What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Usually made from a very thin piece of porcelain, veneers are custom-shaped in a dental laboratory to match the shape and colour of your tooth. The porcelain tries to imitate the natural translucency of tooth enamel and should have a natural look and feel.
At Fort Garry Dental Centre, our dentist uses veneers to create a more uniform smile for our patients. Your dentist bonds the restoration to the front of your natural tooth to change the symmetry, shape or colour of your smile.
If you are looking to improve the shape of individual teeth or the evenness of your whole smile, you may want to consider dental veneers as a less-intrusive alternative to other services such as dental crowns.
How Dental Veneers Work
Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth which will be used to create your custom veneers.
Once your veneers have been made, they will be bonded to the front side of your natural teeth in order to give your teeth a renewed appearance.

Features of Veneers
If you are looking to alter the shape of individual teeth or the evenness of your whole smile, you may want to consider dental veneers as a less intrusive option compared to other cosmetic and surgical dental services.
Some of the dental concerns that veneers can help with include worn, crooked, or discoloured teeth. They may also be able to reduce unwanted spacing and change the size of your teeth.
If cared for properly, you can expect your new veneers to last for many years.
Full Mouth Restorations
At Fort Garry Dental Centre, we offer veneers as part of our full-mouth restorations. We consider this service to be a cohesive approach to dental treatment that considers both aesthetics and oral health resulting in a higher degree of efficiency and less overall recovery time.
