Dental Lumineers quiz

If you’ve always been less than in love with the appearance of your smile, you’ve likely thought of cosmetic dentistry treatments and how they could potentially transform your teeth. If your teeth aren’t necessarily crooked, but they are perhaps small, various extreme shapes, or even stained, Invisalign or braces won’t solve these issues.

By taking our smile makeover quiz below, we can help you better understand if you may be a great candidate for Lumineers. Lumineers are a life-changing cosmetic dentistry treatment that can correct stained, crooked, misaligned, or misshapen teeth. They apply seamlessly over your existing teeth to create a beautiful, natural-looking smile. The application technique is painless and minimally invasive, with no anesthesia or drilling required.
