Providing Better Smiles to Calgary & nearby areas of Alberta
Your teeth are extremely strong; however, that doesn’t mean they are completely indestructible. Over the course of your life, you may chip or crack your teeth on hard foods, or you may damage them from injuries. Luckily, there are methods to restore your teeth so that they look beautiful and chip-free.
Porcelain veneers are thin, durable, strips of porcelain that are bonded on the front surface of your tooth in order to cover up any deformities that may be the result of accidents or genetics. Porcelain veneers look and feel exactly like the rest of your teeth, and no one will be able to tell the difference, except you and your dentist. If taken care of correctly, they may last over ten years.
If you visit Dr. Jennifer Silver for porcelain veneers, your first visit will consist of photographing your teeth and making bite impressions. Your veneers will then be created to match the color and size of the rest of your teeth. In as little as two visits, your veneers can be bonded to your teeth, creating the smile you once had, or always wished you had.
Please look at our before-and-after galleries of patients who have decided to get porcelain veneers to see the work that we do here at Southcentre Dental Clinic.
