If you have cosmetic damage on your teeth, one treatment that our dentist, Dr. Fiona Tavakoli, might recommend is dental veneers. Once applied to your teeth, veneers will equip you with a completely new smile that you can be proud of. We also offer Lumineers®, an ultra-thin dental veneer that mimics the look and feel of a healthy natural tooth. If you are looking for dental veneers or Lumineers in Oceanside, California, please give North Coast Dental Excellence a call today at 760-941-1414 to learn more.
If you are considering dental veneers or Lumineers, it is important to understand the similarities and differences between the two procedures and how one treatment may benefit you more than the other. Both veneers and Lumineers can give you a beautiful, natural-looking smile. However, there are some key differences to keep in mind before making a decision.
Dental veneers and Lumineers are both made from thin, tooth-colored material (usually porcelain) that is bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. Both options also require the same number of visits to our office to complete. However, dental veneers are typically less expensive, do not last as long as Lumineers and may require more upkeep over time.
Lumineers are more expensive than dental veneers, but they last longer and require less upkeep. Lumineers are also less likely to chip or crack over time. In fact, Lumineers have been known to last up to 20 years! The treatment process for Lumineers is also generally more comfortable, as Lumineers are designed to be ultra thin and require little to no tooth preparation before being bonded into place.
If you are considering either dental veneers or Lumineers, be sure to schedule a consultation and speak with our dentist about your options so that you can receive the treatment that is right for you.
