Crowns & Veneers

Your Smile, Our Passion. Your Journey to a beautiful, confident smile Starts Here.

Crowns

Dental crowns, also known as caps, are tooth-shaped restorations that completely encase teeth to restore their form and function. They are commonly used to protect and strengthen teeth with large fillings, teeth that are cracked, or teeth that have undergone root canal therapy. Crowns also offer cosmetic dentistry solutions for correcting the appearance of misshaped, misaligned, or discoloured teeth, or those with any imperfections.

Veneers

Are you unhappy with the shape, colour, or size of your teeth? Veneers provide an excellent treatment option for a full smile makeover.

Dental veneers are crafted out of durable ceramic that is shaped to your preferences, then bonded over the front of specific teeth.

What to Expect at Your Consultation

During your initial consultation, we will complete a full assessment of your smile. We invite you to share your concerns, including what you like and don’t like about your teeth. From there, we’ll schedule an appointment to prep your teeth, creating a small space for the veneers or crows to fit over them.

Finally, we’ll take a digital scan of your teeth then transfer your virtual mould to our laboratory.

Your dental veneers and crowns are designed in a local lab. Once they’re ready, you’ll return a couple of weeks later to have them fitted in place. In some situations—such as if major smile changes are involved—we may suggest a trial smile first. This mock-up will allow you to see what your teeth will look like. If at any point you are unhappy or want to make adjustments, we can do so before the permanent veneers or crowns are designed.
