Make your chipped, broken, or stained smile beautiful again with dental veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain that are bonded to the surface of your teeth. If your teeth have been discolored by tetracycline, if they have gaps, or if they have been chipped or broken during an injury or root canal, we may recommend dental veneers.
The placement of these veneers requires a high level of skill, talent, and precision. With years of experience, our dentists at Lifetime Dental Health can help transform your smile!
Who Are Veneers for?
We recommend dental veneers for those whose teeth are:
- Shaped irregularly
- Eroded, or
These porcelain shells can be molded and shaped to match your natural teeth. With dental veneers, you won’t ever have to worry about coffee, tea, or smoking stains again.
What Should I Expect?
During your first consultation, Dr. Barry or Dr. Love will determine a diagnosis and treatment plan. Our doctors will discuss your personal goals and what changes you would like made. They will also discuss any limitations and risks to determine if veneers are the right treatment option for you.
Next, we will prepare your teeth to receive your permanent veneers. To do this, your teeth will be lightly buffed and molds will be taken. Each veneer is custom-created in a special dental lab. Once your veneers are ready, your dentist will complete treatment by bonding them to your teeth.
With proper care, veneers can last for many years. Dr. Barry or Dr. Love will help you develop a hygiene plan to care for your new veneers.
What Sets Lifetime Dental Health Apart?
Installing traditional veneers takes a long time. With traditional veneers, the final mold can take a long time to make – meaning a temporary crown must be placed on your teeth while you wait. These temporary crowns are then removed and the permanent veneers are bonded to your teeth. With this process, patients often have to come in for additional appointments after placement to make sure the veneers fit properly and do not affect the bite.
This process is long and unnecessary. That’s why at Lifetime Dental Health, we use LUMINEERS.
Unlike traditional veneers, LUMINEERS don’t require drilling or shots. They are thin and simple to place. With LUMINEERS, you can have flawless teeth again in just two visits!
