In Lumineers (Cosmetic Veneers)

Cosmetic dentistry offers an opportunity for everyone to improve their self-esteem through a beautiful smile that can be achieved with dental veneers. Whether you’ve stained or chipped teeth, or gaps between teeth, cosmetic veneers are your ideal dental treatment. Your dentist can only perform the procedure after a proper dental health examination, but it is crucial to know a few things about veneers.


Dental veneers are thin composite or porcelain shells placed on the surface of the teeth to correct dental problems such as highly worn-down tooth enamel, discolored teeth, and missing teeth. Cosmetic veneers are advanced cosmetic dentistry procedures that can also treat chipped and cracked teeth. Because veneers are custom-made, your dentist fits them on the outer surface of your teeth to resemble the original white enamel.


There are several causes of unattractive teeth that can be treated with cosmetic dental veneers. The procedure has been around for several years, and its advancements can solve nearly all problems associated with cosmetic issues. Below are some common factors that suggest you need cosmetic veneer treatment.

  • Discoloration of tooth: If teeth whitening seems ineffective to correct discolored teeth, dental veneer treatment could be the only option to fix stained teeth and improve appearance.
  • Chipped or cracked tooth: As you grow old, you will likely experience chips and cracks in your teeth. Accidents are also another factor that can lead to chipped or cracked teeth. Cosmetic veneers help restore the natural look, allowing you to have a beautiful smile.
  • Uneven teeth: Jagged teeth result in an unattractive smile and bite problems. With various causes of crooked teeth, cosmetic veneers solve the problem and improve your smiles.
  • Gaps between teeth: Some individuals are born with spaces between teeth, or these gaps may appear as you grow older. Filling these gaps with veneers helps promote an attractive smile whenever you’re out in public.


Before the procedure, your dentist will conduct a preliminary examination to ensure your oral health is in decent shape for the treatment. Your dentist will then prepare customized veneers, including choosing the right color that fits your smile. The shells are later placed on the tooth or teeth using a mold. After the procedure, you’ll be required to make two appointments within two weeks.
