There can be significant effects on your life if you are unsatisfied with the appearance of your smile. Some people have been known to have low self-esteem because of their smiles.
With the ultra-thin option of Lumineers®, our Gardena dentist can provide a solution to noticeably improve the look of the smile, evening out spaces and covering imperfections.
It is our mission to aid patients and give them the opportunity to renew their smile, and give back a sense of self-pride. At South Bay Dentistry & Orthodontics, we offer this minimal preparation option to help replenish the brilliance of our patients’ dentition.
A Resilient and Beautiful Way to Brighten Your Smile
Lumineers® are made from a durable porcelain material called Cerinate® that have the same sheen as your natural teeth.
Lumineers® are a revolutionary new way to fix your teeth. Just as thin as contact lenses, they can be applied to your teeth to solve any number of problems such as uneven gums and teeth, deep staining, gaps, and misshapen teeth. They not only offer a uniform smile, but also an aesthetically natural one.
No longer do patients have to live with unsightly teeth. Lumineers® are specially designed dental veneers that cover up the imperfections. We recommend them to patients who want a fix for their teeth.
If you’ve got a dental work that needs a little more pizzazz, our Gardena dentist can use Lumineers® to give your teeth a whole new life. Dental crowns, inlays, onlays, and fillings can become worn down and stained over time, but we can brighten them with Lumineers®. Lumineers® are made of tooth-colored composite resin.
The Lumineers® Process
Lumineers® are veneers that are placed without prep work by the dentist. The process is a quick and easy one, and patients will have their Lumineers® tailored to their unique smile without having to worry about an incorrect shade.
Within just two appointments, patients receive an initial examination where our doctor listens to the concerns and desires of the patient, and then impressions are taken which will be used to fashion the veneers.
During the initial examination, we will look for infection and decay to ensure the teeth are healthy. If Lumineers® are placed over unhealthy teeth, the effects of bacteria and decay can become exponentially worse.
When the custom veneers are ready, patients will return to the dentist to have them placed. Using a professional-grade dental adhesive, our dentist will carefully attach Lumineers® to the corresponding teeth.
While bonded securely, patients can feel at ease knowing that we can remove and replace Lumineers® should damage occur from an accident or typical wear and tear from daily use. This process is straightforward and can be done without significant impact to existing dental health.
