At the Parkland Mall Dental Centre, our Red Deer dentists use veneers to help patients improve the look of their smile. If you have chipped, stained, or uneven teeth that require restoration, schedule a visit with one of our dentists who offer veneers in Red Deer.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are porcelain facings that change the size, shape, alignment, or colour of an otherwise healthy tooth. In addition to masking imperfections, they protect against new ones by resisting stains caused by coffee, tea, and other foods. Veneers can cover one tooth or multiple teeth; once you have veneers in place, your teeth will look naturally white and straight.
How Do Veneers Work?
When you visit our Red Deer dental clinic, we start with a consultation where our dentist will gather information, such as X-rays and dental history, to make sure veneers are the right option for you. The dentist will then prepare your teeth for the veneers by buffing or filing the tooth, or teeth, to be covered so that the veneers will fit smoothly on top. Only about half a millimeter of the tooth is removed to maintain the original thickness. The dentist will then take a mould to fashion veneers that are unique to your teeth.
When the porcelain veneers are ready the dentist will place each of them on your teeth to make sure they fit well and look good. At this point, the colour of your veneers may be adjusted using different shades of cement. Alternatively, your dentist can whiten your natural teeth to match whiter cement.
Once the colour matches, and the veneers fit comfortably, the dentist permanently bonds the veneers to your teeth's surface, using a light beam that hardens the cement.
