What Are Veneers?

Veneers are thin wafer-like shells which are attached to your tooth’s surface to fix or hide issues like cracking and chipping. They can also be used for restoring the white appearance of your smile, as well as closing any gaps between them.

Traditional Veneers Explained

In a typical set-up, a minimum of a millimeter of the enamel of the tooth is going to need to be removed in order for the veneers to be accommodated. There are a number of other steps as well. This includes getting an impression, followed by drilling, and then etching the surface of the tooth to make sure that the veneers are right in terms of shape and size. 

How Are Lumineers Different

Because of the potentially long process that is involved when it comes to traditional veneers, most patients opt for Lumineers. These are no-prep veneers. This means intensive preparation, such as altering the natural tooth, is not going to be required for these. They are sometimes referred to as “reversible” veneers because they can be removed and modified safely without there being much change to the structure of the teeth.

Who Are Lumineers Suitable For?

There are a number of different people that would benefit from Lumineers. This incldes the following:

  • People who wish to whiten their smile – If you do not want to go through teeth whitening procedures yet you have staining or discoloration of your teeth, you might consider Lumineers. 
  • People who want to fix crooked teeth – These veneers are suitable for people who do not want to wear braces, yet they do want to straighten the appearance of their teeth.
  • People who want to close the gap between teeth – You can have Lumineers attached in order to minimize a visible gap between two teeth.
  • People who have a cracked or chipped tooth – Your tooth is one of the strongest parts of your body. However, there are cases when people experienced a crack or chip. This could be because of an infection or illness. It could also be because of trauma or an accident. Either way, you can restore your teeth to their original appearance with veneers. 
  • You don’t want to go through an intensive dental process – Earlier, we discussed the process involved when it comes to traditional veneers; there is going to be less preparation to the surface of the natural tooth with Lumineers.
