Lumineers in Manteca CA
If your teeth need gentle beautification and you’re looking for a cosmetic treatment that covers a variety of needs within only one to two visits, consider Lumineers. For patients with sensitive teeth who are looking to improve the brightness and overall shape of their teeth, Lumineers offer an expedient way to create a more beautiful, uniform smile.
What Are Lumineers?
Lumineers are a brand of porcelain veneers, and are slightly different than traditional veneers. Composed of extremely thin porcelain that is no thicker than a contact lens, Lumineers cover the visible surface of your teeth. They can improve the appearance of your teeth by camouflaging discoloration, improving tooth shape, hiding small chips, and improving the appearance of mildly crooked teeth.
How Do You Place Them?
Unlike traditional porcelain veneers, which may require the removal of a small portion of your teeth, Dr. Damle will place Lumineers directly onto your tooth. When you come in for your consultation, if Dr. Damle determines your teeth need only minor improvement and that your tooth’s surface is sound for Lumineers adhesion, we will begin by taking impressions of your teeth. We will send the impressions to a Lumineers-certified lab where a master ceramicist will craft custom-fitted Lumineers using digital 3D technology. During your follow-up visit, Dr. Damle will use an adhesive that bonds the Lumineers to your teeth. Because of their durability, you can treat and care for your Lumineers-covered-teeth like your natural teeth, without worrying about what you eat or drink. In addition, Lumineers are removable because your natural tooth remains intact beneath, if you ever decide to reverse the cosmetic restoration.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If your teeth primarily need cosmetic improvement, and you simply want a gentle smile makeover for a more dazzling, beautiful smile, you are a good candidate for Lumineers. They can make your teeth appear straighter, whiter, and more beautifully shaped. Thinner than traditional veneers, and more translucent, these cosmetic restorations measure approximately 0.2mm in thickness. They correct minor imperfections and can last up to 20 years. If Dr. Damle determines that your teeth need no prep work, Lumineers are a solid choice.
