A beautiful smile is something that we all want to achieve. It shows we take pride in our appearance and makes a fantastic first impression. There are some ways in which you can get a celebrity-worthy smile from braces to whitening. While you’ve probably considered these options before, it’s less likely that you’ve considered Lumineers. Lumineers, also known as veneers, are custom porcelain shells that cover imperfections on your teeth. This can give you immense confidence and stop you feeling self-conscious about your smile. So whether you have discolored or crooked teeth, here are top four reasons why you should consider Lumineers.
They Make your Smile Whiter
Our teeth can easily get stained and discolored as we get older. Also, it can also be caused by drinking coffee, wine, or by smoking cigarettes. This discoloration can often be challenging to remove, leaving us with a dull and yellow smile. While teeth whitening is a popular option, it needs to be done regularly and is not always effective. Lumineers and veneers, on the other hand, gives your teeth a white and uniformed look. You can choose the shade, which will then be used to create the porcelain shells. The porcelain shells will then be attached to your teeth, hiding the stains from view. This can give your smile a new lease of life by making it look white and cleaner.
They Work Instantly
Unlike braces, which can take years to get results, Lumineers work immediately – in the matter in two appointments. You don’t need to have endless dental appointments or have them adjusted. Your dentist can attach them quickly and transform your teeth in no time at all. This makes Lumineers ideal for patients who don’t want to wait for the smile they’ve always dreamed of.
They are Durable and Long Lasting
Even though they are a quick fix, Lumineers are long lasting and extremely durable. This can be surprising to many patients because the porcelain shells are quite fine. If cared for correctly they can last for decades without needing repairs or replacements. This removes the need for you to spend time and money visiting your dentist for extra appointments.
They can Straighten Teeth
If you’ve got crooked teeth but don’t like braces, Lumineers could be a fantastic option for you. Lumineers and veneers are custom made to fit your mouth and are positioned on top of your misaligned teeth. The procedure is not painful, and you’ll get amazing results without the need of an orthodontist, braces, or retainers. They can also be used to hide gaps between your teeth and any chips or cracks you might have. When you see your new teeth in the mirror, it will be hard not to smile when they look so perfect.
