Modern dentistry can restore your smile to its ultimate condition. Veneers, crowns, porcelain restorations, and other techniques can fill in the missing spaces and improve the look. Our cosmetic dental practice has the training, equipment and skills to do full smile makeovers. So, lets get down to the nitty-gritty in answering your questions. First, what are the differences between veneers, crowns, and porcelain?
What is a Veneer?
A veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface, either to improve the aesthetics and strength of the tooth, or to replace the decayed or weakened structure of the tooth.
Multiple veneers can close spaces, lengthen teeth that have been shortened by wear, make your teeth appear straight, and provide a uniform colour, shape and symmetry.
What is a Crown?
A dental crown is often used when a tooth is in particularly poor condition, whether it is cracked, broken, decayed or diseased. It fits over your weakened tooth accurately.
What's a dental bridge?
A dental bridge may be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges are a long-term solution that can help prevent movement of remaining teeth, decay, and periodontal bone loss.
What is a Cosmetic Dentist?
Cosmetic dentistry is term given to fixing or restoring teeth to make them look and feel better.
Cosmetic Dentistry does not only relate to implants. Our teeth can be restored using a porcelain or ceramic material to rebuild your tooth. This is known as a crown or veneer. Crowns can help save and strengthen structurally damaged teeth to help you regain your bite and function. Not only that but they look amazing as well.
With technological advances in the dental industry most crowns can now be completed in one visit using cerec cad/cam technology.
Crowns or Veneers are often used when patients wish to improve the appearance of their front teeth. Veneers can close gaps, lengthen, widen or even straighten the appearance of your teeth resulting in a beautiful, confident smile.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Implants are aesthetically pleasing as they look like real teeth. They also act and feel like real teeth and they don’t harm adjacent teeth.
Enjoy More Variety

Less Permanent Damage
Dental implants decrease strain on other teeth, which can result in permanent damage to them. Furthermore, Dental implant restorations never decay!
Maintain Bone Structure
Dental implants help maintain your bone structure and support your facial tissue, preventing gum recession, bone loss and speech difficulties.
