Lumineers Baltimore, MD

Lumineers An Overview

Lumineers® is a brand of minimal-prep dental veneers that can treat a range of cosmetic dental concerns. They are a popular type of porcelain veneer that does not require sanding teeth and can be placed over a crown or bridgework.

Cosmetic dentist Dr. Byron Desbordes may recommend Lumineers for patients who have stable oral health but want to address their cosmetic dental issues. They are a temporary treatment that will not damage the natural tooth. They cover the front and sides of the tooth for a durable and natural result.

Lumineers® for Cosmetic Dental Concerns

Lumineers can address several cosmetic dental concerns. These ultra-thin porcelain veneers can be a great solution for patients with inclining teeth. They can also treat chipped or cracked teeth. If your enamel has deteriorated faster than usual over time, Lumineers can cover the damage.

Dr. Desbordes may also recommend them for patients who want to straighten the appearance of minor orthodontic concerns. For patients with tooth discoloration caused by medication or trauma, Lumineers provide a way to cover the stain.

Lumineers have been proven to last around 20 years. They are completely reversible and removable by a dentist. Your dentist can remove them to correct functional issues, fill cavities, and more.

Do Lumineers protect my teeth?
