What Are Lumineers?
Lumineers are thin shells made of zirconia. By placing the thin shells over the surface of your teeth, they help mask imperfections and create a more uniform and visually appealing smile. Lumineers are popular not only for their simplicity but their ability to withstand years of biting and chewing without degrading. Additionally, they're versatile and can either restore a single tooth or multiple teeth, depending on your needs.
5 Benefits of Lumineers
There are various benefits to Lumineers that can make them an ideal choice for patients with a wide variety of dental problems. When you visit our practice for the first time, our dentist will sit down with you to determine if you're an ideal candidate for Lumineers and whether they can help you accomplish your cosmetic goals. Some benefits of Lumineers include, but are not limited to:
- Reshaping teeth that are either misshapen or too small
- Concealing minor, aesthetic issues like chips and cracks in your teeth
- Reducing unwanted gaps in your teeth
- Covering severe tooth staining and discoloration
- Correcting minor misalignment issues
Our Lumineers Process
To receive your Manhattan Lumineers, there are various steps that are typically completed in two visits. We'll begin the process with a thorough examination of your smile. It helps us identify potential dental complications like cavities that would prevent you from receiving Lumineers. From there, we'll figure out the ideal shape, shade, and placement of your Lumineers. We'll then take digital impressions of your smile to be sent out to a local lab.
Once your Lumineers come back from the lab, we'll place them over your teeth. Our practice is committed to preserving as much of your natural teeth as possible and will not adjust any area of your enamel for the placement of your Lumineers. We'll also take this time to make any necessary adjustments to your Lumineers so that they fit securely and comfortably.
At Lee Dental and Facial, we know that getting Lumineers can be a significant decision. That's why our team is here to answer any questions you may have. From breaking down the placement process to explaining the materials we use, our team is here for you. Some frequently asked questions about our Manhattan Lumineers include:
It's crucial that you maintain proper oral care, including regular brushing and flossing. Although there are very few dietary restrictions associated with dental Lumineers, we recommend reducing biting into or chewing hard foods like nuts and hard candy. In addition, wearing protective mouthguards when you participate in physical activities like sports can help preserve your Lumineers.
Although there are similarities between Lumineers and veneers, there are distinct differences that separate the two. For instance, Lumineers are ultra-thin and don't require buffering your teeth for placement.
How long your Lumineers last depends on how well you care for them. With proper oral care and regular dental visits, you can expect your veneers to last well over a decade.
Although it's important you reduce your consumption of darkly pigmented foods and drinks like coffee, tea, and tomato sauce, your Lumineers are resistant to changes in shade. If your Lumineers are beginning to stain, contact our office to schedule the placement of new ones.
Because Lumineers don't require any adjustment of your teeth, you can expect to experience little to no sensitivity following their placement.
Crowns are restorations designed to replace your tooth's entire crown, whereas Lumineers are designed to replace the surface of your teeth while keeping the remaining dental material in place.
