Veneers are routinely used to cover teeth which are discolored, worn, chipped, or misaligned. Veneers are used for many of the same reasons as bonding but they involve a different procedure. If you are looking for a dentist in Edmonton to find a solution for worn or misaligned teeth, give Lumos Dental a call at (780) 433-0222 and Dr. Muntaka Shah can help you find an affordable solution such as Veneers.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or resin that measure less than 1.5mm thickness. First, Dr. Muntaka Shah will prepare your tooth and then take an impression of the prepared tooth, possibly place a temporary filling in the space, and send the impression to a dental laboratory to have the veneers manufactured.
The veneer is then cemented into place. Although veneers are more expensive and time-consuming than bonding, they are less expensive and conserve tooth structure when compared to crowns.
Typically veneers are difficult to stain, making veneers a very popular solution for many people seeking that perfect smile. Strong and very durable, veneers last from ten to fifteen years, and come in colors that will brighten dark teeth without the worry of them changing colour.
