How Do Lumineers® Work?

One of the most exciting dental innovations in recent years is the ability to achieve a beautiful smile regardless of imperfections. Lumineers® are among the more highly sought after cosmetic treatments available today, and for good reason. If you’re interested a smile makeover without committing to long-term dentition changes Lumineers® might be the best choice for you.

Why Lumineers®? 

If your teeth are stained, discolored, misshapen, have an unwanted gap between teeth or otherwise just not what you want them to look like, Lumineers® can change your smile in an average of two weeks time.

Dr. Lawrence Bauman is experienced in placing Lumineers®, and can determine whether or not you’re a good candidate for this dental technology. Unlike other types of cosmetic solutions,  Lumineers® also called no-prep veneers are non-invasive, meaning no tooth enamel is lost during the procedure.

How are Lumineers® Placed? 

Patients are amazed at the dramatic results Lumineers® can provide in such a short time. Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers® are extremely thin, which means your natural teeth don’t have to be filed or shaped to make room. During your first visit, Dr. Bauman will talk to you about your dental issues and the goals you have for your smile. Impressions of your teeth will be taken, then sent to a Certified Lumineers® Laboratory along with your dental records. The lab will make your customized Lumineers® based on your impressions and dental information.

During the second office visit, your new Lumineers® will be “tried on” to ensure they fit perfectly. Then, your natural teeth will be gently etched to facilitate secure placement. Finally, the Lumineers® will be placed on top of your natural teeth, one at a time. Ultra-thin type of veneer is designed to last and won’t affect your bite or speech. Your new smile will look and feel natural — no one will know you have veneers unless you tell them.
