If you’re dissatisfied with how your teeth look, we at ISmile Specialists have a perfect solution for you. Lumineers can correct a variety of cosmetic issues, including size, color, shape, and gaps. Our Sugar Land cosmetic dentist will change it for you and leave you with a smile that you can be proud of.
Lumineers are a brand name of veneers. All veneers are thin shells made of ceramic, that are placed over the fronts of your teeth and then bonded. Lumineers offer additional advantages over generic veneers. For example, they are even thinner so you get to keep most of your original tooth structure in the process. They are also highly translucent, providing you with an appearance that is remarkably similar to that of your natural teeth. They can even be used by our Sugar Land cosmetic dentist in place of braces when you have a minimal amount of tooth misalignment.
What are some of the reasons why you would consider veneers or Lumineers? Teeth that are discolored or stained, misshapen, chipped, decayed, too small, or simply have gaps between them that are too large. The good news is that one set of Lumineers or veneers covers all of that territory, giving you an appearance that may have seemed impossible before you got started. To get started, you will need to be examined by our Sugar Land cosmetic dentist to ensure that you’re a good candidate for this procedure.
Usually, the work itself will require two sessions. At the first, your teeth will be prepared for the veneers or Lumineers with a buffing that will remove a very small amount of your tooth thickness. Little or no anesthesia is generally needed for this and you should expect the appointment to last about an hour. An impression of your teeth will be taken by our Sugar Land cosmetic dentist. This will be sent to the dental lab. If desired, a temporary veneer can be placed between sessions. When you return, your new Lumineers or veneers will be fitted, adjusted if needed, and bonded. The proper color will be determined, based on your current and desired shade. One to two hours are required for this session. You can expect your veneers or Lumineers to last ten years or more, with proper care.
