Two of the most popular options in restorative cosmetic dentistry today are veneers and Lumineers. Both are made of thin, durable porcelain material and both can provide natural-looking, long-lasting results when prepared by an experienced, competent dentist. In order to determine which option is best for you, a cosmetic dentist is the best, your dentist will consider a variety of circumstances which include your unique dental history, overall health, personal desires, expectations, and his/her professional understanding of your particular situation to create a beautiful final result.
Advantages of Dental Veneers & Dental Lumineers
A traditional veneer is essentially a conservative crown. Rather than encompassing the entire tooth a cosmetic veneer covers the visible part of a tooth, preserving a large amount of the natural tooth structure. They can straighten, lengthen, and whiten teeth to provide a beautiful smile and even create a more comfortable bite position. For optimal results, each veneered tooth must be shaped. This means that a thin layer (approximately .5 mm) of the natural tooth structure is removed to allow space for placement.
