Lumineers Q & A
What are Lumineers?
Lumineers are an excellent way to enhance the appearance of your smile without surgery, harsh chemicals, or painful treatments. Made from ultra-thin porcelain, Lumineers fit over your teeth to create a stunning smile.
What cosmetic dentistry issues can Lumineers solve?
Lumineers can give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Dr. Jenkins and the team at A Woman’s Touch Dentistry use Lumineers to solve many cosmetic concerns, including:
- Gaps between teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Stained teeth
They can also apply Lumineers to improve the appearance of unnatural-looking bridges and crowns.
What are the benefits of Lumineers?
Unlike dental veneers that last an average of 10-15 years, Lumineers can be left in place for up to 20 years. Additionally, Lumineers are much thinner than traditional veneers, about the same thickness as a contact lens.
The ultra-thin material makes the application process much easier. When you get traditional dental veneers, Dr. Jenkins or a member of her team must remove enough enamel from the surface of your tooth to apply the veneer. This prep work is irreversible, and usually means you need to continue getting veneers placed for the rest of your life.
Lumineers are thin enough to avoid this extensive, often painful preparation. This means you can have the Lumineers removed at any time to expose your natural set of teeth.
Who is a good candidate for Lumineers?
If you’re considering dental veneers, Lumineers are a high-quality option. However, not everyone is a good candidate for Lumineers. Before you get Lumineers, the underlying teeth and gums must be healthy.
Dr. Jenkins or a member of her team perform a complete dental exam and review your medical history before determining whether Lumineers are right for you. They may take digital X-rays and bite impressions to measure the way your teeth fit together.
If you have gum disease or tooth decay, they recommend the appropriate dental treatment to get before getting Lumineers. If your gums and teeth are healthy, they work with you to customize the color and shape of your Lumineers.
In only two visits, you can have a brand new smile. To learn more about Lumineers, call A Woman’s Touch Dentistry or book an appointment online.
