Improving the appearance of your smiles doesn’t have to be a hassle and a chore. Modern dentistry offers effective and transformative cosmetic options to correct a wide variety of cosmetic complaints.
Today our Saint Louis Lumineer dentists are answering your questions about the advantages of these porcelain restorations.
Q: How do Lumineers help to improve smiles?
A: Lumineers are independent cosmetic restorations that are designed to be attached to the patient’s natural teeth. Once attached, Lumineers totally resurface the patient’s dental enamel—so Lumineers can achieve all kinds of aesthetic results.
Q: Should I use cosmetic Lumineers for my smile?
A: The only way to know for sure whether Lumineers are right for you is to speak with a dental professional about your cosmetic needs. But here is some information about what Lumineers can achieve generally:
· Straighter looking smiles
· Smiles without gaps between teeth
· Brighter, whiter teeth
· Refined looking dental enamel (even if you have dental damage or textural irregularities on your dental surfaces)
Also, many people choose to use dental Lumineers, rather than other cosmetic options, because they want to achieve stunning results quickly. With Lumineers, you can conceivably transform your smile in just a few dental appointments.
Q: How long do dental Lumineers last?
A: Once Luminees are attached to your natural teeth, they are permanently affixed, which means you will not be able to take them in and out. With proper care, these restorations will last for decades before they need to be replaced or repaired.
