Porcelain veneers are specially designed, ultra-thin dental veneers, crafted to mimic the natural appearance of your tooth enamel. The ultra-thin design allows Lumineers to be bonded directly to the surface of your teeth without grinding down any of your original tooth structure. Your porcelain veneers are designed to feel comfortable and natural from the first moment they are bonded in place on your teeth.
You will need to schedule two visits with our dentist when receiving your porcelain veneers. These visits will take place over a two-week period. During your first visit, our dentist will create a mold of your teeth and will consult with you to determine the appropriate shade of white for your Lumineers. This mold will then be sent to the DenMat lab, where all Lumineers are created.
During your second visit with our dentist, your Lumineers will be carefully and painlessly bonded to your teeth. No shots or grinding will be necessary, meaning that your treatment will be comfortable and you will not experience any sensitivity following the procedure. This bonding process will take about an hour.

Teeth whitening is a simple, effective cosmetic dental treatment that we offer to noticeably enhance your smile in as little as one treatment. Our professional teeth whitening treatments utilize a powerful yet safe whitening gel that is applied to the surface of your teeth. This gel works to lighten the appearance of stains, discoloration and yellowing on the tooth enamel. Teeth whitening is often available in both in-office and take-home systems. Professional teeth whitening can give you a noticeably whiter smile that will boost your self-esteem and help you smile with pride.
If you have ever wished that your smile were whiter and brighter, teeth whitening might be right for you. Through professional teeth whitening, we can lighten staining and discoloration caused by various factors, such as:
- The natural aging process
- Poor dental hygiene habits
- Consumption of certain drinks and foods, including tea, wine, coffee and soda
- Smoking and other forms of tobacco use
- Certain medications
Our dentist will work with you to determine the right type of treatment and treatment length to achieve the smile aesthetic you desire. To learn more about professional teeth whitening and to set up your consultation at our office, please call us today.
