An Ideal Way to Hide Smile Zone Flaws

Teeth in your smile zone play an important role in your appearance, so any defect in color, shape or alignment can negatively impact your smile aesthetics and self-esteem. Although restorations with composite fillings provide a cost-effective option for many patients, discoloration and a high risk of recurrent decay can cause issues down the road. Dental crowns offer full tooth coverage and better retention and aesthetics than composite fillings, but they do require removal of sound tooth structure. While the first porcelain veneers were invented in the late 1920s, ongoing advances in dental technology in the last few decades have made them a popular option for restoring smile beauty without the need for invasive work. Lumineers® are a newer option custom made exclusively by the DenMat Lab in Lompoc, CA by technicians that specialize in crafting aesthetic dental veneers. Whether you select Lumineers or porcelain veneers in Hialeah, FL, you’ll achieve a red-carpet-worthy smile that’s easy to maintain!

Who Qualifies for Dental Veneers?

As a cosmetic dentistry treatment, veneers aren’t meant to resolve functional issues with teeth, such as a malocclusion (bad bite). Porcelain veneers are effective for restoring a bright white appearance to discolored teeth that are resistant to professional whitening or teeth with other minor flaws. In order to qualify for veneers, your gums need to be healthy. Lumineers or porcelain veneers in Hialeah, FL are an optimal solution for resolving the following tooth issues:

Porcelain Veneers vs. Lumineers®

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that measure about 0.5mm in thickness. The process requires tooth preparation and a local anesthetic and/or sedation to minimize sensitivity and pain, as well as placement of acrylic temporaries. For traditional porcelain veneers, you need to have a sufficient amount of healthy tooth enamel, because a thin layer of enamel is removed. Lumineers are digitally designed to be ultra-thin at just 0.3mm (about the thickness of a contact lens), which enables seamless application over your natural teeth without removal of tooth enamel. Unlike porcelain veneers, Lumineers are reversible, so you have nothing to lose and a beautiful smile to gain.

Our Custom Treatment Process

When you visit Progressive Dental Office Cosmetic and Implant Center for veneers, our cosmetic dentist Dr. Edek Gonzalez will discuss your smile goals, then determine if porcelain veneers or Lumineers will be the best option to restore your smile beauty. Customized porcelain veneers are created at our on-site lab by our highly skilled lab technician to blend in beautifully with your other teeth in terms of color, shape and translucence, while Lumineers are artistically crafted at a specialized dental lab. When you choose our practice to beautify your smile, you’ll be able to get a sneak preview of the expected results with Digital Smile Design. With both options, veneers will provide the harmonious, balanced and naturally gorgeous smile you’ve long dreamed of achieving!
We take digital impressions to analyze your teeth, gum line and facial aesthetics in order to create the perfect color, shape and size for your veneers. If you’re getting porcelain veneers, we prepare your teeth by removing 0.3-0.5 mm of enamel, in order to enable the veneers to lay flat in line with your gum tissue. You’ll wear temporary veneers crafted from natural-looking resin called polymethyl methacrylate (or PMMA) until your permanent porcelain veneers are ready. If any adjustments are required, these are done prior to permanently bonding the final veneers to your teeth. Although veneers don’t stain like natural teeth, you’ll still need to brush and floss twice a day and avoid grinding or clenching your teeth. If needed, we offer third-party financing to help make the veneers cost in Hialeah, FL more affordable.
