3 Questions to Ask Before Getting Lumineers
Lumineers, the super-thin veneers that we use to make your teeth look just like new, are a fantastic option for patients looking for an enhanced smile through cosmetic dentistry. However, we always recommend learning about the procedure and the differences between traditional veneers and Lumineers. We strongly believe that it’s essential to thoroughly educate yourself before deciding to complete a treatment plan.
As a Lumineers provider, we have the answers to the following questions, commonly asked by those seeking Lumineers as a solution for their dental needs:
1. What are the differences between the kinds of tooth veneers?
Lumineers are even thinner than veneers (about the thickness of a contact lens), which typically eliminates the need to remove enamel before the procedures, ensuring that the treatment most often stays reversible. Lumineers are also more transparent, which creates a better cosmetic dentistry appearance. Finally, Lumineers are more durable, lasting up to 15 years or even longer if properly maintained.
2. Would Lumineers be a good solution to my dental problems?
This answer depends on your oral and health history and the state of your smile. It’s always best to schedule a free consultation to receive specific answers unique to your individual needs.
3. What happens during the Lumineers procedure?
Lumineers are considered a ‘no-prep procedure,’ as there is not any drilling required before the Lumineers are placed on your teeth. This means that you won’t need anesthetic. The Lumineers are so thin that we can bond them directly to your teeth without any trimming before the veneers are placed.
In the end, Lumineers are a particularly good treatment option for people with fairly straight teeth who are looking for minor color corrections or improvement.
