Lumineers® | A Cutting-Edge Approach
By now, many patients have heard of Lumineers®, but not everyone knows the whole story. So, what’s the scoop on this revolutionary treatment? First, let’s take a look at a few cosmetic issues Lumineers can address.
Lumineers are thin, tooth colored shells that are custom made and bonded to the fronts of the teeth. These super-thin restorations can correct the appearance of stained teeth, chipped teeth, gapped teeth, oddly-shaped teeth and much more. And, while the concept may sound simple, the results can be dramatic.
Now, you might be saying to yourself: That sounds exactly like traditional porcelain veneers. Take a moment to read on, and find out what sets Lumineers apart.
Traditional Porcelain Veneers Vs. Lumineers
Traditional porcelain veneers have literally changed the face of cosmetic dentistry. The procedure can rejuvenate the smile, make patients appear younger and most importantly, boost confidence. And, while the placing of veneers is certainly minimally invasive, some patients want to avoid the “buffing” portion of the veneer procedure, the part when we remove a small amount of natural tooth material to compensate for the added thickness of the veneer.
For patients who are looking to avoid this step, Lumineers are often a good option. Because Lumineers are so thin, they require little to no removal of your natural tooth material. As a result, the procedure is often 100% free of discomfort. Finally, Lumineers ensure a rock-solid bond, as they are attached directly to the tooth enamel. What does that sort of strength and durability mean for you? According to the Lumineers website, “...a LUMINEERS smile lasts and looks great for over 20 years.”
In the end, any veneer procedure — regardless of the type — can dramatically enhance a smile. Let us help figure out which type of veneer procedure is right for you! Schedule a consultation today.
