Veneers & Lumineers
If you are uncomfortable with your smile due to stains, minor chips, misshapen teeth, gaps, or other cosmetic issues, veneers or Lumineers from Dr. Guldalian at Nova Dental can enhance your smile. In just a few appointments, Dr. Guldalian can use veneers and Lumineers to completely cover imperfections in your smile and restore tooth shape, color, and spacing.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are very small, wafer-thin dental prosthetics designed to fit over your existing teeth and replace the front chewing surfaces. By doing so, veneers can cover up almost any cosmetic flaw and ensure that you have a bright, white, and beautiful smile.
What to Expect
The Veneer Placement Process
The veneers placement process typically takes just two appointments. At your first appointment, your teeth will be cleaned and numbed. Then a very thin layer of enamel will be removed from any teeth that will be receiving veneers. This enamel is removed to ensure that your veneers will fit seamlessly and look natural.
Next, impressions and images of your teeth will be taken. Dr. Guldalian will collaborate with a third-party dental lab and use this information to create a set of custom veneers that will look and feel just like natural teeth. This usually takes 2-3 weeks, so you will be sent home with a set of temporary veneers in the meantime.
Once your veneers have arrived at Nova Dental, Dr. Guldalian will check them for fit, and make sure they are absolutely perfect. Then, the veneers will be permanently attached to your teeth using special dental cement. You’ll leave our office with a beautifully restored smile!
The Difference Between Veneers & Lumineers
Lumineers are a special type of porcelain veneers. Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers are extremely thin, often about the thickness of a contact lens. This means that Lumineers can be placed on your teeth without requiring the removal of any enamel during the preparation process. This also means that, unlike a traditional set of porcelain veneers, Lumineers are reversible. If desired, they can be removed without any negative effects. Lumineers are ideal for patients who don’t like the idea of permanent veneers, or who are nervous about having enamel removed during the process.
