Dr. Zofia Wojt, DDS serves Newmarket and the surrounding areas. She offers cosmetic techniques to fix any chips, cracks, spaces or stains that your teeth may have. In addition to crowns, bridges, bonding and teeth whitening, we offer dental veneers and a way to improve your appearance.
Dental veneers are thin custom-made tooth coverings made of natural tooth-coloured materials. Applied to the visible front teeth, we can change your tooth colour, shape, size or even length. Dental veneers are more than just cosmetic, they also help protect weakened or damaged teeth and provide a barrier against tooth decay.
As with crowns, some tooth material is carefully removed before the veneer can be applied. After the tooth material is removed, an impression is made of the tooth, which will be used to construct the veneer for a perfect fit. The veneer is then attached permanently with a special cement that is activated by light for faster setting.
Porcelain or Composite?
There are two basic types of veneers, ones made from porcelain and others for composite resin materials. Both have different qualities that, depending on the particular teeth and their condition, are more appropriate. Dr. Zofia will advise you on the best choice of materials.
The porcelain variety has light-reflecting qualities that better imitate the look of natural teeth. Additionally they are more stain resistant than the resin type. The resin veneers have the advantage of being thinner than porcelain laminates. This means less tooth surface has to be removed prior to placement.
After an examination, Dr. Wojt will advise you on ideal dentistry solutions for repairing and improving broken, misshapen, or discoloured teeth that you may have.
