Veneers are effective aesthetic “cover-ups” for damaged or stained teeth. Although some veneers are designed to be removable, most are permanent and are bonded very tightly to the tooth they are protecting. The advancements in technology have improved bonding agents to the point where it is quite common for veneers to stay active for twenty years or more.
Lumineers® are an advanced form of porcelain veneers that significantly reduce or eliminate the need for grinding down the original tooth structure in preparation of placement. Made of an ultra-thin, translucent material, Lumineers are simply placed over your own teeth or to existing crowns and bridges with no need for additional treatment, making nearly any patient seeking to improve the appearance of their smile an ideal candidate for this procedure.
