The Many Advantages of Dental Veneers
Veneers and Lumineers provide a host of improvements to your smile. Because Dr. Barriere crafts each set of veneers or Lumineers to match your teeth and skin tone, as well as your other facial features, you get a dramatic improvement in your smile … without the need for surgery! And because you can get these dental treatments in as few as two visits, you don’t need to worry about provisional replacements or wait for results, as you would with orthodontic treatment.
Your Custom Treatment Process
Treatment with porcelain veneers and Lumineers is a highly customized process. They have to hide problem teeth and fit naturally with the rest of your mouth. During your first appointment, Dr. Barriere will remove a few millimeters of the enamel that covers your problem teeth. This ensures a good fit. Then, he takes detailed digital scans of your mouth using an intraoral scanner. These scans are used to customize your veneers or Lumineers to the shape, size and color that are perfect for you.
When the restorations are finished, you’ll return to our cosmetic dentistry office in Los Angeles, CA for a second appointment. At this appointment, Dr. Barriere will verify the final fit of your veneers or Lumineers and bond them to your teeth. With veneers and Lumineers, you don’t need to follow any special maintenance, you just take care of them as you would your natural teeth. These cosmetic solutions will resist staining, but it’s still important to keep them clean and free of debris by brushing and flossing daily. The long-lasting result of your smile makeover will complement your lips and gums as well as your skin tone to provide lasting results and your dream smile.
