Modern dentistry offers numerous solutions not only to ailments such as tooth decay and gum disease, but also gives patients the chance to look their best by harnessing the skills of dentists who administer cosmetic dentistry procedures. Cosmetic dentistry is concerned with making patients look terrific by having a perfect smile. One increasingly popular cosmetic dentistry procedure is having Lumineers fitted. Read on to find out more.
Lumineers are a type of porcelain dental veneer, designed especially to cover up unsightly looking teeth and improve the look of your mouth. They are ideal in cases where patients have chipped, cracked or even heavily stained teeth. By fitting a thin layer of cerinate porcelain over the front of the tooth it will look a whole lot better but discreetly so.
Many other types of veneer require the dentist to remove a little of the existing tooth so that it can be accommodated successfully in the mouth. Lumineers almost never require this and it explains why they are sometime popularly known as ‘contact lenses for all your teeth’; they are that thin. Lumineers will not stain either so that if you have covered up a stained tooth you need not worry about the thing that is covering it becoming stained too.
Ask your Kingston-Upon-Thames dentist if they can carry out the Lumineer treatment to cover up your undesirable looking teeth. The procedure is quick and simple thanks to digital technology in the surgery and you will be able to walk away with a perfect looking smile. Once in place, Lumineers are so durable that you will be able to treat them just like you would the rest of the teeth and, apart from how great your smile looks, you will forget that you even have Lumineers in your mouth!
