Porcelain Veneers


Sometimes our happiness is dampened when we feel self-conscious of the imperfections in our teeth. Instead of smiling with confidence, we may be trying to conceal stains, misalignment, or deformities in our teeth. Modern dentistry addresses several shortcomings to smiles with one efficient treatment: porcelain veneers.

If you are searching for a compassionate team to give you a smile you can be proud of, call the office of CK Dental. Dr. Clara Kwak provides porcelain veneers to dramatically transform the aesthetics of your teeth. She gives professional care to people in Edmonton and surrounding communities.

Veneers Cover a Multitude of Imperfections

Veneers consist of a porcelain based, an ultra-thin shell that is securely affixed onto the fronts of teeth. They can add appeal to smiles in the following ways:

  • Give teeth a whiter appearance
  • Treat chips and cracks
  • Change the size of teeth
  • Straighten crowded teeth
  • Give a more desirable shape to teeth
  • Fill gaps and spaces between teeth

Dental Process of Veneers

Porcelain veneers are completed in two office visits. During the first visit, CK Dental shaves off a very small part of the enamel, less than .3 millimeters, form the front of the tooth. Dr. Clara Kwak is very conservative in her removal of tooth enamel. Then, an accurate impression is taken of teeth using a molding paste. Using these impressions, a laboratory designs your customized veneers to fit perfectly onto the precise contours of your teeth.

At your second visit, the veneers are expertly cemented onto the teeth using a curing light. Many people choose to place veneers on the “social six” or the six most visible teeth in the upper and lower jaw. These prosthetics are very natural in appearance, and the porcelain is stronger than tooth enamel. Veneers can also be an alternative to brighten smiles for people whose teeth are too sensitive to undergo whitening treatments.

Some people choose to undergo professional whitening before placement of veneers, so the veneers can be matched the optimal shade of neighboring teeth.
