Porcelain Veneers in Crescent Heights, AB

Porcelain Veneers Near You

Veneers are used to correct issues concerning the appearance of your teeth. They are designed to match the colour of your natural teeth and are comprised of ultra-thin porcelain. Porcelain veneers are bonded to the front surface of your teeth, concealing imperfections and allowing your teeth to function normally.

What Issues Can Porcelain Veneers Correct?

  • Hide tooth discolouration

  • Smooth uneven tooth enamel
  • Lengthen your teeth
  • Shorten teeth

What is the Procedure for Porcelain Veneers?

Acquiring porcelain veneers will require two appointments to complete the procedure. Little to no anesthesia is necessary if you are receiving porcelain veneers. Your dentist will first begin by preparing your teeth for the veneers. This involves lightly buffing and shaping the surface to create room for the veneers. Your dentist will take a mould or impression of your teeth to design the custom veneers. Next, you and your dentist will choose a shade (colour) for your veneers. You may receive temporary veneers to protect your teeth—these will be replaced at your subsequent appointment.

When you return for your second visit, your dentist will clean your teeth using special liquids to ensure a durable bond. Your dentist will then place bonding cement between your tooth and the veneer. Lastly, to harden and set the bond, your dentist will use a special light beam.

Porcelain veneers are a permanent solution. This means, once your dentist bonds them to your teeth, they can’t remove the veneers, they can only replace them. You must treat your veneers as you would treat your natural teeth. Brush your teeth twice daily, floss regularly, and visit your dentist for regular dental checkups. On average, porcelain veneers can last between 10 and 15 years when they are treated with proper care.

Porcelain veneers are best suited for patients who:

  • Have healthy teeth and gums
  • Have adequate tooth enamel to accommodate the veneers
