Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta

Cheap Veneers!! The price difference in veneers is dramatic in some cases. You can travel to Mexico and get a “great deal”. I’ve seen adverts for $400 each. Sounds great, but as the old saying goes “if it’s too good to be true it probably is”. What if one of your veneers broke or fell off just before a big presentation or special event?

Would the cost savings be worth it if your veneers started to stain or crack after just a few months? I had a new patient who came to see me as her New Mexican veneers fell off on the flight home. Yes on the flight home. You’re probably considering porcelain veneers because you want a fantastic smile, so it just doesn’t make sense to sacrifice quality. With some purchases, cost may be the most important factor. But veneers aren’t something like a TV or pair of jeans. If you buy a certain model Samsung TV it makes sense to shop around and find all the stores that sell that particular model and find the cheapest price. Each TV model is identical, made in the same factory etc., the only difference is the price. But veneers are different. Veneers are not picked out of a box, instead they are customized to you and your tooth. Each veneer in the same mouth is different and customized to the tooth it covers.

When are Veneers Used?

Why should you consider dental veneers in Calgary? Veneers can be the treatment of choice for correcting a variety of cosmetic issues:

  • Discoloration: Sometimes, teeth whitening isn’t enough to get rid of serious tooth staining. Whether your teeth have been discolored by lifestyle choices or the use of certain medical treatments, veneers offer one simple solution to brighten your smile.
  • Teeth Shape: The appearance of your smile is affected by the length and overall shape of the tooth. Veneers are often used to correct these common cosmetic concerns by lengthening the teeth or repairing chips and cracks.
  • Smile Alignment: Minor alignment issues can be corrected using veneers instead of braces. For example, this treatment can fill in gaps and correct irregular teeth. Usually, orthodontic treatments are suggested for younger patients, but adults have the option to choose between orthodontics and veneers.

If you are looking for a dental office that provides porcelain veneers in Calgary, then our experienced dental team will discuss your goals and design a treatment plan to create the smile of your dreams. This process is pretty straightforward, involving the placement of thin shells over the visible surface of your teeth to improve the overall appearance of your smile.

How many appointments will be needed for dental veneers in Calgary? This treatment will require several visits to the dental office. The first visit will be a consultation and design of a proposed treatment. If you are satisfied with the cost and recommendations, then the dentist will prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of enamel.

These custom veneers will be created; then you will need to come back to our dental office so the dental restorations can be bonded to your teeth. It is incredible to see the results that are possible, giving you the ability to transform your smile. You have the opportunity to choose veneers in Calgary and enjoy a simple and affordable solution for a smile makeover.

Tips for Choosing Quality Veneers in Calgary
Quality of porcelain veneers varies depending on:

  • Quality of the Material: The technology used to manufacture porcelain veneers has advanced by leaps and bounds in recent years. The most affordable solution are veneers made of composite materials, but these materials don’t last as long as porcelain veneers.
  • Skill of the Ceramist: Each porcelain veneer is hand-made, and only a master ceramist will be able to craft your veneers so that they perfectly match the shape, size, and color of your existing teeth.

The Benefits of Investing in Quality Veneers

Even though it might be tempting to save a little bit of money on the initial veneer treatment, you need to consider the long-term costs if something goes wrong with your smile. All veneers need to be replaced eventually. But investing in quality materials will give you the benefits of veneers that are built to last for years. Not only can you avoid the hassle of veneer replacement in a few short years, but it might also be more affordable when you look at the long-term cost of replacing cheap veneers over and over again. The best thing you can do is choose a reputable provider of porcelain veneers in Calgary, such as Southcentre Dental.

Don’t overlook the benefits that can’t be measured in the price that you pay. For example, good veneers can improve the quality of your life and have an impact on your career success, relationships, self-esteem, and more. When you choose to beautify your smile, you will find that you are more confident in sharing that smile with everyone you meet.

Veneers truly are an investment: spend a little money now to transform your smile, and you will enjoy the cosmetic benefits for many years to come.
Cost is a potential barrier to receiving the level of veneer you wish to create your smile, which is why we have financing options available. We will not begin your veneers procedure until you completely understand the costs involved. We offer financing options to help with costs. I also advise patients to wait and save if they need.
