Lumineers for a beautiful, natural smile in Middletown, NJ
Like traditional veneers, Lumineers are designed to give you a beautiful, natural smile. However, unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers do not require any shots, drilling, or pain. And, most importantly, because no enamel is removed from the teeth Lumineers are reversible! Lumineers are custom-made like traditional porcelain veneers to fit each individual’s mouth. However, Lumineers are ultra-thin and highly translucent. This translucence allows them to replicate the natural appearance of enamel. They are also very durable and can last up to 20 years.The procedure takes only two office visits and approximately one hour to place the Lumineers on the teeth. There is no pain involved in the procedure as the Lumineers are so thin that little to no enamel will need to be removed, completely eliminating the need for needles and local anesthesia. After the procedure, there will be no sensitivity or soreness.
Am I a Candidate for Lumineers?
You will need to see our experienced dental team to determine if you are a good candidate for Lumineers. Those who have very dark stains or discoloration will not be good candidates, as the dark color may show through the ultra-thin layer of Lumineers. Also, those with a very “tight bite” or who grind or clench their teeth are not good candidates. This is because the constant grinding or clenching may fracture the edges of the Lumineers. Those who do not qualify for Lumineers may be good candidates for porcelain veneers and should talk to Dr. Ruda or Dr. DeAngelis about their options.
