What are Veneers?
Pinnacle Dental Arriva in downtown Calgary offers porcelain veneer services. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. Veneers can transform your smile into the smile you have been dreaming of. If your teeth currently have a size, shape or colour you are unhappy with porcelain veneers can be used to fix all of these dental issues.
The first step in seeing if veneers are for you would be to schedule an appointment with Pinnacle Dental Arriva in downtown Calgary for a consultation. Veneers aren’t right for everyone, each mouth is very different and that is why a consultation is so important. Let our experienced and professional dentists explain porcelain veneers and how they may work for you.
Porcelain veneers consist of a compilation of several thin ceramic layers which replace original tooth enamel. To apply a veneer, a very small amount of the original tooth enamel must be removed, usually less than a millimeter. This is important as it allows the veneer to fit properly and most accurately restore the natural look while still improving the appearance of the original tooth.
Porcelain veneers are a great option for restoring your smile if your teeth have developed poor colour, shape and contours. It is also a great choice for those with fractured teeth, gaps between teeth or when the tooth’s position has been compromised. For those that have teeth that do not respond well to whitening procedures, veneers are a great alternative.
What are the advantages of Veneers?
So what is the advantage of porcelain veneers. Since every individual veneer is sculpted for each patient it is almost impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. They also have advantages over natural teeth such as veneers are able to resist coffee and tea stains, and cigarette smoke because they are made of high-tech materials. With veneers—as opposed to crowns—your natural teeth remain largely intact with only a minimal amount being altered to fit the veneer.
