At Monterey Dental Centre, as NE Calgary Dental Clinic, we focus on not only creating a white and luminous smile, but we also consider the impact that dental restorations can have on your natural tooth structure. Patients who wish to enhance or change the look of healthy teeth have the option to consider porcelain veneers to achieve their goals.
Previously, the only way to correct dental imperfections was to cover the tooth with a dental crown. However, we now have several alternatives to traditional crown restorations including composite resin bonding, porcelain veneers, or even aesthetic contouring or dental orthodontics.
So What Is A Porcelain Veneer?
A veneer is only a thin shell of porcelain or plastic. It is bonded to the tooth to improve its color and shape. It generally covers only the front and top of a tooth.
When teeth are chipped or beginning to wear, veneers can protect them from potential damage and restore their original appearance.
