Lumineers are an exceptional way of restoring teeth, as they are ultra-thin and highly transluscent, mimicking the natural appearance of enamel. Where traditional veneers are much thicker, requiring the reducing the original tooth structure, Lumineers are so thin that little to no tooth reduction is needed. Moreover, the strength of Lumineers allows them to resist wear, therefore lasting for a longer time.
During the first visit, the dentist makes an impression of the teeth to make a cast representing the selected teeth. Then, he or she determines the most suitable shade of color that is needed for the Lumineers. Both the casts and shade are sent to the laboratory to make the Lumineers. When the dentist receives the Lumineers, he or she examines them for fit and shade matching. Subsequently, during the second visit, the Lumineers are applied to the teeth, one-by-one. With their new set of Lumineers, the patient is able to smile, drink and eat reasonably with confidence. It is important to note that Lumineers don’t replace good oral hygiene. The patient must continue to visit the dentist every 6 months – or even more often in some cases. Periodic check-ups and cleanings will help keep the Lumineers looking their best, as well as well as take care of the overall oral health of the patient.
