There is a porcelain dental veneer on the market which has been affectionately dubbed the ‘contact lens for teeth’. This is because Lumineers are so thin. Part of the problem with dental veneers in the past was that often a significant portion of the existing tooth had to be removed in order to fit the veneer on. This meant extra time at the surgery and a procedure that not every one found entirely pleasant. With Lumineers, you won’t have to go through this.
People choose to wear dental veneers for aesthetic reasons. Teeth which are cracked or chipped but still functional might spoil the effect of your smile and you will probably wish to cover it up with something that looks more pleasant and completes your smile. Lumineers achieve this and give patients brilliant looking smiles. The boost in self confidence that patients feel is incredible. Of course the way you behave is more important than how you look but a healthy looking sparkle to all of your teeth can really make you feel better about yourself.
Lumineer veneers tend to last longer than most other porcelain dental veneers too. It is unlikely that you will need to replace a Lumineer for twenty years whereas some other dental veneers can have a lifespan as short as just three years. Once fitted you won’t even have to think about it because it will be there for such a long time.
Because they are made from special, patented material, Lumineers are only available the labs in the United States and your Central London dentist must be registered with them in order to carry out the procedure. Ask your dentist next time you see them about Lumineers and cover up that unsightly cracked, chipped or stained tooth.
