Dental veneers are thin, porcelain, tooth-shaped “shells” that fit over your natural teeth and transform the appearance of your smile. Whether you are looking to improve the appearance of a single tooth or your entire smile, veneers are a quick and easy way to achieve the look you want. Each veneer is made from porcelain or composite, both of which are highly durable and can protect your teeth from further damage. Porcelain is also stain-resistant, which means you do not have to worry about your new teeth becoming dull or stained over time.
If you are interested in improving your smile with dental veneers, it is important to set up a consultation with your dentist. At Exceptional Dentistry, Dr. James Powell will evaluate your smile, discuss your goals, and determine whether veneers are a good fit. Should you decide to proceed with a dental veneers procedure, your treatment can be complete in just two visits! In the first visit, our dentist will take an impression of your smile and determine the size, shape, and color for your veneers. Our dentist may also wear down part of your natural tooth enamel in preparation to placing your veneers. The impression and specifications are then custom-made to fit your needs. During the second appointment, our dentist will ensure that your veneers fit properly, then adhere them to the outer surface of your teeth.
Once you have completed your veneer treatment, you can continue your oral hygiene routine as normal, brushing your veneers and flossing between your teeth. Dental veneers are made to withstand the normal pressures and function of natural teeth, and they can keep your smiling looking great for many years!
Lumineers® is a unique brand of dental veneers that offers a less-invasive treatment than traditional veneers. Lumineers are made and function just like traditional veneers, but they are ultra-thin, which eliminates the need to wear down your enamel before applying the veneers. This also means there are no shots, and your treatment is completely reversible! Lumineers are also ultra-durable, sometimes lasting 25 years or more. Dr. James Powell has received the specialized training required to perform a Lumineers treatment, so you can rest assured that your smile is in good hands.
Whether you choose to receive traditional dental veneers or specialized Lumineers, our dentist and team can improve the look of your smile in just two appointments, providing you with a beautiful, natural-looking smile that you love!
