Porcelain Veneers

If you find that you look at your smile each morning wishing that it was different, or if you hide behind closed lips, put your hands up in front of your face when you laugh, or shy away from interacting with others because you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, it is time to make the decision and ask about porcelain veneers.

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth colored material designed to cover the front surface of the teeth in order to improve their appearance. These shells are bonded to the teeth in order to change their color, shape, size, length, and minor alignment concerns. Porcelain veneers are designed to mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth so that they look like natural teeth.

Cosmetic Dental Lumineers

Pleasant Plains Dental offers Lumineers as the perfect solution to whatever smile issue you have. Dr. Henry J. Ernst, DMD, leads Pleasant Plains Dental with experience and dental cosmetic training to help patients gain a new, beautiful smile. By using Lumineers, Dr. Ernst is able to design a smile that you can be proud of. Lumineers are thin porcelain veneers made from Cerinate Porcelain. This porcelain is about the same thickness as a contact lens, and it is designed to be applied seamlessly over your teeth. Lumineers is the number one patient requested veneer system in the world because of its success and limited preparation to the teeth.

Traditional veneers require more aggressive and irreversible removal of healthy teeth structure in order to apply them because they are thicker. Lumineers are thin and require a minimally invasive technique to design a custom made smile that you can be proud of. At Pleasant Plains Dental, we are dedicated to helping you achieve a smile that you are ready to show off to the rest of the world. Not all dental practices offer Lumineers because of the special training that is involved. But Dr. Henry J. Ernst at Pleasant Plains Dental is proud to bring you a beautifully, natural smile with Lumineers. Contact us today for a consultation so that you begin your journey to a more confident you.
