The Many Uses Of Dental Veneers
Dr. Ryan Shepherd on Dental Veneers at Uptown Dental Associates in Albuquerque, NM Read Transcript
We offer two different types of veneers in the office one are traditional veneers where we actually have to prep and shape the teeth a bit. The more popular type of veneer for our patients are Lumineers which are a specific type of veneer that is very, very thin so that we don't actually hardly have to grind on the teeth at all. Those are contact lens thin and Megan bonded onto the tooth which makes them incredibly strong and incredibly life-like. They really make for beautiful restorations on our patients. Not everybody is a candidate for that but for those that are, it's a wonderful solution. In order to do veneers on your teeth, really, first, we have to make sure that the mouth is healthy. Once the mouth is healthy and were certain that there isn't any decay in the mouth with periodontal disease present then we can look at those fun cosmetic aspects of it and for all patients one of those two options will work.
- Minor chips and cracks
- Small gaps in your smile
- Misshapen teeth
- Stains and discoloration
- Slightly crooked teeth
Many of our patients even choose to have dental veneers placed on all the teeth that show while smiling for a stunning new smile!
Your Dental Veneers Options
We like to give our patients choices at Uptown Dental Associates. That’s why we offer four different varieties of dental veneers.
- Because Lumineers are ultra-thin – about as thin as a contact lens – they require less prep of your natural teeth than other options and can typically be applied in as little as two visits!
- All-ceramic e.max dental veneer is also a great option for improving your pearly whites!
- Our patients also love the option of all-porcelain dental veneers because they glisten just like natural tooth structure!
- If maintaining all of your natural tooth structure or being able to reverse the process is a priority for you, we even offer prepless dental veneers in Uptown Dental Associates!
Your Comfort Is Our Priority
