Teeth whitening is not the only solution to discoloured or stained teeth. Orthodontics treatment is not the only alternative to address teeth that are unusually spaced. Porcelain veneers are a flexible and long-lasting alternative that can solve a wide variety of cosmetic issues affecting otherwise healthy teeth. If you would like to receive dental veneers in Walden, we are happy to provide veneers near you.
Veneers Near You
Veneers are extremely thin shells made of porcelain that are bonded powerfully to your prepared teeth. Porcelain is an ideal material for crafting custom-made veneers in Calgary, AB because it shares many qualities with natural teeth, including the way it reflects light and its translucency. Porcelain also has the important quality of being very stain-resistant. Porcelain veneers are custom-designed to fit invisibly and seamlessly over your existing teeth while presenting a different profile to observers. You can use veneers to change the length, size, shape, spacing, and colour of one or more teeth.
Being fit with veneers in Calgary, AB takes place over the course of two appointments. During the first appointment, your dentist will measure your teeth precisely to prepare a custom-fit veneer — one that matches your tooth while also adjusting its shape, colour, spacing, or size as you envisioned. You and your dentist will work together to choose the colour and shape of your veneer to ensure it fits naturally with your natural teeth, gums, lips, and face. Finally, this first appointment will end with your dentist removing a thin layer of enamel from the teeth that will receive the veneers so that the veneer will fit sleekly and securely.
At your second appointment for veneers near you, your dentist will confirm that the veneers fit properly, then will bond those veneers securely to your teeth. With proper care and attention to avoiding habits that can harm veneers — like chewing ice cubes and grinding your teeth — they can last for 10 to 15 years.
