An ideal smile makeover solution, Lumineers can correct cosmetic imperfections on your teeth or enhance the overall appearance of your smile. They can mask stained teeth, fill in small gaps between teeth, and hide chips, uneven edges, or misshapen teeth. You should keep in mind a few considerations prior to beginning the process of receiving Lumineers. Schedule a cosmetic consultation with our team to determine if Lumineers are the right option. It is important that patients who choose Lumineers have a healthy foundation.
Healthy gums and a cavity-free tooth structure are essential for treatment with Lumineers, because the attach to the front surfaces of the teeth that show when you smile. Your bite (how your upper and lower teeth meet) must also be in proper alignment for best results, as this treatment will not reposition your teeth. Often referred to as "instant orthodontics," Lumineers can hide minor concerns like slight crowding, gaps, and crooked teeth. To treat greater concerns like an overbite or underbite, orthodontics may be required. If you grind or clench your teeth (bruxism), Lumineers may not be right for you.
What To Expect
As a noninvasive cosmetic procedure, Lumineers require very little preparation. No drilling or anesthetic is necessary, and treatment with Lumineers is typically very comfortable. Your procedures will be completed in two visits. During your consultation or first visit, impressions of your teeth will be taken and sent to our special Lumineers lab for custom-fabrication. You will work with Dr. Capps to determine the shade of white that fits your unique preferences and oral features. As no tooth enamel removal is required, you will not have to wear temporary restorations while you wait for your ultra-thin porcelain veneers to be created. In a week or two, your Lumineers will be complete and you will return so we can permanently bond them to your teeth. This procedure allows us to maintain your underlying tooth structure and help you receive a proper, comfortable fit. An instant smile solution, the Lumineers process is simple and pain-free.
There is no recovery period for Lumineers as they do not require any removal of your tooth structure. You're free to simply enjoy your new smile as soon as your restorations are placed. We advise that you avoid chewing ice and biting down on hard objects like fingernails and pens, but because your Lumineers are bonded to your teeth with a strong cement, you can eat and drink whatever you prefer. Lumineers can last you for 20 years with proper care and maintenance. You will need to follow appropriate home care guidelines with brushing and flossing, just as you do with normal teeth, to keep your Lumineers in shape. Bi-annual cleaning and exam visits are also important to maintain oral health, and Dr. Capps will examine your Lumineers during these visits to monitor their condition.
