When it comes to completely transforming a tooth, dental veneers are the option that many patients decide upon. Veneers are constructed from thin sheets of porcelain that are custom made to fit over a tooth. Dental veneers are most often used in the visible smile zone and can completely transform a smile.
Veneers are ideal for:
Veneers are particularly helpful for tackling more than one issue. Why repair a crack and whiten a tooth when a veneer can accomplish both tasks? Veneers do require healthy teeth, and a small amount of enamel will need to be removed in order to make space for the veneers.
Lumineers are an alternative to veneers that can work well for many patients. Instead of being permanently installed on the teeth, Lumineers fit over the natural tooth and can be removed if needed. While those with tooth decay or gum disease will need to be treated before they can receive Lumineers, they do not require any enamel to be removed since they are actually thinner than veneers, but use a super strong material called Cerinate.
Lumineers are ideal for those that want to transform their smile without the invasive treatments needed for veneers. Additionally, many people start with Lumineers as a trial before fully committing to receiving porcelain veneers.
