Porcelain Veneers

Get a beautiful new smile with crafted porcelain veneers

You might have a tooth discoloration you find very embarrassing. Or maybe a chipped tooth. You want it fixed, and you want a better smile.

Veneers can help!

What Exactly are Dental Veneers?

In many situations veneers are applied to correct the problems of crooked teeth, gaps, discoloration, and chipped teeth. A thorough assessment of your situation would determine if they are the best solution for you.

Veneers are small tooth-coloured shells attached to the front surface of teeth to correct misalignment or improve colouring.

Veneers are usually made of porcelain, and they bond permanently to teeth. They cover one or more teeth, making them look naturally white and straight.

Why are Porcelain Veneers Popular?

Everyone wants healthy teeth and perfect smiles, but it's more than a fashion statement.

Porcelain veneers are helpful for various dental concerns, correcting problems like misaligned teeth, gaps, stains, and broken teeth. They can also strengthen teeth weakened from fillings or cavities.

Do I Need Veneers?

What we eat and drink can take a toll on our teeth. Without good dental care, food may leave stains, wear down our teeth and damage their surface. Genetics or accidents can lead to broken or misaligned teeth.

The benefits of this cosmetic dental procedure are numerous:

  • Veneers Last a Long Time

    Veneers are valuable investments. If you care for them properly and follow our Red Deer dentist's instructions, they will serve you well.

  • Veneers Prevent Staining

    Drinking coffee, sipping a glass of red wine, or just eating food can leave stains on your teeth. Sure, regular brushing can help remove stains, but some linger.

    Veneers can solve this. Their porcelain surfaces are so smooth and non-porous they repel food stains.

Do Veneers Ruin Your Teeth?

No, veneers do not ruin your teeth.

However, veneers become a permanent part of your teeth after being applied. Once you have them, you'll need to keep maintaining them to extend their lifetime.

Are Veneers Permanent?

Do you like opening bottles with your teeth?

We sincerely hope not, but the point is this: if you care for your veneers, they can last for a long time.

Their longevity also depends on the quality of your treatment plan.

Our dentists identify and correct any bite issues you might have. They can also help you address concerns like clenching and grinding your teeth by recommending nightguards as needed.

We've helped hundreds of patients in Red Deer by fitting them with veneers. And we've sent them off with the right appliances and guidelines to be sure their investment lasts for many years to come.

What's the Process for Getting Veneers? Does it Hurt?

You'll need two dental appointments:

  • We start with a consultation, gathering information such as X-rays and dental history, to make sure veneers are the right option for you.
  • We prepare your teeth by removing a thin layer of enamel. Only a minimal amount of the tooth is removed to maintain the original thickness.
  • We take measurements and photos and take a mold impression of your teeth to send to the lab. Then we apply temporary covers to your teeth to keep you comfortable until you return about two weeks later.
  • By your second appointment, we'll have received your custom veneers back from the lab. At this point, the colour of your veneers is adjusted using different shades of cement. Alternatively, we can whiten your natural teeth to match whiter cement. Then we fit each veneer to your teeth.
  • Once the colour matches, and the veneers fit comfortably, we bond the veneers permanently to your teeth's surface, using a light beam that hardens the cement.

Occasionally one more appointment is needed to refine your bite and make sure your veneers last a long, long time.

We do use freezing, so you'll have no discomfort. After the procedure, your teeth might temporarily be a little sensitive to cold.
