Learn More About Porcelain Veneers
Lumineers are very similar to porcelain veneers, and they are able to deliver the same beautiful results, but there is one main difference: Lumineers are fitted onto the teeth as is. With porcelain veneers, a small amount of enamel has to be removed in order for them to lay flat, but Lumineers are so thin that this step isn’t necessary. This makes them the ideal treatment for someone looking to get big results in the least amount of time.
We’re often tasked with repairing teeth that show prominently in the smile, and to make sure we do it in a way that doesn’t compromise a patient’s appearance, we only use natural-looking all-ceramic restorations. Dental ceramic is strong, durable, and can be shaped and shaded to perfectly mimic real enamel in every way. Using this material and their artistic eye, our dentists can create a restoration so lifelike that even a patient will have trouble telling it apart from their natural teeth!
Want to make your smile look dramatically better in less than an hour? With direct bonding, we can take care of minor stains, chips, and gaps in a flash.

Afterward, you can expect the results to last for about 10 years. This is one of the fastest and most affordable treatments we offer, and even better, it’s completely painless as well!
