It is possible for stains, physical imperfections, and old fillings to alter the appearance of your smile. This can hamper your self-confidence in social settings.

One of the most effective methods to improve a smile is to have Dr. Neil Dhillon perform a cosmetic restoration with dental veneers and porcelain dental crowns.

The veneers will match the shape and surface of the other teeth in your smile, while leaving the rest of the enamel intact. If one of your teeth has insufficient enamel to secure a veneer, or has previously been repaired by a dental filling the doctor will likely recommend fitting it for a porcelain crown.

Once an impression has been taken of each tooth that will receive a veneer, Dr. Dhillon can start the crown restoration process. After a thorough examination to assess the health of the tooth he will use a drill to remove all the tooth enamel. This leaves behind a small pillar of dentin called an abutment that encases the healthy core of the tooth.

A detailed impression is made of the abutment and the corresponding teeth in your bite. The crown and veneer impressions will then be sent to a dental lab, to guide technicians while they create the necessary dental work.

When your dental crowns and dental veneers are ready Dr. Dhillon will cement them in place with a strong dental adhesive.
