Porcelain Veneers and Lumineers—Two Popular Cosmetic Options for a Better Smile

March 27, 2012

For patients who’ve kept their smiles hidden because of low self-confidence, Dr. Hornstein has two great options for restoring confidence—porcelain veneers and Lumineers. Both are made from thin shells of porcelain and are designed to match the shade and shape of your smile. The difference is that porcelain veneers are intended to become a permanent part of your smile, while Lumineers may only be temporary.

Regardless of which you choose your procedure will start the same way—with a consultation appointment at The Center for Advanced Dentistry. During your consultation, Dr. Hornstein will have a chance to talk with you about the results you’re looking for, in addition to taking a close look at your teeth and gums.

Once Dr. Hornstein has an idea of what you’re looking for, a final recommendation can be made to help you decide which is most right for you. Porcelain veneers are permanent, and require preparation before they can be applied. Lumineers, on the other hand, are sometimes referred to as minimal prep veneers, because they require little to no preparation and can be removed later if you want to return to your natural smile. The one that’s most right for you will depend on your needs and what you want to get out of your new look.

If you’re curious about porcelain veneers and Lumineers but need help deciding between the two, call our Beachwood dental office to schedule a visit with Dr. Hornstein. We’d be happy to help you find your way and transform your smile.

Smile Makeover, Part 1: What Is a Smile Makeover?

September 26, 2011

Back in July, we talked about how patients of Dr. Hornstein’s Beachwood office can have a whiter smile in just one hour with professional teeth whitening.

As great as our teeth whitening services are, though, we’re using more than one cosmetic service to improve smiles and boost confidence. With Invisalign clear braces and porcelain veneers/Lumineers, we can help you achieve exactly the look you’ve been dreaming of.

These individual services make up what we call a smile makeover, and over the next few posts we’ll go into more detail about exactly what these services are, how they can help you, and what kinds of benefits they bring to the table. But for now, we’ll just tell you that with these services, patients can dramatically change the way their smile looks. Each one comes with different benefits, and one may be more right for you than the other, but both can yield dramatically surprising results.

To find out which service will give your smile and your confidence the biggest boost possible, contact our Beachwood office to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Hornstein. His passion for his patients, mixed with his eye for detail and expertise will help him create a makeover plan that you can count on.

Call us today, and let us get your smile makeover started.
