One of the amazing advances that have occurred in cosmetic dentistry is porcelain veneers. Although veneers, which are thin shells of tooth-colored material, can be crafted from a variety of materials, we prefer porcelain due to its natural tendencies. A porcelain veneer will resist staining, and is durable enough to withstand biting force for many years. This material also has the appearance of natural enamel, reflecting light for that special sparkle. With porcelain veneers over one, a few, or all teeth that are visible in the smile, you can find relief from teeth that are:
- Oddly shaped, or appearing too long or too short
- Crooked or turned
- Cracked or chipped
- Significantly discolored
- Worn down
- Too widely spaced
LUMINEERS is an option for those who do not want to commit to a lifetime of porcelain veneers. LUMINEERS is a form of veneer that is specially designed to bond to teeth without the removal of enamel. This veneer is ultra-thin, but still effective at covering the common imperfections that impact the smile. Eliminating the initial preparation step does not shorten the time frame for completion of veneers. This enhancement is reversible; LUMINEERS veneer can be removed at any time.
If your smile does not leave you feeling completely confident, porcelain veneers may be the ideal treatment to change this. Contact us for your consultation for cosmetic dentistry.
