Lumineer’s can solve many problems in dentistry, by a Weybridge dentist
Lumineer’s are made from a new formula that is so hard wearing, it only needs to be a fraction of the thickness of the conventional Porcelain Veneer, says a Weybridge dentist. The method of making it and fitting it is much the same, but it is much quicker to make and everyone is still custom made just for you. You need to have a consultation to see if you qualify for a Lumineer, but don`t worry not many are refused them. The dentist takes digital photos and digital X-rays of the tooth that is going to take the veneer. This information is scanned into a computer and an image is created of the finished product. A dental technician then makes the Lumineer and sends it to the dentist, as it is so thin it usually only needs a light scrape of the tooth to make a good adhesion. The tooth and smile make over is quickly finished, and you can be out the door in around 15-20 minutes. The Lumineer can be used just like the tooth it is covering, it is cleaned by brushing, flossing and mouth washes. Tests have given an indication that these veneers will last up to 20 years if taken care of properly. The cost is a lot less than conventional veneers as the work involved is more than halved, it fixes all the usual problems from discolouration, cracks, chips and misaligned teeth. See your dentist first though to see if you qualify for one, they are a perfect solution to an age old problem of ugly teeth, and the effect is instant.
