What are Lumineers? 
Similar to traditional veneers, Lumineers are thin porcelain shells which fit over the fronts of the teeth. A dental laboratory crafts Lumineers customized especially for your smile. This ensures the perfect fit and most natural look. Lumineers are made to last, being durable enough to last over 20 years.

What is the difference between Lumineers and traditional veneers? 
Perhaps the biggest difference is that Lumineers are approximately 0.2 millimeters thick, about half the thickness of traditional veneers. When placing traditional veneers, your Suwanee dentist must prepare the tooth by shaving a small amount of enamel from the front. Lumineers require no preparation and no dental drills. Cutting out this step of the process saves on time and allows Lumineers to be placed without any damage to the natural tooth. This also means that, if necessary, Lumineers are completely reversible. Additionally, the material from which Lumineers are made is highly translucent, allowing the most natural appearance possible.

Are Lumineers right for me? 
If you have one of the following imperfections in your smile, you could benefit from Lumineers:

  • chipped teeth
  • cracked teeth
  • heavily stained or discolored teeth
  • gaps or overlaps
  • slightly crowded teeth

Furthermore, Lumineers can renew old dental restorations like crowns which have remained their original color while the teeth around it have changed. Slightly crooked teeth may be corrected using Lumineers though they do not replace the need for necessary orthodontic treatment. Lumineers can also change the length of the teeth and line up uneven teeth.

For more information on Lumineers, please contact your dentist at Dentistry 4 You in Suwanee, GA. Call (770) 614-3232 to speak with an associate about scheduling your consultation for Lumineers today!
