All About Lumineers

Smiling man veneersIn this day in age, many people suffer from dental issues like stained, inclined or cracked teeth. Lumineers provide a stable, natural solution to those in need. Most patients prefer Lumineers because the are considered a “no prep or minimal prep” veneer option. Dr. Byron Desbordes will skillfully apply your Lumineers, giving you an unforgettable smile.

Why Lumineers?

Lumineers can help transform a patient’s smile who might suffer from:

  • crowded teeth
  • misshaped teeth
  • small teeth
  • cracked or chipped teeth
  • stained teeth.

Lumineers offer patients the ability to cover the front and back side of their tooth. Lumineers are traditionally thinner than veneers, allowing for patients to have a natural looking smile. Veneers require patients to shape down their teeth to properly fit, while Lumineers require little to no shaving of the tooth enamel. With proper care, Lumineers can last well over 20 years. Another benefit of Lumineers is the application. Applying Lumineers is relatively quick. You could have your new Lumineers in a matter of two short visits to our Windsor Mill office. During the first visit, an impression of your teeth is taken to create customized Lumineers. The Lumineers will be color matched to ensure a perfect match to your smile. During the second visit, your Lumineers will be painlessly placed and adjusted, giving you a brand new smile. With Lumineers, patients have the option to get them removed if necessary.

It is important to note; patients must still practice great oral habits once their Lumineers are placed. Although you can drink and eat without worrying about damaging your Lumineers, maintaining proper brushing, flossing, and preventative care is necessary to receive optimal results.
