Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures that Dr. Gordon Chee performs at his Calgary practice. And it's no wonder why! Veneers can completely transform your smile, giving you the appearance of straighter, whiter teeth.
A tooth crown can help our Alberta patients when tooth decay has gotten so severe that a filling can no longer be supported by the tooth. This happens because the remaining tooth structure is too weak.
Porcelain veneers are a versatile and powerful cosmetic dentistry tool. However, they are not right for everyone. If you are considering porcelain veneers here are some factors to consider.
Healthy Teeth: Porcelain veneers are not restorations designed to build up or protect teeth damaged by decay. You should have healthy front teeth to receive porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers can be placed on a tooth that has become discoloured because the pulp has died, but veneers used in this situation tend to have a shorter lifespan.
