If you’re looking for a fast and effective way to transform the appearance of your smile, Lumineers may be right for you! Today, we’re going to be reviewing some information about Lumineers, so that you can get a better idea of whether these cosmetic restorations are right for you. Read on to learn some facts about Lumineers from our Orland Park cosmetic dentist…
Q: What are Lumineers made of?
A: Lumineers are made of Cerinate porcelain—a strong and luminous porcelain ideal for dental restorations.
Q: How long do Lumineers last once they’re placed?
A: With proper care, Lumineers can last for up to a decade before they need to be replaced. Your dentist will review the dental hygiene steps that you should take to keep your Lumineers strong and luminous.
Q: How do Lumineers stay attached to the natural teeth?
A: Lumineers are affixed to natural teeth with dental adhesive. Once this adhesive has cured, your Lumineers will be firmly affixed to your teeth, and can only be removed by a dentist.
Q: Is it hard to keep Lumineers clean?
A: No! Lumineers are designed to be effectively cleaned with many of the same dental hygiene tools you’re using on your natural teeth. It’s important that you brush your Lumineers and your natural teeth at least twice a day. Make sure to floss between your teeth and your Lumineers to keep you tooth roots and gum tissue strong. Your dentist will let you know if you should take any additional dental hygiene steps.
