Porcelain Veneers Jenkintown
Enjoy the Benefits of a Beautiful, White Smile with LUMINEERS®
A beautiful smile can make a lasting impression on others and have a positive impact on your self-esteem and confidence. Unfortunately, the effects of aging, as well as dietary habits, genetics, and trauma, can diminish a smile's natural luster. With porcelain veneers, available at the Jenkintown cosmetic dentistry practice of Dr. Michael Weiss, we can correct aesthetic flaws and craft a smile that is ideal for you.
If you are seeking a whiter, brighter smile, we offer a range of cosmetic dentistry options to meet your needs, including LUMINEERS® and our "Flagship" traditional porcelain veneers.
Cosmetic dentistry is evolving toward more conservative types of treatment. Our beautiful traditional veneers often are fabricated in a non-invasive method similar to Lumineers.
We are staunch advocates of veneers at our practice - they are an effective, reliable, and durable solution to a range of dental complications, including chips, cracks, discoloration, and minor tooth misalignment. The process for placing LUMINEERS® dental veneers is also non-invasive, making it an attractive alternative to many other treatment options.

LUMINEERS® Porcelain Veneers - Overview
Porcelain veneers are dental restorations that are placed on the front surfaces of teeth to mask aesthetic flaws, including gaps, cracks, chips, and discoloration. Crooked, misaligned, and misshapen teeth can also be corrected with porcelain veneers, negating the need for more extensive treatment in many cases. Wafer-thin shells made from porcelain, veneers are durable and natural looking. The porcelain allows a small amount of light to pass through the outer surface, much like natural tooth enamel, and is strong enough to withstand the rigors of years of use. For these reasons and many others, porcelain veneers are a popular choice among patients looking to revitalize their smiles.
The placement process for LUMINEERS® is non-invasive and can be accomplished in a few visits to our Jenkintown dental office. A mold will be made of your teeth so that your permanent LUMINEERS® can be fabricated in a dental laboratory to your exact specifications. As all LUMINEERS® prosthetics are fabricated in California to the highest standards, this process can take several weeks. When the veneers are complete, Dr Weiss will try them in to make sure everything is fitting perfectly.
Risks and Benefits
While the placement of traditional porcelain veneers require that a small amount of enamel be removed from the outer layer of the tooth, LUMINEERS® can be placed without such preparation in some situations.
As the placement of porcelain veneers is minimally invasive, risks and complications are rare. That being said, the placement of traditional veneers does require the removal of dental material, a process that is irreversible. LUMINEERS® eliminates this need. Providing many of the benefits of traditional veneers - aesthetics, functionality and durability, the treatment is completely reversible if it doesn't satisfy the patient's needs - LUMINEERS® are a tremendous option for individuals who are interested in improving the appearance of their smile. If you are interested in revitalizing your appearance, LUMINEERS® may be right for you.
The cost of treatment with LUMINEERS® porcelain veneers varies from patient to patient. During a consultation at our Jenkintown dental practice, we can discuss your needs and goals, as well as the factors that will influence the cost of treatment in your specific case. For some patients, veneers are not a suitable treatment option. If this is true in your case, we will advise you of your alternatives and make recommendations based on your needs.
