Discover how porcelain veneers or lumineers can add vibrance to your smile while improving your oral health by reading our helpful guide featured below.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin, transparent ceramic shells that are directly bonded to your teeth for a flawless finish. Your veneers are custom-created to improve the shape, color, and length of your natural teeth. This cosmetic dental treatment will seamlessly blend in with your surrounding smile, allowing you to smile with confidence once again.

We often recommend porcelain veneers for patients looking to fix any of the following dental issues:

  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Crooked or misshapen teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are very well known for brightening your smile, but they also offer a wide variety of other benefits, including:

  • Completed in as little as two appointments
  • A fast, painless procedure
  • Customized for you
  • No harsh changes to your natural teeth
  • Can last as long as 15 years
  • Easy to care for
  • Stain-resistant

Our Porcelain Veneers Process

The porcelain process can be completed in as little as two appointments to our Willoughby Hills dental office. The first step in achieving your smile goals starts with an initial consultation with Dr. Wallace or Dr. Stern, where we’ll assess your mouth for any underlying dental problems. After any issues have been resolved, we’ll take highly detailed impressions of your mouth to ensure perfectly crafted veneers for your smile. 

When your porcelain veneers are ready, you’ll return to our dental office so we can place them. During this appointment, your dentist will gently remove a minuscule amount of enamel from your teeth to make room for the veneers. Then, your veneers will be bonded to your teeth with a dental resin that hardens with the use of a special light. 

Once applied, your dentist will double-check that your veneers fit and look perfectly before solidifying the bond. Then, you’ll walk out of our office ready to show the world your new, vibrant smile with nothing but confidence.

What Are Lumineers?

If porcelain veneers don’t seem like the perfect match for your dental needs, Dr. Wallace and Dr. Stern offer lumineers as an alternative. Lumineers are ultra-thin and can be applied without removing any of your tooth’s enamel, preserving its natural structure. Our lumineers also eliminate the need for drilling, shots, or temporary acrylics, allowing you to show off your new smile right away. 

Some of the top reasons why patients choose lumineers as their cosmetic dental treatment include:

  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Unwanted gaps or uneven spacing
  • Misshaped or too short of teeth
  • Aged dental work, such as a crown or bridge
  • A smile that’s not quite to your liking

The Lumineers Process

Receiving your Luminners is a quick, easy, and painless procedure. After just two appointments, you’ll be proudly showing off your new, flawless smile. You’ll experience the following during the lumineers procedure:

  1. Initial Consultation: At your first appointment, Dr. Wallace or Dr. Stern will take detailed impressions of your teeth to ensure a perfect fit as well as determine which shade of white your lumineers will be. Then, we’ll send those impressions to the dental lab where your custom lumineers will be created. 
  2. Placing the Lumineers: Once your lumineers are created, typically in about two weeks, you’ll return to our Willoughby Hills office to complete the treatment. Dr. Wallace or Dr. Stern will carefully and painlessly bond the lumineers to your teeth. Once they’re set in place, you’re ready to show off your new, flawless smile.
