A captivating smile is a powerful asset, radiating confidence and leaving a lasting impression on others. For those seeking a smile makeover, dental veneers are a popular cosmetic solution that can transform the appearance of teeth and enhance overall facial aesthetics. At Noelck and Associates, veneers are thin, custom-made shells bonded to teeth' front surface to conceal imperfections and create a flawless smile. They are meticulously crafted to resemble your teeth' natural color, shape, and size, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking result. Veneers are a versatile and transformative cosmetic dental solution that can address many dental imperfections, providing a remarkable smile makeover that dazzles and delights.

The Procedures of Dental Veneers

Before the veneers can be placed, a small amount of enamel must be removed from the front surface of the teeth receiving veneers. This step is necessary to create space for the veneers and ensure a seamless fit. The amount of enamel removed is typically minimal, and local anesthesia may be used to ensure your comfort during the process. Once the teeth are prepared, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be used to create custom-made veneers that perfectly match your natural teeth' size, shape, and color.

While the permanent veneers are fabricated in a dental laboratory, temporary veneers may be placed over your prepared teeth to protect them and maintain your smile's aesthetics. The impressions of your teeth will be sent to a dental laboratory where skilled technicians will fabricate your custom veneers. The fabrication process may take a few days, depending on the material chosen. Once your permanent veneers are ready, you'll return to your dentist's office for the final veneer bonding process. Your dentist will check the fit and appearance of the veneers and make any necessary adjustments before permanently bonding them to your teeth using dental cement. The veneers will be carefully positioned and bonded individually, ensuring a precise and seamless result.

Types of Dental Veneers

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are the most widely known and popular type of dental veneers. Crafted from high-quality dental ceramic, porcelain veneers are prized for their natural appearance and ability to mimic the translucency and shine of real teeth. Porcelain veneers offer exceptional aesthetics and durability, making them ideal for smile transformations requiring long-lasting results.

Composite Veneers

Composite veneers, also known as direct veneers, are made from a tooth-colored composite resin material. Unlike porcelain veneers, which are fabricated in a dental laboratory and then bonded to the teeth, the dentist directly applies and sculpts composite veneers onto the teeth during a single dental visit.


Lumineers are a specific brand of ultra-thin porcelain veneers known for their minimal preparation technique. They require little to no tooth reduction, making them a reversible and conservative option for smile enhancement. Lumineers are custom-made to provide a natural appearance and can be an excellent choice for patients who prefer a non-invasive veneer option.
