Lumineers porcelain slips – much thinner than veneers – go over the visible surface of your teeth, giving you the beautiful white smile you want and deserve. This can boost your confidence – and your chances. When your teeth look bright and youthful, you may have more success at love and better chances in your job search. Without surgery, pain or toxic chemicals, Lumineers can very literally change your life for the better.
And unlike veneers, Lumineers can last two decades. Or if you prefer, these thin slips can be removed in the future and the natural tooth behind is intact. Could this innovative cosmetic dentistry procedure be right for you? In just 2 appointments, our team at Brighton Dental here in San Diego can dramatically improve your smile.
Lumineers Solve Cosmetic Dental Problems
If your teeth and gums are healthy, you may be a good candidate for image-changing Lumineers. If you have dental and oral health problems, Dr. Woods will have to take care of the problems you have before applying Lumineers. Of course, some people aren’t good candidates for these slips, and others have issues with the look of their teeth that can’t be fixed with Lumineers. Dr. Woods will discuss your situation with you and offer other options, if necessary.
Lumineers are a great choice for:
• Closing large gaps between teeth
• Making poorly aligned teeth look straighter
• Improving misshapen teeth
• Making uneven teeth and gums look better
• Covering old crowns and bridges that don’t look right
• And more.
And what’s more, Lumineers take care of all these cosmetic dental issues with no pain, no damaging etching or other alternations to your teeth and no anesthesia. Plus, these covers or slips are so thin and unobtrusive that your speech and eating will feel normal from day one. If you’re like most people who get Lumineers, you’ll forget they’re there very quickly and won’t think about them at all until you look in the mirror and see the positive results.
Cosmetic Dentistry That’s Strong And Durable
When you choose Lumineers, you’re choosing a cosmetic dental procedure with results that can last 20 years or perhaps even more. There’s no need for drilling or injections, so there’s no discomfort. The Lumineers can be placed in just two dental visits, and they can be placed individually. That means if you have only one or two teeth that don’t look good, you only have to get one or two Lumineers slips – not a whole mouth full. The results are immediate – and since the slips are about the same thickness as a contact lens, you won’t notice them in your mouth. Later, the Lumineers can be removed if necessary with no damage left behind – meaning the procedure is completely reversible.
And you don’t have to worry about strength. This cosmetic dental choice is made from cerinate porcelain that’s unlikely to break or chip. A color and opaqueness is available to exactly match nearby teeth or achieve the desired new look as well.
Getting Lumineers starts with visiting Dr. Woods and our team here at Brighton Dental in San Diego for x-rays and bite impressions. Any decay or gum disease must first be treated. Then, we can work with you to choose exactly what color and transparency level you need to match surrounding teeth or create a youthful and beautiful new smile. Then, we send the details to a lab where Lumineers are made especially for you. On a second visit, we place them – with little etching and no drilling so there’s no damage to your teeth.
