Patients ask: can veneers repair my chipped teeth?
Enamel may be the hardest substance in the body, but that does not mean it cannot sustain damage like a chip or a crack, which can diminish a patient’s willingness to smile with warmth and confidence. This does not have to be the case. Chipped or cracked teeth do not have to impact an individual’s smile or self-assurance negatively. Repair may be as simple as natural-looking and custom-designed porcelain veneers.
Our professional dental team at Living Wellness Dental Northland in Calgary provides a complete range of advanced dentistry, including porcelain veneers.
Why porcelain veneers are ideal for repairing chips, cracks and more
Dentists all around the world have been repairing tooth damage for centuries. In the last 100 years alone, we have seen an influx of innovative techniques and lifelike materials with which patients can achieve lasting functionality without impacting the natural appearance of teeth. Porcelain is the material that most closely resembles natural enamel. For this reason, it is preferred by many dentists and their patients as a wonderful alternative to composite.
Porcelain is not only durable enough to withstand biting and chewing, but this material is also translucent and reflective, the very things you would want for your smile. To maintain authenticity, we only need to reduce the surface enamel slightly. Even after the thin veneer is placed over the tooth to cover the gap, crack or chip, the structure remains slightly see-through at the tip. Using a careful eye, we will design veneers to the ideal shape, colour and size to suit the individual patient.
Veneers and their many uses
One of the reasons that veneer treatment is so popular is that, in just one or two visits, it is possible to completely transform the appearance of teeth, giving each patient the smile of his or her dreams. Veneers can often do the work of a crown without needing more complex tooth preparation. For instance, a tooth that is slightly turned can be made to appear straight through the placement of skilfully crafted veneers.
