As Lumineers have become more and more popular with cosmetic dentistry patients, our Tinley Park cosmetic dentists have been fielding questions from interested patients. Today we are going to be answering some of the questions we commonly hear, so that you can get a better idea of whether Lumineers might be able to help your each your dental goals!
Q: My smile is kind of damaged; can I still use dental Lumineers?
A: When you meet with our dental team, we’ll assess your smile to figure out if your teeth are healthy enough to support Lumineers. Minor dental damage can be covered and repaired with Lumineers. If you have more extensive damage, our dental team may need to address your oral health issues before moving on to Lumineers’ treatment.
Q: How long is it going to take to get Lumineers?
A: One of the most amazing things about cosmetic Lumineers is that treatment rarely takes more than a few dental appointments to complete. Our dental team will take an impression of your smile so that we can make Lumineers to fit your specifications. Then, we’ll fit and attach the Lumineers to complete treatment. As a patient, you will likely come in for three or so appointments over the course of a couple of weeks. Lumineers allow you to achieve a complete smile transformation in a short period of time.
Q: How do I know my Lumineers are going to look right?
A: Every Lumineer is personalized to fit the patient—the shape, size, and color of the Lumineer will blend with your natural teeth. When you are working with our dental team, we’ll help you visualize what your final smile will look like. This will give you an opportunity to make any tweaks and changes to your treatment plan!
