Your NW Choice for Porcelain Veneers

If you’re looking to correct a smile that has chips or stains, or even just enhance or change the look of already healthy teeth, Sarcee Dental Clinic can help! A long lasting and natural looking option, Dental Veneers might be the solution to your cosmetic and structural dental wants.

What is a Porcelain Veneer?

A Porcelain Veneer is an ultra-thin layer of porcelain that acts like enamel on the front side of a patient’s teeth. It is customized to fit the exact shape of a patient’s mouth, and then bonded to the front surface of the natural teeth to improve the appearance of your teeth and brighten your smile. It creates a natural looking appearance, and in doing so, also provides strength to the tooth similar to natural tooth enamel.

Why consider Veneers?

In addition to restoring the bright smile to your teeth, veneers can also help with small gaps in teeth or small fractures and chips. Veneers can help with:

  • Patients who want to change the overall dynamic of their smile (shape, shade and colour of their teeth)
  • Teeth Discolouration
  • Cracked Teeth
  • Chipped Teeth
  • Gaps in Teeth
  • Teeth Shape
  • Wear and Tear
  • Minor misalignment

What is Involved in the Procedure?

Dental Veneers typically require 2 or more appointments. The initial appointment will involve your dentist going over with you what you’d like to accomplish with the veneers, and a treatment plan will be created. A second appointment begins with a cleaning, and the dentist determining the correct shade for the veneer to best match your natural tooth colour. A small amount of enamel is removed in order to adhere the veneer in place. An impression of the tooth is made in order to create the veneer, and a temporary veneer is put in place until the final veneer is created. This also gives you an opportunity to ‘test-drive’ the temporary veneer until the real one is ready. When your final veneer is ready, the temporary veneer is removed, and the tooth is cleaned again. The veneer is etched and then rinsed with water and allowed to dry before the cement and veneer is placed on the tooth. The veneer is then light cured for 60 seconds before the dentist removes any excess material and polishes the veneer.

Dental Veneers can replace orthodontic treatment in many cases because they are used to reshape crooked teeth that may otherwise require orthodontic treatment. We know your smile is important to you and changing the look and aesthetic of your teeth with Sarcee Dental Clinic’s porcelain veneers is one of the many dental options we offer!
