Lumineers An Overview
Lumineers are a type of dental veneers that can be used to improve the appearance of your smile. Lumineers can be used to complete a smile makeover, or address damaged teeth and other cosmetic dental concerns. Lumineers, also known as minimal prep veneers, are considered an alternative to porcelain veneers.
Lumineers can address:
- Chipped Teeth
- Gaps Between Teeth
- Crooked Teeth
- Mishappen Teeth
- Old Dental Work
- Stained or Discolored Teeth
Lumineers require less preparation than traditional dental veneers. With Lumineers, your dentist can virtually eliminate the need for extensive drilling and etching. Lumineers are designed using digital imaging and technology to create custom veneers that meet your cosmetic needs. Lumineers are created using an ultra-thin material that resembles your natural teeth. Lumineers can be shaped, molded, and color match to blend seamlessly with your smile.
Lumineers What to Expect
The Lumineer process begins with a one on one consultation and evaluation of your oral health. After a thorough discussion about cosmetic goals, your dentist will use digital images to design and plan your smile.
Your dentist will explain all aspects of your treatment prior to your appointment. At LIFESmile Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we use high-quality materials to craft your custom cosmetic restoration. If necessary, your dentist may need to remove a small amount of tooth structure. We focus on preserving as much as the natural tooth as possible.
The Lumineers are carefully placed and bonded to the affected teeth. One properly placed, our dentist will polish each veneer to reveal a beautiful luster.
To ensure your Lumineerrs last, your dentist will go over any aftercare instructions and may schedule a follow-up appointment.
