Q: Is it painful to get LUMINEERS?

A: No, the LUMINEERS treatment process is quick and comfortable. Because LUMINEERS are so thin, our dental team does not need to remove much dental structure prior to placing these aesthetic restorations. Once your teeth are prepped with will simply bond your LUMINEERS in place, and cure the bonding so that it attaches to your teeth permanently. If you are prone to suffering from sensitivity or discomfort in the dentist’s chair, we offer sedation treatments to keep you comfortable.

Q: How do I know LUMINEERS will look right on my smile?

A: Our dentist customizes LUMINEERS to ensure that our individual patients end up with smiles that they love. As part of LUMINEERS treatment we shape, size, and shade every LUMINEER to enhance the patient’s dental aesthetics. Once a LUMINEER is in place, it will look natural and blend seamlessly with adjacent teeth. If you have questions about how your LUMINEERS will look, talk to your dental team for further clarification!

Q: How long does LUMINEER treatment take?

A: One reason that so many patients love LUMINEERS is that this treatment can generally be completed in just two or three dental appointments. You will first come in for our team to prep your teeth and take an impression of those teeth that will receive LUMINEERS. Then, once the restorations have been crafted, you’ll come back in so that we can fit them and bond them in place.
