At Wagner Dentistry in Las Vegas, NV, our goal is to provide patients with the healthiest smile possible. To do that means working with each patient to create a tailored plan of general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. In our dental office, we are happy to provide personalized solutions for a wide variety of needs, including the use of porcelain veneers.
Porcelain Veneers Basics
Remarkably durable laminates that fit over an individual tooth to conceal problems such as chipping, staining, gaps, or uneven lengths, the porcelain veneers we use in our dentist office are patented Lumineers. Though other kinds of porcelain veneers are acceptable, Lumineers® offer a superior result. This is why Drs. Wade and Wayne Wagner prefer them for their patients.
Thinner than typical porcelain veneers, Lumineers® are remarkably strong and durable. They have an entirely natural appearance and are created to match the existing teeth. Because they are small and thin, they are usually easier to apply, and do not require a patient to have any tooth reduction done prior to application.

Placing the Veneers
When you meet with one of the dentists in our Las Vegas office, we will consult with you about your dental needs. If all of your general dentistry is up to date and your smile is as healthy as possible, we will review the process required for porcelain veneers to be applied.
It takes two visits to accomplish the application. The first is when a mold of your teeth and gums is made, and you work with one of our dentists to determine the proper shade for your Lumineers. Your molds are then sent to a special lab where the individual porcelain veneers are custom crafted. Once received, you return to the dental office and one of the dentists checks them for shape, shade and size before applying them.
This is a painless process, which is unlike most other porcelain veneer applications. The reason is simple – Lumineers are much thinner but incredibly strong, with an average life span of 20 years. This means that a patient may not need any of the tooth structure altered (through grinding or drilling) and that they will need no numbing injections or experience discomfort at all.
Traditionally, veneers meant losing a lot of the original tooth, needles to ensure no pain was felt during the process, and the problems associated with such decisions. With Lumineers, there is none of this and you will feel and look great the moment they are painlessly placed.
