Porcelain veneers are strong, custom-formed, natural-looking covers that are bonded to the surface of teeth. They look just like perfectly healthy and natural teeth. Veneers are often used to repair chipped, decayed or stained teeth and to reshape teeth and close gaps. Veneers are sometimes used instead of crowns for patients looking for a simple cosmetic restoration. To prepare the tooth, a minimal amount of enamel is ground down to accommodate the veneer. This procedure is minimally invasive, even less so than a typical filling.
What are the advantages of same-day veneers?
Before the technology came around, getting veneers always took 2 to 3 appointments and required awkward temporary veneers. Thanks to new techniques and equipment, getting veneers is easier than ever.

Your personalized treatment plan
Before we get started we’d like to hear from you how and why you would like to improve your tooth or teeth. We want to ensure veneers are the best option for you and will help you achieve your smile goals. We may recommend a treatment plan before veneers are done, to ensure your gums are as healthy as possible and your veneers have a clean and healthy foundation.
Preparing your teeth
To make space for your veneer, a thin layer of enamel is removed from the front of your tooth. We numb the area before we start working and the amount of enamel removed is very minimal. Next, we will take a highly accurate digital scan of your treated tooth or teeth. No more messy impressions or huge trays in your mouth!
Creating and placing Veneers
The 3D scan will be used to make a digital model of your veneers and they will be milled right on location in our special in-house machine. If you only have one or two veneers, this whole process can be completed in one appointment. Your new veneers will be permanently bonded to your teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Our Patients are Saying
I joined my husband and daughter in attending Dundas Dental Care some five years ago. I have been very satisfied with the care and professionalism of the entire staff. It’s very important to establish a level of trust and I have noted the thoroughness in explanation before work is performed. It has put me at ease and I have been far more regular in my cleanings and check-ups as a result of each preceding visit. I would recommend this practice to any age and gender.
Dr. Mohammad and the team are outstanding. They thoroughly explained my options and helped me make the right decision. I'm very happy with the level of care and service.
My husband and I had to switch dentists a couple of years ago, and on recommendation from a friend, were told of Dundas Dental Care and we couldn't be happier. The word "Care" in their name tells it all. We even recommended them to our adult son - that should give you a good indication of our satisfaction of both service and staff.
