Calgary Dentist Explains Dental Veneers

Anytime your teeth have issues, whether it be functional or aesthetic, there are multiple ways of resolving those issues. Sometimes a treatment called dental veneers are appropriate. When we discuss that with patients, they want to know what are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are a thin layer of porcelain that gets bonded over the top of your tooth. Sometimes we are required to remove a little bit of tooth structure in order for you to be able to fit that thin layer of porcelain over the top of it, but basically, the function of that porcelain is to cover up discoloration, chips, and other imperfections. Veneers can also help with teeth alignment and overall aesthetics, providing a less invasive way of achieving the smile of your dreams.
Porcelain veneers are considered cosmetic dentistry and getting veneers is something that is a very personal and individualized way to help improve a smile. Veneers can help eliminate tooth discoloration that bleaching may not have previously helped. They can help fix minor issues such as small gaps or crooked teeth that are typically treated with braces. In some cases, veneers can help with enamel erosion and abrasion, as the veneer covers the surface of the tooth, providing a bit more stability where the damaged enamel may be failing. Veneers can also change the size, shape, and length of your natural teeth.
