Here’s what you should know before saying “yes” to Lumineers.
If you are living with a discolored, misshapen, or all-around imperfect smile you may be looking for a quick, easy fix to hide these flaws and to achieve the smile you want. Here in Tallahassee, FL, our cosmetic dentists Dr. James Walton and Dr. David Cardman offer Lumineers to those who want to achieve the perfect smile without resorting to extensive cosmetic treatments.
What can Lumineers fix?
Since Lumineers cover the front surface of your teeth, they can hide a wide range of imperfections while also adjusting and altering your smile’s shape, length, and size to match your specific needs. Lumineers are customized to your smile. Our Tallahassee, FL, practice often placed Lumineers to cover,
- Internal stains and discolorations that don’t respond to whitening treatment
- Chipped teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked or misaligned teeth
- Misshapen or excessively small teeth
Lumineers are stain-resistant, which means that you won’t have to worry about discolorations in your smile ever again. Along with custom designing Lumineers that fit the ideal length and shape that you want, we can also provide you with Lumineers that are incredibly white and radiant.
Are Lumineers the same things as dental veneers?
While they work in the same way, they are a bit different. What makes Lumineers different from traditional veneers is that these high-quality porcelain shells are even thinner than regular dental veneers. Since they are thinner, this requires little to no removal of tooth enamel before placing them, which makes this treatment completely non-invasive. Plus, they reflect light just like real teeth, so they really do look like the real thing.
How do I care for my Lumineers?
While Lumineers are easy to care for it’s still important that you maintain good oral hygiene so you can keep your Lumineers feeling and looking their best. This requires everyone to not only brush and floss every day but also to visit their dentist every six months for checkups. We want to ensure that you maintain your new smile for as long as possible.
