So, you have decided to improve the appearance of your smile. That’s great! What happens now?

· What are Lumineers anyway?
· How do they work? Are these permanent restorations? What can they do?
· What is it like to undergo treatment? And how long is it going to take?
Lumineers are aesthetic restorations that are crafted from porcelain. These restorations are very thin, so they are actually placed over the patient’s natural dental enamel. Lumineers resurface and transform the visible surfaces of a patient’s teeth.
Every Lumineer is created to fit the patient’s exact smile. Once the Lumineer is sized, shaped, and shaded appropriately, our dental team uses a dental adhesive to permanently attach the Lumineer to the patient’s visible enamel surfaces.
The treatment process for Lumineer placement is very simple and straightforward. Because Lumineers are so thin, our dental team does not need to shave away very much dental material in order to make the Lumineers fit comfortably. This treatment is comfortable and fast—it generally only takes two or three appointments to complete Lumineer treatment from start to finish.
Patients of many ages are choosing to use porcelain Lumineers because they want the durable, customized results that Lumineers provide. If there are specific things that you would like to change about your smile, our Orland Park Lumineer dentists can help you decide whether Lumineers can help you reach your goals.
So call our helpful dental team if you would like more information about your cosmetic dentistry options, or if you would like to schedule a personalized consultation. We look forward to meeting with you!
