The Luxury Of Lumineers

Designed to give patients a beautiful smile with a simple, pain-free process, Lumineers are easily one of the most requested veneer systems today. For front teeth that are chipped, cracked, broken, or even stained, Lumineers are Cerinate Porcelain coverings that are as thin as a contact lens. While they are comfortable and aesthetically pleasing, they require minimal preparation. Thus, it’s easy to see why many are enjoying the Luxury of Lumineers.

Without a doubt, Lumineers represent a unique advancement in dentistry, but not every dental professional is trained in applying them. If you’re wondering if Lumineers are suitable for you, it’s a good idea to make the following requests:

  • Ask your dentist if they will share their case library with you. This is simply a collection of before and after photos, along with notes regarding each specific case.
  • Ask about the type of veneer that will be used. Lumineers are exclusive, and knowing where yours will come from is key.
  • Ask about cost and payment options.

An experienced and skilled dental professional in placing Lumineers will gladly provide you with the answers you need, giving you the confidence to move forward with healthy expectations.

The Lumineers Procedure

As a patient, you play an important role in achieving your new smile. Initially, at your first visit, the dentist will take an exact mold of your smile. Next, you will work alongside the dentist to determine the best shade of white for your Lumineers. While waiting for them to be customized, you’re awarded the freedom of not having to wear temporaries. Then, at the second visit, your Lumineers will be applied. No shots. No drilling. No mess. No pain. With proper care, you can expect your Lumineers to last up to 20 years.
