If you are not satisfied with the look of your teeth, then porcelain lumineers might be a good option for you. Lumineers are a form of veneers, which is a ceramic material that goes over the top of your teeth and allows them to look a lot better than they look previously. They are able to hide many different flaws that you may have in your teeth, from uneven, stained and discolored to chipped teeth. With traditional veneers, the dentist must shape/grind down on some of the enamel of your teeth so that the veneers will fit properly and comfortably in your mouth.
Lumineers are porcelain veneers that are made to fit your teeth perfectly without needing to grind any of your natural teeth away for them to fit in your mouth and on your teeth naturally. These types of veneers have many benefits. It only takes a few visits to get them placed on your teeth and they will be aligned better than ever before.
Many people wonder what the major differences are between Lumineers and veneers. Here are the similarities. They both go on the visible areas of your teeth and nowhere else. They are both designed to help perfect the look of the teeth by hiding stains and other problems. They both are very natural looking. Both are available from your Phoenix cosmetic dentist.
As far as differences between porcelain lumineers and porcelain veneers, there are a few. Lumineers can be removed at some point, while veneers are designed to be a permanent solution. Also, the traditional veneers require some grinding of your natural teeth to make room, whereas the Lumineers don’t require that at all. To conclude, not every person is a candidate for porcelain lumineers, but if you are, then porcelain lumineers are a great alternative to traditional veneers.
Ask your dentist about porcelain lumineers and see if they are right for you.
