When you look in the mirror and smile, what do you see? Are you happy with the shape, alignment and color of your smile? Many people are not and wish they could magically transform their teeth to be whiter, straighter and even like those they see on the covers of magazines. The good news is that you can have a Hollywood smile and it does not take a magic spell – come see us at Court Square Dentistry to learn about porcelain veneers.
Many of those actors, models and celebrities with perfect smiles were not born with those teeth. Dental veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment that have been used in the entertainment industry for decades to quickly cover gapped, crooked or discolored teeth of the rich and famous. Now veneers are commonly used by anyone looking to change the appearance of their smile, giving them a camera-ready smile in as little as one or two visits to our office in Long Island City.
Cosmetic Dental Veneers – Lumineers
Cosmetic dental veneers are what have been used for many years to transform smiles. They are thin shells of porcelain that are shaped to cover your teeth and reflect the perfect smile you desire. To adhere these cosmetic covers, a small amount of tooth is removed to make room for these shells to be adhered permanently to your teeth. However, they are not the only option available.
Lumineers are a type of dental porcelain veneer that is much thinner than the traditional veneer. These wafer thin shells are similar in thickness to a contact lenses; just barely a wisp of porcelain. The advantage of Lumineers is there is no need for the prep-work of regular veneers. They are so thin that they can be adhered directly to the teeth without any removal. However, they are mainly used to cover minor flaws and color imperfections while dental veneers can hide more prominent issues.
