People with gaps, cracks, unevenness and discoloration in their teeth will need a permanent dental solution. Lumineers are a thin, progressive form of veneers. People in need of a corrective solution should know what veneers do and consider the services provided by New Dental Images. We help people in need of Lumineers in Sacramento and Elk Grove.
Veneers, also known as laminates, are items fitted to the teeth. Usually created from white porcelain or composite resin, the design is made to cure all cosmetic teeth problems from gaps to cracks to misalignment. The porcelain type is preferred more because it is more durable and longer lasting.
Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers are thinner and attachable with minimal preparation. We do not have to cut or file down the teeth, which reduces the pain and discomfort of the attachment. The process is quick and requires no injections or invasive surgery. It only takes a few visits, to finish. For the first consultation visit, Dr. Dang makes an impression and sends it to a lab. For the second visit, we make a mold of the teeth. Unlike veneers, anesthesia is not needed to reduce the pain and the teeth are not scraped. In the case of veneers, we have to adjust the teeth significantly, sometimes drilling the teeth to make them thinner. There is no drilling involved with Lumineers.
Lumineers are reversible and removable so that the tooth structure remains natural. The product is versatile and can be fitted onto crowns or bridges without the need for replacements. The strength of the product allows it to last for twenty years with minimal maintenance needs. The technology is improving so that the procedure becomes more beneficial and convenient in the future. Some patients benefit from the use of Lumitray Technology, which is a digital preview of the new teeth attachments.
