wafer-thin, custom-designed, tooth-coloured material, the veneer is bonded to the front surface of your teeth. Veneers can change the colour, shape, size, and even length of your teeth.
You can choose between veneers made of porcelain or resin composite material. Porcelain veneers resist stains better and can mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. On the other hand, resin veneers are thinner, requiring less of the natural tooth’s surface to be removed before placement. Discuss your best veneer options with our dentist at Portway Dental Centre in Stoney Creek.
