Porcelain Veneers - Lumineers
Now a movie star smile is as close as your mirror! Veneers are another way you can amp up your smile. Dental veneers are custom-designed shells of tooth-like material that can cover worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, chips, or cracks. The translucent ceramic of today’s veneers provides a more natural look than what’s been available in the past. Now’s the time to get a bright, natural-looking white smile with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth!
Cover problem teeth with ultra-thin porcelain veneers
Since porcelain veneers are custom-made to fit over your natural teeth and have a more translucent finish, they’ll blend in with surrounding teeth, so people won’t notice your veneered tooth. They’ll simply see your beautiful, natural smile!
In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, dental veneers can also serve a functional purpose by protecting the surface of a damaged tooth. In some cases, veneers may replace the need for a dental crown, eliminating the need for more invasive tooth preparation.
The placement of dental veneers requires the “shaping” or “prepping” of the teeth being fitted with the custom-designed shells. This process permanently alters the teeth that are treated and is therefore not recommended if your natural teeth are functionally and esthetically adequate. For these people, we may recommend teeth whitening, a simpler alternative to having a bright, natural-looking smile.
However, if you have teeth that are dull, worn, discolored, chipped, cracked, or have uneven spacing, then porcelain dental veneers may be recommended as a more appropriate solution. Veneers do have the added benefits of longevity and a proven ability to enhance the appearance of the mouth, smile, and other areas of the face that would be better supported by properly shaped teeth. Although veneers require a much larger commitment than teeth whitening, the results are typically well worth it.
