Lumineer Dental Procedures
LUMINEERS are Porcelain Veneers That Do Not Require Removing Tooth Structure. LUMINEERS are a terrific cosmetic solution for permanently stained, chipped, discolored, misaligned teeth, or even to revitalize old crown and bridgework. LUMINEERS are porcelain veneers that can be made as thin as a contact lens and are placed over existing teeth without the removal of sensitive tooth structure that traditional veneers require. LUMINEERS can only be made from patented cerinate porcelain and can only be applied by a LUMINEERS-certified dentist. In just two visits to the dentist, LUMINEERS provides a custom-made smile clinically proven to last up to 20 years.
Frequently Asked Questions
Lumineer Dental may be right for you if you are looking for an alternative to crowns and caps. Veneers can help you if you have gaps between your teeth or teeth that are broken, chipped, irregularly shaped or misaligned. To find out more about whether Lumineer Dental are right for you, contact a cosmetic dentist to schedule a consultation.
Before Lumineer Dental can be placed on the teeth, the surface of the teeth must be prepared for bonding. After administering a local anesthetic, your dentist will buff away approximately half a millimeter from the surface of the teeth. You’ll then bite into a mold that will be used to form your Lumineers in a dental lab. When the veneers are ready, you’ll be asked to return to have them fitted, bonded and adjusted for shape and color.
There is no special care required for dental veneers, and normal brushing and flossing can be resumed immediately. Because veneers are usually placed over the course of two appointments, it is normal to experience some sensitivity between the first and second visit when the teeth have been reduced in preparation for bonding.
