Lumineers for Minor Imperfections
Three of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures include Lumineers, porcelain veneers, and professional teeth whitening. Below, your local Battle Ground dentist points out the benefits of each.
You may have heard of Lumineers before. Digitally designed to perfectly fit your mouth, these ultra-thin dental enhancements can be applied in two easy visits. While they are about as thin as a contact lens, Lumineers are great choices for hiding minor imperfections, such as chips, cracks, gaps, stains or uneven lengths.
Unlike other veneers, Lumineers do not typically require a lot of drilling, shots, or temporary fronts. (In fact, they are considered pain-free, non-invasive cosmetic options!) Each composite Lumineer is bonded to the surface of your teeth individually, to ensure a truly natural look.
Porcelain Veneers for a Dazzling Smile
Porcelain veneers are another option. Like Lumineers, porcelain veneers are placed over the front of your natural teeth. Unlike Lumineers, however, they are a bit thicker. Additionally, porcelain veneers will require the removal of a layer of enamel from the front of your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are known for their durability, often lasting 10 to 30 years! They are easy to install – typically only requiring two visits. Porcelain veneers look as real as your natural teeth. They are a great fix for gaps, chips, intense discoloration, and much more. In fact, because porcelain does not easily stain, you do not have to worry about having a less-than-brilliant smile again.
Custom Teeth Whitening at Excel Dental
If discoloration is your biggest complaint, a custom, professional teeth whitening session may be all you need. Wouldn’t you get the same results with one of those kits at your local superstore? Not at all! At-home, over-the-counter teeth whitening kits are nowhere near as potent as professionally applied versions.
Custom teeth whitening can reach even those deep stains. When applied by a professional, they can address any discoloration variations that may occur to ensure the final result is a consistent, white. For more, you can have a beautiful white smile in just a single visit!
