Porcelain Veneers

At Richmond Dental, our cosmetic dentists in Calgary can give you the confident smile you’ve always desired with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin plates of porcelain shaped to fit on your natural teeth. They are used for a wide variety of options including eliminating gaps in your teeth or to give a more natural look to teeth that appear crowded together. You can also explore the idea of porcelain veneers as an alternative to teeth whitening since the veneers would cover the stained outer tooth structure. Porcelain will not stain, nor will it break down, like normal teeth. With proper maintenance your new smile will look just as great as it did the day they were attached. Veneers use the existing enamel on the tooth to bond properly and requires little to no tooth preparation. A wax model can be made ahead of time so you as the patient can visualize what your cosmetic smile will look like anywhere you are in Calgary.

Every veneer case that our dentists in our Calgary dental clinic completes is custom shaded by a lab technician to make sure your veneers look as close to your natural teeth as possible. To create your unique and vibrant smile, each veneer is custom-made to your mouth and bonded to your teeth for a strong finish. Following the procedure, a regular schedule of dental visits at our clinic in Calgary, paired with diligent home maintenance of brushing and flossing, will result in your veneers being a part of your smile for the foreseeable future. While porcelain veneers are not suitable for people who grind their teeth, they do not require any special care. Despite this, please be mindful when chewing on hard things like pens or your nails to make sure they don’t chip or crack.
