He’ll create your dream smile in as few as two appointments with porcelain veneers or Lumineers!
Candidates for Porcelain Veneers or Lumineers
Virtually all patients with cosmetic problems are candidates for dental veneers or Lumineers if they are in good oral health. While these cosmetic treatments aren’t meant to resolve functional teeth issues such as a bad bite (malocclusion), they can be a great option if you have any of the following issues in your smile zone:
Porcelain Veneers vs. Lumineers
Porcelain veneers and Lumineers are cosmetic treatments that can completely transform your smile. When teeth are misshapen, cracked, uneven, or stained, porcelain veneers are a long-term solution for the perfect teeth patients search for. These super thin shells fit seamlessly over your teeth, with a shine, shade, and finish that looks so natural the only thing anyone will notice is your beautiful smile. While both options can hide dental flaws like chips, gaps, discoloration or crookedness, each treatment has unique advantages and disadvantages, as outlined below:
Our Custom Treatment Process
Whether you decide to get porcelain veneers or Lumineers, Dr. Blank will personalize your treatment plan to fit your unique needs. At Blank Dental Group, our cosmetic dentistry team will walk you through the pros and cons of each option in great detail, so you will be well-informed and able to make the best decision to suit your smile goals.
Veneers are designed to hide problem teeth while providing the appearance of a new smile that looks and feels completely natural. If porcelain veneers are the best option for you, we will plan out your treatment during your initial consultation. In preparation for your veneers, our cosmetic dentist will remove a few millimeters of your tooth’s front surface enamel during your first appointment. This will ensure that your custom dental veneers fit naturally and comfortably over your existing teeth. Next, we’ll take impressions of your modified teeth, which will be used to hand-design your veneers to the ideal size, shape and color for a beautiful new smile.
When these restorations are ready, you’ll return to one of our cosmetic dentistry practices in Columbus, Hilliard, Powell or Springfield, OH, whichever location is most convenient for you. During your second appointment, we’ll verify the final fit of your veneers, then bond them securely to your teeth. You won’t need to complete any special maintenance with veneers, and though they won’t stain as natural teeth do, you should continue brushing and flossing each day. The long-lasting result of your smile makeover is a series of dental veneers that complement your gum and lip line, facial features and skin tone! In short, you’ll have the smile of your dreams, and one that will last you for many years to come.
