We are looking forward to seeing each and every one of you, very soon! We will be opening our clinic for all your dental care needs on June 1st. Until then, we are still available for any emergency and urgent dental care you may require.
Our office will have a number of changes designed around giving you a safe, efficient and comfortable experience.

What we will need from you:
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment and call the front desk at 403-295-9335. Please wait outside of the clinic in your vehicle and when you call us we will complete our Covid 19 screening questionnaire with you. We will then let you know when we are ready to see you. We are limiting access to our clinic to facilitate proper social distancing. Please also note that there will be no access to our washroom at this time to facilitate better infection control
Please come to your appointment wearing a mask.
Be prepared for us to take your temperature at the time of your visit using a no-contact thermometer

If you have changes to your insurance, please call the office ahead of time to update this information.
Accompaniment of patients will be limited to one essential caregiver and one parent of minors; all others will be asked to wait in their vehicle outside the clinic.
What the clinic is doing to ensure your safety:
Enhanced cleaning methods with approved sanitization products
Hand Sanitization station-please clean your hands before your treatment
Staggered appointment times to allow for cleaning in between patients
Tap payments (no cash payments will be accepted at this time)
Plexiglas barrier at the front desk to minimize exposure between staff and patient.
All team members will be pre-screened before and when they arrive to work to ensure they are healthy to work. Any team member that does not pass the screening will be asked to go home. We are doing this to ensure we are keeping you and all our team members safe. All team members will be wearing the appropriate PPE at all times and employing high standards of hand hygiene and infection control
All service personnel and couriers will be screened and asked to sanitize when they arrive and all deliveries will be sprayed and stored to sanitize
The above changes may take some time to get used to and may seem overwhelming, but we are making them because the health of our patients and staff remains our top priority.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to seeing you and appreciate your support to help maintain a safe environment in our clinic.
Many things enhance your beauty. Your face, body shape, skin complexion, and teeth appearance are some factors that play a crucial role. A smile makes a person looks more beautiful. The appearance of the teeth and its whiteness makes a smile even better. The good news is that you can improve the appearance of your teeth by use of veneers.
Dental veneers sometimes referred to as porcelain teeth veneers. The veneers are like thin shells. They are attached to your teeth and help maintain your dental health. The veneers can also help you with broken teeth, discolored teeth, or chipped teeth.
Veneers can also be used to fix teeth with wide gaps between them and misaligned teeth. The number of veneers given by a veneer specialist varies from one person to another. Veneers are mostly applied to the front teeth.
Types of Teeth Veneers
Well, most veneers are made of porcelain hence being called porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers require some preparation before they are applied to the teeth. You will need to visit the dentist for about three times. It is worth noting that implementing the porcelain veneers is a bit painful.
However, some veneers don’t require much preparation before they are applied. These veneers are mostly referred to as “non-prep veneers.” The main options are Lumineers® and Vivaneeres®, and these take less time to apply. In most cases, these veneers do not require local anesthetics.
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
Your insurance does not cover veneers. Veneers are considered cosmetic, and hence, it is not included. After all, insurance does not cover your cosmetic products. The cost of veneers varies from one clinic to another, but the difference is not that big. It will also depend on the type of surfaces you are choosing plus the cost of living in your area.
The cost is between $930 and $ 2,500 for every tooth for traditional veneers and lasts up to 15 years. For the non-prep veneers, it costs between $800 and $2,000. The no-prep veneers can last for up to 7 years. Most people prefer going for porcelain veneers, as they are cost-effective.
Benefits of Dental Veneers
The main advantage of veneers is enhancing your beauty by improving the appearance of your teeth. Your teeth will be aligned correctly, and your smile will be brighter. Another benefit is that they get to last for a long time. The traditional veneers can last for up to 15 years, while the non-prep ones can last for up to 7 years. We believe this is a good investment. You will be more confident in your smile, and this will improve your general confidence.
The appearance provided by veneers is natural
Porcelain veneers are resistant to stains
Gums are not affected by veneers
The color of veneers can make dark teeth appear whiter once applied
You cannot reverse the process.
May make your teeth more sensitive
Veneers cannot be repaired if damaged
The color of veneers cannot be altered once applied
Some of these disadvantages can be avoided if the dentist is careful. For example, a cautious dentist will not use veneers that are not of the same color as your teeth. Also, if you take care of the veneers, they won’t face any damage.
Taking Care of Your Veneers
Veneers do not require much attention. Immediately after they are cemented, you can start eating your food just as you have always done. However, it will not hurt being a little more cautious if you want them to last even longer. Take the following precautions
Avoid chewing hard objects such as pens and fingernails
Don’t use your teeth to open soda or packages
Try not to use your front teeth while you are eating
Wear mouth guards while you are engaging in sports
