A chipped tooth, coffee stains, worn enamel and other minor damage may not be a big deal to you for the health of your smile, but all of these common issues can really age your smile. They can also make you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed about the way you look. Luckily, there are several ways you can deal with these problems. One of the easiest methods for covering these flaws may just be Lumineers. Our Northridge Lumineers dentist can help you decide if Lumineers are right for you.
Lumineers are a special type of veneers that require no-prep. They are ultra-thin layers of porcelain that are placed over the visible surface of your teeth to act as shields. This creates a new outer surface that is free of chips, stains and other flaws. Our expert in Lumineers in Northridge can use Lumineers to completely change the look and feel of your smile.
Since Lumineers are so thin, the process is fast and incredibly easy for you. At your initial consultation, our Northridge Lumineers dentist will learn more about you, your smile and your goals. This ensures that we design the best smile for you. We then work closely with you to pick the shape, color and other features of your smile. You will have dental impressions taken for the lab to use when creating your new smile precisely. Once your Lumineers are ready, they can be bonded right to your teeth without the need for any drilling or enamel removal.
You may be a candidate if you have small, misshapen, slightly uneven, discolored, chipped or worn teeth. You should have good dental health and a smile free of untreated cavities or gum disease before placing the Lumineers, though. Our expert in Lumineers in Northridge can explain each of your options and our specific recommendations for you. If you are a candidate for Lumineers, you can have your new smile in just two to three dental visits. Lumineers can last as long as 20 years or more with good dental care, and they can remain beautiful and stain-free as long as they last.
