Veneers, Lumineers, & Snap-On Smile
When it comes to veneers for teeth, there are a variety of options. Traditional porcelain veneers are thin, custom-designed casings that go on the front of teeth to change their shape, color, or general appearance in essentially any way you want.
When traditional veneers are applied, a small amount of tooth enamel typically needs to be removed to fit the permanent veneers onto the teeth. The required amount of enamel adjustment depends on the existing tooth alignment. Teeth that exhibit excessive of crowding or spacing tend to require more enamel reduction when compared to teeth with milder alignment issues. For this reason, veneers are usually an irreversible treatment so it is important to be prepared for a new, permanently improved smile!
Lumineers system veneers are an alternative to traditional porcelain veneers that require even less shaping preparation of the teeth before the veneers are applied. Lumineers procedures are fast, commonly only taking a few visits. If you are ready for a smile upgrade but maybe not one quite as involved as traditional veneers, Lumineers could be a great solution for you.
Occasionally, patients may be a candidate for no-prep porcelain veneers. These veneer cases require absolutely no enamel reduction. Contact us for a definitive determination on your veneer case!
