Are LUMINEERS Right For You? Our O’Fallon Cosmetic Dentist Helps You Decide

With so many aesthetic treatments available today, it can be overwhelming for patients to assess their options independently. That’s why our O’Fallon cosmetic dentists are here to help you learn everything you need to know about cosmetic dentistry. In today’s short article we’re going to be discussing one type of cosmetic treatment, in particular: the LUMINEER. 

The first step to determining whether LUMINEERS can work for you is to understand exactly what this treatment can do. LUMINEERS are thin individual restorations that are used to resurface a patient’s teeth. Our team uses them to close gaps between teeth, lengthen disproportionally short enamel, cover discolored or irregular enamel, and even make teeth appear better aligned. In fact, many patients choose LUMINEERS over other cosmetic treatments, because they can achieve all of these cosmetic goals using just one treatment. 

Then, you want to think about whether LUMINEER treatment fits into your treatment timeline. The good thing about LUMINEERS is that they can generally be crafted and placed in just two or three appointments; this truly one of the fastest ways to achieve a complete smile transformation.

Once your LUMINEERS are in place, you’ll find that you really don’t have to alter your regular routine at all in order to accommodate them. You’ll be able to clean your smile normally: brushing, flossing, and keeping up with your regular schedule of professional cleanings. You’ll still be able to eat your favorite foods and drink your favorite beverages. LUMINEERS are designed to fit into your life!

When you meet with our O’Fallon LUMINEER dentists, we’ll be able to give you more information about how this treatment works, and to answer any questions that you may have. We’ll also assess the current state of your smile to determine whether you’re a good candidate for LUMINEERS. When you’re ready to get started, please feel free to give our office a call and schedule a consultation!
