Better Tooth Shape & Colour
with Dental Veneers
If you are not happy with the shape and colouring of your teeth, then visit Dr. Leila Ebrahimpoor for dental veneers. Dental veneers are very thin shells, typically made of porcelain or resin, that are bonded to the front of your teeth to enhance the beauty of your smile. Our dentist may recommend dental veneers to correct several types of smile imperfections. Porcelain veneers are an excellent choice for enhancing your smile because the colour and translucence of porcelain is a great match for the natural appearance of tooth enamel. Porcelain is stain resistant as well, so your smile will stay bright for years to come. Resin veneers can also be matched to your natural tooth colour. With dental veneers, you can achieve a beautiful, natural-looking smile that you will love to show off.
Our dentist may recommend dental veneers if you would like to improve the appearance of your smile. Custom-made veneers can be used for just one tooth or for your entire smile. We may suggest veneers to:
Close large spaces and gaps between teeth
Whiten teeth that are severely stained or discolored
Improve the appearance of irregularly shaped teeth
Correct slightly crooked teeth
Restore teeth that are broken, chipped, worn or fractured

Frequently Asked Questions
Porcelain veneers are made to last a long time. Provided they are taken care of properly, traditional veneers can last up to 15 years. No-prep veneers, which are placed without filing down the tooth enamel beforehand are a slightly more temporary solution and are only meant to last between 5 and 7 years when properly cared for.
Porcelain veneers are very stain-resistant. In fact, they are more stain resistant than natural teeth. However, it is important to keep in mind that they are not stainproof. Proper cleaning and oral care is required to make sure they keep their white shade for years to come.
Since porcelain is a somewhat delicate material and veneers are bonded to existing teeth, there are a few types of foods and drinks that should be avoided such as:
- Hard foods such as raw fruits & vegetables, nuts, and hard candy.
- Sticky foods such as caramel, chewing gum or soft candy.
- Tough & chewy meats.
Eating these kinds of foods puts your veneers at risk of chipping, cracking or becoming dislodged from your teeth.
When porcelain veneers are properly fitted and bonded, they will feel completely natural in your mouth. Patients who receive veneers at our clinic tell us that they don’t even notice them when they talk or eat and that they feel just like real teeth.
Dental veneers have advanced quite a bit since they were first used in dentistry. Today’s porcelain veneers are extremely thin. This means very little enamel (if any at all) needs to be shaved off to accommodate the veneer on a tooth. Consult with your dentist and see if this is possible in your case.
