What are porcelain veneers?
Dental veneers are very thin shells that are bonded to the front part of the teeth. Our dental veneers at White Pearl Dentistry are made of strong, durable porcelain that is matched to your natural tooth color for a beautifully natural appearance. If you would prefer to whiten your smile, we can use a shade of porcelain that is slightly lighter than your natural tooth color.
What are Lumineers®?
Lumineers are a specific type of dental veneers that are made of a high-quality, ultra-thin resin material. Because Lumineers are extremely thin (about the same thickness as a contact lens), they are translucent just like your natural teeth and require little to no adjustment to your natural tooth structure. This means that your visits will involve no shots, no drilling, and no pain. Lumineers are very durable as well as aesthetic, and they can be a great, less-invasive alternative to traditional porcelain veneers.
Do I need porcelain veneers or Lumineers?
Porcelain veneers and Lumineers can be used to correct a number of cosmetic dental imperfections. Dr. Nadia Hamouda may recommend dental veneers and Lumineers in Ann Arbor, Michigan, to enhance your smile if it is flawed by:
- Very worn teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Spaces and gaps between teeth
