What They Can Do

Porcelain veneers fix a wide range of dental issues:

  • Stains
  • Discoloration
  • Yellow tint
  • Chips
  • Worn edges
  • Undesirable shape
  • Undesirable length

They are capable of addressing so many problems because they work by concealing the entire front surface of the tooth. Essentially a new, flawless tooth surface is created when the veneer is placed over the tooth. 

Lumineers®: What Are They?

Lumineers® are a specific brand of veneers. They are different in terms of their thinness. They require less preparation of your teeth because they don't need as much room to fit over the surface. Lumineers® can typically be placed in a shorter amount of time and are often reversible, if you decide you no longer want veneers at some point. They are often less expensive than other porcelain veneers; however, some patients like the natural, flawless appearance of conventional porcelain veneers. Ask our dentists for before and after images of other patients, so that you can get an idea of the differences between the two options.

Issues of Cost

Porcelain veneers and Lumineers® are not cheap options. These valuable restorations do come at a cost that you are probably eager to know. We can't quote exact numbers here because the final price is variable, particularly depending on what needs to be done to accomplish your smile goals.

When you visit us for your initial consultation, you'll meet with the dentist. They will examine your teeth and mouth, and listen to you describe what you would like to change. Once they have explained their recommendations for veneers or other treatments, our office will provide you with a cost estimate.
