Porcelain Veneers are dental restorations that are used to create beautiful, natural looking smiles.

At Absolute Dentistry, our Team of Dental Professionals will work with you to create the smile you have always dreamed of.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Okotoks Porcelain Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of teeth to improve their color and shape. Porcelain Veneers generally only cover the front and top of a tooth. Porcelain Veneers 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, Porcelain Veneers may protect the tooth from damage and restore its original appearance.

What are Porcelain Veneers used for?

  • Teeth that are slightly crooked or stained
  • Chipped teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Teeth that are different lengths

Porcelain Veneers can create beautiful smiles!

Okotoks Porcelain Veneers fit over the front of teeth and have the ability to transform the smile by completely concealing imperfections.

Porcelain Veneers can be the solution for numerous aesthetic flaws

Porcelain veneers camouflage numerous cosmetic problems, making them an option for a wide range of patients. Chips, cracks, discoloration, and misalignment are among the flaws veneers can cover.

Porcelain Veneers can be an alternative to orthodontic treatment

Many people are dissatisfied with their smile because of the alignment of their teeth, but avoid seeking orthodontic treatment because they don’t want to wear traditional braces. Porcelain Veneers may be used to reshape crooked teeth that would otherwise require orthodontic treatment in Okotoks.

Compatible with other dental treatments

Porcelain Veneers are often all that is needed to achieve your results, but they are also compatible with other dental treatments. For example, they can be placed in combination with teeth whitening, Invisalign OrthodonticsTMJ treatment, or Dental Crowns to completely repair and enhance a patient’s smile.

How do we restore teeth with Porcelain 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 Porcelain Veneers to the teeth. A harmless, high-intensity light hardens the adhesive. Once in place, Porcelain Veneers virtually become part of your teeth! You can use them like you would your teeth because the bond is extremely strong. The final result is beautiful and natural-looking teeth.

Follow-Up Care

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, however. But you should not:

  • Bite your nails
  • Chew on pens, ice, or other hard objects
  • Put extreme pressure on your teeth

Doing any of these things can cause the veneers to come off, break or chip. Your Okotoks dentist will ask you to come back in a few weeks and they will check the veneers for any problems.
