Lumineers are an excellent cosmetic alternative that can help you achieve that megawatt smile that you have been craving. Our El Monte Lumineers expert often recommends Lumineers for patients who are looking for a pain-free way to whiten, straighten and smooth out their smiles without making any permanent alterations to their teeth.
Made of strong Cerinate porcelain, Lumineers are incredibly thin. They are generally no thicker than a contact lens, which means that our expert in Lumineers in El Monte can apply them directly to the top of the tooth unlike traditional veneers, which require at least some enamel reduction. With Lumineers, there is no need to alter the teeth or use painful shots or uncomfortable drilling.
Our El Monte Lumineers expert can often place Lumineers in just three visits. You will not need temporary veneers as you wait for your final restorations. They can be applied without reducing teeth, which means that they are considered reversible, and they can even be applied over porcelain crowns or dental bridges for the ultimate in versatility.
Lumineers El Monte
Lumineers have several pros and cons, which our expert in Lumineers in El Monte will explain at your consultation. They are often an excellent choice for patients with mild to moderate smile flaws who want that flawless Hollywood smile. Patients with significant staining or discoloration, or patients with large teeth may need some preparation of their teeth to ensure a proper fit and the desired concealment. Patients who grind or clench their teeth may need to use an appliance at night to protect their new Lumineers from damage.
Maintaining your new smile is easy and just requires close attention to dental hygiene. You will need to brush twice a day using fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled brush. Floss at least once a day to keep the area along the gumline clean and eliminate buildup between the teeth. Routine checkups with our expert in Lumineers in El Monte will keep your dental health on track and your Lumineers looking great.
