Lumineers are very thinly shaped porcelain that is bonded to your tooth. These are a great alternative to surgery or painful treament. The fact that they are very thin allows us to minimize the preparation of the tooth to create beautiful transformations of your teeth. Teeth appear more straight and white! Lumineers are a great option for those with large gaps in between the teeth, misaligned teeth, misshapen teeth, stained teeth, uneven gums and teeth, or unnatural looking bridges and crowns. They are long lasting (20 years), pain-free, and completely reversible. Multiple Lumineers can be applied at a time.
The procedure often requires 1-2 visits. During your first appointment, impressions and X-rays will be taken to determine the exact shape of your teeth so that the Lumineers bond perfectly to your teeth. During this appointment, Dr. Okoniewski will discuss what color and shape you hope to achieve. At your second appointment, if needed, Dr. Okoniewski will bond the Lumineers to your teeth. Once they are bonded, they will be polished and smoothed, leaving you with a beautiful white smile.
Due to the fact that there is minimal preparation, there is often little to no discomfort in this procedure.
