The Distinction Between Lumineers and Porcelain Veneers
Posted by Marine Martirosyan of
A healthy-looking smile is much more attainable than in years past due to the introduction of advanced veneers treatments. The history of these restorations extend back to the early 20th century. Veneers are becoming increasingly popular as cosmetic dental treatments. They provide a dramatic improvement to the appearance of the existing teeth. In addition, patients have a number of choices when it comes to dental veneers: Lumineers and traditional porcelain veneers. Lumineers are a thinner and lighter version of porcelain veneers. They are composed of porcelain material referred to as Cerinate, which allows for more durability and less material consumption. They are no thicker than contact lenses and can be applied without using local anesthesia. The process also does not require chipping off and sanding existing teeth. They primarily treat tooth misalignment and gaps in the smile. Traditional porcelain veneers are highly regarded for their attractive, medical-grade material, creating a visually responsive appearance. They are thick and during placement, may require the removal of existing tooth material. They are individually crafted for specific patients and when applied correctly, provide a lifelike restoration of the patient's smile. There are a number of benefits to having both options. The important course of action for patients to do in determining which one is more advantageous for their case is to schedule a consultation with their cosmetic dentist. The dentist can identify which issues can be best corrected by either Lumineers or porcelain veneers.Click Here for Provider's Detail Page
