Trust the natural appearance of your veneers to our talented team

Veneers are the “not-so-secret secret” behind the world’s most recognized and beautiful smiles. This popular dental treatment is also within reach in Ottawa and greater eastern Ontario at the office of Gloucester Family Dentistry.

We make imperfections disappear!

Veneers are made from dental materials like composite resin or ceramics like porcelain. These materials are precisely colour-matched and shaped to replicate the structure and appearance of natural, healthy tooth enamel. Once they are secured to the front surfaces of teeth, veneers cover up cosmetic imperfections. Conditions that may be effectively disguised with veneers include:

3D Veneer
  • Chipped teeth
  • Minor spacing issues, such as gaps between teeth
  • Very stained or yellow teeth
  • Intrinsic discolouration, which does not respond well to professional whitening agents
  • Teeth with shape-related irregularities
  • Worn or irregularly-sized teeth

While veneers do an excellent job of mimicking the appearance of natural enamel, the satisfaction patients get from this process depends on the skill of the dentist that plans, prepares, and administers this treatment. Our dentists, Drs Fuad Tanha and Sami Kandalaft take great care to match veneers to the unique characteristics of your smile and face. They use their skill and precise technologies to carefully take impressions of your teeth, which our lab then uses to make the veneers. In turn, the results from treatment fit your face well, look natural, and bring out the best in your smile. Due to our exacting planning and use of quality materials, patients also have peace of mind that their veneers will hold up well for years.

We keep you smiling confidently!

Our team can also advise on ways to protect veneers from future damage. Like natural teeth, they can become chipped or cracked. It is important to refrain from behaviours that may lead to chips, fractures, and other forms of wear and tear. These behaviours include chewing hard objects, such as ice. If you habitually grind your teeth, we may recommend custom oral appliances or “nightguards.” Since most people with this condition, known as “bruxism,” tend to grind their teeth unknowingly while they sleep, these guards are worn in the mouth during sleep. They are a hassle-free way to protect teeth and dental work like veneers from damage that leads to the need for costly and aggressive restorative treatments (or re-treatment in the case of patients with veneers).

For the long, healthy “life” of your smile, call (613) 319-0845. We can schedule a consultation at our Gloucester, Ottawa, ON office. During your appointment, our doctors will discuss options that are ideally suited to your one-of-a-kind smile and self.

Many Happy Faces

Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
