Dr. Dean Dietrich and the staff of Pleasant Dental® in Dolton, IL encourage patients to consider the advantages of cosmetic treatments. One of the most popular options for patients who have imperfections in the front of the smile is porcelain veneers and Lumineers.

What are veneers?

Veneers are facings used to disguise issues with the anterior teeth. Veneers come in two varieties at Pleasant Dental®:

  • Porcelain veneers
  • Lumineers

Both solutions are used in the same manner, though Lumineers do have some benefits over traditional porcelain veneers.

  • Thickness – Lumineers are extremely thin. This eliminates added bulk once bonded onto the natural teeth.
  • No-prep – Because Lumineers are paper-thin, they do not require patients to undergo the filing down of their natural tooth structure. This eliminates damage to the healthy tooth for placement.
  • Reversible – Since Lumineers do not remove natural tooth structure, they can be removed if patients change their mind later. Traditional porcelain veneers are not removable due to the amount of structure removed for their placement.
  • Longevity – Both porcelain veneers and Lumineers have long lifespans, most lasting over ten years.

Which one is right for me?

The best way to determine if traditional veneers or Lumineers are appropriate for your smile is to schedule an appointment at Pleasant Dental®. This initial consultation appointment is the time to discuss the advantages of each to make an educated decision.
