“It’s very common for a patient to come in and want their teeth fixed or whitened. If it is a matter of discolored teeth that are very discolored from tooth to tooth that are somewhat misshapen but fairly good alignment we may choose veneers. ”

Permanently White. Perfectly Fitted.
Veneers and Lumineers are thin, semi-translucent shells of porcelain that are attached to the front surface of the teeth to conceal imperfections, and can give your smile attractive symmetry in as little as two appointments. These customized restorations are crafted to match the size, shape, and color of your teeth to create a look that complements your natural beauty and facial structure.
While veneers may need the front surface of the tooth enamel to be slightly altered before placement, Lumineers are thinner and can be bonded to the tooth without any alterations. The main benefits of these cosmetic options are:
- Durability-Porcelain is very strong and resistant to chipping and cracking.
- Stain Resistance-Veneers and Lumineers are highly resistant to staining, even more than your natural enamel.
- Natural Look-Porcelain is translucent like natural tooth enamel for a more natural appearance.
- Customization-Porcelain can be correctly matched to virtually any tooth color or shade.
- Comprehensiveness- Veneers and Lumineers can address several aesthetic issues at once, including stains, chips, cracks, excessive spacing, slight crookedness, and more.
A Stunning Blend of Technology and Craftsmanship
To improve the accuracy of size, shape, and color of your veneers or Lumineers, we use Digital Smile Design, a software program that lets us plan your treatment digitally. During your appointment, we will be able to visualize the aesthetics of your final smile before treatment begins, allowing you to give your input along with our professional recommendations. Once we have decided on the most ideal options for you, we will have the porcelain veneers or Lumineers prepared over the next one to two weeks. At your second appointment, your permanent veneers or Lumineers will be bonded onto the front of the teeth.
