It’s no secret that a smile is the first thing someone will notice about you. If you don’t smile because you’re embarrassed or ashamed of the current state of your teeth there are certain options.
Whether your smile is slightly off or no longer as white as you’d like, Lumineers® is an extremely thin porcelain slip that is placed over the teeth. Making your teeth look more even and correcting issues with color, this option requires no surgery or invasive techniques.
Building your confidence and giving you the smile that you’ve always wanted ***Insert Clinic*** has great options for you!
Who’s Able to Get Lumineers®
When discussing your options; we will evaluate if you are a great candidate for Lumineers®. Those who have an otherwise healthy smile (teeth, gums, and bone structure) are great candidates. For those who do have tooth decay or gum diseases, we offer treatment that can correct the issues making you eligible for Lumineers®.
Thanks to Lumineers® as a solution to many common cosmetic dental issues.
Lumineers® can treat the following:
Large spaces and gaps between teeth
Crooked or misaligned teeth
Discoloration or stained teeth
Unnatural bridges or crowns
Advantages of Lumineers®
Lumineers® are thin and don’t require much downtime after the procedures. Rather than invasive surgery, once theses porcelain covers are placed, they usually last for 20 years. As a long-term less painful solution, many prefer this technique to achieve beautiful smiles.
Lumineers® are completely reversible for those who may want to have them removed. With no injections or drilling, they are exceptionally strong and as thin as a contact lens. Patients can have multiple teeth covered during one visit; however, it will take two visits to fully complete the procedure.
Thanks to the use of Cerinate®, a strong porcelain-based substance, these are not only strong and thin, but they can also be modified in color to achieve a natural look.
When compared with traditional veneers that require some dental drilling, Lumineers® reduces this part of the procedure and therefore takes less time in the dentist’s office. As there is no need for anesthesia, drilling, and sometimes minor etching, this is a great option that will save you time and discomfort.
You will attend an initial session in which we assess your current situation. We will do bite impressions and X-rays to better understand the fit you will need. We will then help you to determine the color and transparency that will help you to decide on the look of the final product.
During this initial exam, our dentist will ensure there are no signs of decay or infection to ensure you will not have underlying problems in the future. It is at this time that the order is sent to the lab to have your Lumineers® crafted.
The second appointment you will have is where your teeth will be fitted, and the porcelain sleeves placed. As the Lumineers® bond to your teeth, some bonding agent may overflow, this will be removed using a beveled featheredge margin. Our dentist will then polish the Lumineers for the finished look.
