While traditional veneers offer many benefits to patients, oftentimes the invasiveness and permanence of a veneer placement can be worrisome for patients. In particular, those with sensitive teeth may worry about the permanent enamel removal that accompanies traditional veneers. And while this is typically not a problem, for some, a less-invasive treatment may be more suitable for their smile needs. At Bowen Legacy Dental, we are pleased to offer our patients an incredible, non-invasive veneer option called Lumineers®—a fully reversible procedure that does not require tooth reduction, drilling, or temporaries!
Experience the Lumineers difference
Lumineers have taken the cosmetic dental world by storm since they were first introduced, and now they are the #1 patient-requested veneer system in the world! What makes them so exceptional is their extreme thinness, which allows for an easy application—without requiring enamel removal or preparation involving shots, anesthetics, or temporaries. In fact, Lumineers porcelain veneers are as thin as contact lenses! Since they can be placed without trauma to the teeth, patients have the option of reversing their veneer procedure if they choose to do so later. Proven to last up to 20 years, Lumineers are carefully color- matched to your smile and easily disguised among your natural teeth. Despite their extreme thinness, these veneers are both durable and able to mask dark tetracycline- stained or yellowed teeth completely, offering all the benefits of traditional veneers without the permanence or intensity of the procedure.
Though polishing and some re-contouring may be necessary after getting your Lumineers placed, these veneers are painless and noninvasive, making them a wonderful option to cover discoloration, small teeth, gaps, or minor orthodontic issues. And, with the simple bonding process, the Lumineers placement process only takes two appointments to complete—one for creating your custom veneers and the other for placing them.
If you are interested in refreshing your smile with Lumineers, please call us today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Bowen or Dr. Gehlert. By speaking with your dentist, you can determine if you are a good candidate for Lumineers and finally get the smile you deserve!
