Traditional dental veneers are thin, shell-like restorations that bond to the front of your teeth in order to improve the appearance of your smile. Most veneers are made of porcelain, making your restorations appear natural. Veneers can help repair teeth that are:
- Discolored or stained
- Misshapen or different sizes
- Fractured, broken, or chipped
In most dental offices, dentists offer only traditional veneers. However, at our practice, we have received advanced and specialized training to treat your smile with Lumineers. Lumineers work similarly to traditional veneers in that they are a porcelain “shell” that fit over your natural teeth. Unlike traditional veneers, however, Lumineers are ultra-thin, which means that they can be applied without any preparation work that removes small pieces of your natural teeth. Patients can maintain their natural smile while their customized Lumineers are made, and have a new smile that lasts more than 20 years!
It typically takes 2 appointments to complete a Lumineers treatment. First, our dentists will make an impression of your teeth and use it as a base to create your customized Lumineer “shells.” Your Lumineers will be customized to be the size, shape, and color you want. From here, our dentists will send the design for your Lumineers to a dental lab. Because Lumineers require no preparation work on your natural teeth, you can continue to enjoy your natural smile while you wait for your restorations; patients who receive traditional veneers have to wait for their veneers with teeth that have been drilled and reshaped. During your second appointment, our dentists will simply, quickly, and painlessly apply your Lumineers, instantly transforming your smile!
