For a person to feel confident about himself, a smile plays a major role, and having a good set of clean and aligned teeth is very important. If your teeth are stained or are chipped off, it might affect your self-esteem as well. Lumineers' placement procedure by SimpliSmiles can help you with that.
What are Lumineers?
The regular intake of coffee, wine, etc. can result in discoloration or stains in your teeth that have to be cleaned. For the purpose of hiding the stains on the teeth, veneers are used. These are the thin coverings that are placed on the front part of the tooth, and they look exactly like the natural teeth.
Lumineers are a brand of veneers that are ultra-thin (like the contact lens) and are digitally designed so that they can be perfectly fitted over the teeth and give out an appearance of natural-looking teeth.
There are different types of veneers, of which some are made of porcelain, and others are made of resins. For making lumineers, the material used is an ultra-thin laminate called Cerinate instead of porcelain.
Lumineer Placement Procedure
During the procedure, lumineers are directly adhered to the affected teeth. It is a non-invasive and completely reversible procedure.
In the case of veneers, it requires shots and anesthesia to lower the pain, but in lumineers, you don't need any of these. Also, there's no need for additional grinding of your natural teeth, unlike veneer.
Advantages of Dental Lumineers
Let's look at some of the advantages associated with the lumineers:
- It helps you maintain your natural look.
- The treatment is faster compared to the veneers.
- If you are unhappy with the results, you can get it removed without any trouble.
- They cost less than the usual porcelain veneers to boot.
- The durability of the lumineers is pretty good.
