Veneers and Composite Bonding

Veneers are artfully crafted, thin (0.2 mm), tooth-colored shells that are bonded to the front side of teeth to correct imperfections and create beautiful smiles. They can be as strong as your natural teeth and last for many years.

Veneers are often used to:

  • change the color of teeth that are badly stained or discolored
  • change the shape of teeth that are misshapen, broken, chipped, crooked, or have lost dimension from wear and tear
  • close spaces between teeth
  • repair extensive decay

River Valley Dental offers several options for natural looking veneers: Indirect veneers, including Lumineers, and direct veneers, often referred to as Composite Bonding.

Unique to River Valley Dental is the expertise in all disciplines of dentistry resulting from years of advanced training beyond dental school and a dedication to a tradition of excellence. We do not outsource our crowns, bridges and veneers to dental labs outside the United States, but rather utilize the best dental laboratories in the United States who use the newest techniques and the highest quality materials in a controlled setting.

Indirect, or natural looking porcelain veneers, are expertly designed by Dr. Tri and Dr. Hulse from digital impressions to compliment your facial features, obtain the desired tooth color, and enhance your smile. To achieve the highest quality veneers a full set of digital photographs are taken to communicate with our expert dental lab. The dental lab then crafts the veneer according to our doctor’s precise specifications. The porcelain veneer is then permanently bonded to your prepared tooth. This procedure can often be completed in just two visits.

In some situations, the dentists may recommend a porcelain laminate veneer such as Lumineers by Cerinate. Because these veneers can be bonded in place without removing the tooth’s natural enamel, they are referred to as “prep-less veneers”. In the well-trained and skillful hands of our doctors and the highly skilled technicians in the Lumineer laboratory these veneers are color-matched and expertly shaped to produce stunning makeover results for your smile. This option is affordable, quick, and produces beautiful and long-lasting results.

Direct veneers, also known as Direct Composite Bonding, are another cosmetic or restorative option. In this case tooth-colored filling material is applied directly onto the tooth’s surface. This treatment can be completed in just one appointment. First Dr. Tri or Dr. Hulse minimally prepares your tooth, and then he applies and artfully sculpts the composite material to the desired contours. When the look is right he bonds or hardens the veneer with a special light. Once the composite veneer is smoothed and polished it blends in perfectly with your other teeth and makes your smile better than ever. One disadvantage of this method is that composite bonding may not be as durable as porcelain veneers or crowns, so they may need to be retouched or replaced at some point in the future. But this is offset by factors of convenience, affordability, and pleasing esthetics.

Veneers may be the cosmetic or restorative dental solution you have been waiting for to makeover your smile – and they may even help you to avoid other kinds of dental treatment such as crowns and/or braces. Please contact our office if you think veneers are the right choice for you or if you have any questions.
