The Process of Getting Dental Veneers in Calgary
Porcelain veneers are typically applied over the course of three consultations:
- Diagnosis and planning
After deciding on a treatment plan, a dentist will lightly scratch the teeth’ surface to provide a sufficient bonding area for the veneers. Because this procedure involves the extraction of every last speck of enamel, it is usually done without anesthesia. We will happily examine your choices if anesthesia will make you feel more at ease.
In order to ensure the dental veneers match your existing teeth, we will take impressions of your teeth. Once we receive the veneers from the laboratory, our dentist will examine their fit and colour. We will then trim the veneers to fit you perfectly. Before the veneers can be placed on your teeth, your teeth will be cleaned, polished and etched. The veneers will be permanently placed on your teeth with a block of special dental cement. . We will also take care of any cosmetic dentistry or restorative dentistry issues that you may have so that can smile with confidence.
Dental Porcelain Veneers in Calgary | FAQs
Some of the common FAQs regarding dental veneers are:
Do Dental Veneers Stain?
Dental veneers that aren't composed of porcelain tend to discolour. They will grow dull with time, and may even reflect colours that are common in your diet. Limiting sticky sweet meals and dark-coloured beverages will help keep your veneers white and glossy for longer.
Is It Better to Have Lumineers or Porcelain Veneers?
Standard porcelain veneers can be created in the same manner as Lumineers, without the need for tooth preparation if your oral condition allows it. It is essential to seek advice from a prosthodontist to determine which option is suitable for you.
Will Having Dental Veneers Increase My Risk of Obtaining Cavities or Dental Problems?
Veneers have no link to cavities and do not raise your chance of getting them. Any exposed or vulnerable areas of the tooth or enamel are shielded by the new tooth when veneers are applied, thus having veneers installed can help prevent cavities.
