Traditional porcelain veneers can be used to correct numerous aesthetic issues, including stains, cracks, chips and worn enamel. The procedure requires the removal of dental enamel, however, which can result in sensitivity for some patients, and it is not considered reversible. Although porcelain veneers are highly effective in treating many cosmetic concerns, they are not the right choice for every patient. Lumineers provide an alternative for those concerned with the drawbacks of traditional dental veneers. Our Beverly Hills Lumineers expert can help you learn if you are a candidate for Lumineers.
Lumineers, which are considered a no-prep dental veneer because they require little or no preparation of dental enamel, are made of a special type of porcelain called Cerinate porcelain. Because Cerinate porcelain is designed to be extremely strong and very thin, it can be applied directly over your teeth. Our specialist for Lumineers in Beverly Hills can often apply Lumineers without having to reshape, anesthetize or otherwise prepare your teeth. That means no pain, no discomfort and no sensitivity.
Our Beverly Hills Lumineers expert can often use Lumineers to correct many of the same issues that porcelain veneers can correct, and the procedure is similar. You will usually need more than one appointment. At the first appointment, you and our dentist will design your new smile, and dental impressions will be sent to the lab, which will create your Lumineers.
