Veneers are a great way to correct gaps, crooked, chipped, and/or stained teeth. They can also be used to permanently whiten your smile in cases where traditional whitening is not effective. Porcelain veneers are thin, porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Dr. Thompson offers “no prep” and “minimal prep” veneer types, as well as “traditional” veneers, and will discuss with you the different options for your specific situation that will deliver optimal esthetic results. Veneers take at least two (2) dental visits since they are custom fabricated in a dental lab.
Lumineers are just one of the types of veneers that Dr. Thompson provides, and can be a wonderful non-invasive way to dramatically improve your smile for certain patients. Lumineers are a type of “no prep” ultra-thin veneer, which means that your natural teeth stay completely intact.
