Why We Love Lumineers

If you’re looking to improve your smile, but the thought of veneers scares you, Lumineers might be the perfect solution. Unlike thick traditional veneers, Lumineers are ultra-thin alternatives made of translucent porcelain. Lumineers allow you to reshape and whiten your teeth, while still giving you a natural look. This is because Lumineers mimic the look of enamel. Even though they are about as thin as a contact lens, they are extremely durable, and generally last for 20 years. It’s no surprise that at Dental Partners of Boston, your Boston cosmetic dentists, we frequently suggest Lumineers to patients who want to beautify their pearly whites. Keep reading for just a couple of the many reasons we love Lumineers.

A Simple Way to a Hollywood Smile

One of the greatest advantages of Lumineers is their simplicity. The process consists of only two visits to our office. During the first visit, one of our clinicians will take a mold of your teeth. The mold is sent to a Lumineers laboratory for manufacturing. We will also send pictures and information so that the technician can create the best fit for your mouth.

Two or three weeks after your initial appointment we will fit the Lumineers to your teeth. Before the Lumineers are bonded to your teeth, you have the opportunity to feel how they fit in your mouth to ensure that they are comfortable. After you’ve confirmed that they fit correctly, we bond the Lumineers to your natural teeth and that’s it. Lumineers are a comfortable and easy way to get the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

A Noninvasive Way to Improve Your Pearly Whites

Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers require very little or no removal of the natural tooth, leaving your original smile strong and healthy. Because we don’t have to file down the original tooth, Lumineers don’t leave your teeth sensitive. They are a comfortable fit right away. Not having to alter your natural teeth also means that should you decide later to remove your Lumineers, you can do that.

Our Boston cosmetic dentists are anxious to give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of with Lumineers. If you want a painless, simple, noninvasive way to straighten, whiten, brighten, or reshape your teeth, contact Dental Partners of Boston to learn more about how Lumineers could be a perfect fit for you.
