Taking care of your teeth can be a hard job. No matter how often you brush and floss, or how careful you are to avoid injury, your teeth can suffer painful and unsightly cracks or chips.
When this happens you might want the help of dental veneers, but it’s important to know that not all Veneers are created equal. At Center for Beautiful Smiles we know how important it is to make sure you know all your options when taking care of your teeth, which is why today we’re telling you everything you need to know about Lumineers.
What Are Lumineers?
Lumineers are a special kind of dental veneer known for being particularly thin, made of incredibly small porcelain shells. Unlike standard dental veneers, which can be many millimeters thick, Lumineers are only .2 millimeters thin. This leads to a variety of benefits that Lumineers have over traditional dental veneers.
What Are The Benefits of Lumineers?
Unlike most veneers, Lumineers usually don’t require your teeth to be prepared through extensive methods like grinding down or drilling holes in your teeth. This means that Lumineers don’t require removing large amounts of your healthy tooth to be affixed.
Furthermore, because they’re so thin, Lumineers can replicate the look of enamel much better than traditional veneers can. They’re also incredibly durable, and can last up to 20 years. But, unlike most dental veneers, the process is completely reversible. Lumineers can be completely removed if necessary.
Are They Difficult To Get?
Not at all! Getting Lumineers takes no more than 2 quick appointments. The first appointment consists of your dentist taking an impression of your upper and lower teeth. That impression is then sent to a lab and your Lumineers are prepared.
During your second appointment, your dentist will make sure that your veneers fit properly, etch your teeth slightly so that the veneers can be attached, and adhere the veneers to your teeth one by one. After that, you can get on with your day!
In short, Lumineers are an easy, durable, and powerful way to give you the smile you want. Even better, we’re happy to offer them at Center for Beautiful Smiles! All you have to do is book a consultation with one of our dedicated professionals, and we’ll be able to get you fitted for your Lumineers right then and there, and give you that perfect smile with just one more visit.
