Lumineers® are an alternative to porcelain veneers that may be better suited to address minor cosmetic dental problems. Because they are so thin, Lumineers do not require any tooth preparation, which may be preferable to some of our patients. Placed directly over your natural tooth enamel, Lumineers are entirely reversible and eliminate risks such as tooth sensitivity that may accompany some other cosmetic dental treatments.
If you live in Houston or surrounding areas of Texas and would like to learn if Lumineers are right for your smile, please contact Fantastic Smiles or call 832-862-1111 today to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced cosmetic dentists.
Candidates for Lumineers
Ideal candidates for Lumineers should have one or more minor cosmetic issues detracting from their smile. Lumineers offer a minimally invasive way to address issues including:
- Small gaps and spaces
- Crooked tooth presentation
- Irregular tooth shapes or sizes
- Minor chips or cracks
Lumineers are not the best solution for addressing staining or discoloration, nor are they ideal for larger spaces in between teeth.
Good candidates for Lumineers should be free of dental problems such as gum disease or tooth decay. If oral health issues are present, treatment will be necessary before Lumineers can be placed. Dr. Morency are both experienced cosmetic and general dentists who can provide necessary treatments to improve your candidacy for Lumineers and other aesthetic procedures.
Lumineers are a safe and effective way to address a number of common cosmetic dental issues. The best way to learn if you are a good candidate for this treatment is through a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Morency. If you are not a good candidate for Lumineers, we will happily discuss alternative treatments which may better meet your needs.
