Dental-Lumineers at Von Boeckmann, DDS in Missouri City, TX
Lumineers (trademark)are porcelain veneers made with patented Cerinate (trademark)porcelain technology. They are the painless alternative to traditional veneers and crowns. They can permanently change the color of your teeth and align them in two dental visits. Lumineers are the permanent cosmetic solution for stained ,chipped , discolored and maligned teeth.In most cases the procedure can be done with no shots and little or no preparation of the tooth. They can be fabricated to be contact lens thin. This protects and prevents the unnecessary removal of sensitive tooth structure. Lumineers can even be placed over existing crown or bridgework without having to replace them.
On your first consultation appointment for lumineers your dentist will take x-rays of your teeth and examine your teeth for possible cavites and gum disease. A routine cleaning is recommended prior to lumineer placement and every 6 months thereafter. Optimal gingival health is vital for any restorative success. Your dentist may also recommend whitening your teeth prior to lumineer placement so that your other teeth can blend with the lumineers.
On your second appointment photographs are taken to communicate with the cerinate lab to get the best cosmetic outcome. The photographs also help you to see the dramatic change in your smile once the lumineers are placed. Then an impression or mold of your teeth is taken and along with the photographs sent to the Cerinate lab for the fabrication of the revolutionary Lumineers. It usually takes 10 working days for the Lumineers to be fabricated.
On your final appointment your dentist bonds the Lumineers with a special bond onto your teeth. This appointment probably takes 30 minutes and is the longest appointment in the whole procedure.
In just 2-3 visits to your LUMINEERS dentist, you can have a custom-made smile that is clinically proven to last over 20 years – and it is completely reversible since your natural tooth structure is still intact! Call our office to get your perfect smile today!
