What Are Lumineers?
Cosmetic Dentistry You'll Love
Lumineers are one of the most popular solutions for replacing enamel on teeth that have become stained or simply do not have the shine or the whiteness they once did.
Like dental veneers, our Lumineers are an extremely thin strip of porcelain that is placed over your naturally occurring teeth. These ultra-thin strips of porcelain can augment your teeth and make them look like there is no damage, no stains, and that they are perfectly formed and shaped. For this reason, Lumineers help us:
The procedure to get your Lumineers consists of two visits to our Fuquay-Varina office.
The first visit is the initial consultation, during which impressions of both your upper and lower teeth will be taken along with measurements. This information is sent to the Lumineers laboratory along with photographs and other records that you can provide. They are created on-site using your specific measurements to ensure that they fit perfectly and look natural. Unlike traditional veneers, you will not need any shots since there is no requirement to drill and remove the enamel. Also, you will not have to wear unsightly acrylic temporaries.
When your Lumineers are back, we will look at the color palette and other factors to ensure that once we place your Lumineers, they look exactly the way you wanted them to. Once perfectly fitted, we will bond them to your teeth so you can enjoy a beautiful and bright smile.
It is important to remember that your Lumineers will function exactly the way your naturally occurring teeth would. There are no dietary restrictions, and as long as you continue to keep your teeth clean and healthy, they should last for years to come.
