There are many reasons why teeth appear to be various shapes and sizes. Wear and tear, grinding or clenching, impacted or missing teeth, or how you bite and chew are just a few of the reasons why your teeth might be misshapen. But all you need to know to create a beautiful new smile is one word … Lumineers.
Lumineers is the brand name representing one of the most exciting cosmetic dental procedures available to give you a smile makeover in just a few brief visits to your cosmetic dentist.
Lumineers are veneers and are used quite often as the answer to repair teeth that are misshapen, stained or discolored, chipped or cracked or virtually any other reason to seek that new smile.

A dental veneer is a very thin shell like cover made from porcelain that is designed to be placed on your existing teeth to hide that reason why you never smile. The advantage to Lumineers over any other dental veneer is that they are ultra-thin allowing your cosmetic dentist to place them without having to remove any of the enamel of your natural tooth.
Since your natural tooth is not altered in any way, this makes Lumineers the answer for patients who experience dental anxiety. There is no need for anesthetic and no fear of discomfort because all you have to do is sit back and wait while your dentist applies your Lumineers over your existing teeth.
The preparation process for your new smile involves taking dental impressions of your teeth. Photographs are often taken as well. Your cosmetic dentist will consult with you as to exactly what look you wish to achieve and will discuss the shape and shade you desire for your new smile.
The dental lab will formulate your new dental veneers and in your next visit your cosmetic dentist will be able to complete your smile makeover. The result will make you wonder what took you so long to see your dentist to enjoy a beautiful new smile.
