Lumineers are a brand of veneers that are particularly thin. Veneers are strips of porcelain that are permanently bonded to your teeth to give you a whiter smile. In some cases, they can also be used in place of braces to conceal minor gaps in the teeth. Lumineers can be placed with minimal reduction of the tooth surface. Lumineers are also highly translucent, so they are particularly effective at mimicking the natural shade of your tooth while adding a subtle whitening effect to make your smile appear brighter.
Lumineers are produced by the DenMat Lab, one of the largest manufacturers of dental materials in the world. Applying Lumineers to your teeth takes just two appointments. Talk to our dentists to learn whether this is a good option for your smile.

Veneers are porcelain strips that offer the durability and appearance of natural teeth. You can use veneers to cover a gap, a chip, a fracture, or misalignment. You may also use veneers simply to get a permanently whiter smile. To apply your veneers, your dentist will need to remove a small amount of enamel from the tooth to give the veneer room to adhere to the tooth while still offering a natural appearance.
Veneers are custom-made to fit your smile, so you will get a porcelain piece that is exactly suited to the look you want. If you have a minor issue with your smile that you’d like to cover with this durable product, our dentists can get you started on the path to perfect-looking teeth with the application of veneers.
In-Office Tooth Whitening
Tooth whitening is a popular cosmetic procedure that will give you a brighter smile, removing stains and lightening the shade of the tooth. A professional tooth whitening procedure with your dentist will yield more dramatic results than using at-home treatments. Dentists can use a stronger whitening formula than what’s available over-the-counter, giving you noticeable results in a short amount of time. If your teeth aren’t the shade you’d like, an in-office tooth whitening visit may be an affordable option.
At North Shore Dental Group, we offer Spa-Dent whitening. Spa-Dent whitening uses a gel product. Your dentist will apply this to the tooth and shine a blue and red LED light onto it to activate the product. This induces cellular stimulation that will penetrate the tooth’s porous enamel safely to break down stains lurking beneath the surface.
If you’re looking for whiter teeth without veneers, in-office tooth whitening is a good choice. Speak with our dentists to learn more about our options and determine which product is the best fit.
