There are numerous brands of veneers available from cosmetic dental practices, but there are only a select few that offer both an outstanding transformation and long-lasting results.
What is different about Lumineers?
Lumineers are incredibly thin veneers, often referred to as the ‘contact lenses’ of the veneer world. However, these veneers are not only small they are incredibly strong, using the finest materials and the most advanced techniques to create a restoration that looks exactly like a natural tooth that can last 20 years or more.
Lumineers also require very little in the way of tooth restoration, meaning the natural tooth structure underneath will be maintained. Usually when fitting a veneer a large portion of the tooth must be shaved away, which can create a difficult situation if you want to remove your veneers or change them. With Lumineers this isn’t a problem and the treatment is completely reversible.
What can Lumineers treat?
Lumineers are an almost instant treatment for a number of cosmetic problems including:
- Gaps between teeth
- Stained teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Crooked teeth
How are Lumineers fitted?
Lumineers only require two visits:
1) You are examined by a dentist who will tell you if you are suitable for Lumineers. You will then have impressions taken of your teeth and will decide your ideal tooth shade. This information will then be sent to the specialist dental lab, who will create you new teeth.
2) Your Lumineers are created and you return to the practice and have your Lumineers fitted.
Lumineers are only available from a small number of UK practices who are registered with the Cerinate Smile Design Studio. Liverpool Implant and Aesthetic Dental Spa are one such UK practice, able to provide this service for all their patients who are suitable for Lumineers.
