Our Dentist in Novi Discusses Lumineers and the Road Towards a Perfect Smile
Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way and is continually improving day by day. One of its forward-thinking innovations is Lumineers. To help you get acquainted with this dental service, here's what you need to know about Lumineers:
What are Lumineers?
Lumineers are ultra-thin veneers placed over your teeth, but unlike conventional veneers, there is no shaving or grinding down of the original teeth structures. Because Lumineers can be placed without drilling, it is then a reversible procedure, causing no damage or alteration to your teeth. The procedure is pain-free, and the patients will not feel any post-procedure discomfort.
Are you a candidate for Lumineers?
If you're thinking of getting a smile makeover, the best way to know whether or not you are a candidate for a Lumineer procedure is to pay a visit to Smile Innovations. Dr. Tariq will assess whether you're a candidate for this cosmetic option.
How does the procedure work?
Unlike the traditional veneer, which takes about two weeks to complete, Lumineers only take two visits to Smile Innovations.
First Visit: Dr. Tariq takes an accurate impression of your teeth and some photos to ensure the most precise and perfect fit for you. The dental impression are sent to a Lumineer laboratory; this is where your customized Lumineers are created. After Dr. Tariq receives the customized Lumineers, he'll check them to ensure quality and condition.
Second Visit: The second visit is the time when the Lumineers are placed and bonded on your teeth. This takes about over an hour.
