Porcelain veneers are a type of cosmetic dentistry procedure that is used to restore a smile when teeth are badly discolored, stained or even misshapen. They are made of a porcelain material which is fit exactly to your teeth and looks completely natural. The goal is to ensure that your smile is healthy, and the size, shape, and color that you want with an emphasis on being natural looking and that your bite is comfortable for long lasting beautiful results.
Lumineers are a brand of porcelain veneers which are only made at the DenMat Laboratory. These are ultra-thin veneers; compared to traditional fittings that are about 0.5mm thick, Lumineers are only 0.3mm in thickness. While this may seem minuscule, the difference is huge when we are talking about a layering over your teeth. Lumineers are proven to be extremely effective and look amazing, which is why our cosmetic dentist Dr. Lowery uses them at Avery Ranch.
The advantages of this brand of veneer, besides the fact that they are so thin, is that they require very little grinding or shaving of your teeth and indeed, sometimes none at all. The process of applying them requires no prep work and the application can be entirely painless. The final result is 100% permanent and a beautiful restoration of chipped, stained, discolored or improperly aligned teeth.
Your dentist is your best resource when determining if you are a candidate for any restorative or cosmetic dentistry procedure. Many people can take advantage of the option for porcelain veneers in general and Lumineers specifically. The best way to find out for sure is to have an exam or consultation with Dr. Lowery at Avery Ranch Dental.
During a consult, the dentist can look at your teeth, assess your needs and give you the opportunity to discuss options and ask any questions you might have. To find out more about how Lumineers can transform and restore your smile, call us or request an online appointment today.
