Prescott Dental Arts offers Lumineers for Prescott, Arizona
Lumineers® are an alternative to porcelain veneers. They are ultrathin (approximately 0.2 mm) and highly translucent, which allows them to replicate the natural appearance of tooth enamel. Traditional veneers are much thicker, requiring the reshaping of your original tooth structure. Lumineers are so thin that little to no tooth reduction. Additionally, the durability of Lumineers allows them to resist wear and remain resilient to last over 20 years.
Lumineers® are a minimally invasive procedure, often require no shots, and little or no drilling of sensitive tooth structure. And they’re reversible, so you have nothing to lose and a beautiful smile to gain.
The procedure typically requires only two visits to your dentist. During your first visit a precision mold will be taken. You and your dentist will choose the right shade for your Lumineers. On your second visit, your custom designed Lumineers are checked for fit and shade. Then, they’re painlessly attached, which takes about one hour.
Is the procedure painful?
The procedure is a completely pain-free way to reshape and permanently whiten your teeth. Because they are ultrathin, in most cases you will get a perfect fit without shots or grinding down of the original tooth structure. Once the procedure is completed, there is no post placement discomfort or sensitivity, which means your Lumineers will look natural and feel comfortable from the moment they are placed.
Are Lumineers a substitute for Orthodontics?
In many cases, Lumineers can be a substitute for braces. Through a free consultation, your dentist at Prescott Dental Arts can help you determine whether orthodontics is necessary. If you do not have a severe alignment problem, Lumineers will reshape your teeth, making them look straighter and more uniform, as well as whiter, something you don’t get with braces.
How long will Lumineers last?
Clinical testing has proven that Lumineers can last over 20 years. Lumineers also offer a limited lifetime warranty that allows for a replacement of each unit at no charge. Some restrictions apply.
