Our practice offers porcelain veneers and Lumineers to meet your unique cosmetic needs.
Lumineers are a non-invasive alternative to traditional porcelain veneers. Enjoy permanent white results without having to endure a lengthy or uncomfortable procedure. Get the smile you deserve with Lumineers in two quick and easy dentist visits. They are non-permanent.
On average, you can expect the process of getting your porcelain veneers to take 3-4 weeks. You’ll visit our office 2-3 times during this time, from your initial consultation to the final fitting and application. Because composite resin veneers can be applied directly to the tooth’s surface and sculpted in place, you can typically receive this type of veneer in just one visit.
Generally, no. Patients who receive 2-4 veneers typically experience no discomfort. However, patients who receive eight or more veneers may experience some sensitivity or tenderness in the gums. Your dentist will take every precaution during your veneer preparation and administer local anesthetic as needed to ensure your comfort.
The lifespan of your veneer depends on the type you choose, and your veneers will eventually need to be repaired or replaced just like any other dental work. Porcelain veneers typically last 10-15 years. Lumineers are known to last as long as porcelain veneers with good at-home care and regular cleanings.
