What are porcelain veneers?
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom made for shape and colour by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of your teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.
As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and will have to be replaced at some point. They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long-lasting smile.
Reasons for porcelain veneers:
- Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile
- Crooked teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Severely discoloured or stained teeth
- Teeth that are too small or large
- Unwanted or uneven spaces
- Worn or chipped teeth

What are porcelain crowns?
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structures that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain crowns are the most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they will eventually need to be replaced. The dentists at Port Perry Dental Associates are skilled in all types of crowns, including same day porcelain crowns, and will customize a treatment plan for you.
Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and colour of your teeth, giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
Reasons for porcelain crowns:
- Broken or fractured teeth
- Cosmetic enhancement
- Decayed teeth
- Fractured fillings
- Large fillings
- The tooth has a root canal

What is a porcelain bridge?
Replace missing teeth with porcelain fixed bridges!
A dental bridge is a fixed, non-removable appliance that is an excellent way to replace missing teeth. There are several types of dental bridges. Port Perry Dental Associates will discuss the best options for your case. The traditional bridge is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal.
Porcelain fixed dental bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring, abutment teeth. The crowns are attached to pontics, or artificial teeth, filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Dental implants are another effective way to replace one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last many years, however they may need replacement or need to be re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons for a fixed dental bridge:
- Fill space of missing teeth
- Maintain facial shape
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
- Restore chewing and speaking ability
- Restore your smile
- Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance
Our dedicated team is always happy to answer any questions you may have about our cosmetic dental care services. Find out if porcelain fixed bridges are right for your dental concerns. Contact us today.
What is a dental implant?
Implant dentistry is the most advanced therapy available to replace missing teeth. Dental implant restorations generally look, feel and act like natural teeth. At Port Perry Dental Associates, we believe in continued education to offer you the latest in dental treatments.
Dental Implants from Port Perry Dental Associates are the best alternative to your own teeth and can provide a lifetime of excellent chewing and aesthetics. Patients who have been treated with implants are able to chew all the foods they desire and no longer have to suffer the embarrassment of having their teeth come loose in public.
What are dental implants?
A dental implant is a replacement for the lost root of a tooth. Unlike dental implants, a denture only temporarily fits the gum. Once the root of the tooth is replaced with an implant, then a new crown can be made over the implant to provide a new life-like tooth.
Dental implants can be used to replace single teeth, multiple teeth and to secure loose dentures. Dental implants have been used successfully for more than 30 years. The development stage of dental implantology ended more than two decades ago, and research studies have clearly established the safety and effectiveness of dental implants.
Benefits of dental implants:
- Replace missing teeth
- Tighten loose dentures
- Reduce or eliminate sore spots caused by dentures
- Eliminate the need for denture adhesives
- Prevent bone loss that occurs after a tooth is lost
- Prevent the shaving down of healthy teeth for conventional crowns
- Replace dentures with permanent teeth
- Provide patients with the confidence of real teeth
- Allow patients to eat all the foods they enjoy
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
- People in good general health
- People approximately 15 years and older
- People who would like increased chewing efficiency
- People with loose dentures
- People with missing teeth

What is teeth whitening?
Safe, powerful, and long-lasting professional teeth whitening services that remove stains from your teeth and brighten your smile!
What Is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a dental procedure designed to remove stains from teeth enamel or to whiten discoloured teeth. There are different types of teeth whitening treatments available to patients. However, there are no guarantees whiteners will work swimmingly on all types of discoloured teeth.
Before and after any professional cosmetic teeth whitening treatment, it’s important to remember that you regularly practice good oral hygiene to help keep the pearly white shine in your smile. If you aren’t prepared to change habits that cause tooth discolouration and stains, any teeth whitening treatment you seek will fail to yield the lasting results you desire.
