Choose Lumineers for a confident smile
Veneers conceal dental imperfections, while making teeth appear whiter and better aligned. Working as thin layers of material that are affixed to the teeth, veneers can also be used to lengthen short teeth. Originally, veneers were temporary “quick fixes” designed for Hollywood actors and actresses. Today, dental veneers can be expected to last for decades! Lumineers in particular, have revolutionized cosmetic dentistry.
Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers can last for 20 to 30 years before requiring touch-ups. Patients even get a limited lifetime warranty. In addition to being durable, Lumineers make gorgeous smiles! They’re exceptionally thin and translucent resembling the natural tooth enamel, and are customized for each individual patient.
Here are a few frequently asked questions about Lumineers. For more information, call our office today!
Q: What can Lumineers do for me?
A: Lumineers fulfill various needs. First, they can cover chips, discolorations, and other imperfections on individual teeth. Second, they can eliminate the aesthetic need for braces. By lengthening teeth and filling in gaps, Lumineers can make teeth appear more aligned. Third, Lumineers can simply be used for their long-lasting, natural-looking white sheen.
Q: What are Lumineers made of?
A: Lumineers are made of porcelain, a ceramic material.
Q: How are Lumineers better than the competition?
A: Lumineers don’t just look better than other veneers, but they’re much easier to apply, pain-free, and keep teeth intact. Because other veneers are significantly thicker, they actually require a serious reduction in tooth size; meaning shots, drills, and discomfort for you. With Lumineers being just 0.2 millimeters thick, tooth reductions are rarely needed. Furthermore, Lumineers involve no post-placement discomfort. Patients can walk out the dental office looking and feeling fantastic!
Q: How many office visits are involved?
A: Patients typically schedule two appointments. During the first appointment a mold is made of the patient’s mouth, and a Lumineer shade is selected. The custom-fit, custom-color veneers are then applied during the second visit.
