Getting a smile makeover is a smart investment when it comes to the way your smile makes you feel. Whether you’ve had crowded and discolored teeth or dislike the way your smile is shaped, our porcelain veneers and Lumineers provide fast results in just a couple of visits. They are both easy cosmetic procedures that can drastically change the appearance of your teeth and smile as a whole. Many of our patients choose porcelain veneers because of its non-invasive, non-surgical nature.
Porcelain veneers offer dramatic aesthetic results in just two appointments. The thin porcelain shells bond to the front of your teeth, masking irregularities behind them. Instantly, your teeth look fuller, properly sized and shaped, straighter, and as white as you like.
Getting porcelain veneers requires a few steps. During the first appointment we’ll gently trim away a thin layer of enamel then take an impression of your teeth. Dr. Medina will specify what the new veneers should look like as we send the models of your bite to our lab. About two weeks later, your permanent porcelain veneers are ready to bond in place.
Lumineers are a no-prep veneer design that don’t require removal of any healthy tooth enamel during their placement. Instead, they’re bonded directly on top of the tooth and can be removed at any time. They’re a minimally invasive form of cosmetic dentistry that’s great for people with minor to moderate aesthetic needs.
During your cosmetic dentistry consultation at The Dentist, Dr. Medina will discuss the advantages of each type of veneer for your specific situation and share that information with you so that you can make an educated choice about your smile’s appearance.
The key is to find solutions that address your aesthetic concerns, enhance your smile’s overall appearance, look and feel natural, and accentuate your confidence all at the same time. Dr. Medina has been transforming the smiles of patients for nearly a decade, and is happy to partner with you on your journey towards a healthier looking, beautiful smile.
