Saint Louis Lumineers Dentist Offers Patients an Effective Alternative to Braces

Dental misalignment, and poorly spaced teeth, can make patients feel a little hesitant to showcase their smiles in public. The good news is that there are cosmetic dentistry treatments that can help you conquer these cosmetic issues and claim a beautiful smile.

While many patients first think of traditional braces when it comes time to perfect their smiles. Our Saint Louis Lumineers dentists offer a fast and effective alternative to conventional braces. Let’s learn more about the aesthetic results that you can accomplish with porcelain Lumineers.

When a patient uses braces to straighten his or her smile, a metal wire is attached to metal brackets, which are attached to the patient’s teeth. The torque from this wire moves the teeth into better alignment over a period of time (often around two years).

As you probably already know, wearing braces can be disruptive to the patient’s live, and somewhat uncomfortable. If you want to perfect the appearance of your smile without the hassle, you might be a good candidate for Lumineers.

Lumineers are exceptionally thin porcelain cosmetic restorations that our dentist attaches to the patient’s teeth in order to improve the overall appearance of the smile. Because we are able to design your Lumineers to fit your needs, we can actually make your smile look better aligned, and eliminate gaps between your teeth.

This entire treatment process is fast and efficient—we can often completely transform a patient’s smile in just three dental appointments. This treatment process is also remarkably comfortable, because it does not require much natural tooth structure reduction.

Our Saint Louis Lumineer dentists are here to answer all of the questions that you may have about cosmetic treatment. Please call our office to get started—you can even schedule a consultation with our dental team to receive more personalized dental recommendations.
