What Are Lumineers?

Lumineers are ultra-thin, durable ceramic shells that can be placed over any teeth that you feel need aesthetic repair. Unlike traditional porcelain veneers, Lumineers don’t require any kind of special preparation of your natural teeth in order to be permanently bonded to your teeth. They can simply be placed over your problem teeth to give the appearance of a naturally perfect smile.

Benefits of Lumineers

These restorations can repair a number of imperfections in your smile, such as:

  • Stains and discoloration
  • Cracks and chips
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Slightly crooked or rotated teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Uneven or misshapen teeth

If you’ve noticed any of these cosmetic flaws in your smile, it’s time to visit your Katy dentist to see whether Lumineers can correct them. Not only is the placement procedure completely pain-free, but after just two visits, you can have a beautiful smile fit for the silver screen.

Some advantages of Lumineers over porcelain veneers include:

  • Little or no tooth enamel must be removed
  • Less tooth sensitivity
  • Quicker procedure
  • Can be removed if later on you decide they’re not for you

The Lumineers Process

Altogether, getting Lumineers should take only two appointments. At your initial consultation, one of our dentists will sit down with you and discuss your goals for your smile. Once we determine that Lumineers are the appropriate way to achieve your desired smile, we’ll begin treatment as soon as possible. We’ll start by taking detailed impressions of your teeth, which we’ll send to our dental lab. From there, a skilled dental ceramist will craft your custom Lumineers and deliver them to our office.

A few weeks later, when your Lumineers are ready, you’ll return to our office. The only preparation we’ll need is to lightly etch your teeth to ensure your restorations will be permanently attached. Once they have been bonded, we’ll check your bite and make any adjustments as needed.

Caring for Your Lumineers

For the first 24-48 hours after receiving your Lumineers, we recommend sticking to a soft food diet, as your teeth may be slightly sensitive. After that, however, Lumineers should not restrict your diet in any way.

Maintaining your Lumineers is actually fairly similar to caring for your natural teeth. Brush and floss daily as you normally would, and keep up with your regular checkups and cleanings every six months. Even though Lumineers are quite durable, they can still break if you bite down on hard objects like ice or pens. Therefore, we suggest quitting these habits and wearing a nightguard if your grind or clench your teeth while you sleep.
