Achieving a stunning smile has never been quicker or easier. If you have imperfections in your smile and you want a smile makeover, Lumineers from Smile Design Studios in Missouri City may be just what you need. You can hide discolorations, small gaps and even certain misalignment issues without extensive dental treatments. Your new smile can be put in place in one office visit without the dental preparation needed for dental veneers.
Benefits of Lumineers
Most people have heard of dental veneers for smile makeovers. While Lumineers are similar, they offer some benefits over veneers. At Smile Design Studios, we offer both Lumineers and porcelain veneers for our patients. Some of the benefits and differences of these cosmetic dental options include:
- Veneers and Lumineers can cover chips, cracks, unevenly shaped teeth and minor spacing issues.
- Veneers are designed to look and reflect light, like natural teeth and are more stain-resistant.
- Lumineers can be placed with little to no prep work.
- Since our office offers both traditional veneers and Lumineers, we’ll be able to find the option that works well with your needs, budget and schedule.
Traditional veneers are generally thicker, and thus require more aggressive and irreversible removal of healthy tooth structure. The extensive preparation technique frequently requires shots and anesthesia to minimize sensitivity and pain. The process typically involves the placement of acrylic temporaries for over two weeks 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 signature benefits of Lumineers. Here at Smile Design Studios, we offer this as a smile makeover option.
