Porcelain Veneers, Lumineers, & DURAthins
Do you want a straighter smile, but you just can't see yourself wearing metal braces? Veneers are a modern alternative to traditional orthodontic braces. Made from thin sheaths of porcelain that cover existing teeth, veneers mask stains, chips, gaps, and misalignments.
The veneer process takes about two office visits, one to design your custom smile and one to adhere the veneers to your teeth. To place porcelain veneers, Dr. Beck must first remove a small amount of natural tooth enamel. This ensures that the veneers will lie flat and appear completely natural. Once porcelain veneers are secured, they can last up to 20 years!
If you dislike the idea of tooth reduction but would still like a stunning smile, Lumineers or DURAthin Veneers may be right for you. Lumineers and DURAthin Veneers are brands of no-prep veneers. No-prep porcelain is thinner than traditional veneer porcelain but still durable enough to withstand daily wear and tear.
Dr. Beck or Dr. Hart will secure Lumineers or DURAthin Veneers directly on top of your teeth to cover imperfections. If you desire, you can return to your natural smile in the future, because your original tooth structure will remain. Lumineers and DURAthins aren't right for every patient, but as your cosmetic dentist, Dr. Beck will assess your case, consult you about your goals, and then recommend the best, most natural-looking option.
