In the past, patients didn’t have much insight into how their smile would look after having veneers placed. Results were only visible after veneers were permanently bonded to the teeth’ surface, which made the entire process unsettling for some patients.
Modern innovation at Hinsdale Dentistry has enabled us to provide our patients with the opportunity to design their smile by experiencing a “Trial Smile” before undergoing Lumineers.
With Lumineers, you’ll receive a gorgeous smile that is uniquely yours, and a Trial Smile will allow you to make adjustments or changes before your final look is permanently placed.
Achieve a Perfect Smile With Lumineers
Your entire appearance can be transformed with Lumineers. These porcelain shells are permanently bonded to your teeth and can quickly makeover virtually any smile defect. From stains and discolorations to chips and misalignment, Lumineers can help. Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers are so thin that there’s virtually no enamel removed to have them placed.
Unique benefits of Lumineers include:
Little to no preparation
Preservation of tooth structure over traditional veneers
Lumineers are incredibly similar to traditional veneers in almost every way. The significant difference is the thin-ness of Lumineers. Traditional veneers are thicker, which requires more extensive removal of vital tooth structure. This removal process requires injections to minimize potential sensitivity during the veneer process. Lumineers are just as strong and durable as traditional veneers, but they are about the thickness of a contact lens and require minimal removal of the tooth structure. The ultra-thin design of Lumineers allows for a seamless bond over your teeth to deliver a natural-looking smile.
How a Trial Smile Works
Another incredible and unique benefit of choosing Lumineers is the Trial Smile process. You will have the opportunity to wear your new temporary Lumineers for two weeks before they are permanently adhered to the surface of your teeth. The Trial Smile process gives Lumineer patients the ability to try on their new smile and make minor modifications if necessary. Once the look of your Trial Smile is approved, your final veneers will be custom-made to match. The day your Lumineers are placed, you will have nothing but confidence that you’re going to love your new smile.
The Trial Smile Process
Our advanced technology at Hinsdale Dentistry makes it possible for our patients to design their new smile and try it out before making anything permanent. Digital impressions and facial dimensions are taken with our state-of-the-art iTero digital scanning system. iTero is a comfortable, safe, and precise method for taking an impression while ensuring an accurate model and superior treatment results.
Patients can try different veneer options and know what to expect from the Lumineer process to eliminate any potential anxiety. We involve each patient in the design of their smile, with the option to adjust and change the shape or shade before the final look is decided.
Once the final smile is selected, patients will wear temporary veneers while waiting for their custom Lumineers. Every patient has complete control over the look of their beautiful, new smile, which eliminates any worry or fear during the process.
