Long lasting porcelain veneers or Lumineers can enhance the appearance of your smile by brightening teeth, closing spaces, and altering the size and shape of your teeth. Made from strong dental porcelain, veneers and Lumineers are stain-resistant and reflect light much like tooth enamel so that you can enjoy the flawless smile you have always wanted.
If you select traditional porcelain veneers, plan on two or three visits to our office. During the first appointment, Dr. Liner or Dr. Ward will examine your mouth, study your skin tone, and choose veneers that will complement your facial features and personality. The doctor will then prepare your teeth and take molds so that the skilled ceramist can use the impressions to handcraft your veneers. At this visit, the dentist will also place temporary veneers, which you will wear until the custom restorations arrive. Once we receive the permanent veneers, you will return for any necessary adjustments and final placement.
No-prep veneers like Lumineers allow our dentists to enhance your smile with the most conservative method available. Lumineers don’t require enamel removal, so patients can reverse the procedure and return to their original smiles in the future. Because Lumineers may look bulky or unnatural on some patients, your dentist will discuss both options in detail so that you can make the best choice for your smile.
