Get a Confident Smile with Porcelain Veneers & Lumineers in Eugene
The appearance of your teeth directly impacts your confidence. If you do not love your smile but do not want to undergo lengthy or invasive procedures, porcelain veneers in Eugene may be right for you. Dr. Sutter provides a noninvasive treatment to achieve lasting results by attaching thin shells to the front side of the teeth. Cosmetic flaws are instantly hidden to give you a bright, beautiful smile.
Benefit from Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are bonded to the front side of the teeth to hide cosmetic flaws, like chips, cracks, and discoloration. Veneers also enhance the shape and proportion of the teeth, perfect for those who have shorter than average teeth or abnormally shaped teeth. In some cases, they can be used as an alternative to orthodontics because they can make the teeth appear straighter.
When compared to other types of dental veneers, porcelain is the preferred material. Porcelain closely mimics enamel. As a result, light reflects the surface of the veneers to create a natural-looking smile. In addition, porcelain veneers are thinner so less of the tooth’s structure is removed during the bonding process. This allows the procedure to be minimally invasive while preserving the integrity of the teeth. With porcelain, you do not have to worry about your new, bright smile dulling. Porcelain is stain-resistant so your teeth will stay white.

After performing an initial consultation, Dr. Sutter will create a comprehensive treatment plan. During the first phase of the procedure, your teeth are cleaned. Then, a small amount of enamel is removed. This is necessary to ensure the veneers sit flush on the teeth while create a secure bond between the veneer and the tooth.
Once the teeth have been prepared, impressions are taken to create your veneers. The impressions are sent to the dental lab to create your new smile. Dr. Sutter will attach temporary veneers while you wait for your new veneers. In a couple of weeks, your permanent veneers are ready to be bonded to your teeth.
Enjoy a Confident Smile
Porcelain veneers are a simple way to achieve drastic results. The procedure is minimally invasive and produces very little discomfort. However, you may have some tooth sensitivity temporarily. With your new smile in place, you will care for the veneers the same as you care for your natural teeth. Do not use any abrasive products when brushing to ensure they do not become scratched. In addition, do not use your teeth as tools to prevent the veneers from breaking. With the right care, your new smile will last an average of 10 years before needing replaced.
If you're interested in transforming your smile with porcelain veneers, you may also be interested in learning about Lumineers, especially if you're unsure about enamel removal. Lumineers are like porcelain veneers but require very minimal tooth prep. That means you have the option to remove them at any time later on if you'd prefer to return to your natural smile.
Like traditional porcelain veneers, Lumineers cover teeth to alter their shape, size, and color, creating a more dazzling and confident appearance. But Lumineers aren't right for everyone. We will be happy to help you determine whether they're the best option for you.
If Lumineers are right for you, getting started is as simple as coming to our Eugene dental office to have an impression of your teeth made. The Lumineers lab will refer to this impression as they craft your custom-made veneers. When your Lumineers are ready, you'll just need to return to our office to have them put into place. If cared for properly, your Lumineers can help you keep your smile looking its best for years to come.
