At Pawhuska Dental, we offer a brand of dental veneer that can be applied on the teeth surface without the need for shavings which most people find to be favorable. The patient does not need to be anesthetized or sedated as the treatment can be performed smoothly without causing any pain or discomfort. To know more about Lumineers, here are the common questions asked about the process with its corresponding answers!
How does Lumineer differ from regular veneers?
As previously mentioned, Lumineers can be applied on the front surface of the teeth without the need for any enamel removal. It is made possible by reducing the thickness of the material placed on the teeth. Lumineers are ultra-thin, so thin that they are even compared to contact lenses. Despite this, the material used is still extremely durable.
How long does the procedure take?
The application of the veneers requires at least two dental visits that can last no more than an hour each. For the patient’s convenience, it can even be scheduled during their lunch breaks.
Are there any food restrictions after the placement of Lumineer?
Once the veneer has been bonded on the teeth, the patients are free to eat and drink whatever they want. But they should remember to observe proper dental hygiene and schedule regular visits for the maintenance of their smiles.
What to expect during the procedure?
To complete the placement of Lumineers two appointments are required.
- First Visit: It all starts with a consultation with a dentist certified to provide Lumineers. Molds of both the upper and lower teeth will be taken as well as current photos of the patient’s oral structures. These records will be sent to an off-site laboratory that would custom create the prosthesis.
- Second Visit: Weeks later, the patient should return to the dental office and have the veneers applied on their teeth. Before bonding the prostheses, it will be fitted on the teeth for the dentist to check if proper fittings are achieved. The teeth that will receive the veneer will be prepared by slightly etching its surface. The dental professional will then review the bite of the patient to make sure that no factor can cause the veneer to chip or break. Lumineers will be bonded to each tooth carefully. Finally, its placement will be checked to make sure that everything is properly in place.
