You may have heard about or seen others that have had “veneers” placed on their teeth.  Veneers are a common dental treatment during which ceramic facings are attached to the teeth to permanently alter the size, shape, shade, or alignment of the teeth.  The final appearance of the teeth is carefully designed by you and your dentist to give you the smile you have always wanted.  The big benefit of veneers is that because they are thin and strong, they have a very natural appearance, without removing a large amount of precious tooth structure.

Porcelain veneers are an ideal solution for restoring teeth and may even help you avoid orthodontic treatment. Subtle changes to your smile can be achieved with veneers, and in most cases, veneer application is completed in only two office visits.

Common problems that veneers are used for:

  • Spaces between the teeth
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Unsightly, stained or discolored teeth
  • Permanently stained or discolored teeth
  • Crooked or misshapen teeth

A thin layer of the front of the tooth is removed to allow a veneer of porcelain to be bonded to the tooth without making it any thicker.  Similar, in a way, to a false fingernail, the veneer covers dark or yellow teeth, fills unsightly gaps, lengthens short or stubby teeth, straightens crooked teeth, and in general creates a more attractive smile.  Unlike a false fingernail, veneers are more permanent.  The veneers are attached to the teeth using the most advanced methods of bonding practices.

Lumineers are a specific type of veneer that we are trained to provide that can minimize the amount of removal of tooth structure and also achieve a vibrant gleaming white smile.
