WHAT IS LUMINEERS?
A smile is a universal sign of happiness and can brighten someone’s day, but sometimes it’s hard to want to smile when we’re unhappy with our teeth. Teeth are an important part of our lives and play a significant role in our appearance, which is why many people feel self-conscious about their smile if they have an imperfect dental formula. Lumineers are a popular dental procedure that can help correct this problem and give people back their confidence.
Lumineers are thin, porcelain veneers that are placed over the existing teeth to change their color, shape, size, or length. The procedure is minimally invasive and can make a major difference in the appearance of the lips, giving the person a natural-looking smile that they can be proud of. If you’re unhappy with your teeth, Lumineers may be a good option for you.
HOW ARE LUMINEERS PLACED?
At our dental office, we specialize in the application of porcelain veneers. Veneers are a type of dental prosthetic that are used to cover up imperfections in the teeth. They are made out of thin sheets of porcelain that are custom-fit to the patient’s teeth and they can be used to correct a wide range of aesthetic issues. Compared to other types of veneers, the ones used in this procedure do not require the patient’s teeth to be ground down or shaved before the veneers are applied. This makes the procedure much less invasive than other types of dental work. Additionally, porcelain veneers are very natural-looking, and they can be matched to the patient’s existing tooth color. The existing tooth color may show through the thin veneer, but our dental professionals have the expertise and experience to perform the procedure flawlessly. Within a short time, the patient can gain back their confidence with a boosted self-esteem.
Lumineers are made from an ultra-thin material that can be applied directly to your teeth without the need for drilling or extractions. As a result, the entire process can be completed in as little as two visits to our dental office. During the first visit, our dentist will look at your teeth and decide the best course of action. The first visit involves some consultation and the dentist having a look at your teeth to know how he or she can help. The second visit involves the dentist placing the thin veneers on your teeth and securing them into place. Lumineers can be used to correct a wide variety of aesthetic concerns, such as gaps, misshapen teeth, and even discoloration.
