Dental lumineers are ultra-thin coverings that can transform your smile in as a little as two visits. They can can correct a wide range of issues including discoloration, misshapen or damaged teeth, gaps, spaces, and more.
Like conventional dental veneers, lumineers are applied directly to natural teeth, however thanks to their ultra-thin design, they require less removal of enamel in the placement process. Keeping more of your natural tooth enamel provides a more comfortable procedure and maintains more of your natural tooth for a strong foundation and better health.
Lumineers also more closely resemble natural teeth in color and appearance thanks to the translucent nature of the material. Lumineers are also longer lasting than conventional veneers. While conventional veneers last an average of 5 to 10 years, lumineers can last as long as 20 years with proper care!
Lumineers can be placed in as little as two short visits. First, an oral exam determines the fit and shape of your lumineers using photos, X-rays, and impressions. New Image Dentistry & Implants carefully selects the color and size so that your smile looks both beautiful and natural. We will also discuss how you would like your smile to look and what to expect after placement.
After this appointment, your pictures and impressions are sent to a state-of-the-art laboratory. There, your custom lumineers are created to match your desired look and provide a comfortable fit.
On your second visit, your lumineers are placed by a trained specialist. The teeth are carefully prepared for placement using minimally invasive techniques. The lumineers are secured in place using a bright light and in just a short time, you have a brand new smile you can share for years to come!
The process is fast, safe and an effective way to create a beautiful, natural-looking smile that can last for decades. To learn more give us a call. We’ll be happy to help you take the next step in transforming your smile!
