What are Lumineers?
Adding Lumineers is a Teeth Whitening Procedure that Four Seasons Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Plymouth MN may recommend as an option for cost-effectively improving your smile. Lumineers are unique in that they are ultra-thin (approximately 0.2 mm) and highly translucent, allowing them to replicate the natural appearance of enamel. While traditional veneers are much thicker, requiring the grinding down of your original tooth structure, Lumineers are so thin that little to no tooth reduction is necessary. Additionally, the durability of Lumineers allows them to resist wear and remain resilient to last for over 20 years.
Traditional Veneers are generally thicker, and thus may require more aggressive removal of healthy tooth structure. The extensive preparation technique of normal Veneers frequently requires shots and Sedation to minimize sensitivity and pain, and possibly could involve the placement of acrylic temporaries for over a week between visits. The minimally invasive Lumineers technique typically eliminates the need for shots or temporaries, so while you wait for your custom-made Lumineers, you’ll look great and feel great. While many dentists offer Veneers, not all dentists have been trained to deliver the benefits of Lumineers such as Four Seasons Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Plymouth MN.
