At Bay Smile Dental, we are committed to help you attain, your picture perfect smile, whether it is with traditional veneers or lumineers.
Veneers are used to fix gaps, stains, chips on your teeth. No matter how unattractive, crooked, chipped, discolored or worn down your teeth are. Lumineers and traditional veneers are two easy ways to fix them and have, what is referred as “Hollywood Smile”.
Both procedures usually take just two visits. After the initial consultation, the first visit consists of any prep work that needs to be done. We take impressions and send them to the lab. With the traditional veneers, it may be necessary to wear temporaries until the permanent veneers arrive.
The second visit consists of fitting, attaching, and making sure the basic size, shape, and color are all correct, and that the patient is delighted with their new smile. Once the veneers are fitted, Dr. Harika trims, shapes and adjusts the traditional veneers or Lumineers. After a thorough cleaning, a composite resin is applied to the traditional veneers or Lumineers prior to permanently bonding them to the teeth.
Traditional Veneers have come a long way since first invented by Dr. Charles Pincus in the 1930’s in California to specifically accommodate the film industry to improve an actor’s smile. At the time, they were only available to the film industry as a very temporary and quite unreliable solution. Since then, traditional veneers have evolved into a beautiful, permanent, thin shell of porcelain. Traditional veneers can be shaped to be the perfect replacement for your teeth, and can be more natural looking and less bulky than Lumineers.
