Veneers

Traditional porcelain veneers, alternatively termed “dental veneers” or “dental porcelain laminates” are wafer-thin shells of porcelain permanently bonded to teeth that are discolored, worn, chipped, or misaligned. Porcelain veneers are non-porous (they will not stain), incredibly resilient, and “kind” (non-abrasive) to opposing teeth. When a veneer is firmly bonded to a sturdy substructure (like a tooth) it becomes very strong and durable.

A traditional veneer is essentially a conservative crown. Rather than encompassing the entire tooth a cosmetic veneer covers the visible part of a tooth preserving a large amount of the natural tooth structure. Veneers can straighten, lengthen, and whiten teeth to provide a beautiful smile and even create a more comfortable bite position. For optimal results each veneered tooth must be shaped. This means a thin layer (approximately .5 mm) of the natural tooth structure is removed to allow space for veneer placement.

Lumineers

LUMINEERS® are different than a traditional veneer in the way they are manufactured and placed. LUMINEERS® is a brand of porcelain veneers, (DuraThins™ is another brand with similar properties and application). A LUMINEERS® restoration is as thin as a contact lens and placed over existing teeth without having to remove tooth structure. Like traditional porcelain veneers, LUMINEERS® restorations are an excellent cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discolored, or misaligned teeth.

An ideal candidate for LUMINEERS® must have enough remaining tooth surface on which to bond the LUMINEERS® to ensure long-term results. Since LUMINEERS® do not require the removal of tooth structure, they can be removed if circumstances require it. Dr. Lori Kemmet, and her team provide visual consultations with anyone considering dental veneers, porcelain laminates, or LUMINEERS®. She offers these consultations at no charge.

Implants

While dental implants may not be thought of as a cosmetic procedure, they help us get to a final cosmetic result. So many people we see for cosmetic enhancement have a compromised or weak tooth or teeth. We like to give people the option to restore the compromised tooth, occasionally it is necessary to give the option to remove it and place an implant. However, there are so many places where you could have this sorted. One recommendation would be dental implants just as an example, however, there are others that you could use. Often one of the most compromised teeth is an upper front tooth. Front teeth are often injured as a child from accidents stemming from sports or falling. The upper front teeth often have root canals and posts. Both root canaled teeth and teeth with posts may be weaker than implanted teeth. It is very common for us to place implants and restore them in the front of the mouth. We would love to talk to you about your options for replacing compromised teeth. Bridges are still an option for replacing a missing tooth.
