What Are Veneers?
Veneers are made of a thin layer of composite or porcelain to cover the visible surface of the tooth. They are highly aesthetic and can change the shape, length and color of your teeth, giving you a new smile you’ve always dreamt of.
The handcrafted translucent porcelain, custom made to create a completely natural look, will make your teeth whiter, better aligned and improve their shape and position. If properly planned and executed, a veneers treatment can last a lifetime.
How Do Veneers Work?
Do you have gaps between your teeth? Tooth malformation, wear or discoloration? Are your teeth slightly mis-aligned? Veneers can be the solution for you. Properly planned and executed, they can also decrease wrinkles and give you a younger, white, more seducing smile.
It’s also worthy to mention that since Wisdom clinic is home to a multidisciplinary dentist, and has big experience in orthodontia, Invisalign, gum contouring, and other aspects of dentistry, your case is in proper hands for proper diagnosing, treatment planning and executing.

How Dental Veneers Are Made

That means you don’t need to worry about your smile losing its luster again. You can count on veneers to deliver a perfect smile for a lifetime.
Why Veneers Are Worth The Investment
Dental veneers constitute a non-reversible treatment. The dentist needs to shave a thin layer of your tooth in order to place a veneer. At Wisdom clinic, we often use minimal preparation techniques to preserve as much as possible of the tooth structure. The procedure is done under local anesthesia.
It’s also important to note that this treatment is considered an aesthetic treatment and is usually not covered by dental insurances.
At Wisdom clinic, we provide multidisciplinary dentistry, including orthodontia, Invisalign, gum contouring, root canal therapy, implants, etc. Our wide variety of services gives us the ability to evaluate your smile and condition from different points of views in order to guide you into taking the right decision.
