Dental Veneers in Edmonton
Dental veneers are thin custom made shells of tooth coloured materials (commonly porcelain) designed to cover the front surface of teeth to correct minor damage or imperfections. These porcelain shells, once bonded to the front of the teeth, resist staining and mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Veneers can be used cosmetically to change the colour, size, shape, or length of a tooth.
Veneers are effectively used to fix minor cosmetic damage to teeth that can include the following:
- Discoloration – Teeth that have become discoloured as a result of staining from foods or beverages, certain medications can cause staining, and occasionally a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment will discolor.
- Uneven Wear – Over time, and with age, teeth can become worn and uneven wear can cause not only cosmetic issues but also affect a patient’s bite.
- Broken or Chipped Teeth – A minor chip or broken tooth can often be repaired and its natural appearance restored with a veneer.
With a natural tooth appearance, porcelain veneers are an excellent and cost effective solution for minor cosmetic corrections in the mouth. Very little of the patient’s natural tooth is removed in preparation for the veneer, gum tissue tolerates porcelain well, the color can be adjusted to match each patient’s natural tooth color, and the stain resistant properties of porcelain make it an excellent material for veneers. Dental veneers do not require any special care, carry on with your regular daily oral hygiene practices, including brushing and flossing as you normally would.
