A dental veneer is a thin layer of synthetic material (porcelain or composite) that is bonded to the tooth’s surface. Veneers are a great alternative to otherwise painful dental procedures to improve the appearance of your smile.
Common problems that Veneers will address:
Spaces between the teeth
Broken or chipped teeth
Permanently stained or discolored teeth
Crooked or misshapen teeth
Veneers are often referred to “Instant Orthodontics”. A substantial aesthetic effect can be obtained with a veneer and minimal tooth preparation is required.
Veneers are applied to the teeth in 2 visits to the dentist:
Visit # 1 Veneer Preparation: The teeth are prepared by removing 0.3 to 0.5 mm of enamel (the thickness of a fingernail) to allow room for the veneer layer. An impression of the teeth is taken and sent to the specialized dental laboratory that will create the veneers.
Visit # 2 Veneer Bonding: Bonding involves all the steps that permanently attach the veneer to the tooth. After a cleaning of the tooth, the veneer is bonded to the tooth with a special dental cement. This dental cement is then hardened with a blue curing light.

What Are Lumineers?
LUMINEERS – Porcelain Veneers That Do Not Require Removing Tooth Structure
LUMINEERS are a terrific cosmetic solution for permanently stained, chipped, discolored, misaligned teeth, or even to revitalize old crown and bridgework.
LUMINEERS are a porcelain veneer that can be made as thin as a contact lens and is placed over existing teeth without the removal of sensitive tooth structure that traditional veneers require.
LUMINEERS can only be made from patented Cerinate porcelain and can only be applied by LUMINEERS-certified dentists like ours. In just two or three visits to the dentist, LUMINEERS provides a custom-made smile clinically proven to last up to 20 years.
