Easy Family Dental Lumineers ® in Encino, CA
Lumineers ® are a specific type of veneers that are designed to improve the cosmetic appearance of teeth while providing protection for the underlying natural enamel. Here at Easy Family Dental, we offer the specialized service of working with Lumineers to have manufactured personalized veneers designed precisely for your teeth. Once installed, the veneers help make the teeth whiter, brighter, and more uniform than ever before.
The Purpose of Veneers
Dental veneers have been around for decades and were designed to craft a person’s smile to be uniform and beautiful. No one is born with naturally perfect teeth, and sometimes an individual would like to shape the entire smile without individual shaping and bonding each tooth. In these situations, a cosmetic dentist will install veneers.
A veneer is a thin shell typically made of porcelain or a synthetic material. This shell is applied directly to the teeth and can last for decades without breaking or needing to be replaced. The veneers can change the color of the teeth, hide cracks and jagged edges, and overall protect the underlying teeth from damage and decay.
Why Use Lumineers
The process of installing Lumineers is simpler and less invasive than the procedure required for traditional veneers. Instead of needing to drill or reshape the underlying teeth, dentists can instead apply Lumineers in two simple visits. There is no scraping or shaving of the enamel. Dentists will instead measure and x-ray your teeth, make molds, and then send all of the information to the Lumineers manufacturer so they can create customized veneers that perfectly fit your teeth.
At your next visit, the Lumineers will be installed tooth by tooth. The process is minimally invasive and doesn’t require the use of temporaries. They can also be reshaped as needed if the fit is not exact or if you are not happy with the overall appearance.
