Dental Veneers Overview

February 22, 2017 Dental Veneers

Have you ever thought that you would love to have a more attractive smile, but thought that you could not afford cosmetic dentistry treatments? You might be surprised to learn that not all cosmetic treatments are out of your reach. Dental veneers can be a cost-effective way of correcting many dental issues.

Of course, you have other options, but porcelain veneers could work for you. Today’s porcelain veneers are very different from those of days gone by – you have probably seen artificial-looking smiles, with teeth that look too big, too white, and just generally unnatural. Today’s dental veneers are made from natural-looking porcelain (the material that most resembles real teeth), and they are thin as well. In fact, unless you want to tell people that you have had dental veneers installed, there is no reason why they have to know.

The Benefits

Dental veneers can give you a better smile with not much time spent in your Edmonton dentist’s chair. Usually, they only require a couple of visits. There are, of course, other cosmetic dentistry treatments that you can consider, but if you do not need a full restoration, dental veneers can be a good option. They will correct many dental imperfections, like discoloration, minor gapping or crowding, or a gummy smile.

The Procedure

When you come to see Dr. Alex Pavlenko at Sana Dental in Edmonton in order to have dental veneers created, first he will scrape away some of your tooth enamel in order to ensure that your veneers will fit properly. Then, he will take impressions of your teeth, and send them to a lab. When your veneers are delivered, we will call you so that you can come in and have them fitted. This will involve a bit more preparation, and you and Dr. Pavlenko will check out the veneers to make sure that the shape and color are right. Then, Dr. Pavlenko will install them using a special cement, and you will have the smile you have always wanted.
