Porcelain veneers are shells designed to adhere to individual teeth. They can be used alone or as part of a more comprehensive procedure. Thanks to their versatility, they can be used for cosmetic purposes alone or they can be the last of a series of dental treatments designed to undo the damage caused by an accident. Once the veneers are in place, there are several benefits you can expect to enjoy. Here are a few examples.

Your Teeth are Whiter

One of the nicest things about porcelain veneers is that they can give you the appearance of whiter teeth. This is especially helpful if they are installed after the dentist takes care of any cracks or chips that are present on your slightly yellowed teeth. Thanks to the effect, you will be less self-conscious about your teeth and find it easier to smile when the mood strikes.

Remember that the porcelain can be tinted so the hue of the teeth is perfectly natural. Instead of ending up with an overly bright appearance that sometimes happens when people invest in cheap dentures, the veneers will blend in easily. If the plan is to add veneers to some teeth but not to others, the team will ensure the veneers are tinted to match the rest of your teeth.

There are No Gaps

Since the veneers adhere to the surface of each tooth, they are ideal for eliminating any small gaps found in between two teeth. The veneers have the shape of natural teeth so there are no worries about giving your smile a slightly odd appearance. In fact, your smile will look better than at any time in the past.

Tooth Proportion is Improved

Do you have some teeth that are slightly smaller due to an injury or because that’s the way they came in? You can use veneers to correct the problem. Along with filling in gaps, the veneers can alter the shape and proportion of each tooth. The result is a set of teeth that are more uniform in size and shape. That will certainly give you a reason to smile.

Getting On With Your Day

There are dental procedures that require you rest for at least the remainder of the day. That’s not the case with veneers. Once they are in place and the dentist tells you to go home, it’s possible to do anything you would like. Sedation is not typically used when you are getting veneers alone, so there is no danger of your senses being slightly dulled. Feel free to return to work, go shopping, or engage in any activity that is normally part of your day.

Whether you are getting veneers as a strictly cosmetic solution or you need them as part of a set of procedures performed by an emergency dentist, rest assured that they will do wonders for your teeth’s appearance. Best of all, no one needs to know they are there. Unless you tell people, the natural look of the veneers will have them assuming you have always had perfect teeth.

Everyone here is very friendly and provides excellent care. I received a full exam on my first visit, and everyone took time to answer my questions and ensured I felt comfortable the entire time - exactly what you want when visiting the dentist. I highly recommend Markham Smile Centre for anyone looking for great dental care.


There is an ample parking space before you get into the office. The receptionists welcome us friendly with proper COVID-19 procedures in place. The staff worked with patient very patiently and professionally. My teeth cleaning was done by Ying, she explained every detail to me and I did not feel any pain or uncomfortable at all. Thanks to the best team !


It's been a while since I've been to a dentist but I'm trying to get back on track with health in general. Overall it was great going to Markham Smile Centre! The receptionist (I believe she was Kim) was friendly. The hygienist, Ying, was attentive and gentle during the cleaning; x-ray tech (forgot her name, sorry!) was great too. Dr. Sara Riad explained things with good detail. Looking forward to going back!


I was someone who was nervous and anxious about visiting the dentist, but the team at Markham Smile Centre has made me feel SO comfortable. Kim is so patient and helpful and Dr. Hwang and Rory are both so professional and wonderful. They thoroughly explain the procedure to make you comfortable beforehand and are very gentle. I now look forward to visiting the dentist!


I found this place on a whim when I was looking for a new dentist in Markham. My hygienist ying was super nice and her cleaning was very gentle yet thorough. I saw Dr.Jason and he was very nice and informative in regards to what needs to be done and provided me with all the information I needed to make a choice. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a new dentist, they’re accepting new patients!!


I have been to many dentists in my life, Dr. Jason is easily the best dentist I have ever been too. He does everything he can to make you comfortable no matter the procedure and is a true professional, as does all the staff at Markham Smile Centre. Truly an amazing dentistry


The clinic was clean and the staff was very polite. I particularly liked the fact that everything was explained to me before going in for the procedure so I knew what to expect at each step. The dental hygienist who did the cleaning for me was also very gentle and took my concerns into consideration. I will definitely recommend them.


Upon arriving to the Markham Smile Centre, my son and I were greeted with a warm welcome by the receptionists. The hygienists and Dentist were very gentle and transparent with what they were doing. The hygienist that worked on my 9 year old son was patient and very friendly with him, which helped ease his nerves. Our overall experience was A+.


Since I was little, I have always hated going to the dentist... Its always uncomfortable and unpleasant. These days, visiting the dentist isn’t so bad! Dr Jason, Rory, and the lovely staff at reception make the experience 100x better. I have had absolutely no issues with the gum graft and cleanings that I’ve gotten done here. Everyone is incredibly friendly and helpful, even when I’m calling in or emailing a hundred questions :). I would highly recommend Markham Smile Centre.


Love this place! All the staffs are friendly and Professional and I mean all, cause I've been to most of their office, Markham , Stouffville, North York, and Maple. Dr. Ko is very professional and patient. Whenever I have questions and concerns he would always reply me . I would say this this dental office take care of you all the way. I would highly recommend everyone to come here for any dental works. =)
