Porcelain Veneers & Lumineers

Do you think you have ugly teeth? Are they misshapen with gaps between your teeth? Are they discolored? These and more can be resolved through porcelain veneers. Dr. Justin Wright of Just Wright Dental is able to transform your look with veneers.

What Are Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that fit over your regular teeth to change your look. They are strong and resilient just like your natural teeth. They give you confidence and a better smile. They fix problems as stated earlier.

The first step in the porcelain veneers process is to have a consultation with your dentist. He or she can advise you on why veneers are recommended. Before you take this option, you must understand your ultimate goal of getting veneers. You should consider all choices available to you. Porcelain veneers are made of several thin layers of ceramic material, which are intended to replace the original enamel of your tooth. There is also an adhesive layer. The porcelain veneer procedure involves removing a small amount of the tooth. This is done to create room for the veneer.

What Are the Benefits?

Veneers are customized for the patient who is to wear them. Veneers also have the advantage of being resistant to stains from tea, coffee and cigarette smoke. Your teeth remain intact because a minute amount of enamel is removed to make way for the veneers. For teeth that are so darkened that even teeth whitening procedures do not work, veneers are an excellent choice for making them appear whiter. They also are great for teeth that overlap or teeth that have small gaps.

What Are the Drawbacks?

Once they are placed on your teeth, porcelain veneers cannot be removed because a portion of the original tooth enamel is eliminated during preparation. It takes at least a week to create porcelain veneers, so they are not a fast solution that can be done in one office visit.

After the porcelain veneers are in place, you may be sensitive to hot and cold food and beverages for some time because of the removal of enamel. However, this discomfort will pass within a few days. Veneers can be brittle, so you must be careful not to chew your fingernails, chew ice or open any beer bottles with them because they could break. With proper hygiene, veneers will last up to 20 years.

What Are Lumineers?

Lumineers are a specific brand of veneers. They differ from other veneers by being thinner. The less invasive technique gets rid of the requirement to be sedated or need temporary veneers. While you are waiting for the Lumineer veneers, you won’t feel discomfort. While many dentists offer veneers, not all dentists have been trained to deliver the signature benefits of Lumineers veneers. Therefore, you should contact a dentist, like Just Wright Dental, who has experience in placing Lumineers veneers.
