For many of us, smiling comes as natural as blinking – we don't give it a second thought, we simply smile when we are happy or when something makes us laugh. However, for some people, the thought of revealing their teeth by smiling causes them to feel embarrassed and self-conscious. Because your smile is such a personal asset, an unattractive smile can often give people a negative and unwanted impression of who you are. If you are self-conscious or uncomfortable with the appearance of your smile, contact Dentistry of Highland Village today and learn how Lumineers® can transform your smile.
Lumineers® are an alternative cosmetic dental treatment to traditional porcelain veneers. While all veneers provide a way to conceal stains, chips, discoloration, gaps, and misaligned teeth, traditional veneers need more tooth preparation than Lumineers®. Because Lumineers® are as thin as a contact lens, they do not require much tooth reduction. The application of Lumineers® requires little to no tooth reduction because they are bonded to your natural teeth and set in place with a curing light. The thinness of the materials used in Lumineers® allows dentists the unique opportunity to drastically transform a person's smile with little or no changing of the natural teeth. Because the application process of Lumineers® is far less invasive than with traditional veneers, patients with Lumineers® can enjoy their new smiles without any post-procedure discomfort or sensitivity. Patients literally come into the office with one smile and leave the office with a dramatically different one!
