Dental technology has come a long way since its beginnings and, these days, there’s absolutely no need for you to settle for anything less than a great set of teeth. If yours are discolored, chipped, misshapen, or slightly gapped, Lumineers® may be the answer for you.
Lumineers is a brand of dental veneers that is placed over your teeth to correct dental imperfections such as chips, stains, minor misalignments and gaps. At the office of Perry L. Jeffries, DDS and Associates, PA, our highly-skilled staff will determine if you are candidate for Lumineers and will work with you to create a great looking smile.
Lumineers are unique in that they are ultra-thin and highly translucent, allowing them to replicate the light reflecting properties and natural appearance of tooth enamel. While traditional veneers are also thin facings, they often require some filing down and preparation of the underlying tooth structure. Lumineers are so thin that little to no tooth reduction is necessary. The overall effect is a great looking set of teeth that can last with proper care for over 20 years.
The overall process typically takes two visits, the first to create a mold of your teeth, design your veneers, and determine the shade of what that’s best for you. The second visit involves painlessly applying the veneers, without the need for shots or drilling of sensitive tooth structure. Once the procedure is completed, there is no post placement discomfort or sensitivity, which means Lumineers will look natural and feel comfortable from the moment they are placed.
