Our Saint Louis cosmetic dentists believe that every patient should have a smile that he or she wants to show off to the world. Because few of us are born with “Hollywood smiles,” cosmetic dentistry treatments can go a long way toward perfecting the appearance of unsightly teeth. An increasingly popular option for dental patients is LUMINEERS treatment. Dental LUMINEERS are making it faster and easier than ever before for patients to achieve their best smiles. Read on to get some more information about this exciting treatment…
Q: How long does it take for the dentist to place LUMINEERS?
A: One of the major advantages of LUMINEERS treatment is that most of the time treatment can be completed in only two or three dental appointments. Because LUMINEERS cover your natural teeth, our dentist simply has to design and fit your dental LUMINEERS to suit your smile, and then attach them.
Q: How are LUMINEERS different from traditional veneers?
A: Both veneers and LUMINEERS use porcelain restorations to cover and transform unsightly teeth. However, LUMINEERS are much thinner than traditional veneers. This means that our dentist does not need to shave away very much dental material when placing LUMINEERS. Consequently, LUMINEERS are reversible, while veneers are not.
Q: What should I do if I think LUMINEERS are right for me?
A: The best thing to do is to speak to your dentist about your cosmetic concerns. Your dentist can examine your smile to make sure that your teeth are healthy enough for cosmetic treatment. You can also check out our LUMINEERS dentistry page to get a better sense of how LUMINEERS work.
