Porcelain Veneers in Red Deer

Veneers are cosmetic restorations made of ultra-thin pieces of porcelain. They are created to bond to the front of a tooth to change the appearance. This may include changing the shape, color, size or alignment of a patient’s natural tooth. This is the ideal choice for patients wanting to make either a dramatic or subtle change to their smile in a fast, affordable manner. They mask imperfections and can improve a patient's overall smile. Veneers are also stain-resistant, unlike natural tooth enamel which is greatly affected by the regular consumption of coffees, teas and even red wines.

Veneers are an alternative to dental crowns. They are more conservative, can disguise imperfections and can even address small gaps between teeth. Patients can use just one veneer to cover a single tooth, or use a series of veneers for a complete smile makeover. The dentists at Appleway Dental Clinics have used them for both purposes. Most defects can be addressed with veneers.

Many patients ask their dentist about the process of receiving veneers. It starts with a consultation appointment. This is a time when the dentist examines the patient's smile, takes x-rays, and completes a full medical and dental history. Once it has been decided that veneers are the cosmetic restoration of choice, patients schedule an appointment for the preparation. At this time, a small portion of the enamel of the tooth is filed off to allow for a tight fit for the veneer. The thickness of the veneers is approximately a half a millimeter! Impressions are taken of the tooth, which are sent to an outside laboratory for the fabrication of the veneers. They arrive approximately one to two weeks later, and then the patient arrives back at the practice to have the veneers bonded to the teeth. The patient leaves the dental office after that appointment with their brand new, stunning smile!

The dentists of Appleway Dental Clinics are committed to helping patients improve their smile and feel better about its appearance.
