Patients looking to improve the aesthetics of their smile now have a one-of-a-kind treatment option with porcelain Lumineers. These are essentially ultra-thin veneers that are adhered directly to your teeth. But the main benefit Lumineers have over traditional veneers is that Lumineers do not require any of your natural enamel to be removed. This makes Lumineers a reversible procedure, so if you decide you want your old smile back, they can be taken off.
Our expert in porcelain Lumineers in Los Angeles often recommends Lumineers to patients who have chips, cracks, gaps, or stains in their smile. Lumineers look completely natural, and they can be customized to blend in perfectly with the rest of your teeth. Lumineers often take two dental appointments to place, but since your teeth are not being altered, you do not have to wear temporaries in between appointments.
The appointments to get your Lumineers placed are fairly straightforward. Your dentist will take a mold of your teeth during the first session so that your Lumineers can be built in a lab. During the second appointment, your Lumineers will be placed. Anesthetics are generally not needed because your teeth are not being altered.
