Lumineers Can Fix Chipped, Stained and Gapped Teeth

Lumineers can be used to treat a wide range of issues regarding teeth, including chips, stains and gaps.

By fully understanding what Lumineers are and how they work, you can determine whether or not they are right for you.

What you need to know about Lumineers

Lumineers provide a long-term option for teeth with imperfections, including teeth that are chipped, stained or have gaps between them.

The following is everything to know about what Lumineers are, how they work and who is a good candidate for them.

What are Lumineers?

Lumineers are a brand of veneers that have gained a lot of attention in the dental industry. They are made of a similar material to traditional veneers, but Lumineers are typically much more thin, while still providing the same amount of durability and tooth support.

Since Lumineers are generally less thick than the traditional veneer, the process of preparing the teeth for them is often much less invasive, and in most cases the patient does not need to remove any enamel to have Lumineers applied to their teeth, which means they may be able to be removed at a later time and are overall much less permanent.

How do Lumineers work?

The process of receiving Lumineers to fix tooth chips, stains and gaps is very similar to the process of receiving traditional veneers — although preparation for Lumineers is often much less invasive. With Lumineers, a procedure to remove enamel from the tooth is not always required, as is typically required with veneers.

After both the patient and dentist agree to Lumineers, an impression is taken of the patient’s mouth to form the mold, which is then used to customize the Lumineers. Once the Lumineers arrive from the lab to the dentist's office — usually one to two weeks later — they are then ready to be bonded to the tooth.

Who is a good candidate for Lumineers?

Anyone who suffers from tooth damage or imperfections for any reason can benefit from Lumineers.

Lumineers can improve the shape, size and function of teeth, which means they work well for fixing chips and gaps in teeth.

Lumineers can also be used to cover up permanent stains on teeth, providing you with a more attractive smile. In many instances, they can also be used to straighten mild forms of dental misalignments, although severe misalignments may require more extensive treatment to fix.

Are Lumineers right for you?

Everyone deserves a set of teeth they can feel comfortable showing off when they smile, and Lumineers can help those with imperfect teeth gain more confidence in their daily life.

Chips, stains and gaps in teeth can cause insecurities and make it harder to feel confident while in social situations, at work and in various other moments of everyday life.
