The Perfect Veneer: The The Perfect Veneer: The Lumineers

LumineersLumineers isn’t just the name of a popular folk/indie band. In fact, Lumineers is actually the name of a popular brand of porcelain veneers that we at Lerner & Lemongello like to use. If your teeth have started to decay, if they are severely discolored, or if they are simply misaligned, you may want to consider getting veneers. By giving you a near permanent solution to your cosmetic dental problems, Lumineers will help you gain your confidence back once again. Read on to learn more.

Why Lumineers?
There are a variety of different veneer options available on the market. And although we do encourage some of our patients to try different brands, Lumineers are one of our go-to options due to their thin, yet strong, texture. Additionally, because of their thin texture, Lumineers look more natural than other brands of veneers because they take on a more natural looking enamel coloring.

Who Are Good Candidates?
Just as with any sort of cosmetic dental procedure, not everyone will be deemed a good candidate. However, if you suffer from the following problems or issues, then you will likely be a good candidate for Lumineers:

  • Stained or discolored teeth that reject whitening products
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Small teeth
  • Misshapen Teeth

How Does It Work?
Unlike dental treatments such as dental implants, veneers are glued onto your existing teeth. During your initial consultation with Lerner & Lemongello, you will be fitted for dental veneers. The great thing about Lumineers dental veneers is that they are available in different sizes, shapes, and colors— so that they blend in with your other teeth. As the first step in the process, your natural teeth will be filed down so that they are significantly smaller. Once they have been filed down, the dental veneer will be placed on top of your natural tooth and will be glued down. The process is then repeated until you have your perfect, new smile.

If you have been considering getting dental veneers, consider Lumineers! To learn more or to schedule your consultation appointment, contact Lerner & Lemongello today!

Porcelain Veneers And Your Most Beautiful Smile, Ever!

There’s nothing like the absolute confidence to smile. You feel good about greeting the world and your best self shines through. But if your smile is less than perfect, you may want to consider a cosmetic dental procedure. Cosmetic dentistry is more popular than ever. Patients who have never considered cosmetic or elective dental procedures are visiting or office seeking to enhance or improve their smile.

There are a wide variety of cosmetic dental options available depending on your budget and time commitment. Basic teeth whitening can make a dramatic difference in the quality of your smile. It is also one of the most inexpensive professional cosmetic services available.
porcelain veneersFor those with a greater need for improvement, porcelain veneers may be the perfect solution.

• Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are used to re-create the natural look of teeth, while providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel.
• Porcelain is the veneer material of choice for those who need to make slight position adjustments or changes in tooth shape, size and/or color.
• A tiny amount of tooth enamel must be removed before the application of the veneer to create room for the porcelain veneer to fit inside the mouth, restore natural tooth function and create an even better appearance than the original tooth.
• Porcelain veneers are a good option for gaps between teeth, fractured teeth, bite-related problems and when the original teeth have poor color, shape, and contours.
• Sometimes superficial stains do not respond well to whitening or bleaching so a porcelain veneer may be the best option.

Veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, making it almost impossible to tell the difference between a natural tooth and a veneer. Unlike natural teeth, custom-made veneers resist coffee and tea stains because they are made of high-tech materials.

Our patients love the impressive results we create for them with porcelain veneers.
The new year is the perfect time for you to invest in the future of your smile.

How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?

Veneers are a significant investment in the future of your smile. These thin, shell-like dental devices are custom made to cover each of your teeth – correcting their shape, size, texture, color and projection. For those patients willing to make this investment, the dramatic results are well worth the cost. After receiving porcelain veneers you will appear to have a completely different and brand new smile.

veneersDue to the expense involved, one of the most common questions we are asked before treatment is, “How long do veneers last?” Porcelain veneers are effective and long-lasting treatment. However, porcelain veneers are not permanent.

When properly constructed, adhered and maintained – your porcelain veneers should last between 10-15 years. Some patients report results that last as long as 20 years. Just like your natural tooth enamel – the beauty of your veneers are heavily dependent on your at home oral care and habits.

It is important to do the following to maintain the life of your porcelain veneers:

  • Visit your dentist twice a year for preventative care and maintenance.
  • Brush and floss your teeth after each meal.
  • Limit acidic beverages and even those that stain such as coffee, cola and tea.
  • Do not use tobacco.

If your veneers need to be replaced due to damage, staining or age they can be easily replaced. Your veneers can be individually replaced or as an entire set. If you have received porcelain veneers and are concerned that it is time to replace one or many of them – contact Lerner & Lemongello for a consultation today.

The Advantages of Porcelain Over Ceramic Veneers

Veneers are thin porcelain or ceramic shells that fit directly to the front of your teeth, completely changing their appearance. Veneers are typically offered in either ceramic or porcelain finishes. We have found that many of our patients prefer porcelain veneers to their ceramic counterparts.

Porcelain veneers offer supreme results. Their finish can be sculpted into any shape, size or contour. Porcelain veneers can also made to match any color – creating very natural looking results that resist staining for years.

shutterstock_247103614Veneers are a viable option in situations where the original tooth structure has been damaged beyond repair, or no longer responding to conventional restoration methods, or just in need of a little improvement in appearance.

Veneers can be used to correct:

  • Discolored teeth.
  • Teeth that have become excessively worn down.
  • Cracked, chipped, or broken teeth.
  • Irregularly shaped teeth.

With diligent at home care and regular dental check ups your porcelain veneers are long lasting – with a beautiful finish that lasts 10-15 years. Contact our office to learn more today.
