Lumineers are ultra-thin, translucent porcelain, proprietary to DenMat Lab, that are placed over natural teeth to replicate the enamel. Although Lumineers are durable and can last for as long as twenty years, they do not eliminate the need for consistent oral hygiene.
The doctors and the oral healthcare professionals at All Care Dental by the Sea, located near you in Port Hueneme, CA, want to educate their patients, current and new, on the option of Lumineers as a restorative dental treatment.
Lumineers can be an alternative to many common dental conditions with just two visits. However, the dentist must be a Certified Lumineer Dentist to advise a patient and to perform the treatment.
Below are six of the common conditions suitable for the Lumineer treatment.
Teeth whitening is the common option, but this option is temporary. Lumineers are the permanent solution for teeth whitening regardless of the food, the drink or the passage of time.
Lumineers are the painless, permanent solution for the repair of chipped front teeth.
Lumineers are the best, non-invasive treatment to eliminate the spaces or gaps in front teeth, or any other spacing issues in the mouth.
Sometimes, Lumineers can be the alternative to orthodontics or other straightening treatments. There are many adults who do not want to endure the discomfort, or to invest the time, in other straightening methods. Instead, straight teeth can be accomplished in two visits.
Any misshapen front teeth will detract from your appearance and smile. Since Lumineers are placed over natural teeth, without the enamel being drilled down, there is no discomfort to the misshapen tooth or to the adjacent teeth.
Over time, crowns and bridgework will discolor and undermine your appearance. Lumineers can be placed over replacement teeth for the same reasons and effect as with natural teeth.
A precise mold is taken during the first visit. Before this mold is sent to the DenMat Lab, you and your dentist will make the determination of the shade of white that is right for you. When the Lumineers are returned from the Lab and are checked for fit and color, they are placed during the second visit.
Unlike veneers, it is not necessary to wear temporaries during the time between the first and second visits as the natural enamel remains intact. The Lumineers are painlessly applied without shots or the drilling into the sensitive tooth structure.
Also, unlike veneers, Lumineers are completely reversible.
