What Can Veneers & Lumineers Fix?
Both porcelain veneers and Lumineers have the ability to fix many different types of aesthetic concerns. Here are some reasons you might consider this type of treatment:
- If you have severely stained or yellow teeth.
- If you want to lengthen short teeth.
- If you want to reshape teeth.
- If you want to fix chipped teeth.
- If you have minor misalignment.
- If you have small gaps between your teeth.
Our team would be happy to discuss ways that we can improve your smile with veneers or Lumineers.
Dental veneers are a permanent procedure. In order to make sure they fit and look natural, we will need to remove a minimal amount of enamel to leave space for the veneer to be bonded to. Otherwise, the veneers may seem bulky or look unnatural.
While oftentimes more expensive than Lumineers, veneers are considered to have a more natural appearance and feel. They are also used for more dramatic smile transformations.
Dental Lumineers are the same general idea as veneers but they are thinner than traditional veneers (they’re about as thick as a contact lens!), which means they require far less or no prep work at all on your teeth. You may hear them referred to as no-prep veneers.
Since most of the time they don’t require altering your tooth structure, you will be able to preserve your enamel. You also won’t have to wear any temporaries while waiting for your custom Lumineers.
What are the benefits of dental veneers?
Since veneers are bound to your teeth, they are a great lasting solution that revamps appearance and boosts your smile. There is no need to worry about cracks or stains, our veneers cover all imperfections. The porcelain doesn’t react negatively with the surrounding gums, so you won’t have to worry about inflammation. The best part? They are virtually stain-resistant. Call our office today to learn more!
Are porcelain veneers permanent?
If they are well-taken care of, your dental veneers can last you many years, possibly a lifetime. They are not considered permanent, but there have been patients that have never had to replace them. We suggest you brush and floss your teeth two-times daily to ensure a clean mouth. The best way to make sure your veneers last is to maintain regular appointments. Just keep in mind that they are irreversible. Make sure to talk to our team to make sure that you are making the right choice for your smile.
