Sindledecker Dentistry offers a Lumineers procedure as an alternative to traditional porcelain veneers. Lumineers are a type of dental veneers that are specifically designed to be applied individually over each tooth. The purpose of this design is to preserve as much of the original tooth structure as possible during the application process. Lumineers are a type of dental veneers that are designed to be extremely thin, like contact lenses. They offer a thinner alternative compared to traditional veneers, which are typically thicker in nature.
Lumineers are known for their ultra-thin design, which allows for minimal tooth reduction during the application process. Traditional porcelain veneers require the removal of a portion of the enamel to accommodate the veneers.
Benefits of Lumineers with Sindledecker Dentistry include:
- Bite shape improvement
- Even, straight smile
- Bright smile matching actual teeth
- Prevention of further damage to the teeth
This procedure is minimally invasive and painless. Lumineers are designed to effectively conceal cosmetic issues like gaps, stains, cracks, and other concerns, resulting in a natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Like veneers, an adhesive is applied to connect to each tooth individually, providing a strong connection that can withstand normal eating and chewing function. Once all your Lumineers are placed, you will be ready to resume normal activity.
Lumineers recovery is again similar to veneers. To keep them functioning properly, you will need to brush and floss the same as natural teeth.
It is recommended to avoid eating for a few hours after getting Lumineers placed. The initial period following the placement of veneers is crucial as it allows them to properly stabilize. After the stabilization period, it is crucial to adjust your eating habits when you resume your regular routine.
Lumineers are susceptible to damage or discoloration from hard and chewy foods, as well as red, staining food and beverages such as red wine, dark fruits, etc. Acidic food can also be an issue with the adhesive properties of your Lumineers and should be avoided.
