There are a few traits as endearing as a beautiful smile. When you show off those pearly whites, you can improve your mood and help cheer up those around you. A great smile gives you the confidence to be the star of all those selfies that your friends insist on taking when you’re out on the town. But what if your smile isn’t as attractive as you would like? Lumineers In Orlando can help.
WHAT ARE LUMINEERS?
Lumineers are ultra-thin pieces of porcelain that your dentist attaches to the fronts of your teeth. They can disguise all sorts of cosmetic flaws, including:
- Cracks and chips
- Minor gaps and misalignment
- Unshapely teeth
You might have heard a lot of buzz about porcelain veneers — in fact, many celebrities have used them to get their smiles to the top of their game — but there are differences between Lumineers and traditional porcelain veneers.
The biggest difference is the preparation involved. With traditional veneers, your dentist has to remove a thin layer of enamel from your natural teeth so the porcelain will align with your smile. However, that isn’t necessary with Lumineers because they are so thin. The pearly whites that nature gave you will stay intact.
THE UNIQUE BENEFITS OF LUMINEERS
There is, even more, To Love About Lumineers. They’re very durable; if you care for them well, they can last for 20 years or longer. However, if you change your mind about wearing them, they’re not difficult for your dentist to remove.
Also, the procedure for getting Lumineers is fast and easy. It takes just two visits to your dentist. On the first visit, your dentist will make an impression on your teeth. No drills, shots, or tooth preparation is necessary. The impression, along with photographs, gets sent to a Lumineers laboratory, where the experts will craft your new smile.
During your second visit, your dentist will lightly etch your teeth and then bond the Lumineers to them. Then, he or she will check your bite to make sure that your Lumineers won’t get cracked or chipped during your everyday activities. When all is said and done, you’ll walk away feeling like a million bucks.
ARE LUMINEERS RIGHT FOR YOU?
Lumineers offer a ton of benefits, but before you set your heart on them, schedule a consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Orlando. There, you’ll learn more about Lumineers, and your dentist will make a recommendation on the best way to reshape your smile. It may be that veneers placed in the traditional way would be better for your situation. This might be the case if the small increase in tooth size that Lumineers cause would be a problem.
