Are there several things you’d like to change about your smile? Perhaps your teeth aren’t as white and bright as you’d like them to be. Maybe some of your teeth are chipped or have slight cracks. Others are somewhat crooked or have gaps in between them. Rather than go through all of the different cosmetic procedures necessary to fix these smile imperfections, why not just have one? With porcelain veneers, the dentists at Torbram Dental have given people in Brampton, Ontario new smiles and they can do the same for you!
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers, also called dental veneers, are made of micro-thin layers of dental porcelain that are bonded to the facial surface of your front teeth to conceal and correct the flaws in your smile. As such, porcelain veneers are considered a cosmetic procedure. However, because they might also protect teeth from further damage—such as a tooth fracture deepening—they are also a restorative procedure.
What is the Porcelain Veneer Procedure?
Your first toward a new smile with porcelain veneers is a consultation with one of our dentists. We’ll discuss your smiles goals and assess the current condition of your oral health, making sure your teeth are strong enough for veneers. Then, we’ll work with you to choose the shape and shade of porcelain veneers that will best compliment you.
Next, the teeth in your smile zone are prepared by removing a very small amount of enamel, so your veneers will lay flush with your other teeth. Then, we’ll take an impression of your teeth, which will be sent to a cosmetic dental lab where your custom-made veneers are fabricated. While your permanent veneers are made, you’ll wear temporaries. In a few weeks, you’ll return to Torbram Dental to have your own veneers bonded in to place. With proper care—brushing, flossing and regular checkups—you’re porcelain veneers can last for years.

What is it about modern technology that inspires confidence? When a dentist or doctor’s office uses outdated equipment—or even if the office furniture looks like it’s leftover from the 80’s—somehow the effect is less than reassuring. At Torbram Dental in Brampton, Ontario, we take pride in using the latest dental technology in order to provide our patients with the best of care and the greatest of comfort.
Our commitment to staying up-to-date begins when you first arrive. All of our records are maintained with paperless charting. With all of your dental records on computer, we can easily access photographs and digital x-rays during your appointment. And of course, no paper means less waste and better organization.
If you are coming to Torbram Dental for a checkup and it’s time for x-rays, we only rely on digital x-rays, which require less radiation than typical x-rays while providing more detailed information about your oral health. Furthermore, digital x-rays are “developed” instantly on our chairside computer screen, so you and the dentist can simultaneously view them.
To find even the smallest spot of tooth decay, we use DIAGNOdent, a laser technology that reveals cavities in the earliest stages of development. Found early, we can treat cavities more successfully, and we are able to preserve more of your natural tooth structure. And with intraoral cameras, we can view and magnify other developments in your mouth that would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye.
CEREC and Laser Dentistry
If you require a dental crown to restore a tooth’s appearance and function, then with CEREC we can prep your tooth, prepare your crown and have it cemented into place in one visit. CEREC is in-office dental CAD/CAM equipment that allows us to take an optical impression of your tooth and design and mill the restoration in one visit.
For patients who need treatment for gum disease or gum contouring, our dentists use soft-tissue lasers. Lasers produce energy in the form of light and in dentistry they offer pain-free precision, greater comforter and faster healing times.
