Did you know that porcelain veneers aren’t just for aesthetic purposes? They can preserve your teeth from decay and fill cracks that may otherwise be susceptible to harmful bacteria. Aptly known as “Hollywood teeth”, porcelain veneers can transform the look of your smile, which is why they are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services in Calgary.
Porcelain veneers (also known as dental laminates) are made of tooth-coloured porcelain or composite resin and are bonded to the front of the teeth. They match the colour of your surrounding teeth and look incredibly natural. Your dentist can also whiten your natural teeth to your desired shade and match your porcelain veneers to achieve a beautiful, bright smile.
