Perfecting Smiles with Porcelain Veneers & Lumineers in Columbus
Many patients want a brighter, cleaner, more attractive smile but have chipped, stained, discolored, unevenly spaced, or even slightly crooked front teeth. If this sounds like you, Columbus, OH area dentist, Dr. Mick, will be glad to evaluate your situation, listen to the exact changes you have in mind, and talk to you about how porcelain veneers can help. Often, this service can provide you with a completely improved and dazzling smile in just a few appointments.
Veneers and Lumineers alike are carefully crafted from durable dental porcelain and affixed to the front of your smile, hiding your stained, chipped, cracked, or uneven teeth and creating the appearance of a whiter, straighter smile. In most cases, the complete veneers or Lumineers procedure can be completed in two visits.
Porcelain Veneers Preparation
What sets these two services apart is the amount of preparation involved. Before placing your veneers, Dr. Mick must remove a certain amount of surface material from the front of your smile. Doing this will ensure that your veneers lay flat and look natural. Lumineers, on the other hand, are ultra-thin and require little, if any, modification to your smile. That means treatment with Lumineers is reversible—if you decide later on that you want to return to your natural smile, we can do that. Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, are permanent.
