A variety of cosmetic dental concerns can be corrected with porcelain veneers. This customizable procedure can change the shape, size, colour, and position of your teeth. Your dentist crafts them with your goal in mind.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers in Saskatoon are crafted from wafer-thin shells of porcelain that conceal the surface of your teeth, improving their appearance. These tooth-coloured shells closely resemble natural teeth and are an excellent solution for those with chips, cracks, worn enamel, discolouration, tooth gaps, and other damage. Porcelain veneers, are also stain-resistant and durable. The porcelain material mimics the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth.
We are happy to provide porcelain veneers to improve your confidence in your smile. When receiving porcelain veneers, very little of your enamel is removed. Porcelain veneers are also very easy to maintain! They require no extra steps from your regular oral hygiene routine. As long as you are brushing twice, flossing daily, and scheduling frequent dental visits, your veneers will look as good as they did the day you received them.
