lumineers fremont VS Veneers – Ever wondered what sorcery celebrities and Hollywood stars concoct to have glimmering white teeth perfect for every photo op?
Well, actually, there’s no Hogwarts-ish secret here, nor any magic involved. The answer lies in veneers, the smile saver that provides straight, pristine and flawless teeth to anyone who dreams of having picture-perfect smiles in every occasion.
Made of a thin and natural-looking material, these tiny, porcelain shells are bonded to the top of the teeth to provide a more attractive smile. Veneers can alleviate a bevy of problems such as misshapen or chipped teeth, cracked teeth, gaps , discoloration as well as stains.
Veneers are just miracle workers offering a solution so invisible yet the difference is prominently seen by everyone.
Today we’ll talk about a particular brand of veneers called Lumineers®.
These are no-drilling and no-shot no-shots/no-drilling products – a technique made possible through placement of the ultra-thin shells often referred to by Dentists as the No-Prep or No Tooth Preparation placement.
Now we’ve got the basics down. Let’s go straight to the head-to-head.
