The dentists at Southfield Family Dental are proud to have been recently featured in Hour magazine as the top cosmetic dentists in metropolitan Detroit, and Dr. Levi and Dr. Oleg have trained with some of the leading specialists in the field. If you are considering revitalizing your smile with Lumineers, review these guidelines to find out if this new technology in ultra-thin veneers might be right for you.
Am I a Good Candidate for Lumineers?
Do you have stained, chipped, decaying, or crooked teeth? Your dentist may recommend thin, custom-made porcelain shells called veneers to cover the front of your teeth and give you a beautiful new smile. Lumineers are unique because they are much thinner than traditional veneers, so your dentist has to remove little to no enamel before placing them.
Is the Procedure Painful?
Many people fear painful dental procedures. Fortunately, the Lumineers procedure is a completely pain-free way to reshape and permanently whiten your teeth. During your first visit, your cosmetic dentist will make a precise mold of your teeth. On your second visit, Lumineers are painlessly applied without any shots or drilling.
Can Lumineers Replace Braces?
If you want to avoid unsightly and uncomfortable braces, your cosmetic dentist may recommend Lumineers to reshape your teeth, making them appear straighter and more uniform. Unlike braces, Lumineers are completely durable and allow you to chew gum and eat your favorite sticky foods with confidence.
How Long Will Lumineers Last?
Lumineers have been proven to keep your smile looking bright, white, and healthy for more than 20 years. If you decide you want your Lumineers removed, the process is completely reversible because there is no grinding down of the tooth structure. Thousands of dentists around the country trust Lumineers to keep their patients’ gums healthy and their teeth intact and strong.
