With our commitment to helping you achieve the brightest, most attractive smile possible, we at Dental Partners of Boston are pleased to offer Lumineers as a treatment option for our patients.
Lumineers are a type of porcelain dental veneers. Through the application of Lumineers, patients can have noticeably whiter and straighter smiles. Lumineers are often used as an enduring solution for teeth that are misaligned, chipped, stained, or discolored. If you have already had dental work done, Lumineers can still be applied to your teeth without the need to replace the existing work.
Lumineers can be applied in only two dental visits. In the first visit, our trained professional dentists create a mold of your lower and upper teeth by taking an impression. After this accurate mold of your teeth is taken, it is used to create your custom Lumineers.
During your second visit, we take the time to make sure that the Lumineers are a good and comfortable fit on your teeth. Once that confirmation has been made, your dentist etches your teeth and begins the placement and bonding procedure. Once the Lumineers are applied, the dentist ensures they’re not impeding your bite or positioned in a way likely to cause damage.
Traditional veneers require a more aggressive approach that can cause long-term damage to your tooth structure. With Lumineers, none of your dental enamel will be removed, so your tooth structure will stay solid. Take a look at some of these perks to using Lumineers:
If you feel insecure about the cosmetic appearance of your teeth, Lumineers might be a way for you to feel confident about your smile again. If you have any questions about Lumineers, please contact Dental Partners of Boston at your earliest convenience. Smile consultations can be scheduled with one of the skilled dentists at our dental office in Boston.
