Everyone wants to have a beautiful smile. But it is never worth sacrificing your oral health in order to achieve a specific aesthetic result. Luckily, our Orland Park LUMINEERS dentist can transform your smile using stunning and safe porcelain LUMINEERS. In this article we are going to be talking more about how, exactly, LUMINEERS respect the structural integrity of your smile.
LUMINEERS make your smile look better by covering any aesthetic problems with porcelain. Each LUMINEER is crafted from Cerinate porcelain, which maintains exceptional strength and durability even when it is shaped to be thin. LUMINEERS are even thinner than conventional dental veneers.
Because LUMINEERS are so thin, our dentist does not need to drastically shave away and shape your natural dental enamel before we place your LUMINEER. When a patient has a veneer placed, his or her natural tooth has to be filed down, so that the veneer will fit and not look bulky. Unfortunately, this process renders the patient’s natural tooth inefficient without a veneer attached.
Our cosmetic dentist is able to place porcelain LUMINEERS over your whole, healthy tooth. We do not need to significantly deplete the structure of your natural tooth in order to make it look perfect. This means that LUMINEERS are actually reversible (unlike traditional veneers).
The LUMINEERS process is both fast and effective—you can transform your smile in just a few dental appointments. When you come in for your consultation with our Tinley Park LUMINEERS dentist, we can give you a better idea of what your specific treatment process would entail.
Many patients are good candidates for porcelain LUMINEERS. If you want to discern whether LUMINEERS are right for you, please call our office or submit a question for our dental team through our website. We look forward to speaking with you!
