Which type of dental veneer is right for you? | Creekside Dentistry

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

One of the many options available to dental patients who desire a cosmetic change to their smile are porcelain veneers.

Dr. Neuhaus and Dr. Neuhaus, the dentists of Creekside Dentistry in Amherst, offer several types of dental veneers, including porcelain veneers, to their patients. Porcelain veneers provide natural looking, long lasting results for those seeking a cosmetic change and can also be used to correct a variety of dental health issues: crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, chipped teeth, and stained or discolored teeth.

The porcelain veneer procedure takes 2-3 visits: Dr. Neuhaus will prepare the tooth surface and take impressions during the first visit and patients will return for final placement of the custom fit and colored restorations. Porcelain veneers are made of a thin, translucent material that reflects light naturally and is highly stain resistant. They can provide a natural looking result that will last for a lifetime with proper care and regular dental visits: Dr. Neuhaus recommends twice per year routine care visits for a thorough dental cleaning and exam as well as good at home oral hygiene.

As an alternative to porcelain veneers, Creekside Dentistry offers composite resin veneers and Lumineers. Both of these dental veneers require little or no tooth prep, but are not permanent. Dr. Neuhaus will attach composite resin veneers directly to the tooth surface, sculpting the material to fit within a patient’s natural smile.

Choosing the correct type of veneer can be confusing, but Dr. Neuhaus will thoroughly evaluate a patient’s oral health and make a recommendation based on this as well as a patient’s personal goals and budget.

Dental veneers can be the solution for a variety of oral health and cosmetic issues! Schedule a consultation with Dr. Neuhaus at Creekside Dentistry to discuss your options.
