Lumineers® are a slimmer alternative to traditional porcelain veneers. Both of these restorations are custom-made shells that cover the front surfaces of teeth to make corrections. Their size can reduce the degree of preparatory work involved, preserving more of your enamel. This can be helpful to those patients who are already dealing with excess enamel erosion or have naturally weaker tooth structure.
Like traditional veneers, Lumineers are permanent shells made from porcelain that cover the front surfaces of teeth. What separates them is their slimmer design. While they take up less space, they can still take on many issues that motivate people to seek cosmetic dentistry. Your procedure can help you with:
- Teeth that appear dull or discolored (including those affected by intrinsic discoloration)
- Problems with teeth that are misshapen or worn
- Minor chips or cracks
- Trouble with poor teeth spacing
If you are interested in what cosmetic dentistry can do for you, we can discuss the benefits of this service as well as treatment options like tooth bonding and contouring, and care with traditional veneers.
The use of Lumineers makes cosmetic work more conservative while still taking on many problems at one time. If you would like to learn more about the role that these restorations can play in improving your appearance, please contact our Prairie Village, KS dental office at (913) 901-8585.
