Lumineers are a fast, beautiful way to transform your smile. Made of wafer-thin cerinate porcelain, Lumineers are designed to fit over your teeth similar to how an artificial nail fits over your nail. As Lumineers are known as the no-prep veneer, there is usually no need for preparation, and this conserves the natural structure of your tooth. Our Northridge Lumineers expert can help you decide if Lumineers are right for you.
Our expert in Lumineers in Northridge may recommend Lumineers if you have:
• Teeth that have minor chips, cracks or fractures
• Teeth that are gapped or badly spaced
• Teeth with worn enamel
• Teeth that have stains or intrinsic discolorations
• Teeth that are small or uneven in size
Unlike conventional veneers, Lumineers can be placed right over the teeth without any drilling or enamel reduction. Similar to traditional veneers, Lumineers offer the beautiful translucence of natural dental enamel. The cerinate porcelain is so strong that it can be made as thin as a contact lens without compromising durability. At your appointment, our Northridge Lumineers expert will work with you to design your smile. This process is detailed, and we take as much time as we need to get it perfectly right. You may even have the chance to virtually try on your new smile at the consultation so that you can be completely confident in your new look.
Once we have your look finalized, we will then send your records and information to the Lumineers lab, and they will then customize your Lumineers. Each Lumineer is carefully crafted to fit your smile and give you superior results. Once they are finished, our expert in Lumineers in Northridge will check their fit and ensure their aesthetic results before bonding them to the teeth.
Lumineers can last up to 15 years or longer with the right care and treatment. The best way to get the most out of your new smile is through excellent dental hygiene. Good brushing and flossing habits, preventive treatments and regular checkups are all important for the upkeep of Lumineers. Do not use your teeth as tools, and skip foods that are particularly hard or chewy, such as popcorn kernels or sticky caramels.
