Bonded to the front side of selected teeth, veneers, or no-prep Lumineers, disguise defects and reveal the look of your dreams—read on to learn more!

What are porcelain veneers?

Veneers, or dental laminates, are a very popular aesthetic dental treatment. Custom-fabricated from fine ceramic or porcelain, these thin shells are bonded to the front of defective, but healthy, teeth, covering stains, chips, pits, minor tooth rotations, uneven tooth size, and more.

Traditional veneers require minor tooth enamel reduction so the laminates have sufficient space in your mouth for proper fit and oral function. This minimal buffing, along with oral impressions, occurs during your first appointment at our Noblesville office. Following these steps, you will wear temporary veneers until your next visit when Dr. Ridder installs the permanent ones with a cement she can adjust for thickness and color. A hardening light cures the bonding material, creating an incredibly strong foundation.

Maintaining porcelain veneers

Veneers reinforce tooth structure without the extensive enamel reduction and expense of porcelain crowns. Veneers also last for up to ten years, says the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and are easy to care for. Simply brush twice daily, floss to keep your gums healthy, and see your dentist every six months for your usual exam and cleaning.
