One of the many treatments that can give you the smile that you have always wanted is veneers. A veneer is a thin covering that is placed on the front and side of your tooth. Porcelain veneers, lumineers and composite resin veneers are the different types of veneers that are available.
Porcelain veneers are made up of ceramic. They are very resistant to stain and are permanently bonded to the teeth. A portion of the enamel will need to be removed before the veneers are placed. Lumineers are very similar to porcelain veneers. However, they do not require that the dentist remove a part of the enamel. It is important to note that lumineers are not offered by Dr. Harper, but he does offer restorations that are very similar to lumineers.
Composite resin veneers are made using a biocompatible, tooth-colored material. They are sculpted into form and applied directly to the teeth. There is little to no preparation required if you are getting composite resin veneers. Additionally, composite resin veneers can be applied in one visit.
