Porcelain veneers might be cosmetic dentistry’s hottest new trend, but the ultrathin and oh-so-natural Lumineers deliver the most winning smile of all.
Even after suffering long years of dentistry and orthodontics, the perfect smile eludes many of us. Stubborn discoloration can survive even the most advanced whitening treatments, and what was once a simple chip can become a persistently flimsy filling that needs replacing all too often. Many turn to porcelain veneers to remedy such hang-ups, benefiting from the flexibility to alter the shape and size of teeth while gaining additional strength and color correction. However, traditional veneers require extensive prep, including the removal of tooth material, making the application process irreversible. That’s why Dr. Goldstein of Goldstein Dental Center (goldsteinonline.com) loves working with Lumineers. “We design smiles with the least amount of tooth reduction,” shares Goldstein. “In fact, in some situations, no tooth reduction is needed at all.” Lumineers’ ultrathin construction gives all the benefits of veneers without the loss of natural teeth. Now that’s something to smile about.
