O’Fallon LUMINEERS Dentist Uses LUMINEERS to Alter the Sizes of Patients’ Teeth

Written by Dr. Brace on Jul 2, 2013

Dental whitening treatments can easily lighten the appearance of dark enamel, and orthodontic treatment straightens misaligned teeth, but what should you do if you suffer from teeth that are poorly proportioned or sized? Unfortunately, many patients believe that there isn’t anything that they can do about this cosmetic issue. Our O’Fallon LUMINEERS dentist office wants every patient to know that with revolutionary LUMINEERS, we can make your teeth appear better balanced and evenly sized.

How does this work?

Because LUMINEERS are porcelain restorations that completely cover existing teeth, they can be crafted to be larger in order to make your teeth appear larger. Your LUMINEERS will be shaped and sized to work with your smile, specifically.

If you have a tooth, for example, that appears to be too short in comparison to your other teeth, our dentist can make your LUMINEER a little longer. Once your LUMINEER is applied, it will simply look like your tooth is longer and in-proportion with the rest of your teeth.

If you have some particularly narrow teeth, we can also craft our LUMINEERS to be a bit wider than your natural teeth. This will not only help your teeth appear larger, but it can also help to close unsightly gaps in your smile. Again, once the LUMINEER is applied, the entirety of your natural tooth will be covered.

With LUMINEERS, you can achieve a more balanced smile in only two or three dental appointments. This treatment is a fast and non-invasive way to drastically transform the appearance of your smile.
