Composite Veneers

Composite veneers are a quick and cost-effective option for improving the look of your teeth. These veneers are made of a tooth-coloured resin that is applied to the surface of your teeth and shaped to create the desired look. Composite veneers are a great choice for those looking for a more affordable option that can still provide stunning results.


Looking for an affordable and effective way to improve the appearance of your smile? Book a consultation with Paste Dental in Toronto to learn more about our composite veneer services.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, are a more durable and long-lasting option. Made of thin, custom-made porcelain shells, these veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth to correct various cosmetic issues, including gaps, chips, and discoloration. With proper care, porcelain veneers can last many years, providing a beautiful, natural-looking smile.


Ready to achieve a stunning, long-lasting smile? Contact Paste Dental in Toronto today to schedule a consultation and learn more about our porcelain veneer services.

When are veneers used?

Veneers are commonly used to improve the appearance of teeth that are:

  • Stained or discoloured
  • Chipped, cracked, or broken
  • Misaligned or uneven

  • Gapped or spaced out


The length of the veneer procedure can vary depending on the number of teeth being treated, the type of veneer chosen, and other factors. Generally, the process takes two to three appointments, lasting between one and two hours

The veneer process is typically painless, as local anesthesia is used to numb the area during the procedure. After the procedure, patients may experience some sensitivity for a few days, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

You should care for your veneers just like your natural teeth. This means brushing and flossing regularly, avoiding foods and drinks that can stain your teeth, and visiting your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings.

No, veneers cannot be whitened, but they are resistant to staining from food and drinks

With proper care and maintenance, veneers can last anywhere from 7-20 years. We will provide you with specific care instructions to help you maximize the lifespan of your veneers.

Dr. Derek Chung B.Sc (Dent), DMD

Derek was born in Ottawa, Ontario and moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba when he was a toddler, making him a certified prairie boy. He brings that small town sincerity, patience and kindness to all aspects of his practice. Dr. Chung is the visionary behind the elevated Paste experience.

Dr. Derek Chung obtained his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at the University of Manitoba. He also completed a degree in dental research, focused on dental whitening. Upon graduation, Dr. Chung then continued his training at the University of Western Ontario, where he completed his General Practice Residency. This has provided Dr. Chung with the foundation towards understanding the formal technical skills required to best serve his patients and their oral health needs.

After years of working in a group practice in downtown Toronto, Dr. Chung envisioned something different. He envisioned an elevated, sustainable dental experience where every aspect of a patient’s visit was thoughtfully curated. Dr. Chung challenges himself to create a dental office where every facet of the experience is intentional and thoughtful. He helps his patients reach their oral health goals by replacing stress, pressure and anxiety for more beauty and enjoyment. 

Dr. Chung’s greatest skill is his sincere interest and passion in creating the best experience for his patients. His friendly and understanding nature allows him to provide a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere so his patients get the best dental experience possible.


Paste was born out of Dr. Chung’s dream to change the public perception of going to the dentist. He sought to make the traditionally unpleasant dental experience more beautiful. Paste Dental is fueled by Dr. Chung’s years of gathered insights from his relief work in dental mission trips, working in hospitals, to his years in private practice. Dr. Chung sees what patients truly value. Compassion; Sincerity; Understanding; Comfort; Quality; Patience.
