O’Fallon LUMINEERS Dentist Walks You Through LUMINEERS Treatment

Written by Dr. Brace on Jan 28, 2014

Have you been considering cosmetic dentistry treatment to enhance your smile? If so, you will benefit from this short article, which gives you more information about one cosmetic treatment in particular—LUMINEERS. Our O’Fallon LUMINEERS dentist office wants you to have all of the information you need in order to choose the perfect treatment for you.

The LUMINEERS treatment process is designed to effectively resurface all types of teeth with thin porcelain restorations. LUMINEERS are so thin that they do not require our dentist to file down your natural teeth in order to make them fit. LUMINEERS can be attached to your healthy teeth without looking bulky or unnatural.

When you first come in to see our dentist, our dental team will take a look at your teeth and make sure that your smile is healthy enough for treatment. If you have any existing cavities or dental infections, we will treat these prior to cosmetic treatment.

We’ll next discuss what, exactly, you would like to improve about your smile. Some patients want to lighten their teeth, while others want to fix misalignment; we can help all types of patients with LUMINEERS.

Our dental team will then take a mold of your current teeth. This will allow us to make sure that your LUMINEERS fit your smile perfectly. Once your LUMINEERS are crafted, all we have to do is adhere the LUMINEERS to your teeth. Your smile will look perfected in just two or three dental appointments, and you will not have to suffer through a lengthy recovery period post-treatment.

As you can see LUMINEERS are transforming patients’ smiles with beautiful, durable porcelain. For more information about this treatment, and other cosmetic options, please feel free to contact our O’Fallon dentist office by phone or through our website. We are here to help you!
