Veneers

Veneers are custom-made, tooth-colored shells that are bonded to your teeth with dental cement or bonding adhesive. Veneers cover the front surfaces of your teeth and can help improve your appearance and smile by covering up a tooth that is discolored, misshaped, or worn down. Veneers can also close gaps between teeth or repair a chipped tooth.

Types Of Veneers

Veneers can be made from several different types of materials. Generally, your dentist will help you decide which type is best for you.

  • Porcelain veneers
  • Lumineers
  • Composite veneers

Porcelain veneers are the most common type of veneers. Porcelain has a very shiny surface that closely resembles your enamel and will give you a more natural and translucent appearance. In addition, porcelain is stain resistant and it is also very friendly to your gums.

Veneer Treatments

It normally takes two visits for your dentist to complete your veneers. If preparation is necessary, on the first visit your Chino Hills dentist will use a dental hand piece to shape and prepare the teeth so the veneers will properly fit over them. Next, an impression of your teeth is taken and temporary veneers may be placed to protect the prepared teeth. The impression of your teeth is then sent to a dental laboratory where custom-fit veneers are made. During this first visit, your dentist will also help you choose the proper shade for the color of your veneers.

In most cases, on your second visit to our dentist office the veneers are placed and, if necessary, adjusted to create a proper fit. If the fit, shape and color of the veneers are satisfactory, your dentist will proceed with permanently cementing them into place.

Repairing & Caring For Dental Veneers

Porcelain Veneers are usually not repairable should they chip or crack so you should attempt to avoid biting directly on small hard items such as hard candies, your fingernails, or pens. And you should never chew on anything cold and hard such as ice.

If you grind your teeth during the day or at night, your dentist may recommend a night guard to protect your veneers from these grinding forces. A night guard is a plastic cover that fits over your teeth to deflect hard forces. Night guard will also increase the longevity of your veneers.


Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural. State-of-the-art dental implant technology provides great results allowing high quality eating, speaking, and smiling. Chewing and speech problems caused by missing teeth may be restored or improved. You’ll be able to eat foods you previously avoided. Best of all, an increased confidence in your smile allows you to better enjoy life. The result is a natural appearance that is intended to be permanent.

A dental implant is a small titanium screw or cylinder which is surgically placed in the upper or lower jawbone. The implant replaces the root of the missing tooth, providing an anchor for your new tooth. Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes. Dental implants can also be placed to anchor and support partial or full dentures, eliminating the need for dental adhesives. Dentures can be supported with either a bar/clip or ball/socket attachment for removal, allowing for regular cleaning.

Candidates need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by Dr. Patel will help determine whether you are a good candidate.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is LUMINEERS™ BY CERINATE® different than traditional veneer procedures?

LUMINEERS BY CERINATE is unique in that it is contact-lens-thin (approximately .2 mm) and super translucent. Traditional veneers are fused or bonded to teeth, and generally your dentist will need to grind down the tooth for a good fit. Since LUMINEERS is so thin, little to no tooth reduction is necessary. In addition, LUMINEERS resists micro-leakage and micro-cracking.

Is there any other LUMINEERS?

No. LUMINEERS can only be made from patented Cerinate porcelain. This revolutionary porcelain is crafted through a proprietary process unavailable anywhere other than Den-Mat Holdings, LLC, one of the nation’s largest manufacturers of professional dental materials.

I’ve heard that a veneer procedure hurts? Is that true with LUMINEERS?

It’s true that because most veneer procedures require a substantial amount of tooth structure removal, that there is pain and discomfort involved. LUMINEERS is completely different because there is no need for grinding, cutting or filing of teeth in almost all cases. Consequently, no anesthetic or numbing shots are needed. Plus, no uncomfortable temporaries are required while you wait for LUMINEERS to be created. Once the procedure is completed, there is no post-placement discomfort or sensitivity, which means LUMINEERS will look natural and feel comfortable from the start.

I think I need braces, but I really don’t want to go through the inconvenient, unsightly and time-intensive process. Can I get LUMINEERS instead?

In most cases, yes. Your dentist will be able to evaluate your teeth and decide whether orthodontics is necessary. If you do not have a severe problem, LUMINEERS will change the shape and alignment of teeth, making them look straighter and more uniform.

How long will LUMINEERS last?

LUMINEERS has unparalleled longevity. Clinical testing has proven that a LUMINEERS procedure lasts and looks great for up to 20 years. LUMINEERS BY CERINATE also offers a 5-year Warranty and are replaced at no charge. Certain restrictions do apply.

Can LUMINEERS be taken off if I want them removed?

Yes, LUMINEERS are completely reversible. This is largely due to the no reduction in sensitive tooth structure so that the natural teeth are still intact and strong.

With LUMINEERS, can I still chew gum and eat my favorite sticky foods like corn or candy?

There are no limitations to what you can eat or drink as LUMINEERS are placed over original teeth in the most durable way possible. However, you should continue to visit your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and cleaning to keep your LUMINEERS in good condition and to qualify for the Warranty.

Why have I never heard of LUMINEERS before?

More than 5,000 dentists nationwide use LUMINEERS BY CERINATE and we continue to educate the dental community on this new procedure. Recently, a national advertising campaign has been launched to educate consumers about this noninvasive technique.
