Lumineers

Our Fremont Veneers & Lumineers Services.

Lumineers® are a cosmetic dental treatment that has evolved out of the popularity of traditional dental veneers. They offer an improved, discomfort free version as a popular means to cover stains and gaps, as well as crooked or chipped teeth.  Cosmetic dental treatments became popular from the public usage of Hollywood stars who needed to have bright, white smiles on camera. Cosmetic treatments such as Lumineers have since become a common treatment for people from all walks of life.

Lumineers offer a more convenient version of traditional porcelain veneers, and they have been clinically proven to last over 20 years. They are comprised of a thin porcelain shell, no thicker than a contact lens, which is placed on top of the existing teeth. Unlike traditional veneers, there is no need to remove any tooth enamel to make them fit.

Benefits of the Lumineer® process

Lumineers is a two-appointment pain-free procedure, so there is no need for anesthetic. With limited tooth preparation, tooth sensitivities are eliminated unlike the typical veneer process. It’s a way to get dramatic results quickly, as early as two weeks, and they restore appearance without affecting functionality. And unlike traditional veneers, the procedure is completely reversible, if the patient ever changes their mind. Because there is almost no tooth preparation, there is no need to wear temporary veneers while waiting for the creation of the customized set.

Lumineers have a slight translucency to them, so they look like natural tooth material, and they only add about .3 mm to the front surface of teeth. Traditional veneers are thicker, which is why tooth enamel is removed from the front of teeth to accommodate the added thickness. Traditional veneers are permanently bonded to the surface of the targeted teeth, so there is no changing your mind once the procedure is done.

Dr. Gulati will examine a patient’s teeth prior to diagnosis or selecting a dental procedure. It is important to educate patients about all available cosmetic options so patient receives their desired results. Informed collaborative decisions between dentist and patient will improve the decision making process. Dr. Gulati treats each patient as a unique case so there is never a ‘one-treatment fits all’ approach.

Maintaining the Luster of Lumineers®

Good oral hygiene is imperative to extending the life and shine of Lumineers. Because they do add a small amount of thickness, special care must be taken to clean along the gum line in order to protect against gum disease. However, regular brushing should be enough. Dr. Guliti will advise patients about stain effecting food and drinks to avoids as best as possible. Patients who follow home treatment care will appreciate the long-term results.

Contact Liberty Dental of Fremont, CA and schedule a consultation appointment. Dr. Gulati will examine your teeth to help determine if Lumineers are right for you. Whatever your situation, she will find the best cosmetic solution to correct tooth problems and restore your smile.
