Most people want a beautiful smile that’s both radiant and looks natural. After all, a stellar smile goes hand in hand with confidence, and having one can be life-changing. If you’re unhappy with the cosmetic appearance of your teeth, the good news is that there are more dental options than ever before that provide fast, dramatic results. One of the most popular and conservative options in achieving those results are Lumineers. Lumineers are a doctor and patient favorite here at Creative Dentistry & Medspa in Sandy Springs, because they are a simple and safe treatment that gives transformational results patients love.
What Are Lumineers?
Lumineers are a type of super-thin veneer that adheres to the surface of the tooth to become the new surface. They are very similar to other types of veneers in that they work in much the same way to solve some of the same cosmetic problems, such as cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth. They are also a solution for teeth that are worn, have spaces, or are small or crooked.
How Are Lumineers Different from Other Veneers?
Lumineers are one type of minimal to no preparation dental veneer. While they solve the same problems, the main difference is in what is required to put them in. Since Lumineers are thinner, they require Dr. Reddy to remove much less, if any of the tooth enamel before placement. This makes the process one of the least invasive of cosmetic dentistry solutions. Dr. Reddy applies the thin shells seamlessly, and there’s no need for shots. The process is also takes considerably less time than traditional veneers.
Not Just a Pretty Smile
A pretty smile does not mean much if the cosmetic solution is not durable and lasting. Lumineers provide exceptional durability, resist wear, and can last 20 years. They also resist staining and keep their natural color and sheen indefinitely with the right care.
Fewer Food Restrictions
At Creative Dentistry & Medspa, we only use Lumineers crafted from Cerinate porcelain, which is known for its exceptional strength and resistance to staining. With Lumineers, patients are free to eat and drink just about anything they would normally, including coffee and tea. Our Atlanta, Dunwoody and Sandy Springs patients love that they get beautiful results with Lumineers, but don’t have to worry so much about taking care of their new teeth.
Are Lumineers for Everyone?
Just like with other veneers, Lumineers are not for everyone. Our dentist, Dr. Reddy, must evaluate your current oral condition to see if they would be a right fit in your case. Just like in other veneers, they may not be a good fit in some situations which include:
- Severely misaligned or crooked teeth
- Where there is decay or gum disease
- In those who grind or clench their teeth habitually
Even if you were not lucky enough to have a naturally perfect smile, there is no reason why you have to settle for anything less than the smile of your dreams. Lumineers are a safe and pain-free solution for many cosmetic dental issues, and can be done in a fraction of the time as other dental procedures achieving the same results.
