SMILE MAKEOVERS WITH PORCELAIN VENEERS AND LUMINEERS
Sometimes, improving a smile means removing irreversibly blemished tooth structure and replacing it with a lifelike, resilient, and minimally-invasive material. In the case of porcelain veneers, that means lightly preparing the front surfaces of your teeth and then artfully bonding the hand-made veneers over them. Veneers offer a nearly instant makeover for patients with a multitude of cosmetic blemishes, from severe discoloration to problems with the size, shape, and alignment of one or more teeth. For some patients, Lumineers are a better option; they’re thinner shape allows for the same smile improvement benefits with little or no need to prepare the teeth first.
THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOUR SMILE
Porcelain veneers and Lumineers are often recommended when patients have more than one cosmetic blemish to deal with. Because they’re permanently bonded onto the front surfaces of your teeth, the small, highly realistic shells of porcelain can address several different types of issues that might otherwise require more than one treatment. In some cases, they can even help correct slightly crooked teeth without the need for orthodontic braces or cosmetic clear aligners. For a more conservative option, speak with Dr. Wright about your eligibility for thinner, less invasive Lumineers.
