We offer dental veneers in South Calgary to help our patients achieve their dream smiles. Veneers may dramatically change the appearance of your teeth by concealing several types of tooth flaws, including:

  • Short or worn teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Shape abnormalities
  • Visual bite alignment
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Discoloured teeth
  • Gummy smiles

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are wafer-thin shields that we bond to the front of your teeth. These shields give the appearance of a healthy and symmetrical smile.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Veneers?

Our dental veneers in South Calgary may help you feel more confident when smiling.

You can opt for a single veneer or multiple veneers based on your cosmetic goals.

Additionally, dental veneers are minimally invasive—your dentist removes a negligible amount of enamel for bonding, but there is no pain or recovery time.  

How Long Will My Veneers Last?

We use quality materials when choosing veneers in South Calgary, and with proper care, they may last for years or even for decades. However, if you damage a veneer, we recommend replacement because of enamel removal before bonding.

Tips to increase the longevity of your dental veneers include:

  • An excellent oral care routine
  • Regular dental visits
  • Never using your veneers (or your teeth) as tools to open a bottle
  • Talking to your dentist about a nightguard if you have bruxism (grinding and clenching your teeth)
  • Wearing the proper face or mouth gear if you play contact sports—this is true even if you don’t have dental veneers

Dental veneers and other restorative or cosmetic dentistry options will not prevent gum disease, which may lead to tooth and cosmetic dentistry loss.
