Innumerable patients have walked through our doors with an interest in making a change to their smiles. Genetic predisposition, habits, wear, and time often leave our grins a long way from what we’d choose. Tailor-making your own teeth is now a possibility. Patients seeking superficial changes of any kind have found solace in LUMINEERS.
Ultra Thin Porcelain Veneers
Standard veneers are already wonderful dental tools. These v-shaped shells bond to natural tooth surfaces, creating new, enamel-like layers. They allow Dr. Kazbanov to alter your front teeth in nearly any way you see fit, employing individual veneers (for specific alterations) or full sets (for a smile makeover). Veneers are the longest-lasting and most natural-looking way to change the appearance of your smile.
LUMINEERS Are Limitless
LUMINEERS manage to improve on these incredible capabilities. Thinner than their counterparts, LUMINEERS transform the veneer procedure. In order to receive veneers, most patients will need their natural teeth reduced, so that the veneers will fit without looking bulky. This means anesthesia, drilling, and temporaries between appointments.
We strive to find ways to make our patients as comfortable as possible, and LUMINEERS provide assistance. They can often be no-prep veneers, meaning that patients retain their entire natural teeth. This means no shots, no use of the drill, and no need for temporaries – and we like the sound of that. Our patients agree, finding their LUMINEERS appointments to be unbelievably pleasant and the results life-changing.
Transforming Your Smile Couldn’t Be Any Easier
It takes just 2 easy visits to your dentist to bring out your beautiful smile with Lumineers. Getting started couldn’t be easier. Here’s how it works:
After your initial consultation, your Certified Lumineers Dentist will take an impression of your upper and lower teeth, and send the mold to an authorized Lumineers labratory along with photos and other records that ensure the very best case for you. Unlike traditional veneers, there is typically no need for extensive drilling, shots or unsightly acrylic temporaries.
On your next visit, generally a couple weeks later, your dentist will place your Lumineers. Before Lumineers are bonded in place, it is important to try them on to ensure a good fit. Teeth are then moderately etched to prepare for placement and then bonded one by one. Your dentist will then check your bite to make sure your contacts are balanced to avoid chipping your Lumineers through the course of daily function.
That’s it. In only 2 easy and comfortable dental visits, you can have the beautiful natural looking smile you want!
The Look of LUMINEERS
We’ve mentioned that porcelain is the most natural-looking dental material. When in a thin layer, it reflects light the way natural enamel does, leaving your veneers indistinguishable from natural teeth. Porcelain veneers may also be made in any shade, so they’ll match your other teeth perfectly. Your LUMINEERS will be invisible in your smile – the only thing people will notice are your absolutely beautiful teeth.
