Orland Park Dentist Helps Patients Figure Out Whether LUMINEERS Are Right For Them

Written by Dr. Zaibak on Nov 29, 2016

In the world of cosmetic dentistry, there are many different treatments that can help you transform your smile quickly and effectively. One increasingly popular cosmetic treatment among patients of many ages is LUMINEERS’ treatment. In this short article our Orland Park LUMINEER dentists are talking about some of the key things to consider when evaluating LUMINEERS.

What are your aesthetic goals?

Think about the things that you’d like to change about your smile. Do you want straighter teeth? A whiter smile? To cover unsightly damage? LUMINEERS are versatile, and are thus used to helps patients achieve a wide variety of aesthetic goals. Consider LUMINEERS if you want to:

· Whiten your smile

· Close gaps between teeth

· Make disproportionately short teeth appear longer

· Resurface damaged or irregularly textured dental enamel

· Straighten the appearance of misaligned teeth

· Give your smile a more balanced overall appearance

What is your ideal timeline?

Certain aesthetic treatments, like dental bonding, deliver full results in just one dental appointment. LUMINEERS take slightly longer to apply—our team is generally able to complete treatment in just two to three dental appointments.

LUMINEERS can be a great alternative to lengthier cosmetic options like orthodontic treatment. If you are trying to transform your smile in time for a special event, talk to your dentist about whether LUMINEERS will work for you.

What is the current state of your smile?
LUMINEERS are used to achieve a wide variety of aesthetic goals, but your underlying tooth structure does need to be pretty healthy in order to support the restoration. If you’re struggling with existing oral health problems, our team may need to complete some restorative treatments before we can move forward with LUMINEERS.
