Why Choose Lumineers Over Veneers
- Posted on: Apr 15 2018
Having a perfect smile doesn’t come naturally to most people— if any at all. Not only does a perfect smile require some whitening and straightening, but it may also require the help of some dental veneers. One of the main reasons why our patients at Dr. Paul Peterson’s office like dental veneers is because they can fix dental imperfections like misaligned, yellow, small, or chipped teeth without having to undergo traditional methods. And even though traditional dental veneers are popular, Dr. Paul Peterson has a new type of veneer that may be worth considering: Lumineers.
What Are Lumineers?
Lumineers are a brand of porcelain dental veneers that are thinner than traditional veneers which makes them a little easier to bond to the teeth. Some of the unique benefits of Lumineers are that:
- Temporary veneers aren’t required while you wait for your Lumineers to be made in the dental lab
- Little drilling is required to your natural teeth
- No tooth structure is removed during the procedure which means that the procedure may be reversible.
One thing to note about Lumineers is that they aren’t suitable for everyone. In fact, they may be good for some people but not good for others. During your initial consultation with Dr. Paul Peterson, we will go over all of your dental procedure options to help you determine what one is ideal for you and your specific dental needs. If you are a suitable candidate for Lumineers, we will go over the next steps with you and schedule your next appointment so that you can get started on a path toward a straighter smile.
