Smile rejuvenation is something we are asked about daily. In fact, cosmetic dental procedures have become increasingly common. This is because more and more people are coming to realize the benefits of having a beautiful smile. At Rush Creek Dentistry, we believe that everyone in the Arlington area should have access to affordable and effective solutions to improve the appearance of the smile. We have seen firsthand the increase in confidence and self-esteem that comes with a transformed smile.
Veneers and Lumineers are both versatile porcelain restorations that can completely alter the look of your smile. They are both adhered with dental bonding to the front of teeth and can disguise a vast majority of imperfections including permanent stains, chips, cracks, gaps, and differing lengths.
Lumineers differ from traditional porcelain veneers in that they are about half the thickness. They are also considered a more conservative cosmetic procedure. Lumineers can usually be placed without removing any tooth enamel (which is required with veneers).
Other advantages of Lumineers include:
- Placed in a single appointment – this means you can avoid temporary replacements and multiple appointments.
- Reversible – Because no enamel is removed, Lumineers are considered reversible.
- No anesthetic required – This is because there is no preparation required.
Like veneers, your new Lumineers will be made to fit in seamlessly with the rest of your smile. If you are just receiving one, to cover a damaged tooth, it will be matched to blend in with neighboring teeth. If you are opting for Lumineers to makeover your entire smile, you can work with the dentist to choose the optimal shade.
