Written by Dr. Grayem on Jan 28, 2014

Our Saint Louis LUMINEERS dentist office receives many questions from patients about how LUMINEERS work. That is why today we have put together this list of questions and answers for you to peruse. After reading this article, I hope that you will have a better idea of how LUMINEERS function, and whether or not they may be useful for you.

Q: How many LUMINEERS do I need to have placed?
A: The exact number of LUMINEERS from which you would benefit will depend on what you want to improve about your smile. The great news is that you have the freedom to pick as many or as few LUMINEERS as you would like. Some patients transform all of their teeth with LUMINEERS, while others benefit from a single LUMINEER.

Q: How long will I have to wait to see my smile improve?
A: Our dental team can generally complete LUMINEERS’ treatment in just a few dental appointments. As soon as our dental team attaches your LUMINEERS to your natural enamel, you can be on your way with a more attractive smile!

Q: What are LUMINEERS made out of?
A: LUMINEERS are all made of thin Cerinate porcelain. Porcelain looks like natural enamel, so this material is what allows your LUMINEERS to blend with your natural teeth. You do not have to worry about your post-treatment smile looking flat, fake, or artificial. Your LUMINEERS will be attached to your dental enamel with a dental-grade adhesive.
