How Can Lumineers® Change My Smile?

Posted on: August 7, 2019

If you are unhappy with your smile, Lumineers might be a good option. Lumineers are similar to veneers but are not nearly as invasive. Lumineers are very thin, so your dentist likely will not have to remove any of your tooth’s structure before placing the restoration. Even if the dentist does have to remove some of your tooth, it will be at a minimum. Find out how this restoration can improve your smile.

Ways Lumineers change smiles

Lumineers are placed directly on the teeth. This restoration is used to fix a variety of cosmetic issues. Get details on common issues that the restoration fixes.

Covers chipped teeth

Chips in teeth are often so small that bonding is not necessary. The chips do not cause discomfort, but these imperfections are still unsightly. Lumineers cover chips, quickly providing a smile that is free of defects.

Instantly whitens teeth

People who suffer from discolored teeth can get Lumineers for instant whitening. Lumineers are resistant to staining, making the restorations less likely to change color based on what people eat and drink. That makes this a long-lasting whitening solution. On the other hand, if people choose tooth whitening, the natural teeth can become discolored based on the food and beverages patients consume. That means people will have to go through a whitening procedure again to return to the desired results.

Straightens crooked teeth

Adults often do not want to get braces or Invisalign for crooked teeth. They want something that will work faster. Lumineers go over crooked teeth, providing the appearance of straight teeth in an instant.

It is important to understand that while Lumineers can make most crooked teeth appear straight, patients who have severely misaligned teeth might require another straightening option. The thin shells can mask moderately crooked teeth. However, since it is a noninvasive procedure with little to no enamel removal, it is not a good option for extremely crooked teeth.

Covers misshapen teeth

Misshapen teeth can hurt the look of a smile. Many people are afraid to flash their pearly whites due to this issue. Lumineers cover misshapen teeth, so people no longer have to worry about this issue.

Eliminates gaps

People who have gaps between teeth suffer from cosmetic and functional issues. The gaps make the smile undesirable and food and debris can get stuck in the area between the teeth. Lumineers cover gaps, so the teeth look properly aligned.

Covers old dental work

Many people have bridges or crowns that are still fully functional but not visually appealing. It is not wise to remove old dental work that is still functional. Fortunately, people can place Lumineers over the old dental work to hide it.

Change your smile with Lumineers

Lumineers can cover chips, whiten your teeth and make them appear straight. These thin restorations can also cover misshapen teeth, eliminate gaps and hide your old dental work. If you want to improve your smile, contact your dentist to learn more about Lumineers. You can schedule a consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for this dental restoration.
