Our Madison Wi Cosmetic Dentists can use lumineers to change your smile.
Our dentists can apply these contact lens-thin "smile shapers" to teeth without any grinding or shaving, transforming teeth into a naturally beautiful smile that looks perfect for every individual. Lumineers can even be placed by our cosmetic dentistry professionals over existing dental crown or bridgework without having to replace them. Lumineers are the painless, permanent cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discolored or misaligned teeth.
Advantages of Lumineer Porcelain Tooth Veneers
Made of Cerinate porcelain, Lumineers are a new type of porcelain veneers. They are contact lens-thin, roughly .2 mm thick. Little to no tooth reduction in most cases is necessary with this type of veneer and anesthetics or numbing shots are not needed. It is claimed that Lumineers resist micro-leakage and micro-cracking moreso than traditional porcelain veneers. Unlike other porcelain veneers, you won't need to wear temporary veneers until the Lumineers are created. Lumineers are expected to last just as long as traditional porcelain veneers. Lumineers are reversible if no tooth reduction was necessary when they were first done. Cost is less than traditional porcelain veneers.
Disadvantages of Lumineer Porcelain Tooth Veneers
When you are exploring cosmetic dentistry options, our dentists will review the best options for you based on your dental health and your cosmetic dentistry goals. Lumineers are not the best option for all patients. As there is little to no tooth reduction needed for Lumineer porcelain veneers, there is a limit to how much smile correction can be accomplished. Our cosmetic dentistry experts will work with you to help you make the best cosmetic dentistry decisions. By doing so, we help you avoid one potential disadvantage of choosing lumineers if it's not the best option for you, which is potentially bulky appearing and feeling veneers in some cases, if lumineers aren't your best option. Your cosmetic dentistry expert will be able to guide you in making the best decisions to meet your smile goals.
