Irving, TX Lumineers
Looking for Lumineers® in Irving, TX
Are you looking for Lumineers® in Irving, TX or even curious about the differences between veneers and Lumineers®? You’re not alone, as this tends to be the most frequently asked question when it comes to cosmetic dentistry and smile enhancement. Lumineers are digitally designed with the use of computer technology to be extremely thin, so that they can be applied seamlessly over your existing tooth. The procedure is generally much less invasive than the process of fitting a porcelain veneer. Both traditional (porcelain) veneers and lumineers are made from porcelain, an extremely strong and long lasting material.
1st Visit of the Procedure
After the initial consultation with your Irving Dentist, we will take impressions of both your upper and lower teeth. We then send this mold to an authorized Lumineers lab along with your records and photos. Unlike traditional veneers, there is no need for drilling or tooth reduction and no temporaries to fit.
2nd Visit of the Procedure
On your second visit into the office (generally a couple weeks later) we will place your Lumineers. Your teeth are minimally etched to prepare the surface for bonding of the veneer. We then make sure the veneers fit firmly and assess your smile and bite to ensure no chipping occurs once bonded into place. And now you get to enjoy your new smile!
