For patients who wish to transform their smiles from less than ideal to perfect, LUMINEERS are quickly becoming one of the most popular cosmetic treatment options. The placement of LUMINEERS is quick, comfortable, and will offer stellar long-term results. In this article we will learn how our Tinley Park dentist will place LUMINEERS in the patient’s mouth.
Teeth must be strong enough to support dental restorations before LUMINEERS are placed. Our experienced dental team will examine your teeth and gum tissue to determine if LUMINEERS can safely be placed. If so, we’ll move to the next step in the treatment process.
The next step is to take a precise mold of your mouth which is used to construct your permanent porcelain dental LUMINEERS. The shape, size, and shade of your LUMINEERS will be custom made to best work with your smile. Before anything is done, we’ll work together in determining exactly what your LUMINEERS should look like. We want to make sure that you end up with the cosmetic smile of your dreams!
Your LUMINEERS are custom made in the DenMat Lab. After they’re built to our specifications, they are sent to our office where we will place them directly on your teeth. Unlike veneers, LUMINEERS don’t require the dentist to file down your teeth, so they will be placed over your existing teeth right away.
A major benefit to LUMINEERS is that they don’t require post-treatment rehabilitation. You’ll be able to jump right back into your normal routine the same day that the LUMINEERS are placed. You’ll be able to eat regularly right away, and brush and floss as usual. LUMINEERS fit in perfectly with your lifestyle.
The major benefit of LUMINEERS is that the treatment process is quick and comfortable. Simply give our Tinley Park dentists a call to get the smile you’ve been dreaming of!
