Non-prep Veneers & Lumineers

Are you frustrated with heightened tooth sensitivity, cracked or chipped teeth, darker than you want them teeth, or uneven tooth spacing? With porcelain veneers, you will soon be showing off your ideal smile.

What are porcelain veneers, and why is porcelain the preferred material?

Porcelain veneers are very thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that are attached to the front surfaces of teeth for an immediate smile transformation. Individually custom-crafted for each patient, they are made from advanced porcelain which very closely resembles the appearance of natural dental enamel. Your Burnaby Heights Dental Centre dentists exclusively use porcelain veneers (and Lumineers) because they are slimmer, stronger, and far more similar to the natural tooth surface than other veneers. Your dentist uses veneers for a wide range of cosmetic corrections to create your own, completely natural smile – just whiter, straighter, and more symmetrical.

What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?

  • Applying veneers is minimally-invasive, as porcelain veneers are so thin that very little natural tooth material needs to be removed and little to no anesthesia is required during the treatment
  • Together, you and your dentist will determine the colour shade and shape of your new teeth, with the result being permanently whitening, straightening, and filling-in of uneven tooth spacing
  • Porcelain veneers allow a more comfortable bite, by slightly reshaping tooth surfaces so that your jaws rest together more easily.
  • Porcelain veneers serve as a new layer of tooth enamel and are the most effective solution for those suffering from extremely sensitive teeth

Lumineers at Burnaby Heights Dental Centre offer a new smile without the pain associated with traditional veneer installation. Lumineers are designed as incredibly thin veneers that are attached to teeth without any invasive practices. No drilling. No shots. No pain. Just a beautiful smile.

We install Lumineers that last for at least 20 years, but that take only two meetings to completely install. The main benefit of Lumineers is their convenience and flexibility of installation. Although not a permanent fix for oral health issues, Lumineers are a great choice for anyone that wants to better the aesthetics of their smile.

As the application process is largely non-invasive, and porcelain veneers can be applied in just 2 appointments, porcelain veneers are the ideal dental solution: a quick and simple restoration of cracked, uneven, or dis-coloured teeth that lends the teeth strength as well as beauty.

For those seeking totally painless veneers, consider the hyper-thin LUMINEERS: veneers so thin that minimal or NO tooth preparation is required. Call us at (604) 320 7321 to book a free consultation.
