Over time teeth can become chipped, worn down, and crooked. When this happens, our dentist may recommend dental veneers for you. Veneers are a thin shell of either ceramic or porcelain designed to fit onto the front side of your teeth and give your smile the boost it needs. An added benefit to veneers is that our dentist will custom fit each veneer to your smile so that the procedure will be nearly undetectable.
How do veneers work?
If you are interested in veneers to improve your smile, you will meet with Dr. Ryan P. Lehmkuhler for your initial consultation. Here you will discuss what steps to take in order to get the smile you desire. With traditional veneers, a small layer of your tooth enamel will be stripped from your tooth in order to make room for the veneer. Because the enamel is removed, the process is typically irreversible. However, here at First Dental, we use cutting-edge technology to provide you with Lumineers®, an ultra-thin style of veneer that requires little if any tooth enamel removal without compromising strength and durability.
Lumineers® Porcelain Veneers
Lumineers are significantly thinner than traditional veneers, and they are designed to be applied without removing any of the original tooth enamel. Because of this, the veneer process at First Dental is virtually pain free, significantly quicker, and does not require any of the shots or anesthesia that come with traditional veneers.
