Porcelain Veneers & Lumineers® in Nampa, ID
Enhance Your Smile With Dr. Bingham
Veneers are thin shells that can be bonded to the surface of your teeth to eliminate cosmetic flaws. They’re made from durable, tooth-colored porcelain to ensure a stunning appearance and long-lasting results. Best of all, Dr. Bingham will customize your veneers to blend in seamlessly with your smile.
We recommend veneers for treating the following issues:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
- Gaps between teeth
Our Treatment Process
Enhancing your smile with veneers is a quick and easy process that can be finished in just two appointments. During the first visit, Dr. Bingham will take a detailed impression of your teeth so your veneers can be customized to match their unique size, shape, and color. He’ll also lightly buff the surface of your teeth to ensure a perfect fit.
In about two weeks, your veneers will be ready and you can return to our office to finish the procedure. Dr. Bingham will double-check that the fit and appearance of your veneers are just right before bonding them to your teeth. The bond is created using a strong dental resin that solidifies when Dr. Bingham shines a special light on it.
Once your veneers are in place, you can enjoy all the benefits of a beautiful smile.
Lumineers are an ultra-thin type of veneer that can be applied without removing any of your tooth enamel. This allows you to preserve the structure of your natural tooth, while also eliminating the need for drilling or shots.
As a result of their thinner make-up, Lumineers are more translucent than traditional veneers. However, they may not be a good choice if you have deeply stained or discolored teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long do veneers last?
Typically, veneers will last for seven to fifteen years with proper care. If you practice excellent oral hygiene, they may last even longer. To maximize your veneers, avoid habits that can damage your teeth such as biting your fingernails or chewing on ice cubes.
Is getting veneers painful?
Dr. Bingham will use a local anesthetic to numb your teeth before the procedure, ensuring your treatment is pain-free. Most patients report mild discomfort or none at all after their veneers have been placed. If you do feel anything, it should fade within a few hours. If you’re feeling pain past this point, call our practice and we’ll get to the bottom of it.
What’s the difference between veneers and Lumineers?
Lumineers are a type of veneer that offers a few key differences in the treatment process. These include:
- More translucent appearance
- Don’t require any altering of your natural tooth structure
- No drilling, shots, or temporary acrylics
When you visit Dr. Bingham for a free consultation, he can help you decide which option will provide the best results for your smile.
Will insurance pay for my veneers?
Veneers are a cosmetic treatment, so insurance rarely offers any coverage for them. You may be able to get a portion of your overall cost covered depending on the terms of your plan. The amount of payment will vary based on your provider. If you have any questions about your insurance, we’ll be happy to assist you.
What if my veneer falls off or gets damaged?
If your veneer falls out or gets damaged in any way, don’t attempt to fix it yourself. This will likely only result in further damage and set your treatment back. Instead, store your veneer somewhere safe and try to keep it clean until Dr. Bingham can see you. Rest assured, we’ll always do our best to make ourselves available if you’re experiencing any issues.
