Minor smile imperfections are an easy fix for our skilled dental team. Porcelain veneers enable Calgary dentist Dr. Sahra Kanji to solve a number of appearance issues that might be holding your smile back. You may be a good porcelain veneers candidate if you have:
- Small tooth chips
- Minor cracks that aren’t a threat to tooth structure
- Yellow teeth, graying of enamel, and general discoloration
- Crooked teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Rotated teeth
- Teeth that are too short
- Worn teeth
- Minor gapping
Please note that porcelain veneers are strictly a cosmetic dentistry treatment and are not recommended for teeth with structural damage. They may be added to a tooth to enhance its appearance once it is properly repaired with the appropriate restorative dental procedure.
Your Custom-Designed Porcelain Veneers
Our experienced dental team will design your new porcelain veneers based on the digital impressions taken during your thorough exam. Dr. Kanji’s goal is to collaborate with the lab to ensure your finished result fits your smile and successfully solves your aesthetic issues.
During your porcelain veneers appointment, Dr. Kanji will remove a slight amount of original tooth structure to prepare the area for your new restoration. Then an impression is taken of the reshaped tooth and sent to our dental lab for use in preparation of your veneers. After the lab team creates your porcelain veneers, they are sent to our office, and you return once more for a final fitting. If necessary, the surfaces of the teeth receiving the veneers are slightly roughened to create a better bonding environment. Once the fit is checked and we are comfortable with the result, Dr. Kanji will permanently affix the porcelain veneers to your front tooth faces.
Your porcelain veneers will look just like natural teeth, so no one will be able to tell you have had dental work. All of our porcelain veneers are expertly crafted by our local lab partners, the Aurum Group. Aurum is an internationally recognized dental lab with a reputation for high standards and fine quality restorations.
