Saint Louis LUMINEERS Dentist Uses LUMINEERS to Make Teeth Appear Better Proportioned

Written by Dr. Grayem on Jul 17, 2013

Many patients come in to our Saint Louis cosmetic dentist office wanting to not only lighten or straighten the appearance of their smile, but to actually change the shapes and sizes of some of their teeth. If you have a tooth, or multiple teeth, that appear poorly shaped or proportioned, we do offer cosmetic treatments that can help you. LUMINEERS can completely transform the appearance of your smile and make your teeth look balanced! Read on to learn more about how this treatment works…

LUMINEERS are porcelain restorations that are designed to totally cover your existing tooth. Consequently, our dentist can use LUMINEERS to make your tooth look larger than it actually is.

For example, if you have a short tooth, a dental LUMINEER will make your tooth appear longer. The LUMINEER will actually extend past the natural border of your tooth. Once the LUMINEER is applied, it will simply look like you have a longer, better-proportioned tooth!

Narrow teeth can likewise be made to look wider with dental LUMINEERS. By crafting your LUMINEER to be slightly wider than your natural tooth, your teeth will look more balanced. Slightly widening your dental LUMINEERS can also close the appearance of gaps in your smile without using orthodontic treatment.

If you want to refine the appearance of your smile, dental LUMINEERS can help you achieve your dental goals in only a few dental appointments. The entire LUMINEERS process can often be completed in just two or three dental visits. So you can get the smile you have been dreaming of and get on with your regular life!
