Cosmetic dentistry works in conjunction with general dentistry to ensure the overall health and beauty of your mouth.
The appearance of your teeth should reflect your excellent dental health. Otherwise, neither you nor the world will know that your teeth are healthy and strong. An aesthetically pleasing mouth heightens your self-esteem, brightens your face, and betters your presentation in both social and professional interactions.

Veneers and Lumineers
Have you experienced frustration with cracked or chipped teeth, tooth discoloration, heightened tooth sensitivity, or uneven tooth spacing?With the help of porcelain veneers, you will soon be showing off your ideal smile.
WHAT ARE PORCELAIN VENEERS, AND WHY IS PORCELAIN THE PREFERRED MATERIAL?
Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic and functional solution for a wide variety of dental concerns. Incredibly thin, custom-tailored, tooth-colored shells that bond to existing teeth, veneers provide completely unnoticeable new tooth surfaces. We exclusively use porcelain veneers because they are slimmer, stronger, and far more similar to a natural tooth surface than other veneers. Your veneered teeth will form your own, completely natural smile – just whiter, straighter, and more symmetrical.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PORCELAIN VENEERS?
The application process is minimally-invasive, as porcelain veneers are so thin that very little natural tooth needs to be removed
Little to no anesthesia is required for the application
Porcelain veneers act as a new layer of enamel on teeth, and are the most effective solution for those suffering from extreme tooth sensitivity
You and you dentist will determine the shade and shape of your new teeth as a team, giving you the opportunity to permanently whiten, straighten, and fill in uneven tooth spacing.
Porcelain veneers can give you a more comfortable bite, by slightly reshaping tooth surfaces so that your jaws rest together more easily.
As the veneering process is largely non-invasive, and porcelain veneers can be applied in just two office visits, porcelain veneers are the ideal dental solution: a quick and simple restoration of cracked, uneven, or discolored teeth that lends the teeth strength as well as beauty.
Take a moment to evaluate your teeth and, more importantly, your attitude toward those teeth. When you catch a glimpse of your smile in a mirror or photograph, are you pleased with your teeth, or are you unsatisfied? If you aren’t completely happy with your smile, you soon will be.

WHAT ARE LUMINEERS?
LUMINEERS – the minimally invasive way to bring out the beautiful, healthy, natural, permanently white smile in you. Ultra-thin and translucent veneers LUMINEERS are custom designed to give you the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. Unlike traditional veneers, there are no shots and no drilling of sensitive tooth structure. They’re even reversible, so you have nothing to lose and a beautiful smile to gain.
LUMINEERS porcelain veneers are made only from Cerinate Porcelain- a patented, ultra-strong porcelain manufactured exclusively in Santa Maria, California. Cerinate Porcelain is feldspathic porcelain reinforced with leucite crystals. The particular uniformity of the leucite crystals in Cerinate Porcelain helps it to resist cracking and crazing. The high strength of Cerinate allows LUMINEERS to be made contact lens-thin, without increased risk of breakage, so you can place veneers without the need for anesthetic, extensive prepping, or temporaries. Cerinate Porcelain has a low coefficient of thermal expansion, helping to prevent debonding or pop-offs, and can be either stacked or pressed.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LUMINEERS AND TRADITIONAL VENEERS?
LUMINEERS are highly effective porcelain veneers: the thinnest and longest lasting. You can completely reshape and brighten your smile with the Lumineer process, and all without spending days in the dental chair.
With Lumineers, the structure of your natural teeth remains untouched
You need not experience numbing or pain for Lumineer application
The Lumineer process only takes two appointments, so you can spend less time in the office and more showing off your gorgeous new smile to the world!
Lumineers are proven to maintain structural integrity for over 20 years, giving you durable, worry-free new teeth.
Lumineers are slightly smoother than natural teeth, making it harder for bacteria to cling to teeth and helping prevent tooth decay.
Like standard porcelain veneers, LUMINEERS offer the best of both cosmetic and functional dentistry by enhancing your teeth aesthetically and structurally. Lumineers can also operate on a purely functional level: if you are completely satisfied with your current teeth but experience worn dentition or enamel loss, Lumineers can provide you with an entirely new tooth surface without altering the appearance of your smile. Lumineers are so thin and adaptable that they won’t be seen in your mouth.
