Porcelain Veneers & Lumineers

Are you less than enthusiastic about your smile?

Your smile is a key part of your identity. It invites people to get to know you better and communicates information about who you are and your personality.

Veneers in Carlsbad CAIf you’d like to transform the color, shape, size, and overall appearance of your smile, porcelain veneers present a great solution. This one procedure could potentially eliminate the need for orthodontics, teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding, and contouring. 

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are individually designed by Dr. Nguyen so the results will look natural and complement your unique appearance. Dr. Nguyen will consider your skin tone, face shape, features, and personality when designing your porcelain veneers.

In our dental lab, a ceramist will handcraft your veneers using quality dental porcelain that reflects light like natural tooth enamel.

Traditional veneers require some tooth preparation so that they lie flat, in line with surrounding teeth.

What Are Lumineers?

If you have small or sensitive teeth, Lumineers (no-prep) veneers may be a good option.

You may have seen Lumineers commercials on television or heard the radio advertisements. Dr. Nguyen only places Lumineers on patients whom she feels are perfect candidates for these restorations.

How Do I Get Started?

The first step in getting a smile you love is calling Delicate Dental Arts and requesting a consultation with Dr. Nguyen.

At your smile consultation, Dr. Nguyen can discuss the advantages of porcelain veneers over other cosmetic procedures. If you have questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to talk to her about them.

She may also create a diagnostic wax model or digitally enhanced image of your potential smile, so you can see what her proposed treatment would produce.

Veneers are an investment in your smile and once enamel is removed, it cannot be replaced, making this procedure permanent. If you’re not ready for veneers, we are also happy to discuss Snap-On Smile.

Why Should I Consider Cosmetic Dentistry?

Many people dislike the appearance of their smile but worry that others might think that they are vain for considering cosmetic dentistry. Others think that an investment in cosmetic dentistry is frivolous.

The fact is that neither of these things are true. An unattractive smile that doesn’t represent you well can hold you back both socially and professionally. You deserve to feel good about yourself, and an investment in your self-confidence is hardly frivolous!

You might also be surprised by how many people have opted for cosmetic improvements to their smiles! Very few celebrities in Hollywood start out with red-carpet-ready smiles. Veneers are often the secret behind their perfect teeth.
