An investment in a lifetime of confidence.
Porcelain veneers are strong, custom-formed, natural-looking covers that are bonded to the surface of teeth. They look just like perfectly healthy and natural teeth. Veneers are often used to repair chipped, decayed or stained teeth and to reshape teeth and close gaps.
For those who want to completely customize the look of their teeth in order to achieve their dream smile, dental veneers are the best treatment option.
This is by far the best dental office I have ever been to. I have never been a fan of the dentist, but they don't judge. They told me what was necessary, what I needed most, and let me choose what I could afford, first. Josie lights up the office with her kind, empathetic personality and Dr. Wilkinson is gentle and he speaks in terms everyone can understand. Everyone here is kind and professional and I wouldn't trade them for the world. I hope they know how amazing they are.
I have always had excellent care at Shallowford Smiles. Everyone is very friendly and makes me feel comfortable. They all know what they are doing and are very good at letting me know what they are doing. I appreciate the text reminders of my appointments also. I can highly recommend Shallowford Smiles and Dr. Wilkerson to everyone.
I have severe dental anxiety. This visit almost made me forget I have dental anxiety at all. I have never been more impressed with a dentist or dental office assistant and staff in my entire life. I’m almost looking forward to the upcoming visit and I promise you this, I have NEVER before said that.
Bring out the best of your smile with veneers
Improving the look of your smile can be achieved through the use of various different procedures, but veneers provide you with the opportunity to completely change and customize the look of your smile with just one procedure.
- Closing gaps in the smile line
- Correcting slight misalignment or crookedness in the teeth
- Evening out the shape of teeth
- Fixing unsightly chips
- Combating sensitivity
- Minimize the appearance of a “gummy” smile
- Achieving the patient’s desired shade of whiteness
- Eliminating visible permanent stains in the enamel of the teeth
Veneers are placed for a number of reasons, including:
Complete Care: For a complete smile overhaul, dental veneers may be the complete package.
Longer Lasting: Veneers can be matched to your natural teeth or can strategically improve the whiteness and brightness of your smile. Dental veneers will give you a whiter and brighter smile that lasts much longer than with just teeth whitening.
Less Invasive: With modern dental veneers, very little to no material must be removed from the tooth before the veneers can be permanently bonded to the tooth. This procedure is less invasive than a crown and preserves more of the natural tooth.
A Happier, More Confident You
Choosing veneers goes far beyond simply closing a gap in your smile line or achieving that “Hollywood”-white smile: it’s a choice that allows you to enjoy confidence and happiness that radiates throughout all aspects of your life.
Consider the things that you normally shy away from or dread due to your insecurities surrounding your smile.
- Taking photos with friends or family
- Enjoying being the center of attention at your wedding, birthday party, or other celebration
- Attending a loved ones’ wedding, birthday party, or other celebration
- Making a great first impression at a job interview
- Enjoying a first date

Getting veneers is simple and easy
Before we get started we’d like to hear from you how and why you would like to improve your tooth or teeth. We want to ensure veneers are the best option for you and will help you achieve your smile goals. We may recommend a treatment plan before veneers are done, to ensure your gums are as healthy as possible and your veneers have a clean and healthy foundation.
Preparing your teeth
To make space for your veneer, a thin layer of enamel is removed from the front of your tooth. We numb the area before we start working and the amount of enamel removed is very minimal. Next, we will take an impression of your prepared tooth and it’s neighbours to make sure your veneers fit perfectly and blend in with your smile.
Creation and placement
A temporary veneer will be placed for your comfort while your permanent veneers are being created. Once they’re ready to go, your temporary veneers will be removed and the perfect permanent veneers will be permanently bonded in place. After some finishing touches and a quick polish, your smile will be ready to dazzle.
Caring for your veneers
When you depart with your new veneers, you’ll be given detailed instructions on how to best care for them. Your new veneers will look and feel like natural teeth, and you must take care of them like you would your natural teeth. Brushing and flossing twice a day and routine cleanings and checkups are highly recommended! With proper care, your veneers will last ten years or more.
