If you’re unsatisfied with the appearance of your smile, we can help.
Veneer Options to Fit Your Needs
While veneers conceal a wide variety of dental problems, they are not necessarily a one size fits all solution. To create results that meet your needs, veneers should be customized with the appropriate materials and shading. In this way, your restored smile will appear as natural and remain durable as possible. Thorncliffe Family Dental is committed to meeting these goals for our cosmetic dentistry patients and offers the following types of veneers:
- Composite Resin (No Prep) – Patients may be more familiar with this dental material as a filling, but composite resin can also be used to enhance the appearance of teeth. During this treatment, a liquid composite is carefully brushed onto teeth. The material then bonds and dries to resemble your natural enamel. For patients with minor aesthetic flaws, resin veneers are cost-conscious and conservative, requiring little to no preparation of natural teeth before treatment is applied.
- e.max® Veneers – This brand of veneer offers a blend of aesthetic materials for enhanced durability and life-like qualities. Veneers are created as thin wafers or shells that are customized and bonded to the tops of teeth. They are ideal for adjusting the shape and shade of teeth and can also be used to make teeth look straighter. This treatment can accomplish all of these goals, as teeth are first buffed to make room for the restoration. The buffing process is essential for changing the outward shape and alignment of teeth and maintaining a natural appearance, without adding bulk.
Ask our dentists about veneer treatment for chips, cracks, and spacing issues. If teeth are too short, veneers add length; if teeth are too severely stained to be brightened with whitening, or if teeth have tetracycline stains, veneers are opaque enough to cover and conceal these flaws.
Cosmetic Dental Veneers in Calgary
If your smile is generally healthy and free of severe decay, you are a good candidate for veneers. During your consultation, our dentists evaluate your smile to ensure that veneers will meet your needs. Patients then receive a wax-up model, which demonstrates what their improved final smiles will look like. At this stage, we can change or update any parts of your treatment to ensure you are confident with moving forward.
Before your veneers are applied at your second appointment, we make sure you are completely satisfied with the appearance of your restorations, discussing details such as the size, shape, and color. Our local lab which fabricates your veneers can even send along a technician for custom shade matching.
