Are you looking for a pure, cosmetic treatment to perfect nuances in your smile? At our Cincinnati office, we are a proponent of dental Lumineers. Lumineers offer a safe, painless and highly effective way to hide stains, close gaps, and correct chipped or cracked teeth. In addition, they can help to straighten crooked teeth, even substituting for braces.
The function of Lumineers is similar to that of porcelain veneers, though they are much thinner and can be applied directly to teeth. In contrast to traditional methods, there is no need to remove any existing part of the tooth before adhesion. As a result, patients do not require any shots or drilling during the application process. The entire process is a completely pain-free way to reshape and permanently whiten your teeth without discomfort or sensitivity post-procedure.
Lumineers are custom-made to fit your teeth from an impression that is taken at the patient’s first appointment. The end product is a stunning, natural-looking smile. Constructed from patented Cerinate porcelain, Lumineers are highly translucent, allowing for replication of the natural appearance of enamel. Drink and eat what you desire, as the product is chip and stain resistant. Extremely durable, Lumineers typically last for over 20 years. If for some reason you are unsatisfied with your new look, the work is completely reversible because there is no removal of healthy tooth structure. Your natural teeth are still intact and strong.
In some cases, patients request an entire smile makeover, though selecting specific teeth is also an option. Our patients have been thrilled with the enhancements Lumineers provide. Call Twin Dental today to schedule a consultation.
