Cover imperfections with Lumineers from Los Banos, CA, area dentist

Do you want to fix smile imperfections? Are the teeth in the front of your smile affected by staining, breakage, or other problems? While composite resin dental bonding is a popular choice for disguising these issues, many patients can also ask about another solution known as Lumineers. Lumineers are a distinct type of veneer that you can reverse. 

What are Lumineers?

Lumineers are a type of veneer that is extremely thin. These are custom-made and bonded onto the front of the tooth without adding bulk and requiring the removal of healthy enamel. Patients can later decide to have them removed without dealing with the damage caused by placement on the teeth underneath.

What sets Lumineers apart from porcelain veneers?

With Lumineers, the process can be reversed as there is no removal of natural tooth enamel to place the restorations. That makes it a fast and easy way to enhance the smile, with different treatments in the future.

What are the advantages of Lumineers?

In addition to keeping natural tooth enamel in place, Lumineers are also reversible. Patients who change their minds can have them removed and consider alternative solutions. Additionally, because they are custom-made for each patient, they look entirely natural. The porcelain used for Lumineers mimics natural tooth enamel for seamless smile integration. They are also comparable in the cost of traditional veneers and other restorative treatments available with Dr. Benjamin J. Seaton and his team at Artistry in Smiles of Los Banos, CA.

What are other alternatives available to patients?

Lumineers aren’t the only option for concealing imperfections. Some of the other treatments that patients can ask about and consider include:

  • Traditional porcelain veneers
  • Composite resin bonding
  • Orthodontic treatment

Deciding the one right for you starts with a consultation appointment and initial evaluation at our practice.
