Lumineers Q & A
What are Lumineers?
Lumineers are thin shells that fit perfectly over your natural teeth to improve their appearance and help you achieve a vibrant smile. Non-invasive Lumineers look, feel, and function like natural teeth and can make your smile more flattering.
What are the benefits of Lumineers?
Lumineers can improve the shape, color, size, and texture of teeth that are:
- Too small
Lumineers are similar to dental veneers, but Dr. Shouhed doesn’t have to remove dental enamel prior to placing Lumineers. For this reason, Lumineers are less invasive and reversible.
Are Lumineers right for me?
To find out if you’re a good candidate for Lumineers, Dr. Shouhed and his staff review your oral health history, examine your teeth and gums, discuss your desired outcome, and might take dental X-rays. If you have tooth decay or gum disease, the team can first treat these oral health problems prior to bonding Lumineers to your teeth.
What should I expect during Lumineers placement?
When you arrive at Smile Perfector Dental Group to receive Lumineers, you relax in a comfortable dental chair. During your first visit, Dr. Shouhed and his team take impressions of your upper and lower teeth and send the information to a dental lab where technicians create custom-fit Lumineers. You can help pick the shade of your Lumineers.
When they arrive from the lab, Dr. Shouhed bonds them to the front of your natural teeth, where they remain long-term. There’s no need to remove tooth enamel, no shots, and no drilling associated with Lumineer placement.
How can I care for my new Lumineers?
Take care of your new Lumineers by brushing your teeth two times daily with fluoride toothpaste. Floss every day, avoid chewing on hard objects, and wear a mouthguard if you grind your teeth at night. Call Smile Perfector Dental Group if your Lumineers get damaged, and see the team every six months for routine dental cleanings and checkups.
Don’t live with unsightly teeth if they make you feel self-conscious when Lumineers can perfect your beautiful smile. Call Smile Perfector Dental Group for a consultation or book an appointment online to find out if Lumineers are right for you.
