Your Choice for SW Calgary Porcelain Veneers!
In the past, the only way to correct dental imperfections was to cover the tooth with a crown. Today, in most cases, there are several alternatives: cosmetic contouring or orthodontics, crown, composite resin bonding, or porcelain veneer. Our Ultima Dental Team is happy to discuss with you what your best option is!
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made pieces of porcelain or composite resin that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. Bonding these thin shells to the front part of the tooth can improve the colour and shape of the tooth and help the tooth against additional damage while restoring or enhancing its original appearance. Veneers are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility.
Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. Our general dentists place veneers routinely, designing each one individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile. Porcelain veneers allow you to change the color, length, contour, and shape of your teeth to enhance and create your perfect smile.
Do Porcelain Veneers look like normal teeth?
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and resistant to staining. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy natural teeth is unsurpassed by other restorative options. No one will know your teeth aren’t actually your own, unless you tell them!
How durable are Porcelain Veneers?
With proper care, porcelain veneers can enhance your smile for well over a decade. Ultima Dental Wellness ensures that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available. Refraining from using your veneers as tools to open and cut things will prolong their life, and if accidental breakage or damage does occur, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.
