No one will be able to tell the difference ... Your dental veneers will look real and feel real. Most importantly, you will have your smile back! Nosehill Dental, your dental veneers dentist in Calgary NW.
It’s hard not to envy people with straight white teeth. After all, a perfect smile gives off the impression of equally ideal health.
Though to get straight teeth, you usually need braces or retainers, which are not only uncomfortable, but they take time too.
Plus, it could cause a hit to your ego – taking you back to those middle or high school days. Unless of course, you qualify for invisible braces, also known as Invisalign.
In this modern age of medicine and technology, you would think there was a better way, and depending on the severity of your misalignment, there might be.
Did you know that dental veneers can help straighten your teeth with minimal effort?
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored material that are meant to cover your natural teeth instead of going with dental implants or dentures. The goal with veneers is to help a patient improve the overall color and alignment of their teeth.
Depending on the client’s preference, veneers are designed out of either porcelain or resin. Porcelain resists stains better and looks more like a person’s natural teeth, which is why many clients prefer them.
They are also helpful with any crooked or misaligned teeth. Of course, if your teeth are severely misaligned more work will be needed, but minor annoyances can be dealt with in a flash.
A set of them can last anywhere between ten or fifteen years.
Veneers can fix a variety of minor dental problems. However, most reasons are cosmetic in nature. For example, if you have discolored teeth for whatever reason, veneers can cover that up.
If you have teeth that are worn down, chipped, broken, or misaligned then veneers are a quick way to make them look better overall.
People like porcelain dental veneers Calgary NW because within one or two visits they have a straight white smile instead of spending months with braces or retainers. People who only have one or two misaligned teeth are better suited for veneers than getting a mouthful of braces.
Plus, it is so much more comfortable than traditional braces, and feel more natural too.
Getting porcelain dental veneers is a permanent procedure that cannot be undone.
You start by talking to a dentist here at Nosehill Dental. Once you have an appointment, you and your dentist decide if dental veneers Calgary NW are the solution for you.
You are eligible for veneers if:
Once you’ve decided that you will go with a veneer, a dentist will prepare your tooth by removing a tiny bit of enamel from your tooth’s surface. This allows for the needed space to insert the veneer that will cover the original tooth. It will also help make the veneer look more natural when compared to the surrounding teeth.
The dentist will then make a mold of your tooth for the model, and it can take up to four weeks to get the finished product.
Once the veneer comes in, the dentist will make sure that it not only fits but looks natural when compared to surrounding teeth. Once both the dentist and patient are happy with the look and feel, the dentist will cement the veneer to the tooth.
However, before the veneer is cemented on, your tooth will be cleaned, polished, and roughed up a little to ensure a secure bonding process. When the tooth is placed correctly, the dentist will apply a special light beam to the veneer to activate the chemicals in the cement that will harden it, cementing the tooth in place.
Sadly, veneers are not the end all be all for all dental problems. They aren’t good if you have chronic cavities or gum disease. Likewise, if you have large parts of your teeth missing, then there is nothing to attach the veneers too.
If you grind your teeth, you may also want to consider a different option. You could break the veneers down as you grind unconsciously.
Here’s a quick list of the positives of veneers:

Having a dazzling, balanced smile is possible, thanks to porcelain veneers. Since dental veneers fit over the front of teeth, they help to transform the smile by concealing imperfections. Dental veneers make excellent solutions for:
Porcelain veneers work to camouflage numerous cosmetic problems, making them a good option for a wide range of patients. Chips, cracks, discolouration, and misalignment are among the flaws veneers can help to cover.
Many people are dissatisfied with their smile’s alignment, but they avoid seeking treatment because they don’t want traditional braces. Porcelain dental veneers can be specially fitted to reshape crooked teeth that may otherwise require orthodontics.
In the past, the only way to correct dental imperfections was to cover the tooth with a crown. Today, several alternatives exist: crowns, composite resin bonding, porcelain veneers, or even cosmetic contouring or orthodontics.
A dental veneer is a thin shell of porcelain or plastic that is bonded to a tooth in order to improve its colour and shape. A veneer generally covers only the front and top of a tooth. dental veneers Calgary NW can be used to close spaces between teeth, lengthen small or misshapen teeth, or whiten stained or dark teeth.
When teeth are chipped or beginning to wear, veneers can help to protect them from damage and restore their original appearance.
and Live Better
It can take two or more appointments to restore teeth with veneers. During the first appointment, we shape and roughen the teeth. We then take impressions of your teeth, which we use to make precise working models of your mouth. It’s on these models that we artistically craft veneers to fit the prepared teeth.
During the second appointment, we clean and polish the prepared teeth. Then we use an adhesive to bond the veneers to the teeth. A harmless, high-intensity light works to harden the adhesive. Once in place, you can use them like you would your own teeth because the bond is very strong.
It can take time for you to get used to the appearance and feel of your new teeth. You won’t have to change the way you floss or brush but be careful not to bite your nails or chew on other hard objects, or put any extreme pressure on your teeth.
Doing any of these things can cause the veneers to come off, break or chip. Your dentist will ask you to come back in a few weeks in order to keep watch of any problems that may arise with the veneers.
Nosehill Dental ensures that each individual has access to dental solutions tailored to their specific needs, without exceptions. All our patients are treated equally and are encouraged to ask questions, seek clarification, and take an active role in their own dental care plan, in order to achieve oral health for life.
