Lumineers are ultra-thin, custom-made porcelain shells that are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. They are a popular alternative to traditional veneers because they require minimal preparation of your natural tooth structure. This means no drilling or shaving down of your teeth is necessary, making Lumineers a more conservative and less invasive option.
The process of getting Lumineers is a simple and painless one that can transform your smile in just a few visits to the dentist. The first step is consultation, where you discuss your expectations and goals with your dentist. They will evaluate your teeth and determine if Lumineers are the right solution for you. Next, impressions of your teeth will be taken to create custom-made Lumineers that fit perfectly over your natural teeth. Unlike traditional veneers, there is no need for extensive tooth preparation or drilling. This means less discomfort and preservation of healthy tooth structure.
Once the Lumineers are ready, they will be bonded onto your teeth using a special adhesive. Your dentist will make any necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit and natural appearance. The entire process is minimally invasive and can usually be completed within two to three dental visits.
When it comes to enhancing your smile, there are several options available. One popular choice is getting dental veneers. However, traditional veneers are not the only option out there. Lumineers offer a transformative solution with unique benefits.
