Medically reviewed by Barbie Cervoni MS, RD, CDCES, CDN

Are you looking to totally transform your smile? Dental veneers are one of the most comprehensive cosmetic treatments that we offer; with this procedure, you can make dramatic changes to the appearance of your smile.

Veneers can treat cosmetic problems and give you a movie star smile without years of orthodontic treatment. You can alter the appearance of your front-facing teeth with just one procedure. 

At Dental U Clinic, our team of experienced dentists can create a set of veneers that increases your confidence and the durability of your teeth. Reduce sensitivity, protect your natural teeth, and cover imperfections with dental veneers. We provide cosmetic dentistry services to our patients in Edmonton

What are Veneers?

Just like you might place a wooden veneer over a piece of furniture, a porcelain veneer adheres to the surface of your tooth. Veneers are small, thin covers that fit over your natural teeth. They are bonded permanently to your natural tooth using dental cement. 

At Dental U Clinic, we can create a personalized treatment plan for you. We will assess your facial shape and size, as well as the natural shade of your teeth so that your new smile fits and functions optimally. Next, we will create custom veneers that are designed to suit your smile and face shape.

After your veneers are applied, we will provide instructions for proper care, which will help your veneers last for many years.

There are two types of veneers: porcelain and composite resin veneers. Although porcelain veneers look more natural and are more durable, they cost more than their composite resin counterpart.

Who Needs Veneers?

Some dental issues cannot be corrected with teeth whitening or dental bonding. If you’ve tried other cosmetic treatments but had lacklustre results, porcelain or composite resin veneers may be right for you.

Veneers can conceal cosmetic issues like:

  • Crowding
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps
  • Stains and discolouration
  • Cracks
  • Chips

With veneers, you can correct all of these issues with one procedure. 

Before you schedule your appointment, keep in mind that this procedure is permanent. In preparation for veneers, a thin layer of enamel must be removed from your natural tooth. Tooth enamel does not regrow, which means that veneers are not reversible. They’re a permanent solution for cosmetic concerns. 

Certain conditions may interfere with the application of your veneers. Those who have TMJ disorder, decayed or damaged teeth, gum disease, or bruxism (teeth grinding) may not be the best candidates for veneers. If your tooth enamel is already decayed, it may be too invasive to remove more for the veneers. You can schedule a consultation with us to discuss these concerns.

Benefits of Dental Veneers

Should you invest in a set of porcelain veneers? Consider the following advantages that this procedure offers:

  • Enhance the functioning of your teeth. Prolonged wear and tear on your teeth may reduce your mouth comfort. Severely worn teeth may not bite together correctly which can make chewing and speaking difficult. Veneers can be used as a part of a comprehensive treatment plan to restore your smile. 
  • They’re long-lasting. The durability of veneers allows them to withstand the forces of your jaws. With the proper care, they can last for many years. 
  • Protect sensitive teeth. Do you have sensitive teeth? Veneers can act as shields for your teeth. They’ll block the pain and sensitivity that you might experience when consuming hot or cold beverages. 
  • Cover discolouration, chips, or misshapen teeth. If your teeth are decayed, they are more vulnerable to cracks and chips. Veneers protect your natural teeth and reduce the risk of a broken tooth. These hard shells boost your defences against impacts and tough foods. 

Your teeth may be discoloured due to decay or stains from beverages. Since veneers attach to the front of your teeth, they can conceal any discolouration and give you a brighter smile.

  • Hide gaps or crooked teeth. If a few of your teeth are misaligned, you might think that your only option is orthodontic treatment. However, veneers can be used to conceal crooked teeth or spaces between the teeth. 

With a set of dental veneers, you can make your smile brighter, stronger, and more uniform.

Taking Care of Dental Veneers

When you inquire about veneers, you’ll have two options: porcelain or composite resin veneers. Depending on the type of veneers you choose, the aftercare process will look slightly different. Porcelain veneers are more durable than composite resin ones; they can last almost twice as long given the proper care. Even though composite resin veneers are more affordable, they don’t last as long.

Since composite resin veneers are more prone to staining, you may want to avoid coffee, red wine, dark soda, or tea. 

Proper home care and regular preventative appointments are essential to the longevity and health of your teeth. Brushing and flossing is the first step in maintaining your new smile. Make sure to see your dentist when recommended so we can ensure that your veneers are in good shape, free of damage, and firmly attached to your natural tooth.
