Porcelain Veneers in Millwoods, Southeast Edmonton
Your dentist will remove a tiny amount of your enamel to apply the veneers. The removal of enamel allows the veneers to fit seamlessly and restore your natural tooth’s functions. A strong bond between the porcelain veneers and your teeth ensures both an aesthetic appearance and proper functionality. A resin is hardened with a curing light after it has been placed between your tooth and the veneer.
Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. We place veneers routinely, and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile.
Results are usually best when the front 8 teeth are treated, as your profile will also be improved.

- Dentists may also recommend veneers to quickly fix poor shape, minor bite-related problems, small gaps and damaged teeth.
- They have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility.
Will they look like normal teeth?
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
How durable are porcelain veneers?
With proper care, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for well over a decade.
Your dentist at Agape Dental Clinic Mill Woods will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.
Refraining from using your veneers as tools to open and cut things will prolong their life, and if accidental breakage or damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.
Maintenance of a Porcelain Veneer
Maintaining porcelain veneers is quite simple: Treat them as you would your original teeth, with routine brushing and flossing. Your dentist will typically suggest using non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste.
One week after your veneers are placed, you will be required to return to the office for a follow-up visit and evaluation so the dentist can see how your mouth is reacting to the veneers. Even if you feel the veneers are a success, this appointment is vital to your future oral health.
If you have a habit of grinding or clenching your teeth, your dentist may fit you with a nighttime bite guard so you do not damage your veneers.
You should also return to your dentist for regular professional maintenance because porcelain veneers should be polished with a specially formulated, non-abrasive paste, and because your dentist needs to inspect your dentistry for any sign of potential failure.
