Not everyone is naturally blessed with straight white teeth. And though there are different options available to improve and correct the look of a smile, some options require a certain amount of time to create a beautiful smile. If wanting a better smile next week is high on your priorities then you may be interested in the transformative effects of Lumineer® veneers.
What Are Lumineers®?
Imagine something as delicate as a contact lens but with the strength of porcelain. That’s the beauty of Lumineers® – veneers that are paper-thin; able to create a smile that resembles natural tooth structure and color but with durability to provide essential function. The other benefit of Lumineers® is their ability to transform a smile with minimal preparation of the natural tooth. This means that the natural tooth doesn’t have to be reduced dramatically – a step that is very common when placing a dental crown or more traditional veneer. With Lumineers® a tooth may require the surface being roughened slightly – enabling the veneer to be cemented in place. Patients who have a tooth that is out of alignment slightly; maybe a little further back than other teeth or a tad shorter are great candidates for veneers as in placing the dental restoration a straighter, fuller smile is created.
