At Summit Family Dentistry, we’ve helped countless patients get the smile of their dreams with our dental veneer treatment options. Read on to learn more about how you could get your dream smile!
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells made from porcelain. Once bonded to your teeth, they can cover up a variety of imperfections like stains, alignment issues, and other flaws. You can cover just the problem teeth or get a complete smile of dental veneers. Celebrities like Tom Cruise, Miley Cyrus, and many others have relied on dental veneers to deliver a smile ready for the red carpet.
Because dental veneers are designed to fit snugly against your natural teeth, some preparation is required. Before placing your dental veneers, we will remove a small portion of your existing tooth enamel. Then, we’ll take an impression of your teeth and send it away to our lab. Once your custom-created veneers are ready, we’ll permanently bond them to your teeth.
What Are Lumineers?
Lumineers® are a special type of porcelain veneer that are even thinner than traditional veneers. Because they’re so thin, they do not require any removal of your natural tooth enamel. Additionally, Lumineers are not permanent – you can remove them, if necessary. Your Summit Family Dentistry team will let you know whether Lumineers are a good option for your personal needs during your consultation.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Veneers?
There are many factors that can influence whether you’re a good candidate for dental veneers, including your oral health history, your goals for your smile, and your financial concerns. During your consultation, our team will help you decide whether dental veneers, Lumineers, or some other cosmetic treatment is the best option for your best smile.
