Dentists at each of our downtown Calgary locations may recommend porcelain veneers as a treatment option to correct discoloured, chipped, misaligned or gapped teeth.
What is a Dental Veneer?
These pieces of tooth-shaped porcelain are extremely thin, and custom-made in a dental laboratory to match the colour and shape of your teeth.
At Dental One, our dentists at both of our downtown Calgary locations use veneers to create a more natural-looking smile for our patients. The restoration is bonded to the front of your existing tooth to help improve the shape, colour or symmetry of your smile.
Veneers can help improve the shape of individual teeth or the appearance of your entire smile. A less intrusive alternative to dental crowns, they can help correct a number of issues such as worn, stained or crooked teeth.
How Veneers Work
An impression will be taken of your teeth and used to make your custom veneers.
Once your veneers have been created, your dentist will bond them to the fronts of your natural teeth.
Created from a razor-thin piece of porcelain, veneers are custom-shaped to match your tooth. The porcelain mimics the natural translucency of tooth enamel, and has a very natural look and feel.
Benefits of Veneers
Are you looking to change the shape of individual teeth, or improve the uniformity of your entire smile? You may want to consider dental veneers.
This less intrusive alternative to dental crowns can help resolve conditions such as discoloured, crooked, or worn teeth. They can also reduce unwanted spacing and alter the size of your teeth.
If cared for properly, dental veneers may last for many years,
