Grove City Dentist Serving Columbus, Dublin, Hilliard, Ohio
Lumineers® are a revolutionary type of porcelain veneer. They are as thin as a contact lens and made from feldspathic porcelain. Lumineers do not require your teeth to be “prepped” or shaved down so that they can fit over top, which makes the procedure completely reversible. For this reason, they are often called “temporary” veneers.
Despite being made from such a thin material, these restorations are still an effective way to improve the appearance of your smile. Lumineers can even be placed over your existing dental crown or bridgework without having to replace them.
Imperfections that Lumineers can correct
Lumineers are commonly used to:
- Mask stains and discolorations on your teeth
- Create the appearance of a straight smile if your teeth are crooked or unevenly spaced
- Correct the appearance of misshapen teeth
- Improve the appearance of chipped or cracked teeth
Due to their versatility, Dr. Sheridan often recommends Lumineers as part of a smile makeover.
Benefits of Lumineers
Lumineers can fix dental problems immediately. If you have been thinking about braces or Invisalign® but do not want to wait months or years for a straight, dazzling smile,Lumineers can give you the smile of your dreams in as little as two dental visits.
If you have teeth that are badly stained and have been unresponsive to teeth whiteningtreatments, Lumineers can restore a bright, attractive smile that looks so natural no one will be able to tell they are not your actual teeth. Because the Lumineers process does not require anesthesia or any numbing shots, you can enjoy a pain-free procedure with little sensitivity, and you will be able to resume your normal lifestyle immediately.
While traditional porcelain veneers are recommended for patients with more severe cosmetic problems, the non-invasive Lumineers process is a good way to get accustomed to veneers to see if they are a good fit for you.
