Dental veneers are thin “shells” that bond to your natural teeth and improve your smile’s beauty and appearance. Most veneers are made of porcelain or resin to match the color of natural teeth. Our dentists may recommend veneers if you are looking to correct one of many imperfections, including:
- Gaps and spaces
- Stains or discoloration
- Teeth that are too long or too short
- Crooked teeth
- Chipped, broken, or cracked teeth
In most cases, dentists learn how to treat their patients with traditional dental veneers. However, at our practice, we are pleased to also offer Lumineers®. This specific brand of veneers is ultra-thin, and because of their thinness, Lumineers® can be directly applied to your natural teeth without any preparation work. There is no anesthesia, no shot, and no need to wear down your teeth. Despite being ultra-thin, Lumineers® are uniquely designed to maintain ultra-strength, making them last, in some cases, over 20 years.
Lumineers® typically take two appointments to complete. In the first visit, our dentists will take a mold of your teeth to use as a base for your custom-made veneers. We will then help you determine the proper degree of whiteness and shape of your Lumineers®. From here, we will send your mold and your customization requests to a local dental laboratory, where they will actually create your veneers. With traditional veneers, our dentists would also wear down and reshape your natural teeth during your first visit to help your veneers adhere to your teeth. With Lumineers®, however, there is no prep work, which means that you can leave your first visit with the same smile you can in with. In your second visit, our dentists will bond your customized Lumineers® to your natural teeth in a quick and pain-free procedure.
If you are looking to get your picture-perfect smile, Lumineers® is a great option for you! Not only are Lumineers® built to last but they are designed to resist stains and wear, so you can continue eating and drinking your favorite foods! Plus, Lumineers® is a completely reversible treatment, unlike traditional veneers. Should you decide that you want your natural smile back, our dentists can easily remove your Lumineers® without causing any damage to your natural teeth.
