Transform Your Smile with Lumineers

Posted in Veneers

Smiling is a natural way to express pleasurable emotions, but for many people the thought of revealing their teeth by smiling causes a negative emotion. Your smile often gives people a lasting impression of who you are and how you make them feel. If you feel self-conscious about your teeth and hold back your smile, people can often get the wrong impression of you. Don’t let how you feel about your teeth hinder you or hold you back any longer.

Lumineers are a fantastic way to transform your smile. Lumineers offer people a painless transformation of their smiles. With faster results, many adults are choosing to straighten and brighten their smiles with Lumineers.

In most cases, you can have the smile you have dreamed about in only two dental visits. At your first appointment, your dentist will take an impression of your upper and lower teeth and have those molds sent to a Lumineers laboratory. At your second appointment, your dentist will ensure that your Lumineers have a proper fit and will then bond them into place. Your teeth will be moderately etched to prepare for placement, and then they will be bonded one by one to your Lumineers. After placement, your dentist will check to make sure your bite is balanced to avoid chipping.

Then you will leave the dentist office with a brand new smile! Your teeth will look as though you have had extensive dental work, but will have simply been transformed by Lumineers. Don’t hide behind your closed smile any longer. Show people your true personality and invite them to know you by having a confident smile.
