Dr. Nagra and Dr. Wasik are general dentists, not cosmetic dentist specialists. Cosmetic dentistry is not a term/specialty recognized by the Alberta Dental Association & College (ADA&C). Dr. Nagra and Dr. Wasik provide cosmetic dental procedures such as porcelain veneers, dental implant crowns, dental bonding, and teeth whitening as part of their general dentist license.
Porcelain veneers, placed at our Calgary clinic, can be a very effective way to repair or enhance your smile. They can beautify your smile and help boost your confidence!
At our Calgary clinic, we use porcelain veneers to:
- Change the shape and colour of teeth
- Close gaps between teeth
- Lengthen and correct small or misshapen teeth
- Repair cracked, broken or chipped teeth
- Whiten darkened or yellow stained teeth
- Straighten crooked teeth without orthodontics
We can place porcelain veneers for one or two problem teeth, or for several teeth to improve your whole smile.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of tooth-coloured porcelain that can be bonded to the front of your teeth to change their appearance. They look and function just like your natural teeth, so neither you nor anyone else will be able to tell that you have veneers.
How we Place Porcelain Veneers
After a thorough examination and discussions with you, it only takes two appointments at our Calgary clinic to restore your teeth with porcelain veneers.
Your teeth are shaped and prepared at your first appointment and an impression of your mouth is taken. A precise model of your teeth is then fabricated, which ensures your veneers are crafted to exactly fit your teeth.
On your second appointment we bond your porcelain veneers to your teeth with an adhesive, and the process is then complete. Since this bond is extremely strong, the veneers virtually become part of your teeth and they will feel and function just like your natural teeth.
