Lumineers are a special type of dental veneer that requires no preparation or adjustment of the natural tooth enamel because it is made of ultra-thin Cerinate porcelain. Our Los Angeles Lumineers expert can apply these veneers, which are often about as thick as a contact lens, directly over your own teeth for a look that is healthy, beautiful and durable.
If your teeth are chipped, worn, small, misshapen, uneven, crooked or discolored, you may be a candidate for Lumineers. Our expert in Lumineers in Los Angeles can help you determine your candidacy at a comprehensive evaluation that identifies your concerns and goals. We take a holistic approach to dentistry and recommend conservative treatment alternatives whenever possible to retain the full strength, function and health of your smile.
Our Los Angeles Lumineers expert can often apply Lumineers in just two to three dental visits. We may take pictures, dental X-rays, dental impressions and other records as we formulate a treatment plan. These images and records will then be sent to the Lumineers lab, which will create your new smile. When your new veneers are ready, you will return to our office for your new smile. Because the Lumineers are bonded over your own teeth, there is no need for painful shots or uncomfortable drilling.
Los Angeles Lumineers
Taking care of your new Lumineers requires good attention to dental hygiene. Our expert in Lumineers in Los Angeles recommends twice-daily brushing and daily flossing. You will need to avoid foods that are extremely sticky or hard since they can damage the porcelain of the Lumineers. If you have bruxism, you may need to wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth and your Lumineers.
Our holistic dentist in Los Angeles may recommend other treatments or procedures that can improve the health of your smile and your general health. Because your smile is intimately connected with your whole body’s health, it is important that you visit us regularly for checkups and preventive care that not only give you a great smile, but also give you a reason to smile.
