Have you been looking for a way to improve the appearance of your smile? You’ve probably noticed that there are many cosmetic options available today—our Saint Louis cosmetic dentist office is here to help you understand these options and choose the treatment that’s right for you. Today we’re going to be talking about the differences between traditional veneers and LUMINEERS—specifically how LUMINEERS improve on traditional veneer technology.
Both LUMINEERS and veneers are used to cover existing teeth in order to make them look more attractive. If you have cracked/chipped teeth, stained enamel, misaligned teeth, or large gaps between your smile, this treatment protocol may be right for you.
While both LUMINEERS and veneers are attached to existing teeth in order to improve the aesthetics of a patient’s smile, LUMINEERS are crafted to be thinner than traditional veneers. LUMINEERS are made of Cerinate porcelain—so they remain strong and durable while being thin. Why does it matter that LUMINEERS are so thin?
Maintain Your Teeth
In order for a dentist to place veneers, he or she must shave down the affected teeth—the veneer is then placed over the diminished tooth. Thin LUMINEERS do not require the same level of healthy tooth destruction. This means that your teeth will remain whole and strong under your LUMINEERS.
LUMINEERS treatment is also quite comfortable. Because our dentist does not have to shave off a considerable amount of healthy tooth structure, you don’t have to undergo potentially uncomfortable procedures.
As you can see, LUMINEERS can give you the smile you’ve been dreaming of without drastic dental procedures. Give our Saint Louis LUMINEERS dentists a call to learn more about this exciting cosmetic treatment and to schedule your consultation. It’s easier than you think to get the stunning smile that you deserve!
