Orland Park Cosmetic Dentist Reviews the Uses for Dental LUMINEERS

Written by Dr. Zaibak on Aug 4, 2014

If you don’t feel confident when you smile, it can affect your entire life and your self-esteem. If you find yourself hiding your teeth, trying not to smile widely, or covering your teeth when you speak, you should know that there are cosmetic dentistry treatments available to you that can help you reclaim a beautiful smile.

Today I’m going to be reviewing one particular cosmetic treatment, dental LUMINEERS. LUMINEERS can be used to fix one singular tooth, or to transform an entire smile. This versatile dental option has been helping patients smile confidently for years!


LUMINEERS are simply thin layers of porcelain that are applied to existing teeth in order to resurface them. LUMINEERS are made of porcelain because porcelain closely mimics the appearance of natural enamel—it bounces light similarly to enamel and thus looks really natural.

What can LUMINEERS do?

LUMINEERS are used to fix a number of cosmetic problems. If you suffer from any of these common dental problems, you may want to explore LUMINEERS!

LUMINEERS are used to:

Whiten dark enamel or teeth with persistent and hard to treat stains.

Straighten the appearance of crooked or crowded teeth.

Close small or large gaps between teeth.

Resurface teeth with existing cracks or chips.

Lengthen the appearance of short teeth.

Achieve a total smile transformation!

As you can see, LUMINEERS can correct a number of cosmetic problems. Because LUMINEERS are shaded and shaped for each individual patient, our Orland Park cosmetic dentists use them fix anywhere from one to multiple teeth—LUMINEERS look so natural that they will still blend in with your natural teeth.

If you’ve been living with a smile that you don’t love, you may benefit from dental LUMINEERS. Give our Tinley Park LUMINEERS dental office a call for more information or to schedule a consultation!
