Lumineers don’t require the need for anesthesia (numbness) of the teeth, as they are ultra-thin so they can be applied seamlessly over your existing teeth in only two easy visits to our clinic.
Lumineers are unique in that they are ultra-thin (approximately 0.2 mm) and highly translucent, allowing them to replicate the natural appearance of enamel. They are about as thin as a contact lens, so they can be applied to your teeth seamlessly. Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers generally need little to no tooth preparation, so they eliminate the need for shots and temporary veneers
After your initial consultation, our specialist prosthodontist will take an impression of your upper and lower teeth, and send the mold to an authorized Lumineers laboratory 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.
