Veneers and Lumineers

Porcelain Veneers and Lumineers

There are many Dentists in Scottsdale, picking the right one for such an important procedure can be tricky. At Scottsdales Dentist we pride ourselves on only the best care possible. Scottsdales Dentist Dr. Millet has extensive experience in porcelain veneers, which are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile, and they have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility.

Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill, as well as attention to cosmetic detail. We place veneers routinely, and we design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile.

Will they look like normal teeth?

Yes, porcelain veneers are designed to look like real teeth – pearly white and slightly translucent. Except unlike real teeth, your ultra-thin, porcelain veneers in Chicago won’t yellow over time. As well as being virtually undetectable, porcelain veneers are highly resistant to coffee, tea, and even cigarette stains. They are the leading restorative option due to their strength, durability, and resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel.

How durable are porcelain veneers?

With proper care, your porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for well over a decade. Dr. Millet will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains, and bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.

Refraining from using your veneers as tools to open and cut things will prolong their lifespan. If accidental breakage or damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.

Why choose porcelain veneers?

Veneers are a great solution to minor cosmetic imperfections such as:

  • Slight crookedness
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Minor chips and fractures
  • Stains, or discoloration that doesn’t respond to tooth whitening
  • Teeth that look misshapen or too short

Lumineers

They may suggest Lumineers to transform your smile. Lumineers are ultra-thin, translucent shells that change tooth shape and size. This brand of veneers requires little or no tooth preparation, so no numbing is required, and you won’t need temporaries. The veneers can be removed if you ever want to return to your original smile. Lumineers aren’t right for everyone. Scottsdales Dentist Dr. Millet will discuss your needs, budget, and lifestyle to help you determine if Lumineers are the best choice for your smile.
