Traditional dental veneers are non-reversible and can be very invasive to your natural tooth enamel. Lumineers offers a non-invasive alternative to traditional dental veneers; one that is pain-free and can transform your entire smile in just a couple of short visits. Best of all, they can be removed at any time without affecting your healthy tooth underneath. There are no shots, drills or painful procedures needed when you choose to have a smile-makeover with Lumineers.
Dentists use Lumineers to correct the appearance of teeth that are:
Lumineers are made to function and last as long as 20 years, so that you won’t have to be concerned about them. The ultra-thin, natural appearance is placed right over your existing tooth to recreate a smile that looks and feels natural, white, straight and beautiful. Because they’re so thin, the transparency of the material creates the illusion that they are natural tooth enamel. They’re comfortable and feel as if they were normal teeth.
The treatment process involves an initial visit with your dentist to discuss what you would like to change about your current smile, dental impressions, then selecting the shape and color of your Lumineers. This information along with your impressions are sent to a Lumineers laboratory where your customized no-prep veneers are made. Once finished, you return for your second appointment with your dentist to have the Lumineers tried on and then bonded to your teeth. This visit is relatively short and completely comfortable. When the application is finished, you can walk out of the office with the beautiful smile that you’ve always dreamed of having.
