Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic slices that bond to your teeth to reshape and restructure them. Porcelain veneers are not only durable but also have lifelike aesthetics. At Pro Smiles OC, we use them for fixing smiles that have stains, chips, cracks or significant gaps between them. But veneers require preparation of the damaged teeth before their attachment, a process in which we remove a thin layer of the dental enamel to create space. For many patients, sacrificing a segment of their healthy tooth structure for bonding veneers is unacceptable.
Many patients avoid getting veneers for smile restoration just because they do not want to sacrifice their natural tooth structure. If the prospect of undergoing tooth preparation has stopped you in the past from getting veneers, then we recommend Lumineers®. These fantastic “prepless” veneers can quickly and effortlessly transform an imperfect smile into a picture-perfect, lasting smile in just a few days.
