Veneers are thin, custom-made porcelain shells applied to the fronts of your teeth to create a beautiful smile. The team at Sun-Park Dental uses veneers to cover a variety of dental imperfections, including chips, gaps, staining, and unevenly shaped or sized teeth. Veneers are relatively quick to apply and are minimally invasive.
Veneers are popular cosmetic dental treatments because they provide a natural-looking smile with a minimally invasive procedure. Veneers are also resistant to staining and decay. They are custom-shaped and tinted so you can have the smile you’ve always wanted.
Lumineers is the brand name for a lighter and even less invasive version of dental veneers. Lumineers are even thinner porcelain shells that cover the fronts of your teeth. Many people prefer Lumineers because they require less tooth preparation before the custom shells are bonded to your teeth. Lumineers are virtually painless to install and can last for up to 20 years with proper care.
Dental veneers are typically installed in two appointments. During your first appointment, your dentist prepares your teeth by removing a thin layer of tooth enamel to make room for your veneers to fit flush against your teeth for a natural appearance. If you’re having Lumineers, your dentist removes less enamel, or may not remove any at all.
Then, molds are made of your teeth. A dental lab uses these to custom-make your veneers to fit your teeth precisely.
At your second appointment, your dentist fits your veneers and checks your bite before permanently bonding the veneers to your teeth. Once the veneers have bonded to your teeth, your dentist polishes them until they shine like your natural teeth.
You take care of your veneers just like you take care of your natural teeth. Follow the ADA recommendations and brush twice a day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and floss at least once a day. You also need to continue to have routine dental check-ups and professional cleanings. While your veneers aren’t going to stain or decay, your dentist still needs to take care of your natural teeth and overall dental health.
