Saint Louis LUMINEERS Dentist Explains How LUMINEERS Can Stand In For Orthodontia

Written by Dr. Grayem on Mar 11, 2014

Many patients want to improve the appearance of their smiles, but they do not want to expend the time and effort to go through orthodontic treatment. It used to be that these patients were simply out of luck—orthodontic treatment was the only way to make a patient’s smile appear straight. Now, however, our Saint Louis LUMINEER dentists are proud to offer cosmetic LUMINEERS to our patients. In many cases, this treatment can improve the appearance of a patient’s smile just as much as orthodontia.

Today we are going to discuss some ways that our dentist uses LUMINEERS to help patients achieve straight and seamless smiles.

1. Correct crooked teeth

If you have misaligned teeth, you could use traditional metal braces to slowly straighten them over time. Or, you could have our dentist place simple LUMINEERS over your misaligned teeth. Your LUMINEERS will be crafted to a specific thickness, so that the front surface of your smile will appear smooth and seamless.

2. Close spaces

Some patients suffer with wide or unsightly spaces between their teeth. These spaces can take a long time to close using traditional braces. However, our dentist can close these spaces in just two or three dental appointment using LUMINEERS. Your LUMINEERS will simply be slightly wider around the gaps in your smile. When all of your LUMINEERS are placed, your smile will appear completely uninterrupted.

These are just two of the ways that our Saint Louis LUMINEER dentists utilize LUMINEERS to enhance patients’ smiles. Importantly, this treatment is exceptionally fast—which means many patients can enjoy full aesthetic results after only three dental appointments. Additionally, the LUMINEER treatment process is quite comfortable for the patient. This is a great cosmetic option for many people—just give our dental office a call if you would like to get more information about your dentistry options!
