Achieve the Smile of Your Dreams
Are you hiding your smile due to discoloration or chips in your teeth? With veneers or Lumineers®, you’ll feel more confident in social situations and want to show off your smile.
These cosmetic solutions are thin, tooth-shaped pieces of porcelain that cover any visible imperfections on your teeth. They’re attached directly to your teeth and custom fit to blend seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.
You may be a candidate for either traditional porcelain veneers or Lumineers if your teeth are:
- Slightly crooked
Porcelain veneers are a great option if you want dramatic and long-lasting results.
The Difference Between Veneers and Lumineers
Porcelain veneers and Lumineers provide similar, beautiful results, and people most likely won’t be able to tell the difference. Since they’re a permanent long term solution, however, it’s important for our patients to know what makes them different.
While both are custom made to fit the height and width of your teeth, the depth of veneers and lumineers varies. Veneers tend to have a 0.5 mm minimal thickness, and Lumineers are typically 0.3 mm thick.
This might not seem like much of a difference until you realize the thickness of your natural tooth. Through a minimally invasive process, both options will stick out no further than your existing teeth.
If you’re considering porcelain veneers or Lumineers, Dr. Huff will discuss each option during your initial consultation. He’ll ask you about your expectations and goals for the outcome of your teeth.
Next, We’ll conduct an analysis of your smile to determine the shade and shape to make the veneers or Lumineers. Dr. Huff will use his advanced technology to take digital images of your teeth to ensure you’ll be satisfied with the end results.
The main difference in the process of placing veneers versus placing Lumineers is how Dr. Huff preps your teeth. Depending on the depth of your existing enamel, he’ll need to file down part of your enamel to ensure your veneers look natural.
Since Lumineers are thinner, filing down the enamel isn’t typically a necessary step. This allows for a quicker and less invasive process. However, Dr. Huff will numb the area around your tooth, so you won’t feel pain or discomfort during either procedure.
Are You a Candidate For Veneers or Lumineers?
If you’re to achieve a flawless smile, you may be a candidate for one of these treatments. Whether you choose veneers or lumineers, you’ll gain newfound confidence and will be happy with the way your smile looks. If you’re looking to whiten and correct your teeth at the same time, dental veneers or lumineers may be for you.
