We can use veneers to help someone with their smile in several ways, whether it be their teeth are crowded, maybe a little discolored, whether they have space, whether they just don't like the length of their teeth, and they have a lot of wear on their teeth. A lot of times individuals that we treat for veneers, although we can treat from 20 to 85 and beyond, a lot of them are individuals that have a little bit of wear and tear. We all have it as life goes on, and some veneering can really improve our smile, brighten it, just make everything a little nicer. It can also be protective of the teeth, which is a really important aspect. If we have some chipping already, then things need to be protected, and that can be one benefit that ... and like I said, also just brighter smile, which everyone would like.
So one of the options that we have for veneers are what are called Lumineers, which most of us have heard of, which is a noninvasive type of veneer that typically doesn't require preparation, meaning any reduction of the tooth. There's three ways to do it, but one of them is no prep, no-prep veneer, where we take impressions of the teeth, and a couple of weeks later we get the veneers and place them on the teeth. The patient still retains their natural teeth. There are also other aspects where we can utilize Lumineers, where we reduce little bits of the teeth so we can effectively straighten the teeth, for example. But still, very noninvasive, very minimal preparation.
So Lumineers are a very nice option to have, to give to patients. We still do the standard veneers of all types, but that's one aspect and one thing that we can offer to patients, again, the minimal- or no-prep veneer.

Polish Up Your Smile With Teeth Veneers
Dental veneers have the potential to completely re-create your smile. These thin shells of tooth-colored material will bond to the front of your imperfect teeth to hide smile flaws and give you a bold new look. Few treatments can make such a dramatic improvement in your appearance as custom veneers can.
At Johnson Dentistry, we offer two main types of teeth veneers. As one of our most popular cosmetic treatments, porcelain veneers remain a tried-and-true option for many patients seeking aesthetic improvement. They are strong, durable, and stain-resistant. Plus, they are available in a variety of shades, translucencies, and thicknesses to create the exact look you want.
For a less expensive, quicker veneers option, composite resin veneers will also do the trick. Dr. Johnson can make these right in our office using the same material that we use for our composite teeth fillings. At about half the investment of porcelain veneers, they are a great alternative.
Getting Veneers Is Simple
Both types of veneer treatment begin with a consultation and exam. Dr. Johnson will carefully look over your mouth, plus we’ll take a few digital X-rays to get a closer look at your teeth, roots, and nerves. He will then discuss your treatment options in detail and help you decide which one will work best for your circumstances.
For most veneer placements, we will need to remove a small amount of tooth enamel to make room for the veneers. The exact amount will vary based on your teeth and the types of veneers used. Afterward, we will take impressions of your mouth so that your new veneers can be custom-crafted.
If you are getting porcelain veneers, we will send the impressions to our lab partner where they will be created to exact specifications. Once they are ready, usually a few days later, you’ll return to our office where Dr. Johnson will bond them into place on your teeth. For composite veneers, depending on the complexity of your treatment, Dr. Johnson may be able to place them the same day.
