Saint Louis LUMINEERS Dentist Explains How LUMINEERS Can Be Used to Change the Size of Teeth

Written by Dr. Grayem on Jul 2, 2013

Many patients know that they can whiten their dental enamel and straighten the appearance of their teeth, but they think that, no matter what, they are stuck with the current sizes of their teeth. The truth is, however, that there are cosmetic treatments that can make your teeth appear better proportioned and sized. One of those treatment options is LUMINEERS. Our Saint Louis LUMINEERS dentists have helped numerous patients achieve stunning smiles with this treatment.

If you find that your teeth look too narrow or too short, you have probably noticed that this can make your entire smile seem uneven and unbalanced. It is often easy to bring the smile into better harmony with just a few alterations to the sizes of your teeth.

If one or multiple of your teeth are too short, our dentist can craft a LUMINEER that extends past your natural enamel, and makes your tooth appear longer. This can help to close gaps between top and bottom teeth, in spots where your natural teeth are not long enough to fit together.

Narrow teeth can likewise be altered to appear wider and more substantial. Widening your LUMINEERS is also a way to close gaps between your teeth—giving your smile a seamless appearance. How much wider we need to make your LUMINEERS will depend on how many teeth you are treating with LUMINEERS and the extent of your dental spacing.

Many patients choose to use LUMINEERS for these cosmetic issues because our dentist can place LUMINEERS in just a few dental appointments. This is a fast, non-invasive, and convenient way to transform your smile in a short period of time.
