About Porcelain Veneers

A quick way to improve your smile and hide chipped, crooked, decayed, or stained teeth is with porcelain veneers at Martin Dentistry. Dental veneers are light shells made out of porcelain that can be bonded to the front of your teeth to improve the overall look of your smile. Cosmetic and general dentists Drs. Matthew Martin, Stephanie Martin, and Lynn Marshall design custom porcelain veneers according to each patient’s unique skin tone, face shape, existing dentition, and personal preferences. We also offer Lumineers, an ultra-thin style of veneer that requires no tooth preparation. During your private consultation, we will discuss the differences between porcelain veneers and Lumineers to help determine which option is best for you. Both offer attractive, natural-looking results that improve the color, size, shape, and/or length of your teeth. Schedule an appointment at our Fishers, IN office to learn more about porcelain veneers and decide if they are right for your needs.

Lumineers®

Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers are thinner, which eliminates aggressive tooth preparation including filing the teeth, anesthesia, and temporary veneers. The Lumineers process starts with the dentist creating an impression of the patient’s upper and lower teeth, which are sent to a Lumineers laboratory. Once the patient’s custom-made Lumineers are sent back to the dentist (usually in about 2 – 3 weeks), the patient returns to have their Lumineers fitted and placed. The patient’s Lumineers are then easily applied without problems of pain and sensitivity. About as thin as a contact lens, Lumineers improve the patient’s smile while still looking natural. With proper home care and regular dental exams and cleanings, Lumineers should last for about 20 years.

What to Expect

Before a porcelain veneer is placed, the dentist must remove a thin layer of enamel from the front surface of each tooth to make room for the veneer. After the enamel is removed a digital impression of the teeth is made and sent to a dental laboratory where an expert will tailor-make the patient’s veneers. The veneer is made of several thin layers of ceramic. Until the veneer is ready, the patient will wear a temporary veneer. Once the veneer is ready, the patients will return to the dentist for an appointment where a special resin is used as a bonding agent between the veneer and the tooth. Veneers are durable and can last up to 20 years with proper oral hygiene and care.

Treatment Aftercare

For the first few days, a patient may be more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures because of the removal of the natural enamel. This should subside within a few days. A week after the veneers are placed, a patient needs a follow-up appointment at the dentist’s office to make sure the mouth is responding well to the veneers. Due to the material they are made of and since they are easy to polish, the probability of staining veneers is slight to none. It’s still a good idea to brush after consuming foods or drinks that stain the teeth, especially coffee, soda, tea, and red wine. Veneers should be brushed with a non-abrasive toothpaste, flossed, and rinsed with mouthwash just like natural teeth. Patients should be sure to keep up with regular dental appointments so the dentist can perform professional maintenance by polishing the veneers with a special, non-abrasive paste to keep them in pristine condition.
