Perfectly White & Beautiful Smiles with Lumineers

Lumineers are extremely thin porcelain dental veneers that are custom made to give you a perfectly white and beautiful smile. They offer a painless solution for patients who wish to transform the way they look. Lumineers are made from a more durable material than traditional dental veneers and are thinner than most porcelain veneers. Lumineers can be as thin as 0.3 millimeters, while traditional porcelain veneers are generally 0.5 millimeters thick. This allows Lumineers to be placed by your dentist directly over unprepared teeth – in some cases, with no grinding or shaving required! Because your natural teeth do not have to be prepared as much, receiving Lumineers is a relatively painless procedure.

Lumineers are the ideal solution for people who are unsatisfied with their natural teeth. Lumineers are perfect for those with crooked teeth or a misaligned smile. They also work well for people with severe tooth discoloration or those who feel that their teeth are either too large or too small for their face. Even if your teeth are worn or chipped, Lumineers can eliminate these problems. Many patients who have an unsightly gap between their front teeth also feel that Lumineers are perfect for correcting this problem. The team at New Smile Dental has the necessary experience to place your Lumineers and give you a sparkling smile.

The process for receiving Lumineers generally only requires two visits to Dr. Lopez. On your first visit, he will take a precise impression of your teeth and determine the perfect shade of white for your veneers. Next, New Smile Dental will send your impression to DenMat Lab so that your custom Lumineers can be made. There is sometimes no need to wear temporary veneers between visits, since your natural teeth will not be affected. On your second visit, Dr. Lopez will check your Lumineers to make sure they are the right shade and that they fit comfortably. Finally, Dr. Lopez will painlessly apply your Lumineers with no drilling or shots required. You will leave your final appointment with a new, confident smile.
