Transform Your Smile, Instantly

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed to cover your teeth’ front surface. They are typically made from porcelain or composite resin and can be used to correct a range of dental imperfections, such as discoloration, chipping, or misalignment. Veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment because they can quickly and dramatically transform the appearance of your smile.

Reasons You May Need Veneers:

  • Discolored teeth that cannot be whitened with traditional teeth whitening methods
  • Worn down or chipped teeth that have lost their shape or size
  • Gaps between teeth that may be too small for braces
  • Misaligned teeth that are not severe enough to require orthodontic treatment
  • Uneven or irregularly shaped teeth that may affect the overall appearance of your smile
  • A desire to improve the overall aesthetics of your smile and boost your self-confidence

Types of Veneers:

Porcelain Veneers:

These are the most popular type of veneers made from a thin shell of porcelain custom-made to fit over the front surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are highly durable and resistant to staining and can last up to 15 years with proper care.

Composite Veneers:

These veneers are made from a tooth-colored resin material that is applied directly to the surface of your teeth and sculpted to the desired shape. Composite veneers are less expensive than porcelain veneers and can be completed in a single visit, but they may not last as long and are more prone to staining and chipping.

Porcelain: The Ideal Replacement for Natural Enamel

Porcelain veneers are excellent for those looking to achieve a natural-looking smile. This is because porcelain closely mimics the look and feel of natural tooth enamel, with a translucent quality that allows light to pass through, just like natural teeth. Porcelain is also highly durable and resistant to staining, making it a great long-term solution for those looking to improve their smile.

Porcelain Veneers: The Stain-Resistant Option

One of the many benefits of porcelain dental veneers in Edmonton is their stain-resistant properties. Unlike natural teeth, which are prone to discoloration from coffee, tea, red wine, and other dark-colored foods and beverages, porcelain is highly resistant to staining. This means that your porcelain veneers will maintain their beautiful, white appearance over time, even with regular consumption of staining substances.

Your Complete Veneers Journey

At Davinci Smiles, we are committed to making your veneer journey as seamless and stress-free as possible, and our expert team will guide you through each step of the process. The process of getting dental veneers in Edmonton typically involves several steps, including:

  • Consultation: During your initial consultation, we evaluate your oral health, discuss your concerns and goals, and determine if veneers are the best solution for you.
  • Preparation: If veneers are right for you, we prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from the surface of your teeth to make room for the veneers.
  • Impression: We take a mold of your teeth, which will be used to create your custom-made veneers. We also take impressions of your teeth and the desired shade.
  • Temporary Veneers: While your permanent veneers are being crafted, we will place temporary veneers on your teeth to protect them from damage.
  • Fitting: Once your permanent veneers are ready, we will fit them onto your teeth and make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable and natural fit.
  • Bonding: Finally, we will bond your veneers onto your teeth using a special adhesive and light-curing process, giving you a beautiful, long-lasting smile.

Veneers vs. Crowns

Dental veneers and crowns are both popular options for enhancing the appearance of teeth, but they serve different purposes and have distinct advantages.

Veneers are thin shells, typically made of porcelain, bonded to the front surface of teeth. They are an excellent choice for correcting minor cosmetic imperfections such as chips, cracks, or stains and improving the shape and alignment of teeth. Dental veneers require minimal tooth preparation, making them a conservative option compared to crowns. However, they may not be suitable for teeth with significant structural damage or decay.

On the other hand, dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover the entire visible portion of a tooth above the gum line. Crowns are recommended for teeth that have undergone extensive damage or decay, providing strength, protection, and support. Unlike veneers, crowns are better suited for restoring the function of a tooth, especially for molars that endure heavy chewing. While crowns require more tooth reduction than veneers, they offer superior durability.

Veneers Before & After

Veneers FAQs

How long do veneers last?

Typically dental veneers in Edmonton last between 10 to 15 years, but their lifespan depends on factors like oral hygiene and lifestyle. Regular dental check-ups and proper care can extend their longevity, ensuring a beautiful smile for an extended period.

Are veneers a solution for crooked teeth?

Veneers can improve the appearance of mildly crooked teeth, but they are not a substitute for orthodontic treatment in cases of severe misalignment. Consult our dentist to determine if veneers or orthodontics are the right solution for your needs.

Are veneers reversible?

Veneers are not considered a reversible dental procedure. To prepare teeth for veneers, a small amount of enamel must be removed. Once this enamel is gone, it cannot be restored, so you’ll always need some form of veneers for your teeth.

What is the recovery time after getting veneers?

Recovery time for veneers is minimal. Patients may experience some mild sensitivity and discomfort for a few days after the procedure, but it subsides quickly. Most people can return to their regular activities and diet shortly after getting dental veneers in Edmonton.

Can veneers be repaired if damaged?

Veneers can be repaired or replaced if they get damaged or show signs of wear over time. Your dentist can evaluate the extent of the damage and recommend the appropriate course of action, which may involve repairing the existing veneer or replacing it with a new one.
