Chips, gaps, and stains might not affect the health of your smile, but they can affect how you feel about your smile. Lumineers can give you the beautiful smile of your dreams without permanently altering your teeth. Dr. Lozada, Lancaster Lumineers dentist, can help you decide if Lumineers are right for you.
Lumineers are a type of dental veneer. Veneers fit over your natural teeth much like a contact lens fits over your eye or an acrylic fits over your fingernail. Conventional veneers require some of the natural dental enamel to be removed so that the porcelain shell fits comfortably over the tooth. Lumineers are made of Cerinate porcelain, which can be made extremely thin so that it can be placed over the natural tooth without the need for enamel reduction. Dr. Lozada, expert in Lumineers in Lancaster, can place Lumineers in as few as two visits.
Dr. Lozada, Lancaster Lumineers dentist, offers consultations to help you learn more about Lumineers. During your consultation, we can help you determine your candidacy. Lumineers can be a great option for those who have the following cosmetic issues:
• Stained and discolored teeth
• Old dental work
• Misaligned teeth
• Chipped teeth
• Cracked teeth
• Worn dentition
• Gaps or spaces between your teeth
• Misshapen teeth
After your consultation, Dr. Lozada, expert in Lumineers in Lancaster, will work with you to design your new smile. You can choose the shape, color, and other aspects of your Lumineers to create a look that is more flattering to your overall appearance. Lumineers are less than 1/64” and can easily fit over your own teeth, so there is usually no preparation. Once your smile is designed and dental impressions have been taken, your records will be sent to the Lumineers lab, which will create your Lumineers. The Lumineers will be bonded to your teeth at your next visit.
Once in position, Lumineers can last for twenty or more years. Good dental hygiene and healthy habits will help keep your Lumineers in good shape and ensure a long-lasting smile. Since no tooth structure is removed, there will be no drilling or shots, and your results will be sensitivity-free.
