Lumineers isn’t just the name of a popular folk/indie band. In fact, Lumineers is actually the name of a popular brand of porcelain veneers that we at Lerner & Lemongello like to use. If your teeth have started to decay, if they are severely discolored, or if they are simply misaligned, you may want to consider getting veneers. By giving you a near permanent solution to your cosmetic dental problems, Lumineers will help you gain your confidence back once again. Read on to learn more.
There are a variety of different veneer options available on the market. And although we do encourage some of our patients to try different brands, Lumineers are one of our go-to options due to their thin, yet strong, texture. Additionally, because of their thin texture, Lumineers look more natural than other brands of veneers because they take on a more natural looking enamel coloring.
Who Are Good Candidates?
Just as with any sort of cosmetic dental procedure, not everyone will be deemed a good candidate. However, if you suffer from the following problems or issues, then you will likely be a good candidate for Lumineers:
- Stained or discolored teeth that reject whitening products
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Small teeth
- Misshapen Teeth
How Does It Work?
Unlike dental treatments such as dental implants, veneers are glued onto your existing teeth. During your initial consultation with Lerner & Lemongello, you will be fitted for dental veneers. The great thing about Lumineers dental veneers is that they are available in different sizes, shapes, and colors— so that they blend in with your other teeth. As the first step in the process, your natural teeth will be filed down so that they are significantly smaller. Once they have been filed down, the dental veneer will be placed on top of your natural tooth and will be glued down. The process is then repeated until you have your perfect, new smile.
