Veneer & Lumineers Q & A
Veneers are small, thin caps that Dr. Ghorbani (formerly ‘Mashoof’) can permanently attach to your teeth to cover up imperfections. They’re made from porcelain, and they’re customized to match the exact shade of your natural teeth.
Lumineers are similar to veneers, but they’re typically thinner. They, too, are made from porcelain.
Like veneers, they’re designed to match your natural teeth. But because they’re thinner, they’re easier to attach.
Both veneers and Lumineers can help to transform your smile. They’re thin, natural-looking, and painless. But most patients prefer Lumineers because they’re more resistant to cracking or leakage. They can also last longer than traditional veneers.
Lumineers can address a wide range of cosmetic dental concerns, including:
- Chips and cracks
- Stains or discolorations
- Slight overlapping or crowding
- Gum line concerns
At your first appointment, Dr. Ghorbani will take impressions of your teeth, so your Lumineers can be customized for you. He may also lightly buff or reshape the tooth or teeth so the porcelain will fit snugly over the surface.
Once your Lumineers are ready, you can schedule a second appointment, and he’ll attach them to your teeth. That’s all you need.
Lumineers are an easy way to fix your smile quickly and correct long-standing cosmetic concerns.
