Our teeth may be strong, but they can suffer a lot of damage. Cavities, infections, chips, breaks, cracks, crookedness, and stains are all things that can easily happen to these strong bones. Sometimes more than one of these can occur at once. Fortunately, our Los Angeles cosmetic dentist offers a way for you to not have to worry about these problems and for your teeth to look great for years to come.
Lumineers are a type of veneer, which are placed on the teeth to cover unsightly flaws and protect them from any further damage. But while typical veneers require a layer of enamel to be removed from the teeth, Lumineers are able to be placed with little to no prep. This is because they are manufactured differently, and are about the thickness of a contact lens. This means that they do not make your teeth look larger, and do not require the removal of enamel to look normal. Because the structure of the tooth is not altered, our expert in Lumineers in Los Angeles can remove them if needed.
Good candidates for Lumineers are those who have strong enough teeth, with enough remaining surface area for the covering to bond to.
