Contact AZ Dental at 408-437-1111 to learn more about Lumineers in San Jose, California, and schedule your consultation with our talented dentists.
Lumineers are an ultra-thin dental veneer. They are uniquely designed to fit your teeth perfectly, without requiring any of your original tooth structure to be ground down. Lumineers may be a good treatment for you if your smile has one or more cosmetic problems, such as:
- Large gaps between the teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Stained teeth
- Uneven gums and teeth
- Unnatural-looking restorations, such as bridges and crowns
In addition to being a very comfortable treatment, Lumineers are also constructed from Cerinate® porcelain, making them extremely strong and durable, and unlikely to break or chip, and very easy to match to the exact shade of white and level of translucency you desire.
Benefits of Lumineers include:
- No injections, pain, or discomfort
- No harsh drilling or grinding of your tooth structure
- You can place multiple Lumineers at once
- Perfect, pearly-white teeth
- Veneers the thickness of a contact lens
- A completely reversible treatment
- Results that last more than 20 years
You can complete your Lumineer treatment in just two visits with our dentists. During your first appointment, our dentists will take bite impressions and X-rays, and carefully examine your teeth to ensure that no signs of decay or gum disease are present. We will help you select the color and level of transparency for your Lumineers, and send this information and your impressions to a dental lab. When you return for your second appointment, our dentists will bond your Lumineers to your teeth and polish them until smooth to prevent bacteria and staining agents from adhering to your teeth.
Please remember that Lumineers can only be applied if the underlying teeth, bones, and gums are healthy. If you have tooth decay or gum disease, you must receive treatment for that condition before you can receive Lumineers.
