What are Lumineers®?

Lumineers

If you’re going in for a basic dental cleaning, you usually know what you’re in for – a little scraping, flossing, polishing, rinsing and maybe an X-ray before the dentist has you on your way. However, going in for a more intensive procedure may have you wondering what’s in store, particularly if your care provider is talking about Lumineers®.

However, there’s no need to fret about enduring a long, painful procedure when heading in for Lumineers®. Lumineers® are relatively new and function much like metal braces, though with a far more subtle aesthetic. These devices are typically made from a special kind of porcelain and fit over your teeth as a clear, custom-made shell. Many people wear them to correct crooked teeth, while others use them to brighten their smiles.

Even better, there’s no need to grind down or shave off parts of your teeth with Lumineers® as with traditional veneers. Your dentist can create a unique mold that fits perfectly into your mouth with a convenient procedure.

Before opting for Lumineers®, just make sure to speak with your insurance company to understand the costs of this procedure and how much you’ll be responsible for covering.
