If you are someone who would like to transform your smile in only two dentist visits, finding out more about how this improved smile option can work for you is your first step in having the smile of your dreams.

What are Lumineers?

Lumineers are a thin porcelain shell that your dentist will specifically design to fit over your teeth. Lumineers are a great choice anytime someone wants to cover their teeth for cosmetic reasons, which is often due to the teeth being stained, chipped, cracked and/or broken. They are also a great choice for dental patients who are simply looking for a brighter, more uniform smile.

If there happens to be any gaps between the teeth, the dentist will be able to shape the porcelain shell to close or minimize these gaps. If you are ready to start smiling with confidence, then ontact us for a consultation appointment today.

How do Lumineers work?

While Lumineers are similar to traditional veneers in that they are both attached to the tooth for a better appearance, they are thinner and more translucent, making for a more natural smile. Veneers are also much thicker and require a tooth to be ground down in order for them to be permanently attached to the tooth. We can attach Lumineers in only two dental visits. The Lumineers can last up to 20 years, which is pretty impressive.

After we attach the Lumineers, the patient is able to still enjoy eating all the foods they like without worrying about any negative effects. Depending on what the dental patient’s current oral situation is, as well as the overall condition of the teeth, we will determine the most effective course of action.
