Dental Veneers: Whitening Teeth for a Winning Smile

In existence for over 30 years, dental veneers are still not commonly understood or utilized by many dental patients in Burnaby.


While most people have heard of whitening teeth with bleach treatments, they are not aware that they are being exposed to the bleaching alternative almost daily. In fact, dental veneers are worn by actors, models and professionals and play a huge roll in the cosmetic dentistry industry.

“Dental veneers do more than just make your smile look beautiful, they can also help fix for biting problems, help fill in gaps between teeth, or straighten overlapping teeth.”

Dental veneers are similar to acrylic fingernails, where a replacement is shaped and placed on the natural nail. Veneers are made of a thin layer of custom-made porcelain or composite material, which are then placed over the natural tooth.


However, unlike an acrylic nail, veneers are incredibly tough. Patients with dental veneers are still able to bite into carrots, eat fudge, or enjoy anything else they would normally. Dental veneers are completely sealed against the natural tooth, lasting for several years without regular maintenance.


While professional teeth whitening may have a few limitations, veneers are used to solve a variety of oral health issues. Bleaching is typically used only to lighten teeth, without the ability to change the position, size or shape of teeth.


Dental veneers do more than just make your smile look beautiful, they can also help fix for biting problems, help fill in gaps between teeth, or straighten overlapping teeth.


Dental veneers also allow you to keep much of your natural tooth, which is always ideal. Veneers are custom-made to cover just the front and biting surface of your teeth, which leaves the back area untouched.


Don’t forget, if you are interested in any cosmetic dentistry solutions from Metroplex Dental Centre, it is incredibly important to maintain proper oral health.

Smile Correction 101: Fixing a “Gummy Smile”

Cosmetic Dentistry has become increasingly more accepted for patients thanks to popular reality shows that focus on dramatic smile makeovers. Dental patients in Burnaby are beginning to understand how easy it is to create their ideal smile with the available cosmetic dentistry solutions.

“Cosmetic Dentistry in Burnaby, BC has come a long way in providing smile correction. Dental patients can benefit greatly by taking advantage of gummy smile treatment and other cosmetic dentistry solutions.”

We are often asked questions about what a cosmetic dentist can accomplish at Metroplex Dental Centre, and many patients are surprised at all the smile correction solutions we provide.


One popular cosmetic procedure is “gummy smile” treatment or correction. A gummy smile occurs when a large section of gums appear when the patient smiles or laughs. In some cases, there will be more gum area visible than teeth.


Patients complain about their “gummy smile” because they seem to resemble an adolescent, with prominent gums and small teeth. Generally, this smile comes from genetics, which causes the typical gum development to stop early, leaving teeth shorter than they should be.


A gummy smile correction can be treated in a few different ways. First, patients with less severe or moderate gum problems can be treated by lifting the gums and utilizing dental veneers. This “gum-lift”, similar to a face-lift, sculpts the gums to a natural height, allowing veneers to be affixed to the teeth to allow for a beautiful, new smile.


Second, for severe gum disproportion, treatment can include the physical breaking and repositioning of the upper jaw. This can require a healing time of up to two months and the jaw will be wired shut.
