If you hide your teeth in public and smile with your mouth closed because of misshapen or discoloured teeth, there is an effective solution. Dental veneers are thin shells made of durable porcelain or composite resin. Custom made to fit over your teeth, veneers will provide a natural and attractive look to your teeth.
Veneers give strength and resilience to your teeth and are difficult to stain, making them a great option for tooth colour correction and more. At Park Dental, we offer veneers in Sherwood Park so you no longer have to be worried about the appearance of your smile.
When you want colour or alignment correction for your teeth, veneers are a great option. In certain cases, veneers can be used as an alternative to braces, dental crowns and teeth whitening treatments.
You should consider consulting your dentist about veneers in Sherwood Park if you have teeth that are severely:
In order to place veneers on your teeth, a thin layer of enamel must be removed. To minimize damage from this part of the procedure, all materials Park Dental uses for dental veneers in Sherwood Park are customized for each patient. This allows us to cause as little change as possible to and be conservative with your tooth structure. Thus, our crowns and milling machines help us to save your tooth structure.
When it comes to applying porcelain veneers:
Your dentist first removes a thin layer of enamel from the teeth that need veneers so the veneers will fit properly.
Generally, porcelain veneers take 2 dental visits to apply while most composite resin veneers can be done in 1 visit, but porcelain veneers often last longer than composite resin ones.
Not everyone will be a good candidate to receive veneers in Sherwood Park. Because the removal of enamel is permanent, if you have functionally and esthetically adequate teeth you may not be a good candidate for veneers.
To determine if you meet the criteria for being a veneer candidate, you need to schedule a preliminary consultation with your dentist. Here, your oral health will be evaluated and all treatment options will be discussed. If veneers are chosen as your optimum treatment method, you will then discuss your preferences for the shape, length, width and colour of the veneers as well as your objectives for how the veneers will change the appearance of your teeth.
You should never be ashamed to smile. If you want to improve the esthetic appearance of your teeth, contact Park Dental for a consultation about getting dental veneers at our Sherwood Park clinic.
