If chips, cracks, gaps, or stains in your smile cause you embarrassment and keep you from sharing your smile, it's time you visited Dr. Avanzato. As a cosmetic dentist, he offers diverse treatment options to patients who need a smile makeover, including porcelain veneers or Lumineers. These thin shells of porcelain are created to match your individual needs, and then bonded to your front teeth. Once in place, they are stunningly lifelike and create your ideal smile without drastically changing your tooth structure.
The porcelain used to fabricate veneers and Lumineers does not stain, as natural teeth do, so there is no need to worry about discoloration in the years ahead. However, if you would like a brighter smile, ask us about undergoing a Zoom! Whitening treatment before color-matching your veneers.
In some cases, Dr. Avanzato suggests Lumineers for certain patients. This type of veneer requires very little to no tooth preparation, reducing the time it takes to perform the procedure and the chance you'll experience tooth sensitivity in connection with porcelain veneer process. They are not appropriate for every situation, however, and Dr. Avanzato recommends them in a relatively small fraction of cases. Those with small teeth or who have a smile with large gaps could be good candidates for Lumineers. The type of porcelain veneers you receive will depend on a personal assessment at our office, so there is never a one-size-fits-all solution.
In addition to veneers, there are many cosmetic dentistry treatments that can revitalize your smile. Cosmetic bonding offers a shorter-term solution for patients who would like to address chipped, cracked, stained, or otherwise flawed teeth. For patients who prefer not to have veneers, cosmetic bonding presents a one-visit solution to correct chips, cracks, stains, gaps, and other smile imperfections.
