When it comes to getting a pearly white smile, veneers are a versatile cosmetic solution that can give you a reason to smile for decades. Veneers can be described as “shells” that fit over the front of your existing teeth (usually the front teeth, since they are the most visible). They are made of very thinly shaped but durable porcelain and are the secret behind hundreds of Hollywood smiles. Our dentists have helped many patients achieve a whiter, straighter, and more even smile using dental veneers.
How Veneers Are Fitted
Veneers are a permanent restorative and cosmetic solution that require preparation by removing some of the enamel of the tooth. Our dentists will prepare your teeth and take detailed images to ensure that the veneers can be manufactured in a dental lab for a tight fit against your teeth. Once they are ready a couple of weeks later, you’ll come back into our Calgary dental office for a second visit to have the veneers secured permanently to the teeth. After that, all that’s necessary to care for your veneers and keep them sparkling is a great at-home dental hygiene routine and regular dental examinations with our dental team.
The Benefits of Veneers
Veneers can be created in many ways, allowing them to be used to correct a wide range of cosmetic flaws in the teeth. Some patients choose veneers when their teeth appear very small, unevenly or widely spaced, or when they have discolouration or staining that can’t be remedied with teeth whitening solutions. Whatever is holding you back from smiling wide at every opportunity, our dentists in Calgary have the solution
