Dental Veneers Options

Cosmetic Dentistry for Beverly Hills & Los Angeles, CA

At the Beverly Hills cosmetic dentistry practice of Dr. Kevin B. Sands, we offer porcelain veneers and Lumineers to give you a flawless smile. Using either of these options, Dr. Sands can create the smile of your dreams.

Porcelain Veneers
When you explain the areas of your smile you would like to improve, Dr. Sands can explain how porcelain veneers may accomplish your smile goals.
There are many benefits of porcelain veneers. This material creates a natural, appealing smile by concealing a variety of tooth problems, such as irregularly sized teeth and chipped teeth.
Porcelain veneers are the option of choice for a vast number of our patients. These veneers are durable and beautiful, and can provide an improved smile appearance for many years. Porcelain veneers make a celebrity-like smile accessible to anyone.
In just about every case, our cosmetic dentistry team recommends porcelain veneers over other veneers options. This option provides superior aesthetic results. Porcelain veneers fit seamlessly into your smile and do not stand out. They are also very durable and can conceal most common cosmetic dental problems.

Lumineers are a brand of veneers offered in addition to traditional porcelain veneers at Dr. Sands' practice. Some of the reasons we offer Lumineers as an option include:  

  • Does not alter tooth surface
  • Cost effective
  • Reversible

  Some of the downsides of Lumineers include that they tend to be less durable, more bulky on your teeth, and less customizable to your specific smile goals.
Traditional porcelain veneers require removal of a minimal amount of tooth to create a surface for the veneers. Because Lumineers are slightly thinner, they do not require alteration of tooth enamel. As such, the application of porcelain veneers is a little more involved than that of Lumineers. This also means you can likely have your Lumineers removed at any time, if you wish, without concern for the underlying natural tooth.
Dr. Sands and his cosmetic dentistry team want you to have the most beautiful smile possible. We offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry services to provide you with options. During a consultation with our cosmetic dentist, we can explore all of your options, including what you can expect from porcelain veneers and Lumineers.
