Lumineers continue to grow in popularity, though many people still don’t know about the benefits they have to offer. They are a cosmetic dental solution to a variety of problems. Lumineers are remarkably thin, comparable to a contact lens. They adhere directly to the tooth, go on without any pain, and add confidence to your smile. To help you know if Lumineers are right for you, here are four reasons to ask your Baton Rouge dentist about Lumineers.
Lumineers Can Change The Color Of The Tooth
It is seemingly inevitable that teeth get stained or become discolored over the years. Try as we might to fight it, over time, many people begin to lose that battle. Lumineers are a great way to even the playing field when it comes to getting your teeth whiter.
Lumineers Can Change The Size Or Shape Of The Tooth
If you have a misaligned, chipped, or misshapen tooth, Lumineers are often the fastest, most pain-free way to correct the problem. Provided no work needs to be done to the tooth itself, Lumineers can even out and bring symmetry back to your smile.
Lumineers Can Correct Gaps Between Teeth
Of course, if the gaps between your teeth are too wide, orthodontic work may be needed. But, for minor corrections, Lumineers can help narrow the gap between the teeth. This will give you a more uniform smile.
Lumineers Are Less Invasive Than Veneers
If any work needs to be done to the tooth itself like the tooth needs grinding or changes to the tooth structure need to be made, then veneers are the best option. However, Lumineers don’t take any prepping. They are simply placed right on top of the tooth, then glued on. There are no injections or prepping. All that is needed is to take an impression, then have the Lumineers custom made for you.
The process for Lumineers takes only two visits. One for the impression and one to put them on. After that, you are done and can enjoy them with no restrictions on what you can eat or drink. If you properly take care of them, Lumineers can last up to twenty years. If you think Lumineers are the right choice for you, give The Smile Spa of Baton Rouge a call to set up an appointment.
