Orland Park Cosmetic Dentist Explains How LUMINEERS and Veneers Are Customized

Written by Dr. Zaibak on Jul 1, 2014

Whenever a patient comes to our Orland Park cosmetic dentist looking for a way to improve his or her smile, our dental team takes great pains to ensure that the patient finds a perfectly suited cosmetic solution. More and more patients are turning to dental veneers and LUMINEERS, because both of these cosmetic restorations deliver customized cosmetic results. Let’s learn more about all of the different ways that our dental team can tailor your restorations to fit your smile.

Porcelain is the material used to craft both the veneer and LUMINEER. With porcelain as the foundation, our dental team can tweak each dental veneer to ensure a great fit and appearance.

The first thing that we will consider is how large your dental veneer should be. The size of your veneer or LUMINEER will:

· Coordinate with your natural teeth, so that it blends in with your existing smile

· Be customized to make your tooth look longer or wider, if necessary

After we have determined what size veneer/LUMINEER is right for you, it’s time to think about your restoration’s shape. Dental shapes vary—from square and geometric, to rounded and smooth. The shape of your dental veneer will mimic your natural dental shapes.

One of the final steps in constructing your dental veneer/LUMINEER is to shade the porcelain to match your natural dental enamel. If you want to whiten your entire smile, we will whiten your natural teeth before shading your dental veneer, to ensure that your entire smile looks uniform.

Dental veneers and LUMINEERS lend themselves to customization. Once your restorations are applied, your veneers/LUMINEERS will look and function like natural teeth!
