The best way to enhance your smile depends on your circumstances, end goal and budget. The options sitting in front of you can often be overwhelming. Cosmetic dentistry has recently been gaining momentum for patients seeking to enhance their appearance, starting with their teeth. Lumineers can be a quick and effective solution for improving the appearance of your smile. At Creative Dentistry & Medspa, we offer Lumineers, a product similar to veneers, which can be a viable option to improve your smile. Our cosmetic dentist can perform a smile makeover with Lumineers at our dental center in Sandy Springs, GA.
What Are Lumineers?
Lumineers consist of a paper-thin ceramic shell, most often compared to the thickness of a single contact lens. These structures or shells fit over your teeth comfortably while maintaining the natural structure and thickness of your tooth and enhancing the overall look of your smile.
Lumineers offer a seamless finish in radiance, color and shape to improve the appearance of individual teeth and the complete smile. With Lumineers, you will be able to hide certain dental flaws and transform your smile without changing your teeth structure.
Lumineers vs. Traditional Veneers
When comparing Lumineers to traditional veneers, the application process is basically the same. However, with traditional veneers, more of the enamel of your tooth may be shaved down in order to make space for the thicker shell of the veneer. On the other hand, with Lumineers, little to no enamel needs to be shaved off in order to make room for the ultra-thin porcelain shells. Once teeth have veneers, they will always need veneers or a covering to replace the enamel lost. With Lumineers, you will not lose a significant amount of your enamel and if needed, you can remove your teeth coverings.
Benefits Associated with Lumineers
The benefits of Lumineers are many, so let’s take a look at some of them:
- Lumineers are a reversible treatment
- Less preparation of the natural tooth structure is needed
- Faster treatment time as temporary veneers are not needed
- No anesthesia is required for the procedure
Lumineers can be the right choice for patients who want to improve their smile without a life-long commitment.
