Dr. Kathleen Falsey, DDS is always being asked by patients about the latest cosmetic solutions available. There are several methods for whitening or straightening teeth, but lumineers are the best way to give your smile a complete cosmetic makeover without undergoing a procedure. Lumineers are thin shells made of the highest quality porcelain that bond directly to the surface of your teeth and look like your natural smile.
To outfit a patient with a full set of lumineers, we begin with taking an impression. This impression will be used to ensure a perfect fit for your new smile. Some patients won’t require preparation of the teeth, but depending on your individual case your dentist may want to contour or shave teeth in select places. This is only done when your dentist sees an area they determine could be a problem to fit the shells on. A new set of lumineers is fabricated outside the office, and on a final visit they are bonded directly to the surface of your teeth to wear forever!
