Transform Your Smile Painlessly! Lumineers Look Great for A Lifetime!

Lumineers in Lewis Center & Columbus, OH

While there are many cosmetic dentistry services that allow dental professionals to improve a patient’s smile, many people wish to fix teeth with veneers. Lumineers® are similar to traditional veneers but require less preparation and little to no removal of enamel from the surface of the tooth. Both types of cosmetic dentistry veneers cover the visible portions of the teeth, repair imperfections, straighten and lengthen teeth, conceal stains or discoloration, and are naturally stain resistant. However, there are distinct differences between the two types of veneers.

The LumineersĀ® Difference

Like traditional veneers, Lumineers® are designed to give you a beautiful, natural smile. However, unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers® do not require any shots, drilling, or pain. Most importantly, because little to no enamel is removed from the teeth, Lumineers® are reversible! Lumineers® are custom made like traditional porcelain veneers to fit each individual’s mouth. However, Lumineers® are ultra-thin, being only about 0.2 millimeters thick, and highly translucent. This translucency allows them to replicate the natural appearance of enamel. They are also very durable and can last up to 20 years. The procedure takes only two office visits and approximately one hour to place the Lumineers®. There is no pain involved in the procedure, completely eliminating the need for needles and local anesthesia. After the procedure, there will generally be no sensitivity or soreness.

Am I a Good Candidate for Lumineers?

You will need to see your doctor to determine if you are a good candidate for Lumineers®. Those who have very dark stains or discoloration will not likely be good candidates, as the dark color may show through the ultra-thin layer of Lumineers®. Also, those with a very “tight bite” or who grind or clench their teeth are usually not good candidates to fix teeth with veneers. This is because the constant grinding or clenching may fracture the edges of them. Those who would not benefit from Lumineers® may be good candidates for other cosmetic dentistry services and should talk with their doctor about their options to fix teeth with veneers.
