Lumineers: Your Instant Smile Makeover
Lumineers are a painless, safe cosmetic solution for people who are self-conscious about their smile’s appearance. As compared to porcelain veneers, which may take more than a week to be placed, Lumineers can be placed in no time at all without the use of anesthesia. Lumineers are ultra-thin and completely imitate the appearance of natural enamel. Another reason they are so popular is because they are extremely durable and can last for as long as 20 years.
Lumineers are basically a kind of dental veneer made from ultra-thin Cerinate porcelain that can be used to improve the smile aesthetically or restore it structurally. They can fill gaps between the teeth, eliminate stains, or strengthen damaged teeth. The end-result of the procedure gives people the ability to smile both proudly and often.
Lumineers: The Procedure
After you have consulted with your dentist, the procedure to place Lumineers is a simple one. At first, a mapping of your teeth structure will be created using CEREC-technology. Thereafter, a mutual decision between you and your dentist will help finalize the Lumineers’ final look. These specifications are then sent to a dental-technician who will customize your Lumineers accordingly.
After they have been made, your dentist will then bond them to your teeth. During this, your dentist will try to preserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible. You will be given the option of using sedation, and local anesthesia will be used to numb the tooth-area. Once the Lumineers have been bonded to your teeth, they will be shaped and polished. Lumineers are a quick-fix dental solution to bring back your original smile. The procedure is fantastic for anyone with damaged or discolored teeth. Also, you need not be worried about any risks involved. Before you undergo the procedure, your dentist will explain the entire treatment to you in detail.
