Dental Veneers – A Less Invasive Way to Improve Your Smile

If you have been hiding your smile because of tooth flaws or imperfections, you may want to consider dental veneers. These aesthetic restorations offer a minimally invasive solution to transform your smile with beautifully natural results. We invite you to visit Afton Dental to get started today! 

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, custom restorations that cover the front surfaces of your teeth to mask flaws or imperfections. They are usually made of porcelain, a strong and durable material that can match the color and texture of your natural tooth enamel. Dental veneers can improve the color, shape, size, and overall appearance of your teeth, delivering flawless smiles. 

Here are some reasons Dr. Hill may recommend dental veneers: 

  • To cover severely stained or discolored teeth that do respond to traditional whitening treatments
  • To repair chipped or fractured teeth, restoring their strength and natural appearance
  • To protect eroded or damaged tooth enamel
  • To improve the appearance of misshapen or otherwise flawed teeth. 
  • To restore teeth that are severely worn due to grinding and clenching, a condition known as bruxism. 
  • To close small gaps or even out spacing between teeth
  • To correct minor tooth misalignment
  • To create a more even, symmetrical smile

We Are Also Proud to Offer Lumineers!

We proudly offer Lumineers as an alternative to traditional porcelain veneers. These aesthetic restorations are as thin as contact lenses, so they require no dental anesthesia and little to no tooth reduction. That’s why they are often referred to as “no-drill veneers.” Cerinate, the company that creates Lumineers, offers a five-year warranty on their ultra-thin veneers, with clinical trials showing that these aesthetic restorations can last up to 20 years with proper care.

Veneers or Lumineers – Which One is Right for You? 

Traditional porcelain veneers and Lumineers both offer an excellent solution to correct a range of cosmetic concerns, delivering beautiful, uniform smiles. Dr. Hill will help you determine the type of restoration best suited to your unique needs and personal preferences. To learn more about both cosmetic dentistry options, contact Afton Dental today!

Caring for Porcelain Veneers or Lumineers

Porcelain veneers and Lumineers require oral hygiene care like your natural teeth. Make sure to brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a non-abrasive toothpaste and floss daily to keep dental disease at bay. Avoid biting down on hard objects or chewing on pen caps to prevent damage to your restoration or natural tooth enamel. If you grind or clench your teeth in your sleep, Dr. Hill may recommend a custom night guard to safeguard your restorations and your smile. 

It is also important to keep up with your regular, twice-yearly dental exams and cleanings. Dr. Hill and his team will monitor your oral health and restorations to ensure they remain healthy and sound. With proper care, your veneers or Lumineers will enhance your smile for many years to come!
