Dental veneers are used to correct both color and tooth shape problems. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of specially-shaped porcelain that are bonded over the front of your teeth. Composite resin veneers are applied directly to your teeth and sculpted to the desired shape. Both procedures can be performed without anesthesia. Veneers require a tooth reduction (where the thickness of the tooth is reduced).
In cases of serious tooth discoloration, dentists recommend dental veneers or crowns as opposed to bleaching.
Dental veneers can be a solution for:
- Severely discolored or chipped teeth;
- Misshapen or crooked teeth;
- Teeth with small holes or pits;
- Teeth with unwanted or uneven spaces;
Lumineer Porcelain Veneers
Lumineers are a new type of porcelain veneer made from Cerinate porcelain.
Cerinate is a thinner type of porcelain than the porcelain used in standard veneers. Therefore, little or no tooth reduction is required when applying a lumineer. In cases where no tooth reduction is necessary, lumineers are reversible.
Lumineers resist micro-leakage and micro-cracking more than traditional porcelain veneers.
