Veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic methods to improve smiles. Thin shells made of composite resin or porcelain are bonded to the front of teeth. They can fix several aesthetic problems like crooked, discolored, or misaligned teeth.
Taking it one step further, Dr. Prakash K. Sojitra at Smile World Dental provides lumineers, the advanced version of dental veneers. Lumineers have the same function as veneers but with a lot more advantages.
Why Do You Need Lumineers?
Lumineers are a brand of veneers that are thinner and faster than the original. Like veneers, dental lumineers are also used to treat various teeth abnormalities. Lumineers are used to treat the following aesthetic problems at Smile World Dental:
- Crooked or uneven teeth
- Wide gaps between teeth
- Broken, cracked, or chipped teeth
- Deeply stained or discolored teeth
- Worn down or eroded teeth
What Are the Benefits of Dental Lumineers?
Although dental veneers and lumineers have the same functions, there are some basic advantages in using the latter. Some of the benefits of dental lumineers are:
- Procedure Is Fast and Reversible
As lumineers are super thin, they can be attached to the tooth without scraping off the enamel, like for dental veneers. And they’re super easy to install on teeth. Since dental lumineers procedures don’t involve removing tooth material, it is reversible in the future.
- Natural and Translucent
Dental lumineers are made of thin ceramic shells that look and feel like natural teeth. And they’re more transparent than traditional dental veneers.
- Compact and Comfortable
Compared to bulky dental veneers, lumineers feel super compact and comfortable inside the mouth. They don’t hinder normal teeth functions in any way.
Even though dental lumineers are super thin, they’re made of durable and sturdy material. They can last up to 10 to 15 years.
What Is the Process of Getting Lumineers?
After examining your dental condition, Dr. Sojitra will take X-rays and impressions of the teeth. Next, custom-made lumineers are installed onto the teeth and ensured that they fit perfectly. Once you’re used to the lumineers, they will be as comfortable as real teeth.
