Improvements in how the smile appears can be done in various ways, depending on the specific concern that needs to be addressed. Dental veneers are used to improve dental problems or cosmetic dentistry issues such as decayed teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, crooked/improperly aligned teeth, teeth discolourations, and unsightly gaps between the teeth. The veneers provide the desired results by improving the appearance of the affected tooth (or teeth), bringing back smiles that can proudly be flashed anytime.
What are Lumineers?
Lumineers are dental veneers that are ultra-thin and customised according to the patient’s unique needs and specifications. Just like traditional dental veneers, the Lumineers are used to cover and improve the appearance of teeth that have been discoloured, damaged, decayed, have unsightly gaps, or are crooked. However, unlike traditional dental veneers, Lumineers can be attached without the need for shots or injections, and without the need to use a dental drill on sensitive teeth structure – both of which can cause dental anxiety in some patients. Lumineers make it possible for cosmetic dentistry improvements to be done without pain and discomfort for the patient.
Benefits of Lumineers for Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Aside from the significant improvements in the appearance of one’s smile, here are more of the benefits of using Lumineers for cosmetic dentistry treatments:
No Need for Shots – The Lumineers treatment can be completed without the need for injections or shots. This can be very beneficial especially to those who feel anxious about the idea of getting shots prior to a dental treatment.
Sensitive Teeth Structure will not be drilled – Lumineers are attached without the need to use the dental drill on sensitive teeth structure, which can be uncomfortable and painful for the patient. Lumineers are so thin that they can be applied on top of the affected teeth with no need to drill, or remove existing tooth structure.
Only Two Dental Visits are needed – The full benefits of Lumineers can be enjoyed after just two visits to the dentist – compared to numerous dental appointments that may be involved with traditional dental veneers.
