VENEERS & LUMINEERS
The technology and expertise of restorative cosmetic dentists, such as Dr. Hakan Kinaci, guarantee that you no longer need to be embarrassed by your teeth. You, too, can have the smile makeover that you desire – and within your budget! Giving your teeth evenness in sizing and a uniform appearance is within your reach, whether you have chipped teeth, persistent whitening issues, or other cosmetic needs.
A veneer usually refers to a thin porcelain veneer, and is a shell that will be bonded to your tooth. Porcelain veneers are durable as well as stain resistant, and need very little in the way of maintenance. Prior to the bonding, your tooth will likely need to be shaped to fit the veneer, which may require some shaving of the tooth. This is where the expertise of an experienced cosmetic dentist can make a difference, in the precision shaping and matching of the veneered tooth to your other teeth.
Lumineers® are a thinner shell and require minimal to none pre-shaping. Preparation time is greatly reduced, plus you can keep the original protective enamel on the tooth, which is usually lost when a tooth has to be shaved. Dr. Kinaci will be happy to discuss which treatment would be the best fit for your cosmetic needs and preferences. Veneer applications give your teeth a natural, bright appearance, and a smile you will be proud of!
