What are porcelain veneers used for?

Porcelain veneers can effectively address various dental imperfections, including discoloration, stains, chips, cracks, minor misalignments, and gaps between teeth. They can also improve the shape, size, and symmetry of teeth, resulting in a more harmonious and attractive smile. Good candidates for veneers are those who have healthy teeth, gums, and enamel but are unhappy with certain aspects of their smile that cannot be corrected with traditional whitening treatments or orthodontic procedures.

What does the process of getting veneers involve?

The process of getting porcelain veneers typically involves several steps. Firstly, during the initial consultation, Dr. Serrano assesses the patient’s oral health, discusses their goals, and determines if veneers are the appropriate solution. Then, the teeth are prepped by removing a small amount of enamel to accommodate the thickness of the veneers. Next, impressions of the teeth are taken and used to create the custom-made veneers. Once the veneers are fabricated, they are bonded to the teeth using a strong dental adhesive. Finally, any necessary adjustments are made to ensure a comfortable fit and natural-looking appearance.

Veneers vs. Lumineers®

Deciding between traditional veneers and Lumineers? The two options are very similar but have a few key differences. Traditional veneers require more preparation and enamel removal because they are thicker. They can also be designed to be very natural looking or very Hollywood-esque. Lumineers are thinner, require little to no prep, and tend to look natural. Not sure which is the right option for you? Our team would be happy to review your smile goals and help you decide the best cosmetic option for your unique smile.
