veneersPorcelain Veneers and Lumineers® by Cerinate®
These popular restorative-dentistry options are made of thin, durable and stain resistant porcelain. They can perfect your smile by masking deep stains, hiding cracks and chips, correcting worn down or misaligned teeth and creating uniformity.
Traditional porcelain veneers are custom-shaped wafer thin laminates permanently bonded to teeth to correct your smile. These veneers can also be used to close unsightly gaps and straighten and lengthen teeth to improve bite position. Unlike a crown, which covers the entire tooth, a porcelain veneer covers only the visible portion of the tooth. Much of the natural tooth structure remains in place since only a thin layer of tooth is buffed to allow for the thickness of the veneer.
At our office, using Cerec 3-D, you can have your porcelain veneer in a 1 – 1 1/2 hour appointment per tooth. This means that Dr. Stender can create a new smile for you in a single morning or afternoon. There is no need for the traditional impressions, lab work or a 7 to 10 day waiting period while wearing temporaries.
Lumineers ® are made of patented Cerinate ® porcelain that is contact-lens thin. They are a noninvasive and comfortable process to transform and correct teeth. Their advantage is that they are placed directly over existing teeth with no removal of tooth structure. Unlike traditional porcelain veneers, Lumineers ® can be removed if desired.
Both options provide natural and long lasting results. However, choosing the option best suited to your needs depends on your dental history, overall health and desired results.
