Have you ever noticed that celebrities all have perfectly straight, bright stunning teeth? There are very few people lucky enough to have been born with the perfect smile, so the odds are that most of these celebrities have had some cosmetic dental work done to achieve their flawless "Hollywood smile."
In your own life, you know that a healthy, attractive smile is necessary for conveying a positive first impression. You want others to see you as you as someone who has confidence and vitality, not someone who is preoccupied with being self-conscious about your smile.
If you don't feel confident about your appearance, though, others may see you as unfriendly or standoffish, and that's certainly not the impression you want to give! Fortunately, at Singh Smile Care, we are pleased to offer a wide range of cosmetic dental options like Lumineers to help you feel great about the way you look again.
What Are Lumineers?
Lumineers are ultra-thin shells of translucent ceramic material that mimic the beauty and luster of natural dental enamel. Porcelain veneers are much thicker than Lumineers and require removal of some natural tooth structure to fit correctly.
Lumineers are so thin that little or no preparation of your natural teeth is needed, so you don't have to worry about injections. If you don't want to commit to a lifetime of porcelain veneers, this is the perfect option for you because the process is completely reversible.
What Problems Do Lumineers correct?
The ceramic material used for Lumineers has the appearance of natural enamel and reflects light for that special sparkle. This procedure is just as effective as porcelain veneers for concealing the common imperfections that impact your smile.
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Teeth that appear too long or too short
- Crooked or turned teeth
- Teeth that are cracked, chipped or significantly discolored
- Oddly shaped or poorly proportioned teeth
- Wide gaps and spaces between teeth
The process of placing Lumineers is similar to that used for porcelain veneers and can usually be completed in about two to three weeks. Additionally, Lumineers resist staining and are easy to maintain. They are durable enough to withstand biting force for many years. With proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits, these restorations can last as long as 20 years.
