You can choose either a veneer or teeth whitening:

  • Crowns or Veneers - A veneer is a porcelain facing on the front of your teeth. It is just like a false finger nail. Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy. It can improve the colour, shape and position of teeth. A crown is a porcelain coating that covers the front and back of the tooth.
  • Teeth Whitening  - Teeth Whitening treatment will give your smile a new lease on life.  It is the quickest, most effective way to enhance the appearance of your smile.  We offer the Zoom Teeth Whitening treatment - one of the most cost effective, safe and convenient option on the market currently.

Porcelain veneers or crowns

Typically the determination of whether a patient should have veneers or crowns is based on what the patient and dentist are looking to achieve.

While both procedures can be highly aesthetic, the two treatments have different uses.

Veneers are used when a patient would like to improve the shape and color of their teeth. Crowding and excess space issues can also be alleviated. Veneers are thin (approximately fingernail thickness), beautifully shaped porcelain that is customized for the individual patient.

Crowns are used in cases in which there is less tooth structure due to tooth decay or in cases in which a tooth has undergone root canal therapy. Crowns can achieve all of the aesthetic advantages of veneers and should only be used when necessary.
