Dental Veneers in NE Calgary, AB

Are you interested in improving the way your smile looks? Dental veneers in NE Calgary, AB at Huntington Family Dental could be a great option for you. They are thin coverings that are used to put over the front part of your teeth. They are great because they look just like natural teeth so there won’t be a bunch of embarrassing questions asked about them by your friends or colleagues. They are used for several different dental problems.

  • Correcting stains that are resistant to bleaching and whitening
  • Covering chipped and worn teeth
  • Properly shaping crooked or misshapen teeth
  • Fixing large gaps or uneven spacings

Made from either porcelain or composite resin material, veneers can help your smile improve. Dentists at Huntington Family Dental will help you pick out the appropriate material for your veneers. Both types have unique sets of benefits.

Composite Resin

Created from a tooth-colored material, composite resin veneers are bonded to your teeth. Benefits include things such as:

  • Minimal enamel removal
  • Usually only takes one visit to place
  • Less expensive
  • Easy to fix when damaged

After your tooth or teeth are prepared, the dentist will sculpt and bond the resin onto the tooth using a color shade that best matches the rest of your teeth. A laser light will harden the composite before they are smoothed and polished.

Porcelain Veneers in NE Calgary

Small, wafer-thin shells are specifically created for your teeth with porcelain veneers in NE Calgary. The benefits are as follows:

  • Last longer because they’re more durable
  • Natural look on your teeth’s surface
  • Less enamel needs removed than a crown
  • Stain resistant

To prep the teeth for a veneer, a dentist will start by taking off a small amount of enamel from the front and side of the teeth. This creates enough room for the veneers to fit on and appear natural. Afterward, a dentist will then create a mold of the teeth. They’ll pick out the appropriate shade of porcelain. The mold is sent away to a lab where the veneer is then specifically crafted juts for you. At your next visit, the veneer will be put on, and the shade and shape will be double checked. Your teeth will then go through a thorough cleaning, and the veneers will be permanently placed.
