Dental veneers can be an excellent option for fixing chipped, crooked, or broken front teeth.
Veneers are thin custom-made shells of porcelain materials that are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth. They usually require very minimal preparation to your teeth, but are considered an irreversible procedure due to the small amount of enamel that is removed from the tooth. After preparations to the teeth are finalized, a model of your mouth is made and sent to our dental lab. We collaborate with the best dental lab in Utah Valley—technicians who are experienced dental artists that make the highest quality cosmetic dental restorations.
Veneers are a cosmetic treatment used for a variety of reasons. They are generally limited to front teeth, because the biting forces experienced by back teeth are generally too great for them to withstand. Veneers are similar to crowns, but are a much more conservative option, requiring far less tooth preparation. Veneers are effective in treating discolored teeth that are resistant to teeth whitening. Front teeth that have had root canals, stains from tetracycline or other drugs, or large fillings that discolor the teeth are usually excellent candidates for veneers. Veneers are also effective in fixing chipped or worn front teeth, and are the best way to close gaps and misaligned teeth without using orthodontic procedures (braces).

Very friendly staff and great with care! Dr. Young is very kind, and efficient as well. The decor is nice and relaxing with a nice secluded play area as well. Great atmosphere.
I hadn’t been to the dentist in a really long time because I didn’t like my previous dentist. I loved canyon gate dental, they were so sweet and caring and Dr Young was very nice and you could tell he wanted to help. They worked with me and gave me a plan for what I needed. Highly recommended!
Canyon Gate Dental is a great place to go to get your teeth clean and worked on! I have been pleased with their work (I have been going there for seven years). They have good music and the dentist will occasionally sing along. 🙂 I haven’t met someone yet that isn’t friendly and they have reasonable prices.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Payne for over a decade (actually, it’s approaching two decades — yikes). He has terrific staff! Dr. Payne is one of the most personable people I know. He’s always concerned about my comfort and gives a very thorough exam. I highly recommend.
