Why Should You Choose Lumineers?
For the patients who are seeking the easiest, most effective, non-invasive way to completely transform their smiles, there are Lumineers. A cousin of porcelain veneers, Lumineers come with perks that could be just right for your customized smile makeover. Dr. Michael J. Wei, Midtown Lumineers cosmetic dentist, can help you figure out whether you should choose Lumineers for yourself.
All the Perks of Veneers Without Any of the Fuss
Lumineers are highly translucent and super-thin – about as thin as a contact lens. These characteristics allow Lumineers to effectively mimic the natural appearance of tooth enamel. Traditional porcelain veneers are thin too, but they’re thicker than Lumineers and require the grinding down of original tooth structure for the porcelain shields to be bonded in place. Lumineers demand little to no tooth reduction.
When you’re making major changes to your teeth, you want the results to be amazing and, if possible, to avoid any sort of discomfort along the way. Lumineers reshape, whiten, lengthen, and beautify your teeth without the need to remove any original tooth structure. That means less likelihood of sensitivity after the procedure and greater comfort.
Maintaining the integrity of the tooth’s construction also means that you have the option to reverse the procedure, should you ever choose to go back to your original teeth or do something different.
While veneers are a stunning and proven cosmetic dentistry procedure for the right patient, they are a more invasive treatment. Anesthesia shots may be necessary to minimize any discomfort during the shaving away of tooth enamel. Acrylic temporaries are usually put in place for a few weeks while veneers are being customized – with Lumineers the minimal prep means you don’t have to worry about how your teeth look in between preparation and smile makeover completion.
Long-Lasting, Durable Materials
Teeth work hard every day, withstanding biting and chewing force, helping you speak and smile and enabling your face to hold its shape. Any smile makeover patient wants their treatments to have endurance. Durable Lumineers can last for decades and resist wear and tear with proper brushing, flossing, and regular check-ups and cleanings from your dentist.
The Beautiful Alternative to Braces
There are many reasons people get orthodontic treatment: jaw pain, a bad bite, gaps, a few crooked teeth. However, if there is no need to physically resituate your teeth, Lumineers can cover the complaints you have about your smile – straightening, whitening, and perfecting your teeth simultaneously – and save you from years of orthodontia, multiple dental visits, and the inconvenience of having braces.
