A Seamless Transition
If you’ve been disappointed with your smile for some time now and want a permanent solution, you may be a great candidate for Lumineers. We specialize in this type of cosmetic dentistry here at Metroplex Implants and Family Dentistry, based in Dallas.
Lumineers are basically a specific brand of dental veneer manufactured by the DenMat company. This product differs from most other types of dental veneers in that they are much thinner, featuring a translucent appearance. Backed by technology honed over 30 years, Lumineers are digitally crafted to be about as thin as a contact lens, so they can be applied seamlessly over your teeth to deliver a natural looking smile. This makes them appear virtually identical to real tooth enamel. There are many benefits to Lumineers, such as:
- Your tooth enamel does not need to be shaved down in order to install Lumineers, unlike other types of veneers.
- They are durable, lasting up to 20 years and beyond.
- In most cases, the process for getting Lumineers only requires two office visits.
- Tooth color can be matched perfectly for a seamless transition.
- They are custom made for your teeth.
By contrast, traditional veneers are thicker and require aggressive removal of healthy tooth structure, featuring an extensive preparation process involving shots and anesthesia. In addition, traditional veneers require placement of acrylic temporaries for a couple of weeks in between office visits. Lumineers, on the other hand, employ a less invasive technique that results in a custom product that uniquely fits you. Here at Metroplex Implants and Family Dentistry, our dentists are highly trained and certified in Lumineers — a qualification not every dentist can claim.
The whole process takes just two visits. During the first appointment, our dentists will create a mold of your upper and lower teeth. At that visit, you will also choose the color veneers you would prefer. Once we have the molds and your color preferences, we send them to DenMat, an authorized Lumineers laboratory, where they manufacture your custom veneers. We also send along photos and dental records to help the process along.
When they arrive back from DenMat (usually within a couple of weeks), we call you to schedule an appointment for installation. The entire process of installing Lumineers should only take about an hour. They are bonded into place, and then some etching may occur to prepare the surface for placement. Your Lumineers are then bonded one by one. Our dentists will check your bite to ensure a healthy smile and bite that won’t be destroyed through daily eating habits.
Considering veneers? Why not go with the best and get Lumineers for the best results? When you come in for your initial consultation, we can go over everything to expect so you feel at ease and comfortable. It all starts with that first phone call!
