Dental Veneers and Lumineers

Dental Veneers | Lumineers

If you're looking to improve your smile, there are many reasons to choose dental veneers.  A veneer is a thin covering that is placed over the front (visible) part of the tooth.  Veneers can correct a wide range of dental issues, such as:

  • to lighten front teeth that can't be whitened by bleaching

  • to correct some cases of chipped or worn teeth

  • to fill in uneven spaces or a large gap between the upper front teeth, called a diastema
    (pronounced die-a-STEE-ma)

Composite and Ceramic Veneers


Veneers are made of either ceramic or composite resin material.  Your dentist will help you choose the material best for you based on strength, stain resistance, color and appearance.  Each type of veneer has its own benefits.

Ceramic veneers

A ceramic veneer is a thin shell custom-made to fit on the tooth.

Benefits of ceramic veneers:

  • strong and long lasting

  • smooth, translucent surface provides a natural appearance

  • doesn't stain easily

Composite resin veneers

A composite resin veneer is made from a tooth-colored filling material bonded onto the tooth.

Benefits of composite resin veneers:

  • may require removal of less tooth enamel than is necessary for ceramic veneers

  • may mean fewer visits to the dentist-sometimes these veneers take just one visit!

  • may cost less than ceramic veneers

  • are easy to replace if damaged; although composite veneers are generally not as strong or wear-resistant as ceramic veneers, composite veneers are easily and quickly repaired.

Enamel Shaping

A process of shaping, or contouring , natural teeth to improve their overall appearance.
