Lumineers are a special type of dental veneer that uses ultra-thin Cerinate porcelain. This porcelain is so strong that it can be made as thin as a contact lens and still last many years. This thinness allows the Lumineers to be bonded directly to the tops of teeth. Less preparation leads to a more comfortable, entirely reversible procedure. Our expert in Lumineers in Beverly Hills, in the heart of Los Angeles, can help you decide if Lumineers are right for you.
Conventional dental veneers are usually at least half a millimeter thick. Lumineers are often less than half that thickness, and they are often compared to contact lenses. This wafer-thin design makes them extremely comfortable to wear. If you are a candidate for Lumineers, our Beverly Hills Lumineers expert may be able to place them without the need for uncomfortable shots or painful drilling. Your teeth will not need to be reduced, and you can enjoy a comfortable, long-lasting restoration that gives you the smile of your dreams within about two dental visits.
Who is the best Candidate for Lumineers
You may be a candidate for Lumineers if you have teeth that have discolorations, worn enamel, chips, fractures or similar flaws. Teeth that are abnormally small or have similar minor abnormalities may also benefit from Lumineers. If you have more extensive flaws or have significant misalignments that you want disguised, you may benefit from minor enamel adjustment that allows for more versatility from your restorations.
At your first appointment, our expert in Lumineers in Beverly Hills, in the heart of Los Angeles, will work with you to create your dream smile. We can adjust the size, shape, color and other features to better flatter you. Impressions and images may be taken to create the new veneers. At the next appointment, your new Lumineers will be bonded onto your teeth, where they can remain up to 20 years or longer. While Lumineers usually need no special care beyond good dental hygiene and regular checkups, our Beverly Hills Lumineers expert may recommend wearing a mouth guard or taking other precautions if you have bruxism or regularly engage in contact sports.
