WHAT ARE LUMINEERS?
Lumineers are an ultra-thin type of dental veneers that fit over your teeth. Diamond District Dental uses Lumineers to improve the beauty of your teeth by:
- Improving shape
- Adding length
- Creating more width
- Improving color
- Hiding stains
- Covering gaps, chips, and broken teeth
Lumineers last up to 20 years or more. If for some reason you decide you no longer want them, you can go back to your natural teeth at any time.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET LUMINEERS?
You only need two visits to Diamond District Dental to get a beautiful Lumineer smile.
First, during your consultation for Lumineers, your Diamond District Dental professional examines your teeth and gums to be sure they’re healthy enough for Lumineers.
Your dentist then takes impressions of your teeth and sends them to a Lumineers lab. The experts at Lumineers create custom-designed Lumineers that are about as thin as a contact lens.
At your second visit, your dentist places the custom-made Lumineers on your teeth to be sure they fit. Your dentist then lightly etches your teeth to facilitate bonding and then bonds each veneer to its corresponding tooth. Your dentist can usually place all of your veneers in about two hours.
HOW ARE LUMINEERS BETTER THAN REGULAR VENEERS?
Lumineers have several advantages over traditional veneers, including:
- No anesthesia or shots needed
- No drilling
- No grinding down your natural teeth
- No pain
- They can 20 years or more
- They can be removed
- No side effects or post-procedure pain
Lumineers are also more translucent than traditional veneers, so they look more like natural teeth.
HOW SHOULD I TREAT MY LUMINEERS?
You can treat Lumineers like natural teeth. Eat all of the foods you love. You can even drink wine and coffee because the hard-coated Lumineers resist stains.
You need to take care of your Lumineers the same way you care for your natural teeth. Brush and floss after meals and visit Diamond District Dental twice a year for an examination and professional cleaning.
DO LUMINEERS HAVE A GOOD TRACK RECORD?
Dental professionals have used Lumineers to help men and women, including some of your favorite stars, improve their smiles for more than 30 years.
