Veneers Made Easy

by | Oct 22, 2014 | Blog

When it comes to improving a smile, we often turn to cosmetic dental work. Here at Smile Glen Ellyn, we have amazing cosmetic procedures that take your mediocre smile and turn it into something stellar. One of our most popular procedures is to use veneers to improve the look of your smile, but this procedure just got a whole lot easier with the use of Lumineers.

Traditional veneers are porcelain shells that fit on the fronts of your teeth. In order to place them correctly, we need to first remove a layer of enamel from your teeth. This creates room for the veneers as well as prepares the tooth for the bonding material. However, not all patients want their teeth to be adjusted in this way. That’s where Lumineers step in and save the day!

The Lumineer Difference

Rather than trimming your teeth, we can place Lumineers without any preparation! They are sometimes called prepless veneers because your teeth can stay just as they are! This does two things. First of all, it maintains the integrity of your teeth. Secondly, it allows you to reverse your cosmetic work, if you would ever choose to do so. You still get the same amazing look of veneers without putting your teeth at risk.

If you would like to know more about the cosmetic procedures available to you and your smile, just let us know. We would be happy to sit down with you at a consultation to discuss options. Contact us today to set up that consultation. We can’t wait to help you improve your smile!
