Get a Dazzling New Smile With Lumineers®
Lumineers are unique dental veneers that can restore your smile and cover any noticeable flaws with your teeth. Our team at Made Ya Smile Dental Rayford of Spring, TX can help install new Lumineers on your teeth giving your the look you are after.
Lumineers are similar to dental veneers, but they are slightly thinner than traditional porcelain veneers. Lumineers are about 0.2 mm thick, which is closer to half as thick as a traditional veneer.
The thin design of a Lumineer makes it easier for us to install the veneer over a tooth. We won’t have to trim any bits of enamel off your tooth before installing it, as the Lumineer is thin enough to create a good look without feeling unusual inside your mouth.
How is a Lumineer made?
Our dentists at Made Ya Smile can prepare a Lumineer for your smile in moments. We can review your teeth and identify the proper shape for your Lumineer. Afterward, we will plan the cover using a durable material similar to the porcelain you would find in a traditional veneer.
The Lumineer then goes over the tooth that requires help. A dental cement material will help keep the cover in its place. The design ensures a sturdy body that covers the tooth.
What’s the best part of a Lumineer?
The most exciting part of a Lumineer for your smile is that it doesn’t require dental trimming. A traditional porcelain veneer requires a dentist to trim a portion of the enamel from your tooth. The trimming is necessary for allowing the veneer to fit over the tooth without creating a bulging effect.
The ultra-thin nature of the Lumineer makes it easier to apply. Our dentists at Made Ya Smile Dental Rayford of Spring, TX will not require any trimming of the enamel when applying the Lumineer over your tooth.
Who can benefit from Lumineers?
Lumineers are available for any person who needs help in correcting one’s smile. It is useful for crowding, gaps, chips or cracks in the teeth, and crooked teeth. The solution helps people who have various minor problems that require a cover.
How long can Lumineers last?
Lumineers can last for years when maintained well. They can last for about ten years on average, which is about the same length as a traditional dental veneer.
You’ll have an easier time managing your Lumineers when you maintain your teeth well. Be sure to brush each day and visit us for regular dental cleanings every six months to preserve your cover.
Lumineers can be replaced after they wear, but you won’t have to remove any enamel on your tooth when doing so. We can remove the cover from your tooth and apply a new one without having to trim the enamel. We will need to remove the cement for the Lumineer, but the process will not require us to cut away any enamel from your tooth.
